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

Hi DJ, have you ever found yourself in a spot where you had to decide whether to give up or keep going? How did you make the choice?
I see my family, I look at my life and always think about how much more I want to be. I’m always hungry for more, to be bigger and better than who I am now. If I give up I would be cheating myself that would mean I’m just settling and I don’t settle. I work hard in everything I do, every event that I’m booked I make sure I give my 100% plus more. I know God has a plan for me and he wouldn’t want me to give up. I always ask for strength and for him to bless me with opportunities and he always comes through. My goal is be my very best at what I do and become the person who doesn’t have to introduce themselves when they walk into a room. That’s how much of a positive impact I want to have so giving up is never an option.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Being a professional DJ was okay for me but having my own business “Teratory Entertainment LLC” is bigger. I don’t want people to just know my name but what I do and what I come with. Mixes, events, commercials, tags, engineering, etc. I come with a lot with and it wasn’t easy, I had to learn and practice. It was challenging but I didn’t give up I got help from my mentor Marvin Nelson and he showed me some of the ropes and I just went from there. I want the world to see me as one of the greatest female entrepreneurs who had a vision and only expanded in the world. It’s crazy because now I feel I’m just warming up but greatest is on the way.
