What Motivates You? 1. What motivates you? For awhile my motivation was just to make it and be able to eat off of music, but to be motivated off being successful is a bad thing, because it's self-destructing every minute you spend that you are not reaching this idea of success. 2. Do you have role models/people you look up to? I look up to Jay-z as far as a business mind and a be all you can be type persepective.
