You often tend to think ‘Why Did They “Make It” and You Haven’t Yet!’
The interviews I’ve had with the public figures of this month may answer your questions of why you may want to be them, but instead you’re on your couches watching them do what they’re doing – and they’re getting one step closer to their goals at a time!
– Xriss Jor

On Being Managed By Quincy Jones:
Everyone thinks she’s so lucky Quincy picked to represent her in specific!
Xriss Jor told me during our interview that she met Quincy through a person she met at the Voice. This proves to so many people who are anti-popular commercial shows wrong and that such shows do get you good deals. Moreover, that you should consider being nice to people you meet randomly; if you are talented but stuck up and in constant-rejecting-mode, you have little chances of getting anywhere!
One Thing I observed without Xriss having to tell me, is that she is extremely active and receptive! She is what I call a Yes-Girl. I had already briefed Xriss that we will be having an interview a week before going Live, however the same day I asked if she could go live with me, she answered quickly ‘YES’ even though she had a gig an hour after that! That is what I call being really Active – Juggling more than one thing in the same day and taking advantage of your little 24 hours!
Getting Yourself some good Gigs has a lot to do with eagerly asking for ones (Being Active!); Do It and You Will Definitely Get Somewhere!
As for Popularity:
I personally have thousands of followers on my Snapchat. People tend to call them fans. I hate the word fans. Your supporters are the reason you are whatever you are. You need to give them back – not only good work but appreciation and sometimes, engagement. Xriss Jor called a devoted supporter of hers on his birthday wishing him a blessed year. That Is What Makes You More Loved. AND Do it when you mean it, it shows when it’s fake.
Get your feet on the ground, don’t be blinded by popularity once you get a bit known. No matter who you are, you will always be a Big Fish in A Small Pond. Over Arrogance will make you lose your crowd. Xriss insisted over and over again that she is not famous; some bloggers have 30k on instagram and call themselves famous. That is what is making Xriss work on her brand more and more: her Realistic Modesty.
I hope you find this handy in your self-worth self-discovery journey!
