Kori Black.

What do you do & what inspires you to do it:

I’m an R&B artist. What inspires me to do music is the fact that it was introduced to me by my father and his love for music was passed down to me. He was killed when I was 15 years old and we have the same name, so I really love the idea of carrying the name on through music.

How do you define success:

Being your own boss and making a comfortable living doing what you love.

What would you say to motivate a younger you to be successful in life:

Don’t be afraid to step out on faith and do something that may not be the norm. Don’t let anything or any person distract or knock you off of your path to success.

Are you doing now what you’ve always wanted to do or did you have other aspirations previously:

I’ve always wanted to do music, but I’m interested in trying out any business ventures that I can be successful at.

What’s the best business or personal advice you’ve ever received:

Don’t let the opinions of others bother you.
