We had the good fortune of connecting with Neva Failin’ and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Neva, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
Consistency has been everything to me. Having a goal and getting a clear idea of where you are in regards to accomplishing your goal and then simple put the work in. I think people sometime put too much pressure of the route you’re going to take to get your results. To me, it’s not about the route, the work that you put in and how often you put in that work will determine which doors open and when. When it came to making music I would challenge myself to make 2 to 3 songs a day for weeks at a time and then I would step back, listen to those songs and the mixes of those songs for a couple weeks, then decide if I think I can do better. You must push yourself to the limit, you must force it out sometimes, in most cases the hardest things to do gives you the best results on the back in because you came out of your natural element of just allowing things to come to you.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I want the world to know it’s Neva Failin’, if anyone tells you that you can’t do something, it’s a lie. You success never start with someone else’s opinion, success is a internal battle you fight to obtain external goals. My fight has been a back and forth one. I want complain about any of it, it’s the test of life, do you want it bad enough, sometime I back slide and lose my drive fir moments at a time, doesn’t mean I’m not being successful, means I’m human and I’m some cases that might be more important that the actual success you have. I truly believe everything that’s I accomplish is fir me to show someone else how to do it in the future. If everything came easily then it wouldn’t be a realistic way fir me to teach my success without noting obstacles. Today professionally, I own several businesses, In my recurring artist career, I’m looking at a few major deals that could change my life forever and I’m simply blessed to be in the position I am. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned along the way is, know the company you keep, allot time to hang with your friends, try and get away and do your work if your friends and family aren’t in similar mind spaces, in a nutshell, limit your distractions.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Honestly that is a tough question simple because I don’t take nearly as must leisure time as I used to. On Monday we would start with the gym like most days, then we’d probably head straight to the studio after we got some food and have a studio day to start the week. Tuesday we would of course hit the gym then link up to network with different influencers in the city to talk business and personal goals. Wednesday, might skip the gym to avoid being burnt out. Go downtown and get breakfast and ride around and site see, that night we would maybe go to a bar like Sidebar in the heart of downtown for some drinks and cap the night there. Thursday, we’re back for a light session at the gyms dm then I’d try to set up an interview or a podcast for us to visit, even if we’re not guest, it would be dope to go for the experience of being around the production side. That Thursday night we would probably go to the Northside and hit a club like Tiger Tiger just to issue a great club environment. Friday to cap the week, we would try our hardest to hit the gym, go to lunch somewhere in the city and go hard that night, may go to Magic City because Atlanta’s so famous for the strip clubs then call it a night.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My family and close friends deserve a lot of praise when it comes to my success today. Starting with family, my mom and sisters mean everything to me, they instilled that since of protecting what’s mine. My sisters were the first people to completely believe in me, even when I got in trouble or steer off the path, their love never wavered, hind sight was definitely 20/20 in that aspect. What I mean by that is, when you’re young you really take for granted the simple things, the simple gestures of love that you don’t get from random people. Looking back on how supportive they were of me through my ups and down, it really allows me to understand their love. My fiancé means the world to me as well, we just recently had a baby boy and just that sense of honor plays a huge part in my driving force everyday. Not to mention she has supported my goes since day one so much where now I have to find ways to make sure I support where she want to be with her personal success.
