I’m so happy to present this episode to you.
I originally interviewed Erika Ender in October of 2017.
I wanted to re-release this episode to celebrate her recent Grammy nomination for “best song of the year” for Despacito, which she wrote with Luis Fonsi.
The song has 7billion+ views on YouTube.
I asked how she did it.
I wanted to learn about the process of rising to the peak of the music industry.
There are so many great takeaways from our conversation. But one of my favorites is “have an abundance to mentality.”
“People are always asking me, ‘Do you feel pressure? What are you going to do next?’ And I say, “You know what, this is such a gift. I’m just focussing on whatever is good and being grateful and doing the best that I can in everything that I do.’ I’m not putting any pressure on myself because I think doing that is seeing life from the ego eyes. I’m not thinking I’m going to top this. I’m just going to do quality work,” she said. “I’m trying to evolve.”
This interview will teach you about collaboration, discovering inspriation and your own inner-talent, forgetting about the outcoming, believing in your gift and so much more.
I hope you enjoy.
I give you Erika Ender… singer, songwriter, philanthropist, Latin Grammy Winner, Hall of Fame Inductee and now Grammy nominee for “best song of the year.”
