We had the good fortune of connecting with Mojo. @JustMojoPeriod and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Mojo., what do you attribute your success to?
The most important is God & my faith. It’s honestly what drives me when I’m feeling great and even when I’m not feeling it at all. Being a business owner isn’t all peaches & cream! Sometimes you have to self motivate yourself especially on days when the support is dry and the money is low. You always have to remember where your help comes from. Also, surround yourself with likeminded people. My team plays a big part as well because I don’t do any of it alone. They always push me to be better, go bigger and I’m thankful for that!
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.
I’ve been in the Music Industry for over 10 years, I started off singing in church (my mom is very religious lol) and my dad is a rapper so that’s what molded me into the artist I am today. I was in a group when I was in college at NC A&T SU and we were together 7years. It definitely taught me a lot. How to be patient and trust YOUR process was the lessons that stuck out the most in that experience. When I broke out on my own it was an easy transition because I was already preparing myself mentally and I knew that being a mogul was what I wanted to do with my life. I don’t want to limit myself and say I’m just an artist because I’m capable of more. Cosmetics is a passion of mine so I started my own vegan cosmetic line @MoLipCosmetics and I’ve always loved marketing so I have a boutique agency @MoMarketingAndBranding where I help small businesses like mine appeal to a bigger audience. My goal is to build generational wealth in my family and be able to help others do the same. The road isn’t easy but it’s definitely worth it! Check out my new single “Checkin’ For Me” out now on all platforms and my next single “Winners” will be dropping soon along with a crazy visual so make sure you guys keep updated with when it drops at JustMojoPeriod.com & follow me on all platforms @JustMojoPeriod! ✨
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would definitely take them to my favorite SLUTTY VEGAN! I’m all about supporting black owned business and Pinky Cole is one of my CEO inspirations chile! We would have to hit up Breakfast At Barney’s and something cultural like the Trap Museum! I would suggest a picnic in Peidmont Park and live music is always a vibe!
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?
My Family & Friends who believe in me✨
& Last but not least God because without him I am nothing! ✨
