Today we’d like to introduce you to Jade Woods.
Jade, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
It wasn’t until after I graduated from CSUN that I really started to take my creative career seriously. Right away, I started working as a background actor on TV shows, movie sets, and music videos. From there, I transitioned into the modeling industry. While I did enjoy this, I craved something more. Something that I had more control of. After a lot of pondering, I decided to start my YouTube channel which led to me starting my podcast titled “All About the Vibes Podcast”.
Once I became more comfortable with my voice and creative abilities, I decided to finally begin my music career and started recording tracks at The Dojo LA recording studio. A lot of people never knew this, but singing was something I have been passionate about since I was a child. I grew up around a mother who was always either in the studio or performing her music at venues like The House of Blues so naturally, I was more than inspired.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Let me tell you this has been a wild journey! Each creative path I take has been trial and error. Between figuring out which equipment to use, knowing the proper file formats to get the best quality, and everything in between. I’ll never forget the night when I was recording the first episode of my podcast. I thought everything was solid. When I went back to listen to it, nothing played. It turns out my software was not yet set up with my microphone so it picked up nothing and I had to start all over.
There was another time I was editing a vlog for my YouTube channel and my computer crashed which caused me to lose half of an almost finished project. I was devastated. Even just the other day, I wrote an amazing song that I am basically ready to record and guess what? I can’t find the paper I wrote it on ANYWHERE! So with that being said, I have learned that struggles will happen, but as long as I don’t give up and push through, I will be A-Okay.
All About the Vibes Podcast – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
All About the Vibes Podcast started as something for me to get my thoughts out into the public alongside my YouTube channel. As time went on, I started to receive great feedback on both platforms which has motivated me in ways I never imagined. I love keeping people on their toes and sharing my experiences with others so when people think of my brand, I want them to think, “wow what will she do/discuss/take on next?”
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
To me, success means achieving the goals, wants, or dreams you set out for yourself on a weekly, daily, monthly, or even yearly basis. Simply put, find out what makes you happy and do exactly that.
