We had the good fortune of connecting with Teale Greene and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Teale, what role has risk played in your life or career?
When I think about a plan or strategy as it pertains to my career, or life in general, I weigh out the pros and cons. If the “what ifs” leave me feeling more anxious than inspired, I may redirect my energy or come up with another approach/solution. It’s good to think in any decision there are risks, but could you live without yourself if you didn’t try?” Each business role I’m in had come from me, with very little knowledge of what I was doing, but I had a natural knack for the position. I took the risks and they have worked out in my favor.

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 dj, I love to catch a vibe and love, even more so, to see others vibing with me. I’m super proud to have dj’d numerous Atlanta venues, listening events, and even concerts. Through this channel I’ve met so many dope people and unlocked other skills I didn’t know I had. It wasn’t easy, but consistency is key. The main thing I’d like people to take away from my story is that doubt is powerful, and I doubted myself often, but I didn’t stop. I still struggle, but won’t stop. The story isn’t over!

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?
In Atlanta, my personal favorite gems to visit are Boogalou Restaurant & Lounge, Eclipse Di Luna, Blue Buckhead (if you’re looking to turn up a bit), Taverna Buckhead, and Kabob Land.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
First of all, shoutout to my family and the Big God who created them. They have been instrumental in pushing me to chase after what I wanted! Also, my first mentor Janee Bolden, who is the managing editor at Bossip.com. She taught me so much I needed to understand early on about the industry.
