The ambitious, DJing, New York native, Alex Pall, member of the pop duo, The Chainsmokers. After reading Pall’s featured interview on Interviewmagazine.com, I learned that Pall is no stranger to hard work, perseverance, and dedication. In the beginning years of his music career Pall worked in an art gallery during the day and DJ’d during the night. Pall purposefully started to build a career as a DJ in New York City. He consciously witnessed his passion for music grow rapidly around this time. Soon Pall’s love for dance music consumed his life. DJing and producing became so prominent in his life that it became more like a fun hobby to him instead of work. He decided to take his passion for music more seriously. His manager at the time introduced him to his current bandmate, Andrew Taggart. Taggart and Pall produced and wrote their own music together, alongside other talented songwriters for several years before they scored a number one hit with “Closer”. Alex Pall admit that him and Andrew hit it off almost immediately after meeting each other. Their love for music go as far as their childhood. Not to mention their incredible work ethic made it easier to determine if they wanted to create an elite partnership together.
Alex Pall reminds me so much of myself. I am a young multi-talented entrepreneur pursuing a career in the entertainment business. I am a server part time during the day and a filmmaker during the evening. My love for art never made me interested enough to work for a art gallery. However, I am a fan. I love the arts as much as I love good food. What I appreciate most about Alex is that he knew what he wanted, he knew what fueled him, and he went for it without hesitation. That alone gives me so much hope. It reassures me that no matter how hard it gets, I must continue to strive for whatever fulfills my soul.
Co-founder and director of Infinity Group Australia, Graeme Holm, is on a mission to help Australians lighten the burden of debt weighing heavily upon their shoulders just as a personal fitness trainer helps to work off those extra pounds with tough but caring guidance and consistency. He is empowering people to take control of their finances and futures using a unique approach that isn’t seen in today’s world of excess consumer spending as many financial institutions cheer them on into massive amounts of debt.
Ironically, Graeme Holm had almost a decade of experience working for these financial institutions before he and partner Rebecca Walker came up with a business plan in 2012 to encourage people to pay off debt while saving for the future instead of being caught in the trap of living paycheck to paycheck while barely scraping by. Their mission began with the idea that people need to not only be physically healthy but financially fit as well.
Graeme takes the approach of addressing individual aspects of each family his company works with to determine their overall financial fitness then comes up with a plan to determine where they can shed as many pounds of debt as possible. At the same time, each family is assigned a personal banker who oversees the debt management while helping the clients to build wealth and securing a stable financial future for their golden years.
Because of Graeme’s previous experiences with financial institutions, he identified a need for more one-on-one relationships with clients to see them not only through the home buying process but to also help them manage their financial lives. That’s when the idea for Infinity Group Australia was born. Possibly inspired by his new relationship with his physical trainer Rebecca, Graeme wanted to go the extra mile to help Australian families enjoy greater financial benefits from their hard-earned incomes which in turn would help strengthen families as well as communities.
New Infinity Group Australia co-founders and life partners Graeme and Rebecca were able to achieve the goals set forth for their new business venture by coming up with an innovative process to ensure financial fitness for their rapidly growing company and their clients at the same time. The process was a consistent, common-sense approach to money management. Unlike traditional mortgage brokers, once the home loan is sorted the financial relationship between Infinity and its client is just beginning. A personal banker is assigned to each client and a weekly family budget is established. To monitor progress towards paying off the loan as quickly as possible, a monthly “progress report” is provided to each client as well as 6 detailed reviews every month to ensure that goals are being met and followed through by the client.

Graeme Holm and the Infinity Group Australia have not only created a new approach to digging Australians out of debt, but his impact on families and the community is invaluable. He has proven that you can build a profitable business while still doing what is right.
In just a few short years, the Chainsmokers rose from obscurity to achieve international fame and acclaim but just how did this DJ and production duo come together in the first place? Alex Pall recently sat down with Mathias Rosenzweig to discuss the origins of the group and where they plan to go in the future. Alex talked about his upbringing in New York City and how he began DJ-ing in and around the big apple. However, it wasn’t until he met Andrew Taggart that he decided to pursue a professional career in music. Afterwards, they started working together on a daily basis. They both take their music very seriously which is how they knew their partnership would end up being productive and successful.
He also discussed how important it is to release their music in intervals so it has time to reach their intended audience. Pall then discussed the fact that they sing on their own songs which is rare for DJs to do. Nevertheless, they make no apologies for it, saying it’s important for them to sing on their songs, especially when it’s a song about them. He also believes it’s important for music to be grounded and relatable. When discussing their collaboration with Halsey, he mentioned what a cool and individual artist she is. She is the kind of artist with whom they enjoy collaborating. He then discussed the duo’s growing demographic.
Initially, their audience was predominantly college-aged kids but it has since expanded to include people of all ages. Despite their success, he says they don’t take any of their fame for granted and really appreciate all the fans who listen to and love their music. They’re also very passionate about their live shows. In the interview, he discussed how their concert will continue to grow and evolve alongside the music scene. Additionally, he mentioned how they don’t lip sync in their concerts, which is something not all artists can say, and they take great pride in singing live during their shows. And rest assured they’re not going anywhere. They plan on continuing their music careers as long as possible.
