Jay-Z has always been an inspiration for me. It started when I was a 13/14-year-old kid and discovered “The Black Album”, legendary. I remember that I was devastated when I found out that this was supposed to be his last album. Thank god, it was not!
Always in love with his music but Jay-Z developed himself as a person, in business, in life. He became a business mogul, an investor, an inspirational figure. Reached the top in all. I grew up as well and with that my interest in branding, business, people, creativity and more. Music is my number one passion but all the above now is as well.
Guess what, Jay-Z is still an inspiration when it comes to these new passions. This all comes together in this inspiring interview with Dean Baquet, executive editor of The New York Times.
There are not many people in the world that have literally seen the bottom and the top, 0–100. Listening to him makes you understand the power of life experience because he never attended any school.
In my humble opinion; something that has way more value than any diploma this world has to offer. Life experience.
Take a moment, listen, take a bow.
