“Be you. Sharing your authentic self with the world will take you farther than you can imagine.”

I had the pleasure of interviewing Esnavi, Top 40 Recording Artist — Print Model and Voiceover Artist.

What is your “backstory”?

Can you share the funniest or most interesting story that occurred to you in the course of your music career?

What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now?

Who are some of the most famous people you have interacted with? What was that like? Do you have any stories?

Which people in history inspire you the most? Why?

What would you advise to an aspiring artist who would like to emulate your career?

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why.

2) Don’t pursue this for money. I pursued music because I love it, but I also wanted to make money. I soon realized that this is not an industry to make money fast. Unless you’re a rare overnight success that goes viral on YouTube or something, be patient for those checks to start rolling in.

3) It will require a huge investment in yourself. You have to invest so much of your time, your money, your energy and everything else you have to be taken seriously and to become successful.

4) It takes time. I heard stories about people who seemed like they came out of nowhere and blew up. Truth is, they were doing it for years. I know now that it takes time to reach certain levels in this industry and at first I thought it could happen magically overnight.

5) Stay ready. You always want to be prepared for what you ask for and when the opportunity comes, you have to be ready. I missed out on some great opportunities in the beginning of my career because I wasn’t “ready.”

Is there a person in the world, or in the US whom you would love to have a private breakfast or lunch with, and why?
