Now to the interview!
What do you love about working for yourself?
I love the flexibility of my schedule and being able to travel when I want to.
What’s the hardest thing about being an entrepreneur?
Discipline. Everybody needs a boss, and when you don’t have one it’s easy to slack, that’s why workaholics make the best entrepreneurs because we love working around the clock, not limited to 9-5 or any set hours.
What do you wish you knew before you started your business?
I wish I knew customer service. That is one thing you can get training for but at the end of the day you learn from experience when you’re your own boss.
What vision do you have for your business?
I want to make grow my company into an internet creativity warehouse that churns out the best work and floats out its own startups.
How different is what you do now from what you wanted to do as a child?
As a child I wanted to be an accountant but now I hate accounting. Over time I started to love geography and used to draw maps of make-believe towns with roads, highways etc. That’s where my visual creativity started and I know whatever I do in life will be visual.
How long have you been working out of CapitalSquare? What has the experience been like? Would you recommend it?
I’ve worked at Capital Square since it launched last year, and I have to say it’s been great so far. It’s a conducive work environment and it makes life a lot easier for me. Instead of having to weigh the difference between working from home and renting my own office for me and my team, I have a flexible in-between.
If you could share a desk with any two people in the world, who would they be? Why?
I’d love to share a desk with Sean Parker, because I know for a fact he would churn out some crazy ideas and give me good motivation.
If you could be any animal, what would you be?
That's all folks!
