J Bert, appreciate you joining us today. What do you think it takes to be successful?

I believe success is not about having a lot of money or driving the nicest car or owning the biggest home. Success is what’s within you. Whenever you wake in the morning, you probably don’t say much. That’s the thing because some people don’t get to wake up as you do. Being thankful, respectful, having wisdom, and always wanting to help others is what makes you successful. Growing up, it took a lot of time to learn that. Being full of yourself and thankful and still fighting for a better tomorrow not only for yourself but for the people around you makes you successful. As an artist, my goal is to spread the love around the world. I want to help people who weren’t able to have what I have or have the materials that I have today. This is what it takes to be successful.

Awesome – so before we get into the rest of our questions, can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers.

The music industry is flooded with young, talented artists who are hindered from making their music heard because of several reasons such as the lack of support, funds, and guidance, among others.

Speaking about the motivation behind the Bert Music label, J Bert had this to say, “Too many talented artists out there never get the recognition they deserve, and never even get a chance to succeed. Being a part of the entertainment industry has really changed my perspective, seeing people playing my music around the world has made me smile and I want to give others the chance to enjoy that privilege.”

Bert Music is the first-of-its-kind music record label in Dallas, Texas. It offers artists services such as A&R support and funding, marketing and promotions, specialist support, music distribution, licensing deals, solid branding, and much more.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
