Well, no big introduction is needed for the musician, entrepreneur, sneaker connoisseur, fashion mogul, and philanthropist, Pharrell Williams. Diggy Simmons (son of Rev Run from Run DMC) takes a nice 30 min long Q and A with his mentor at the Kidult conference that Pharrell runs. This is definitely a great and informative interview. I love the honesty that comes from Pharrell and the knowledge dropped.
I think it's even greater for me because I'm a pretty recent graduate from college (I graduated in Jan 2009). And instead of looking for a typical 9-5, I've opted to go left and start a blog which I monetize (this is one of 6), and do something different. I chose Poli Sci is my main thing because I've always been interested in writing and learning about how the system works...but at the same time my heart's been in Business especially in the area of E-Marketing..so that's what I'm doing now. I figure I'm young, and so I do have the opportunity to experiment for the next couple yrs before I have to really, really get it together. I've been at it for about 7 months now, and I'm starting to reap the benefits from God, my hard work, and being a lil different.
This interview touches a lot of things such as music, art, science, and life goals.
I've always had a lot of respect for Pharrell and his crew because they made being different a cool thing. And it should be...everything sounding/being the same makes it boring. We should accept ppl for their differences as much as the similarities. So with that said..Check out the interview with Pharrell below. And a big up to Diggy for the interview...You can check Diggy's blog at Dig's Life of the Jetsetter
