Ep #39: How this award-winning DJ lives the truth that success is inevitable if you listen to your intuition

They say hindsight is 20/20 and for our guest today his future was deeply rooted in his love of music as a child. After attempting to pursue a more careful path in his career he decided that if others could DJ and make money doing it, so could he. That moment of listening to his intuition led him to a life of joy doing what he loves.

My guest today is one of my amazing clients and friends David Krieger. He is an award-winning DJ and producer. His career began over 15 years ago working as a radio DJ in Philadelphia and MTV VJ in New York. After receiving a Broadcasting degree from Temple
University, Krieger moved to Los Angeles, DJing scores of milestone celebrations and events annually, including holding residencies at The W, The Standard, The London, The Sunset Room in Hollywood, and a major career high – the HP Lounge of Coachella 2019. He is best known for being named “Best DJ in Los Angeles” of 2018, 2019, and 2020 by California Wedding Day Magazine. Krieger serves on the Board of Directors for the Wedding International Professionals Association (WIPA), and has won the WIPA “DJ of Excellence Award” twice. In 2021, Krieger expanded his business to be bicoastal and established a new home-base in Atlanta where he currently lives with his fiancée Mandy, his dog Butch, and cat Mr. Charles.

In today’s episode David talks about how following his intuition has led to creating amazing moments of success on stage and even the big move of his business and family across the country. David explains how his ADHD affects his business and how he approaches leaps in his career. He talks about the impact of instagram on his business and strategies that have contributed to his ongoing success doing what he loves – creating and playing music.

Our biggest takeaway from this interview is that success is still inevitable if you listen to your intuition. If you have ever felt unsure if you are capable of big success and you’re not the type to have a 10 year plan, then take a moment to get inspired.
