Neddy Smith is a professional musician and CEO at NedGJean International. He composes and writes his music, not only in a traditional style, but also by incorporating his vast international experiences. This is apparent in each of his releases.


My name is Neddy Smith, composer, producer, and bassist. You know, I have the sense of being in a place where there was so much information from so many different people. And I was wondering, what is that they were talking about? Because everyone was talking like, in a crowd. So, I asked one person, "Listen, what is it that you wanna talk about, "and how you wanna talk about it to affect change?" The other reason I ask you was to see if everyone is on board with what you're talking about. Become a change agent. You need to get the knowledge. So, by gathering the information, knowing the topic, knowing the subject you wanna talk about, and making it believable so others can come to you will give you a better focus and have knowledge of what you're talking about so others can follow you. Because you cannot ask people or push yourself on to others unless you have the knowledge that they are craving for. So, let's think about, let's think about the knowledge of the purpose that you wanna fulfill in your life. My life, your life, it's all about having the faith to move forward. But, you need to get that knowledge. You could go to school, you could go to the library, you could read the newspaper. Wherever you get the knowledge, how is it going to feed and help others? Well, you need a purpose, and that purpose must be fulfilled based on your understanding, which is comprehending all that knowledge to share with others.
