We had the good fortune of connecting with Brandi Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brandi, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking.
Risk taking for me is what sets me apart from many people simply because I’ve learned that Journalism is a competitive, yet highly rewarding field. It’s the backbone of the media industry and is critical to a high functioning democracy. To be successful as a journalist, you must have a passion for truth, honesty and integrity, and the guts to go out and get the story.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What sets me apart from others in the media field is that I’ve learned that i can look at another person doing better than me, and i get motivated. Where most people look at them and become envious or even irritated when there is a seat at the table for everyone to win and i just had to say to myself “we are not the same” what’s motivating to me others have a different perspective. What I’m most excited about is that i finally apologized to myself for the things i let get away from me for the lack of believing in myself and once i was able to turn that around what i do is so much more rewarding that being relevant. How i got to where i am today is just by simply praying, manifesting, and affirming that everything i thought i couldn’t do I’ve out worked myself which showcased my drive and passion on levels i never knew existed and has opened doors that where once closed. It wasn’t easy but it was definitely worth it because my entire way of thinking changed so now when i look at were I’m headed i realized there are three types of people that i can create and have full control over which is becoming billionaire with all of the people who truly supports me, a millionaire because I’m responsible for my success, & the best part is i will be able to witness it before anyone. So what i want the world to know is a question i get asked all the time about i do and my answer will never change “ i do whatever it takes and that giving up is no longer or will it ever be an option.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my friends came to miami to visit me I’d literally take them on a day in a life with me which would consist of eating at restaurants were there favorite actors have eaten and share memories over a complete sea food boil and wine. Also if i have a set day that I’m assigned take them on the journey and share the experience for example when my best friend of 29 years came to visit she had the opportunity to meet some of her favorite celebrity icons being apart of love and hip miami season3 as an extra with me meeting the cast and getting to meet people that when we where younger we would only dream about meeting but i was able to make it a reality which was life changing and it brought us tears of joy showing her that nothing is impossible . And close the trip out with pictures that would last a life time so that we can grow old and talk about it with our children which nothing will ever compare.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
On the behalf of The Art Of Noise i honestly would have to recognize Natalie Odell, YougEzee day n which they are Youtubers / Authors & influencers as well , however there success made me realize that success can not happen without failure it’s more so just learning and understanding that were there comes some losses follows more wins in ones career. I say that because i purchased there E-Book called “Mastering The Art Of Social Media” which was them giving and showing me amongst millions of people there blueprints toward there success leaving tips on how i could advance and i can truly say it helped to open my mind. Also The Wadedifferent podcast Founded by Dwayne Wade Sr to whom interviewed me at a showcase in miami Florida and me being unprepared simply because i went to an event to support a friend only to leave with an opportunity of a life time but in return seeing how i inspired them. Which has been very pivotal toward career to know that i can also inspire the ones i look up to. And even during this pandemic they’ve reached out since January 30th when the original interview took place to not only check on me and my family but to always extend out that they want to see how them and myself can progress after this is all said and done so i salute to both platforms for seeing my worth and value without me having to sacrifice anything to actually see me and my talents.
