Jordan Royale Talks About How He Became A Successful Rapper & Actor

Published

on

I recently had the oppurtunity to interview Jordan Royale. Jordan is an Actor & Rapper from LA with over 3 Million streams on spotify. Check out Jordan here!Check out the conversation we had below.

1. WHO IS JORDAN ROYALE IN REAL LIFE?

Not quite sure how I’m supposed to answer this question haha. I’m always wrapped up in my work; recording songs, verses, calls back and forth between management and producers. I WAS doing a ton of acting work. I worked on 50 Cent’s ‘For Life,’ the entire first season when I lived in New York last year. Los Angeles announced that film and tv production work can continue, but I have yet to see acting work resume the way it was before Covid-19 spread like wildfire.

2.WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO MAKE A CAREER IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?

I started playing violin at the age of 5. Music has always fueled my soul. Everything I do, music MUST BE PLAYING haha. I recorded some songs in a dorm room in 2009 and it’s never been the same since.

3.WHAT PROBLEMS DID YOU FACE DURING YOUR CAREER?

I still face problems to this day, I think everyone does. So I wouldn’t necessarily say that problems just disappear when you reach a certain height on the totem pole. A personal hurdle that was the hardest for me, was accepting that people were always gonna talk, have something to say, and not understand my career path. I slowly was able to let that go. It was such a struggle for a long time. Honestly that can really be the thing that holds back a lot of artists, WORRYING TOO MUCH ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK. And by worrying about what people think, you are not only looking in the past, but you also can’t look ahead as you are too worried what’s behind you.

4.WHAT WAS THAT ONE MOMENT IN YOUR CAREER THAT GAVE YOU A SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT?

JORDAN: Several answers I could give here…

When I was on America’s Got Talent.
When I created the Pornhub Anthem.
When I reached my first 100,000 on a song on Spotify
When I was on Hot 97 FM New York
When I was on Power 105.1 New York
When I was on Shade 45 Sirius XM
When I worked on ‘For Life’ and got to meet 50 Cent

5.WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO SOMEONE WHO IS JUST STARTING OUT?

Answer will always be the same. Be yourself. Don’t try to create a character. You’ll get tired of putting on the clown outfit after a while. Build a team. Invest yourself. Learn about music marketing and start implementing it. If you can’t do it yourself, find someone who can. And always remember, no one in your circle is gonna work as hard as you are, so don’t wait around for Willy Wonka’s golden ticket to the chocolate factory.

6.DO YOU THINK AN EDUCATIONAL QUALIFICATION IS NECESSARY TO SUCCEED IN LIFE?

Not necessarily, but then again if I had a dollar for every time someone thought they knew everything and were dead wrong, I’d be a rich man. If I could redo it myself, I would’ve gone to school for music business. There’s also plenty of people out there that have degrees and are complete idiots. You can learn all the information in the world, but if you don’t learn how to apply that information, you’re no different than anyone else. As far as entrepreneurs are concerned, you have to stand out and do something different in marketing and product to succeed.

7.IS THERE SOMETHING YOU’D LIKE TO SAY TO OUR READERS?

Thanks for taking the time to check out my interview. If you’re an artist yourself, I wish you all the success in the world and I hope you never stop.

8.IS THERE SOMETHING YOU’D LIKE TO SAY TO NWSPPR?

JORDAN ROYALE: Thank you Nwsppr as well. This was quite a different approach to an interview and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wish continued success for you guys too.

2. How did you find your interest in Tech?

If I think about it, I’ve always been interested in tech. Thanks to my parents, I always had a lot of
tech stuff in my house and my passion for tech only grow because of this. Technology has and
will always be a very big part of my life.

3. Why did you decide to start Technolobe?

I wanted to start something of my own and the best industry was tech because of my immense
passion. Now at first I tried writing blogs, making websites and all but that wasn’t for me. So one
fine day I decided to give youtube a try. Almost 4 years later, I am glad that I gave this a try. Making videos about tech products is a pretty cool job.

Yes. I strongly believe that education plays a big part in your life. A well educated person will always have a lot of career options and paths. Education shapes a person in an excellent way. Also, going to college is an incredible experience. The people you meet, new things you learn, friendships that you make, etc. make it all worth it.

Learn How Innovative Barber Jacob Joseph Is Dominating The Haircut Industry!

Published

Jacob Joseph


Jacob Joseph is a Magna Cum Laude Alumni with a degree in Accounting who followed his dreams of becoming a barber. In pursuit of his dreams, Jacob attended an apprenticeship program with “Barber Club” and that was when things changed for the better. 

Today, he is a licensed barber and he has achieved unprecedented success with his Instagram platform. Jacob is one of the only few barbers in the industry who has a follower base of over 100,000 on Instagram. 

In this article, we will discuss the passion behind Jacob’s dreams; the success he attained, and some of the steps he took to ensure that he overcame challenges thrown at him. 


Overcoming Challenges 

Like many business owners, Jacob also had a fair share of challenges. Challenges are not uncommon with business owners and businesses, without them, these individuals and they’re businesses won’t grow.  

Pursuing his dream of becoming a barber proved to be a roadblock to him. In order to overcome these challenges, Jacob surrounded himself with people who were successful. These people, their actions, and habits motivated Jacob to become the man he is today.

“My mentors taught me that the best way to deal with challenges as an entrepreneur is by taking them head-on as they come.” – Jacob Shares


Outstanding skills 

Jacob Joseph believes that his determination helped his success. “I always put my faith and trust in God. He has always blessed me in my life and I continue to give gratitude and thanks to Him”. He said.  

Jacob also added that persistence and discipline are important to achieve your goal.


Drawing Inspiration & Upholding Healthy Practices

Jacob reveals that he has two main drivers which push me to succeed. 

The first would be his parents who were immigrants from the middle east and started a whole new life in this country.  As teenagers, they were able to build up a successful hair salon from scratch to provide for their family. 

Their hard work and tenacity are what pushes him to become as successful as he possibly can in order to give his family and himself the financial freedom that they want. 

Another inspiration that pushes him to be at the top of his game is the mindset of not settling. He has made it a statue not to be another barber in the game. Jacob wants to set a standard in my industry. Someone that other barbers can look up to, someone his colleagues can depend on. “I don’t like to be average. I know I have more to offer.” -Jacob says.

God has blessed us and given all of us special skills and talents to show the world! I want to make sure that I can give back to Him!”

Jacob further told us that in order to uphold healthy practices you have to hold yourself accountable for every action you take.  Burnouts are inevitable for human beings. The best way to deal with burnouts is to take as much rest as possible in order to recharge. 


Significant Achievements 

Prior to graduating from college, Jacob developed a passion for cutting hair and aspired to achieve his goal. Today, Jacob is a licensed barber and in less than a year he has grown his Instagram account from less than a thousand followers to more than 100k followers where he publicly displays his skills and has helped him build a solid digital footprint. 

This growth has opened doors to many sponsorships with different companies including Gammaplusna. 


Words of Advice 

Here are some words of advice from Jacob himself for people striving to attain success in any field;

“Words of advice I can give is that you are your biggest advocate or enemy. 

Your mindset will dictate your future. Make your thoughts work in your favor. 

Keeping a positive outlook in the face of adversity is difficult, but the results of that positive mindset will take you where you want to go in life. 

Don’t dwell on the setbacks, plan for the triumphs. I am no better than you or the next person. 

I only compete with myself and make sure that I grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. 

Once you stop worrying and caring about others is when you will be able to do whatever you love, which will lead you to live the life of your dreams!”

Justin Tse On Becoming A Successful Entrepreneur & Content Creator

Published

on

By

justin tse

Justin Tse is a massively successful Tech Content Creator, Entrepreneur & Podcaster. He makes quality tech & lifestyle videos on YouTube and has achieved over 560k+ subscribers. He co-owns a clothing company called Dangerfield with Alexx Davies & has a podcast called FEATURE where he talks about Business, Tech, Lifestyle, Travel, and gets into conversations with other creators! Justin was kind enough to take time out of his schedule to talk to us about his journey! Read on-

1. Who is Justin Tse in real life?

I don’t know.  Almost everything I do is some form of work.  Between planning, filming, and editing videos for my channel, building up the Feature podcast, or working on the clothing company I co-own,  Dangerfield… I stay pretty busy.

justin tse feature podcast

2. What sparked your love for Entrepreneurship and Filmmaking?

When I was a kid I wanted to find a way to make money.  I loved selling stuff, and when I tried to sell one device I learned more about YouTube and its possible revenue streams.  After learning more about tech, I decided to try and make some videos.  Over time, I began improving my filming and diversified the style of videos I upload.  Such as the cinematic travel videos and more.  The skills and equipment could also be seen as a competitive advantage.

3. What are your key takeaways running a successful Tech YouTube channel? (JUSTIN TSE)

My takeaways are that running a YouTube channel is a lot more work than people think.  For me, it’s a media company, and to do this full time, it requires a full commitment and adaptation of lifestyle to maintain and grow a channel.  Especially when you factor in traveling in a normal year, and making content it becomes difficult to manage.  Therefore, staying organized and using a schedule is extremely important.  A YouTube channel is a small business, for the first 9 years I did all the filming, editing, emailing, negotiating, selling, and accounting. 

4. You recently co-founded and launched “Dangerfield”, what problems did you face before launching it? 

Some issues I faced were that the co-owner and I sometimes weren’t in complete agreement over aspects that are important to a brand’s identity.  For example, choosing the style and theme should not be rushed, it took time to decide.  In addition to that, picking the target audience and the content strategy to go along with it is important and we felt we had to be confident in our strategy prior to launch.

5. What was your inspiration behind starting the “Feature” podcast & what do you wish to achieve as a Podcaster & content creator?

The podcast is a project I have always wanted to start.  The free-flowing unscripted conversation is something I am not usually able to do on my YouTube channel so this felt like a good platform to post.  I’m able to naturally discuss subjects I enjoy talking about, which includes F1, business, travel, and more.  Previously, starting new projects has been tough to implement especially because they likely are not profitable to start, but with the quarantine that had occurred for so long, I figured it’d be a good time to start.  Especially since I have thought about it for a long time now.  I had no expectations for it and its primarily for fun.  Meanwhile, my personal channel has expectations and deliverables that must be reached.  As a content creator, I want to create a sustainable, growing business that can last for years to come, and in the future, I’d like to have the resources to expand into other industries I’m passionate about while using the tools and resources I have acquired over my time.

6. Do you think an educational qualification is necessary to succeed in life? 

No, I don’t feel its necessary to always get post-secondary education to succeed.  Although it can be very helpful and lead to great success, it’s not always needed.  I say this because if someone feels they already know what they’d like to do in life, and it’s something they feel they already have the resources continuing in school doesn’t always make sense for that individual.  I only dropped out because I had a steady income and I knew I could make a career out of YouTube for a while.  I’m not an advocate for people sitting around hoping for success, you have to make it happen for yourself.

7. What would you say to someone who is just starting out?

Be prepared to give up everything if you are truly dedicated and have aspirations to grow constantly turning YouTube into a full-time job.  Also start young, it often gives you more flexibility to take risks and learn from mistakes with little consequences.  Use the resources you have available, and don’t feel the need to have the best equipment to succeed.  The process of saving up for your first camera alone will teach you a lot. 

8. Is there something you’d like to say to our readers?

Don’t give up, if you’re willing to put every second you have to work on something, then you probably picked the right thing.
