024: Mama Jan Smith – Boundaries

This week we sat down with Mama Jan Smith, the world’s premier vocal producer and instructor. With over 30 years’ experience in the music industry, she is a Grammy-nominated producer and Georgia Music Hall of Fame Inductee. We were so excited to hear her story of what led her to leadership and her creative mindset in the entertainment world! As Mama Jan Smith said, “leadership kind of happened to me in the process of discovering what I’m really here to do.”

In this interview, she discusses how she went from being an Artist herself to what led her to lead people in the music industry and help them find their voice. Just to name drop a few of her clients…Justin Bieber, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Colbie Caillat. WOW! Working in an industry that isn’t always best known for its honesty and integrity, Mama Jan Smith walks us through how she navigates boundaries and how to create rules.

We decided to ask a deep question, “what is one of your greatest failures or disappointments? How did that affect your leadership today?” Listen to our Podcast to hear what Mama Jan Smith had to say, she got honest and real – you DO NOT want to miss it!
