We had the good fortune of connecting with LV THE ARTIST and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi LV, how do you think about risk?
Ive always been a risk taker by default. Something rooted deep within has always had a desire to try the impossible and test my abilities, my limits. One thing I can attest to, risk taking comes with a high probability of failing at least once or twice or a hundred times, but it’s also come with the biggest rewards I couldn’t have even imagined as well. My piece of advice associated with taking a big risk, is that there are still ways to take “smart” risks. I have done the whole, “throw something against the wall and see if it sticks” approach, and that’s when I failed miserably, lost money and took giant leaps backwards. This however, taught me that had I just don’t a little bit of researched and slowed down and assessed the opportunity properly, it actually could have had a much different outcome. Risk is an important part of having major success, sure you can achieve financial comfortability by working a normal 9-5 job, saving and playing it safe, but if you want the big rewards, taking risk may be essential to materializing that reality. The key to minimizing failure while taking risk is slowing down, analyzing your strategy and doing a ton of research before diving in! This could be switching career paths, investing in the stock market, buying real estate, starting a new business, anything. Research, planning and following through with an execution process is still the recipe..

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I still consider myself an up and coming pop artist, however the last ten years have brought me a lot to be proud of. I have a strong community of people who relate to and love my music that I am so grateful for. I think just my life experiences alone in general and within the music industry give me my own story therefore separating me from others. Is it easy? No, its never easy its quite challenging to be honest but I love music, I love writing, I love the release that it gives me and knowing that people, both women and men resonate with my words, and find healing, happiness, and connection to my lyrics makes it worth all the hard work! I have learned that people will come and go from your life, and it’s just important to stay true to yourself and who you are, and never give up on yourself. Having a solid team is important, but no one can want it more than you do, and eventually some people will jump off the train, even though you may be scarred from certain experiences or people, you have to stay open to new people, with new ideas because sometimes it brings out a whole other side of yourself you haven’t met yet.

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.
So I am a water baby, that’s my favorite part about living in south Florida. I always recommend either a beach day or renting a boat with jet skis if its possible financially. Then the second best thing about Miami is the culinary amazingness! I am a sucker for fine dining, some of my favorite restaurants are Jaya at the Seitai, Mila, Kyu, the list is never ending. I also recommend checking out Wynwood area. There are still quite a few things I still need to check out myself like some of the famous museums!
