We had the good fortune of connecting with Tyshon tufi and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tyshon, what role has risk played in your life or career?
My perspective on what “risk” is in the business world is that it’s a matter of either gaining a “Win” or enduring a “Loss.” I don’t recommend exclusively relying on risk-taking but being open to taking risks in certain scenarios. In business, it’s important to know what you’re putting on the line and strategizing in order to take educated risks. It’s important for me to do all the necessary research, so I can consider all available options before making a decision that may change the trajectory of my career. Risk-taking has molded me into the person I am today because I’ve experienced both wins and losses. I’m the type of person who seeks advice from others who may have the answers I’m looking for, yet I will still move forward with what I want to do because I enjoy having my own experiences. Most people would call this stubbornness; I call it faith. As a music artist, I value being unique and being true to myself. It gives me the opportunity to fill the space of diversity in the music industry, and I think that requires taking the risk of trying things that others wouldn’t. In music, I don’t mind taking risks because it encourages me to exit my comfort zone and experience growth with what’s to come. Ultimately, I must put all faith In the Most High and trust that He gives me the intuition I need to make the best choice.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I think what’d I be most excited about is my future. I only see success and happiness as I elevate. I’ve come a long way on this journey and i’m aware that i’m here because of many factors such as God, my loved ones, and the ambition inside of me to let the world hear what I have to say. Along the way I learned that everyone isn’t a true friend. I think the word friend is used very loosely in society and to me friendship is something you earn over time. It has to be proven. I want the world to know that I take self identity seriously, especially for the black community. We don’t know who were are and I think thats what keeps us in the position we’re in because if we understood where we came from we’d be the greatest people on earth. I’m tired of all the curses we have to deal with on a daily basis and I just want people to know that one day things will take a 360.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
For places to eat and drink I would recommend 3 natives, Miller Ale house, and Wendy’s for breakfast. In Orlando the spots I would go to for fun would be paint balling, roller blading, and bowling.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
