Guego Schmitz (aka G) is a legally blind music producer, marketing guru and writer entrepreneur based out of Tampa, FL
After spending 13 years of his career, working in one of the most elite units in corporate, for the 4th largest auto insurance provider in the nation,
G was forced into early retirement due to a bad stint of surgeries on his eyes; that went horribly wrong.
G, has always been accustomed to battling all his life as from birth he was born legally blind with one of the rarest forms of congenital Glaucoma in the world and now 27 surgeries later he anticipated these last couple of surgeries would just be routine. Unfortunately, the pressure in his eyes were not easily contained as in years past. The unforeseen circumstance put G and his family in a very vulnerable circumstance at the time. G, had just purchased a brand new home for his young beautiful family (fiancé, twin boys and a little girl).
After being advised by doctors that he should consider calling it quits career wise, G went into a rough time period battling emotionally trying to figure out his next move. G, new something had to give as his S family depended on him. This was a very tough time on G not just because he knew that he had to figure something out to survive for his family but also because for the previous 13 years of his life, G had made a name for himself at his then employer Progressive Ins. Fortunately for G, the tools he gained from spending the last 13 yrs of his career working marketing and branding strategies for one of the most elite units within the company would ultimately pay off for him, as he began devising a plan to re-invent himself & build his brand.
“No Discrimination On Genre…”
G’s Total Track Count
“I began my musical journey on February 28th, 2016, which is the day I created my very first fully arranged track. As of today’s date, the above number represents how many tracks I’ve completed to date from all genres.” – G
Approximately 3 yrs ago, G purchased his first set of Beats by Dre Studio headphones. G, had always had a love for music and even pursued it and nearly got signed as an artist in his teenage years but the deal fell through. “Music for me has always been my escape and for many years the one thing that I could always fall back on to cope with much of life’s challenges..”
“Although, I always felt I had a knack for music, I never envisioned that I would have the ability to make music myself. That was until I bought my first set of Beats by Dre. So, I said to myself what the hell if for anything this could be a fun outlet to get my mind off of shit and a form of an outlet for all this bent up frustration I harbor inside. So, I made my first couple of tracks and to my surprise they weren’t half bad. To my surprise not only were they not half bad but they felt awfully seamless in creating meaning it came quite naturally to me with little to no effort. So, after about 10 tracks completed in 2 weeks time I said to myself well if I can do Hip-Hop let’s see how I fair at a Rock track. Then after Rock came, Dubstep, House, Techno, Country, R&B, Reggaeton and the list goes on. I quickly realized that this was a gift as they all came so natural to me and it was then that I decided to make this new passion and gift; my dream.”
“I started building my brand and not too long after I began networking my craft on social media, God started placing people in my life, that would ultimately have a hand in how far I’ve come in such a short time. I can honestly say, I have been quite blessed as God has placed some of the most amazing people around me in my journey till this point, but we aren’t done yet!” – G
The site (EchoTheGuego), the brand (Guego Schmitz), The Empire (GSNEM) and over 400 tracks from all genres later G is set to take over the world! As G would say, “Stay tuned We Coming!”
