We had the good fortune of connecting with Herby Louijeune and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Herby, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I didn’t really set out with the intention of starting a business, I have always been involved in music. My passion grew from making mixes in my spare time to DJ’ing my friends parties. At the first party a friend pointed out my talent and suggested I take things to the next level. Through growth of being booked by friends and acquaintances DOUSS Entertainment came to be.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My vision sets me apart from others. Im trying to build a legacy not just a DJ/Artist. I’m most excited about working/connecting with and different Artist from different states, cities, and countries. Hard work, dedication, and consistency helped me become who I am today. It was not easy, however like Virat Kohli said Self-belief and Hard-work will always earn you success. Applying this philosophy I was able to over come my challenges. I’ve learned if you want something go after it, because no body will hand it to you. I want the world to know IM JUST GETTING STARTED.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would first check into a nice and luxurious Air BnB. Our week would be filled with exciting and fun activities. Monday- We would rent a yacht and spend the day in the water, visit a couple of sandbars and end the day with Jet Ski’s Tuesday-Take a wine tour and visit Wynwood Wednesday – Back to South Beach. Start at the pier, go for a walk, swim, and lounge around. Stroll Ocean drive and head over to Little Havana for epic food Thursday- Head over to Palm beach and do downtown west palm for a food tour, shopping in the afternoon, and dinner Friday- Greenmarket, Paint with a twist, Indoor Kart racing, dinner, and a night out EPIC night out at the HOTTEST Club with my playing Saturday- Brunch, Bike ride, and an EPIC night out at the HOTTEST Club with my playing Sunday- Soccer and Laughs with friends and then we rest
