We had the good fortune of connecting with Jneshia and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jneshia, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Taking risks has played a vital role in both my life and career. I call it a necessary evil bc you never know what you’ll end up with and the only reason I say evil is because with any risk you’re exposing yourself to potential failure but failure isn’t a bad thing if you no how to use it which I believe is what separates entrepreneurs from successful business owners. An older guy actually a perfect stranger at the time gave me a very useful gem and you’d think that it’s quite obvious but it’s not for a lot of young people. He said “have as few regrets as possible and the best way to do that is to not be afraid to make the decision that you think are risks.” At the time I didn’t fully understand what he meant but I’ve come to learn that I’d rather regret the things that I did do instead of the things that I didn’t bc it’s a win win regardless. I’m either learning from my mistakes and building a solid foundation for success or I’m taking another step in the right direction. But the biggest thing I got from what he said and I’ve actually experienced is you’ll get no where being too afraid to just take a step whether it be the right or the wrong step and I’ve personally gotten closer to my goals more in the past year taking risks than I did in the past two years trying to make all the right decisions.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets me apart from a lot of other artist is that I like to ride in different artistic lanes and I can adapt to different musical realms. I can also sing and rap both really well I don’t do either just for sport but bc they both allow me to communicate my thoughts in more than just one way. Music is an art for me not just a scheme to get money which pushes me more than anything to make records that are timeless.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Let’s see, to start off I’d take them to graffiti park it’s a great spot if you want a hint of the culture in the area, afterward maybe hit seaside lounge for they’re fire wings and drinks and if we trying to just turn up for the night maybe go to kamp Houston or Bar 2200. And let’s not speak on brunch! My favorite brunch spots in Houston rn or Union kitchen and Phil and Derecks hands downs. After go for a hike at Buffalo bayou to work off breakfast and I’m not sure after that lol. Point is it’s alotta dope spots in Houston! Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to shoutout all the creative minds that I’ve came in contact with in the past couple of years. All the amazing conversations, projects and interactions highlighted the things that I never want to alter about myself out of fear of being different and misunderstood.
