We had the good fortune of connecting with BiZzY BalBoa and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi BiZzY, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
Being a great communicator has always been where my power has thrived so I have a habit of organizing my thoughts in various forms to help me with transparence whether it be verbally, making notes, utilizing calendars, setting timers etc. It’s imperative for me to have clarity on multiple levels no matter what it is I need to have it written down so that I can understand how I want to express myself and/or execute.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
As a songwriter and recording artist I have written music since I learned to write. My mom would find me in the closet with my headphones on pretending to perform and she always supported my dream by purchasing albums, stereos and other musical equipment for me throughout my childhood. My podcast started as a way for me to express myself outside of music. I was tired of being loud and opinionated on social media so I decided to use my podcast as a way to rant and it was great but after 2 years I decided to switch the format so now I am hosting and interviewing independent artist talent all over the world. ( I still rant on social media lol ) My online clothing shop has been in business since 2016 and has undergone several rebrandings but I am happy to say that this year I will officially be “Big Luvv LLC” and I am extremely proud to own a brand that promotes love, positivity, and peace, through our messages on our products. It has been as easy as I need it to be because I don’t allow anyone to dictate what I can and can’t handle I keep things on a level where it works for me and makes sense overall. The most challenging part about it is doing it all yourself but you need the right kind of people around you when you’re branching into your profession not just anyone so take your time to network. I have been doing things solo for many years but I have been blessed with opportunities to work with like minded individuals to the point where I am slowly but surely growing into a team instead of a one woman show. Some lessons I’ve learned along the way are mostly just staying focused on what I’m trying to achieve and never comparing myself to others. I want the world to know that I am just a human with skill sets applying them the best way in the midst of judgement, pain, and passion.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
When I’m in Atlanta I’m usually at a recording studio so that’s exactly where I would take them and where they would be expecting to end up at anyways. Now that I’m pescatarian I would have to skip out on the wing spots but would take them if they were interested of course. There’s still many places I haven’t been in Atlanta like Slutty Vegan, Juicy Krab, and I heard MF Sushi Atlanta is the best so we would have to hit all of those spots for sure. Most of everyone I know in Atlanta is exciting so there would be multiple stops! First visit would be to kick it with my younger brother SkoolBoi Paso who is a videographer at Tyler Studios, then we would hang with Skitz Pittz and the Real Rap Club. I have many stops to make anytime fam comes to the A. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate this to my parents who have had to deal with me for over 30 years. I also would like to thank everyone for the immense support I’ve received from the East to the West coast. Love to the ancestors!
