We had the good fortune of connecting with Sean Lexima and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sean, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
My work life balance has often teetered depending on the season. Teaching and Coaching is extremely demanding and can often leave me exhausted during basketball season. However, the music is a passion of mine that allows me to just be…. I’m learning to schedule my time allotted to creating and managing my workload, but I feel that I’ve done a pretty good job so far.
I view balance as a direct reflection of one’s discipline and awareness.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My most proud moment would have to be when my mother attended one of my performances with The Village. This was the first time she had ever witnessed me perform.
Professionally I’ve had to take the Longway to get to where I am now. Nothing was handed to me in the Teaching/Coaching profession or the music realm. To be honest, I believe that I’ve received more resistance because of the uniqueness.
At the end of the day I want people to know that I was authentic and did my best to lead with love. These hats I wear are an extension of my heart.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
To be quite honest, I am a true homebody! Especially since the world shut down last year. If my friend were to come in town, we’d probably end up in somebodies studio.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Ultimately, The Most High has been my greatest supporter along this journey. Outside of that, I draw a lot of my strength from the dedication of my team. The Village has always supported my growth. Keelon Donnel has spent countless hours creating beats and listening to my dreams in lyric form while inspiring me through rhythm. While Shaad has challenged me to sharpen my sword (pen).
