We had the good fortune of connecting with DJ BAD GYRL and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi DJ, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?

Easy, I don’t like being told what to do and to avoid being fired from a job I had to start my own business. I have been my own boss for the last 20 years and I like it that way. I don’t see the point in giving my time to a company that could never pay me what I am worth. In my line of work there’s no cap on what you can earn. I pay the cost to be the boss.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?

I’ve been in radio almost nine years and I started my station 22.3 Takeover Vegas Radio four years ago. It is growing every day and I love seeing the additional team members we have now. We also started our sister station 22.3 TakeOver Miami Radio last year. Every day is a new and unique experience. You never know who is going to reach out for advertising, interviews, media, whatever it is. Every day is a different day. Building this business was not easy. That is for sure, but it was certainly worth every headache I have endured over the last four years.

I am so proud of the company I have built and what it stands for. I love the team we have now. Everyone fits and, believe it or not, everyone gets along with each other. It’s definitely a family atmosphere and we all have so much admiration for each other. Our radio family is so close. It’s a beautiful thing.

I am very proud of many things we have accomplished as a team.
*We are Guinness World Record Holders as of this year
*The Mayor of Las Vegas gave us a proclamation: May 23rd is 22.3 Takeover Vegas Radio Day & I have my own day as well, February 14th. Those two days mean so much I can’t even tell you.
*We were nominated in two categories for the Best of Las Vegas this year. No other internet radio stations were nominated, so THAT was a huge surprise. I love knowing we are in a league of our own.
*We are live in 195 counties which I believe is the whole world! I mean we wanted to takeover the world and we did that!

I want the world to know we are not going anywhere. We are just getting started. We have so much more to accomplish together and individually. I am just so thankful for all of our fans and supporters. I plan to open four more radio stations across the country. I am on a mission!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
