1.It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?

A: I appreciate you and it’s an honor to be here able to show people what I’m about. My story is simple. I come from the family of 10 children, my mother worked hard to give us the best life she could. Watching my mom struggle. Early pushed me to not want a mediocre job. I joined dream home remodeling and worked my way up to managing at HomeFix Coporate Manager had my own corporate office by age 18. And then moved onto Amar marketing partnered with Long-fence and Home. I grew stressed and developed a consistent habit for drinking alcohol while under the pressures of the sales industry. I felt as though my talents were being wasted. So I started taking my music more seriously. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.

2.I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?

A:  My disappointment is only that my little brother didn’t live to see me accomplish what I do today. Terrance would have been 32 now. I had him working with me in sales long before I started taking my music seriously. And he was right there rapping with me at the start. His death pushed me to take my life more seriously. My mother’s struggles showed me perseverance, and I choose to be what it is I needed growing up. I have done my best to be an example for relationship building. I have had a few partners, multiple Crews, and each time. I learn that I’m constantly evolving, and I can’t expect people to do the same with me. So I’m constantly changing my situations now, and making sure that I’m around people who are growing with me. I don’t like being the smartest person in the room. That’s dangerous. I like to learn from people more than me. And I pray more people this way. I choose to live with purpose, and my reflects purpose, and it gives my life a meaning. I hope it does the same for those who listen.

3.Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?

A: I specialize in practicality and efficiency. A lot of artists are chasing fame. A lot of musicians expect someone to pay them attention just because they are Musician. I’m about creating and maintaining the value. Being in the sales industry taught me that when you make yourself valuable people come to you. and I bring that mentality into Music making creating and marketing. I don’t trust Audio Engineer, I hope Artist and coach them to craft projects that have longevity. Not an easy quick McDonald’s burger. I help to musically facilitate Full on filet mignons. I teach during the process so that even if an artist does not stick with me as their engineer, they know the terms, and how to go about explaining and expressing what they want artistically from the next one. I also have a marketing agency on part with that allows me to run campaigns with SEO services which has helped me gain the notoriety that I have. I do believe it’s one of the reasons your magazine company found me. And I’m grateful. I don’t wanna stop Shop, but I’m also a collective and because of the relationships are built I can put artist on all kinds of situations. I’ve also worked with businesses  like the nonprofit in Las Vegas called the modern day. Tradesmen ran by a good friend of mine name Andy. Andie is the owner of the biggest plumbing company on the West Coast. And he believed in my company and I cracked it Audio for his nonprofit when I moved to Las Vegas in 2020 my superpower are the connections made, and my ability to connect others to situations that benefit them.

4.What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?

A:  things can be quite simple, but we overcomplicate them. It’s not about fighting success. We create purpose, we create success. We create situations. We are made in the image of the creator. Religious or not there’s a system and rules of the universe and if we follow them while evolving with them bring peace and helps us to be the creators that we were meant to be. I know this because when I stopped going against the grain of what life is about, I started to see life for what it really is. Bill relationship relationships with people. Start conversations. build skills that actually help people. There’s an amazing quote that I really enjoy. They say the meaning of life is for us to plant trees, knowing we will probably never sit in the shades. We have so many representations of this all around us. Life is simple. We complicate it. That complication distracts us and wastes a lot of time. Don’t be a time waster. Be a creator. Create your own destiny. And learn from people who have already.

5.Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?

A: you ask really good questions. Success is what we make it. Success is about setting goals and accomplishing them. Not looking at what other people are doing and wishing and wanting what they have. Coveting is literally a sin for reason. Jealousy is love and hate at the same time and it’s a confusing feeling. I don’t chase success I created. There’s a huge difference. We’ll talk to Chase success because if you chase it means you’re just continuously going for it. If you set goals that are attainable and you achieve them, you can move onto another goal. It’s more practical. And practicality is how I achieve. Practicality is why the world will remember the name T. Witz. Nothing is impossible when you’re practical.

6.What’s next for you?

A: I plan on traveling more and expanding when it comes to shows. I’m connected with a great man named Lamont who works for a reputable company that has put me in some great positions as far as performing and meeting great people. I want to showcase my talents more and build up my fan base through more performances and interactions with audiences. I also plan on getting back to my podcast on YouTube YouTube called “my wits end“ check it out I give all kinds Of insight on the journey and a little bit of advice thrown in as well. I like to believe that people people need my music. They need to know that consciousness doesn’t have to be corny. They need to know that the “cool“ keeps people docile. And sometimes we have to our understanding of what cool is. Knowledge is cool. Relationship building is cool. Setting goals that you can actually attain is cool. Respecting people that love you is cool. Respecting people that don’t love you but whom show you respect is cool. I choose to spread more with music, videos, performances, and social interactions on YouTube.

7.Finally, how can people connect with you if they want to learn more?

A: all my handles on social media are @tdotwitz and my official website tdotwitzmusic.com, if people would like to download and support the music. I give updates on new music, performances, etc. And please subscribe to my YouTube channel under the same handle and hit the notification though so that you can know when I drop new videos, show, snippets and more.
