What does your agency do?

We are a complete-service marketing company positioned in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We are a group of creatives, managers, videographers, graphic designers, editors, social media analyst, artists, photographers, and like-minded thinkers. We specify in logo design, social media control, internet improvement, public relations, photography and videography.

What has been the hardest impediment you’ve conquer?

I suppose one of the important encounters any employer faces are hiring the right people. As a company, you are only as good as the group of workers you have working and delivering services. Good people and tough people are hard to come by. My goal is for the individuals that work with me to feel comfortable and feel like it’s not just my company but theirs as well.  We want it to feel more like a family.

 What piece of advice do you desire someone had given you at the beginning of your career?

Read books. I never favored reading books and once I started reading books I gained a lot of knowledge and learned a lot of mistakes other people made to help me navigate throughout business.

What values and ideas have brought about your success?

Humility is one values that I stress. Whether you are a million dollar CEO or a lady serving lunch in the cafeteria, appreciation is first and principal. Honesty is also the best policy when doing business. When dealing with clients and peoples money conducting honest business is top priority. Once you’re sincere, people will have no any problem paying you.

 Who are your biggest affects and people you recognize and why?

Today I admire a number of diverse men like Grant Cardone, Gary V., Alex Morton, Dan Lok, Damon John, Max Maxwell, Jay-Z, Diddy and Raphael Vargas.

None of us are capable of acquire fulfillment without some assistance along the way. Is there a specific character that you are grateful toward who aided get you to in which you are?

I am surrounded by a bunch of likeminded individuals who keep me pushing forward.  First and foremost my wife who continues to encourage me throughout my journey as an entrepreneur.  Also my family has shown nothing but continued support.

What do you see as your best success in lifestyles?

My best success would be marrying my wife, buying my first house and being able to establish myself as a great honest businessman.  I want all of my companies to be doing seven figures a year and I will not stop until that happens.  I also am proud of publishing my first book.  I was a person who didn’t even like to read so the fact that now I am a published author is something I am extremely proud of.
