MICK  🎧 Your Favorite Brand's Favorite DJ 👶🏽 Dad of @mylesXB 🎤 Speaker 💸 Angel Investor 🛫 Frequent Flier 👟 Sneakerhead 🌉 Brooklynite Visit: MICK.co

Found this pic from a few years ago. Pre-Myles. A few less wrinkles. Couple pounds lighter. No dad-stache. A really weird hat. Look on my face says “can we please break for lunch?” I still remember this day like it was yesterday. Life was easier then, but far less fun. And definitely not as fulfilling. Thinking about losing the stache and going back to the stubble tho.💈

ACCEPTING SPEAKING OFFERS FOR FALL/WINTER: mick@mick.co
.
Start ups come in many different sizes and shapes. Some people create apps. Some people create websites. Some people create spaceships. Mick Batyske created a global deejay career.
.
By focusing on the business of his career as much as the art, Mick has turned a college hobby into a successful study in entrepreneurship, with relationships throughout the entertainment, tech, & celebrity worlds.
.
In this talk, you will learn about the value of your personal brand, and when it’s important to rebrand. You will improve your creativity by thinking like a deejay.

Had an big event cancel today because of the storms. But then the rain let up and I got some unexpected @mylesxb time. The obstacle is the way.
.
Our morning coffee dates have gone from “don’t pee while I’m ordering espresso” to “don’t touch anything or you’re going night night” and have now evolved into interesting chats about his day, friends, Hulk and random subway delays. 💚

Every time I post a book on my Stories, I get tons of people asking me questions about it. I’ve definitely helped sell more than a few books for more than a few authors.
.
As I’m currently working on a book myself - can’t wait to share more - I want to get in the habit of sharing what I’m currently reading (besides comic books lol).

THE THIRD DOOR by @alexbanayan
Very interesting memoir on not just the habits of successful people, but on how to build meaningful relationships with anyone. His storytelling is fascinating. Sidenote: I originally thought this was a book about anal. 🤷🏽‍♀️
.
SLUGFEST by Reed Tucker
Coke vs Pepsi. GM vs Ford. Nike vs Adidas. We know those stories. Finally, someone breaks down the billion dollar rivalry between @marvel and @dccomics. I saw Marc Andreessen tweeting about this and bought it instantly.
.
FIVE STARS by @carminegallospeaker.
One of my biggest flaws is the ability to concisely and effectively explain myself. Reading this to try and get better.

CREATIVE QUEST by @questlove
No real explanation needed. One of the most creative people of our era and a big role model of mine. Soak it in!

#TBT to last week’s huge @twitter bash in SF. This is my fave pic from the event. There are very few people in business who possess intelligence, empathy, kindness, humor, love from their peers, and the ability to scratch in Drake’s “Nice For What.” @leslieberland is one of those people. #oneteam

Felt so good to spend all of Sunday with @mylesxb after being gone the majority of the last three weeks.
.
Highlights included teaching him how to use a remote control car (crazy since that shit is real life these days) and him yelling at me cause I tried to do pull-ups at the playground. 🤷🏽‍♀️

I feel like Christian Laettner on the Dream Team, but my squad is incredible.
.
While our “president” does everything he can to divide us, my friends are globally recognized creatives, prestigious award winners, visual geniuses, start up investors + advisors, and most importantly: the reason my son will grow up in an inspiring environment.
.
Thank you @joahspearman and @localeur for bringing us all together in Austin this weekend.

I used to deejay in my dorm room. For like 3 people. Who didn’t even care. Lol. So I mean... life is good.
.
Thank you @overwatchleague — last weekend at @barclayscenter was truly and insanely mind blowing.

Special thx: @blizzard / @teamepiphany / @danieljcherry / @laneborgida / @activision
.
PS: I’m available to come to an arena near you. Lol.

Just came off a crazy run of 7 shows in 6 days... which most of you have seen if you follow along. What a thrill to close it out as one of the headliners for the #MLSAllStar Concert last night in Atlanta.
.
Thank you to @MLS, @Target, @bclentertainment and the thousands of ATLiens who came out.
.
I personally think they should send me and the esteemed @fonzbentley on a tour. Our set was just tooooooo fun.
.
Scroll thru to see the amazing crowd, an insane stage, and an epic 5000 person “Swag Surf.” I love what I do!

Three years ago today, after a really spicy Mexican dinner, this little guy @mylesxb (who finally joined IG) popped out of a vaginal canal. And we couldn’t have been happier.
.
I have learned so much about life from this small human. I’ve learned how to sacrifice even more. I’ve learned how to laugh even harder. I’ve learned how to fight thru a very scary depression.
.
I’ve learned how to eat fish. I’ve learned to forgive things my Dad messed up because I have already made my own fatherly mistakes. I learned that my kid can dribble better as a toddler than I can as an adult.
.
I’ve even learned that my son does more photoshoots in a month than I do. And looks cooler in sneakers than I do.
.
But mostly, I’ve learned, like every dad learns... I will run thru walls and move mountains to give my child the life he deserves.
.
When people comment to me about my work ethic or how I do it (fyi: I don’t sleep and it looks way easier on the gram than it is in real life), I just smile and show them a pic of Myles. Then usually drink some wine. Lol.
.
Myles: I love you. The first three years have been epic but the best is surely yet to come. You have a lot of Transformers to unwrap today. Let’s get to it.

Last year, my good friends @arisgoldberg and @paging_dr_rome called to tell me about their amazing lifestyle concept focusing on men’s grooming and wellness.
.
Looking to add something in the men’s space to my portfolio, I instantly invested into the idea that became @bsgdispatch.
.
Watching it grow over the last year has been phenomenal, but this week has been insane.
.
Big thank you to @kingjames (some of my first big deejay gigs in life were due to this guy), @mavcarter, @pr_rwtw, @uninterrupted, and @hbosports for choosing to film “The Shop” at our beautiful West Hollywood venue.
.
This show looks quite epic. I can’t wait to see the entire project. 🎥 🏀💈

True story. In high school, I had my wisdom teeth taken out and was super high on whatever bullshit the dentist prescribed. First and last time I was high on anything, FYI.
.
So I sent my mom to every record store in Ohio to find “Doggystyle” as it came out that same day.
.
Imagine this clueless, kind, polite, middle age white lady walking into your neighborhood rap record store asking for some doggy style. Yeah, exactly.
.
But somehow she managed to get it. (The album. Lol.)
.
And I learned every song and word perfectly. Because of prescribed dental narcotics and three days off from school. It’s still one of my faves all these years later.
.
Thank you @adidas and @nickyads for inviting me to the amazing @snoopdogg #ProsperSummit18 last week in LA. An epic experience in many ways.
