Hollywood. It’s the place where one dreams of being famous, and loved by millions. It takes a special kind of person to make that dream become a reality, and I had the great pleasure of interviewing her. Meet Scheana Marie. Gorgeous beyond measure, and insanely talented, Scheana Marie will inspire you with her music and presence. Scheana talked to me about music, her life, and success.
Justin Marroquin: How did you get into music?
Scheana Marie: I have always been a huge fan of music since I was a little girl. When I started dating Shay, he introduced me to a new love for music and my soon to be manager Russell Stuart, who is the CEO of Superbox Music. Russ had a song ready for female vocals to be put on it, and the rest is history!
JM: How do you overcome criticism and negativity?
SM: I am a very strong person and I don’t let little things get to me. If someone wants to criticize me, I feel bad for them that they have nothing better to do with their time than be negative towards me. I just laugh it off. Best medicine!
JM: Do you set goals for yourself? If so, how do you go about doing it?
SM: I do. I try and keep them realistic, but I also set long term goals for things I want to accomplish in life. The best way to go about it is to set your mind to it, and just make it happen—which is why I like to keep my goals realistic, then you’re never disappointed!
“The best way to go about it is to set your mind to it, and just make it happen.”
JM: Who has been the biggest influence in your life?
SM: My mom!! She has always been my biggest fan and supporter. I would be lost without her. She’s the strongest woman I know and I look up to her, and admire her so much! I can only wish to be half the woman she is one day! Everyone says their mom is the best, but that’s not possible when mine is!
JM: What does success mean to you?
SM: Success to me, means being happy. I was always told to find a job I love and I’ll never work a day in my life.
JM: Share one piece of advice that has helped you in your life?
SM: My mom always told me to live, laugh, and love. And know that everything happens for a reason, even when it’s difficult to understand.
