Hi, I am Eduardo Johnson Labirua. I was raised in the U.S.A. and have visited many of its other cities and states. I have also lived and worked in London, United Kingdom for 4 years and have visited a number of countries in Europe and Asia. Having been exposed to many different cultures and ethnic backgrounds, I have acquired a natural way of interacting with people regardless of their nationality/race, experience, educational attainment and economic status.
My natural talent is in Music, Writing, Marketing, Sales, and Training & Empowering people.
I have 16 years experience in Music Production, recording, sampling, audio editing, and performing my material live. I have acquired this talent as a kid but in 1998 is when I started having the resources to buy equipment that will help me make my dream come true. I started getting into music production and after two years I had 100 recorded songs (my own beats, own lyrics, and recorded it myself). I use Fruityloops, Acid Pro, Reason, Cubase, Audacity, Steinberg Wavelab. I have a bass guitar, a keyboard, a 24-bit usb audio interface, noise cancelling mics, and monitor speakers. I use two computers to make music.
I can sell ice to an eskimo! I have acquired many sales strategies and have closed a lot of sales in the past 25 years. It's an easy process, you just have to have the drive, the personality and the guts to make that sale! Get to know ur client's wants, interests and needs and based on that information, sell them the right product. That sale may make an everlasting impact on their lives because you don't know what they're going through that very minute. You just don't know, that sale may have saved their lives. Believe me that's happened to me before. My job is to keep you happily buying my products and to make you come back for more. As a musician, I've sold a lot of cd's from the trunk of my car.
I have alot because I had to market my own music 14 years ago. Back then, what I did was go to all the Hiphop Events, gigs, shows and private parties that was happening in my city. I met a lot of great people from Actors, Actresses, Entrepreneurs, Website Developers, Music Producers, Video Producers, Talent and promotional managers, owners of recording studios and many awesome people who are still my friends up to this day. I taught myself to post outdoor ads, pass out flyers and to promote my product, which was music, to people I didn't know. Social Media Marketing is something I got into recently. I taught myself how to post ads targetting the relevant audience. Generate leads and making your product known is something I taught myself.
Training & Empowering people:
I have trained various types of people with different levels of understanding and learning abilities. I have also developed and put together my own modules and training manuals which was used in a program to empower others and make leaders out of them. I developed the course content including pre- and post tests, guides, practice activities, daily group agenda and adult training methodologies. I was responsible for updating myself with current information and fresh new ideas so that the existing training program may continously be improved. I am experienced in facilitating small and large groups. I've taught classes with 50 adults in each class (Fifty students in the morning class & another fifty in the afternoon class). I also evaluate, monitor, and coach each trainee and assess their individual performance. I have motivated trainees to actively participate in learning and sharing to others what they have learned. I encourage trainees to build each other up.
I am looking forward to work. You can count on me!
