How I became a Corporate DJ. Part 1
Honestly, it was surreal the first few times it happened. I went from being a wedding DJ to a high profile corporate event DJ in a flash. My first few clients were Google, Twitter and Disney and I couldn’t help but wonder how I got here, or more importantly how do I stay here!?
There’s no doubt about it, I suffer from imposter syndrome. Put simply, I’m always worried that someone is going to tell me I don’t belong here and tell me to leave. It’s almost as if I’ve been living a fantasy for years. Never having really been good at what I do, just some how getting hired over and over again to do huge events even inspire of my own perceived merit.
Over the years I’ve realized that I’ve watched and trained under the best in the business, honing my own skills as I take pieces away from the DJ’s and MC’s that have inspired me. I was naturally good at what I did, DJ’ing and Hosting parties, but it wasn’t until I left my small pond and took a dip into the much much bigger waters that I realized I still had much to learn.
