In today’s episode, we have DC Glenn from the multi-platinum hip hop group “Tag Team.” Their music has been featured on everything from having a #2 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts (for seven weeks straight) with "Whoomp! (There It Is)", Their music featured in such films as Elf, Shark Tale, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, and D2: The Mighty Ducks.

After the bright lights, big crowds, the record deals went away. After seeing his song “Whoomp” in the film “Elf” with Will Farrel, without his knowledge, and having to fight to get his share of the sync licensing owed to him, DC Glenn reinvented himself, went on to become a paralegal, and a commodities broker, with the mindset that he decided to run his life like a corporation.

Some of the things that DC talks about with us include:

  • What Are You Going To Be? A Predator or a Prey?
  • You Learn How To Learn
  • Make Yourself invaluable
  • Being good isn’t enough. Become Masterful.
  • Learn how to transition from working in the music industry to working in the entertainment industry.
  • How he developed a plan, he calls “Learn How To Learn” tactics
  • Play offense and refuse to lose
  • How the Pandemic was the greatest thing that ever happened to him
  • There’s Always More Reasons to Move Forwards Than There Are To Move Backwards
