We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Christine Jobson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr. Christine, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my success is to be true to who I am. I know who I am as an artist and as a business woman. There are certain things that I won’t compromise in the name of being successful. Once I’m clear about those things, I know how to make decisions while maintaining a clear vision for myself. I also try to surround myself with like minded people.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
When I was younger, I realized that music was my passion and that I wanted my life to be filled with music. However, I wasn’t quite sure how I would support myself as a full time musician. I’m thankful that I’ve found ways to support myself as a professional singer, producer, songwriter, music educator, and small business owner. I had no idea that there was such a large variety of ways to earn an income. Thankfully, I’ve had great mentors/colleagues/and friends who’ve provided guidance along the way. I’ve always been pretty driven, so that helped too. I don’t give up easily!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’d take a friend to Wynwood to take in the art scene. We’d catch a show at the Adrienne Arsht Center at some point. We’d also take a quick day cruise from Bayside and then we’d spend some time on South Beach during the day. Also, museums. I love them so perhaps we’d go to the Frost Museum of Science.
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?
I’d like to shoutout Oakwood University and Miami Union Academy, two schools that were key to cultivating my musical talents at an early age.
