Manager Spotlight offers a small insight into the heads of incredible managers. This week in the spotlight is Taisha Johnson!
How long have you worked in Management?
Officially since 2017.
Who do you manage now?
Miraa May (check her out!)
Where did you find your first client and what inspired you to take them on
Miraa and I went to a performing arts school together, we’ve bounced off each others creative energies from a young age.
I think in 2015/2016 I began to understand there were lanes for me to take in the industry and I was offered the opportunity to do so with Miraa.
What’s a good/bad day at work look like for you?
A good day for me is a day without any complaints; things are running smoothly.
I try not to make any day a ‘bad day’ as each day comes with it’s own challenges, it’s just about how you choose to tackle them.
What has been the highlight of your management career to date?
I don’t think I could narrow down one highlight. Throughout my career thus far, I am continuously proud of the efforts and achievements I’m making;
depending on your work ethic, the job can be extremely demanding, so I take time to constantly remind myself I’m doing good things.
What do you think are the big challenges for a manager in 2020?
Well considering we’re currently in a pandemic, the biggest challenge is to keep safe! After that I’d say, mental health and finance.
What music are you currently listening to?
Currently I’ve been banging ‘Bino Rideaux – Outside’ project.
It’s got that LA feel to it, summer time settings.
