Pivoting From a Singing Artist to Performance Coach with Keanna Henson “KJ Rose”

A person who sees obstacles as set-backs or a person who sees it as a necessary route to get to where God set you to be, which one are you? How do you treat your obstacles, set-backs, delays? How do you see beyond a devastating incident? How do you succeed in your life? 

This episode’s podcast features Keanna Henson “KJ Rose”. KJ Rose is a Grammy Award Winning Artist Development and Performance Expert who is affectionately known as the “Talent Whisperer.” She has spent over 15 years in the music industry performing with P. Diddy, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and several other stars while navigating corporate America as a professional at Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, J Records (for Clive Davis),  and Sundance TV. The culmination of these experiences shaped KJ’s fervor for pushing performers, actors, singers, executives and artists of all disciplines beyond their perceived capacity. She is a performance coach to LIL Nas X.  She is also a newly published author of “ The Rose Effect: Eight Steps To Delivering The Performance of Your Life” 

She shares a lot of her experiences that are not only relatable, but are also essential for any audience to understand how she was able to turn everything into a huge rolling ball of success. 

With Rose as her middle name and the name she prefers to be called, she intends to spread wisdom to her clients and for any person who aspires to be successful or just simply to look at life in a more positive way. Her high energy radiates from everything that she does and so expect this podcast to inspire you and get you to your feet to start if you haven’t yet started, and keep you on your feet when you feel like you need to reassess yourself. 

Having pivoted from solo artist to performance coach,  KJ Rose doesn’t consider herself a quitter. Neither did she downgrade herself by this pivot but her versatility to fuse both career experiences to give her best is truly inspiring.

How I Started My Triathlon Journey and Lessons Along the Way

How I Started My Triathlon Journey and Lessons Along the Way

“I love running but I have a love-hate relationship with it because when I pick up speed, I get injured from either doing too much running, or doing too much speed and hill work.”

How much does it take to reach the finish line?  When you love something so much but your body wants to quit, do you give up on it? 

Being a hardcore lover of running, I will share how I started running from  3 miles to 5 miles until I first finished my first full marathon. As much as I wanted to keep on going, I started having injuries, so I had to undergo physical therapy, and had to preserve in order to reach my goals. 

However, these physical struggles weren’t enough to stop me. My transition to triathlons started with a simple text from my Godson.  I purchased a bike, joined a cycling club, and learned to love cycling. Next, I pursued swimming despite my great fear of drowning.  Swimming lessons were certainly not easy.  I worked hard  with such self-determination. 

In order to make it to my triathlon finish line, I had many struggles. It took a lot for me to reach every one of them and this episode is meant to inspire you to do whatever it takes to reach your finish line.  

Never give up on anything that your heart beats for. If you have to be stubborn at something, you should be stubborn at fulfilling your goals. This episode is the perfect call you need to hear to keep you going. 

Highlights from this Episode:

  • What prompted me to start running
  • Going from my 1-mile run to my first marathon run
  • The injuries I sustained from running 
  • Physical therapy 
  • Moving to Chicago 
  • My journey to triathlon 
  • How I overcame my fear of swimming 
  • My experiences with coaches and staff during swimming during triathlons 
  • My mantras
  • Black Triathlon Association
  • How I started cycling 
  • My DNF and learning it is not a death sentence
  • My first Ironman
