We had the good fortune of connecting with DJ Newmark and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi DJ, alright, let’s jump in with a deep one – what’s you’re definition for success?
I define success as not being a matter of winning or loosing, its all about being able to achieve established goals. Realistic goal setting is very important in the measurement of success. What may look like a failure to some, can also be viewed as a success to others due to the accomplishments that were achieved during the process.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Growing up as the son of a military serviceman, I traveled throughout the world and learned to DJ for local crowds within the areas I lived. After high school, I enlisted into the military and continued to travel while DJing around the world for various crowds playing a variety of music. Being self confident in my DJing skills and having the ability to talk with people to establish networking opportunities is the essence of my success. My diverse background in musical influences sets me apart from most DJ’s. Many DJ’s are specifically tuned to their local cities musical preference and cannot effectively perform outside of their comfort zone. I overcome those types of challenges due to the many years of traveling and performing in front of many types of audiences and playing many types of music. Dream big, make a plan on how to accomplish your dreams and then set small realistic goals within the process to milestone your way to the ultimate goal of what success means to you.

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?
Because of the heavy traffic area in Miami, I would encourage them to land in Fort Lauderdale. As a Korean food lover, I would then take them to Manna Korean BBQ Restaurant in Lauderhill for the best dinning experience possible. At night, we will head to South Beach for some evening entertainment at Mango’s Tropical Cafe. The following day would consist of taking them to a major sight seeing event of how the rich and famous live by taking them on a Jungle Queen cruise and buffet.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My shoutout goes to my wife and kids. My family has had to adapt to my unpredictable schedule over the years and accept that my schedule may prevent me to being in attendance to family functions like “movie night” or just being home to be a husband and dad.
