How Hardships Have Shown 27-Year-Old Designer, Omar Sacca His True Purpose.

Omar has been able to develop a mindset that makes him unstoppable in the entrepreneur space.

Meet Omar

Omar Sacca is a 27-year-old designer from Long Island, he is currently working towards a degree in the field of advertising and graphic design. As a hobby, Omar enjoys producing electronic music and has been doing it for nearly ten years. He moved to North Carolina around two years ago, where he has built a network of colleagues with shared goals. This has led him to step out of the 9-to-5 space and into self-employment.

What are your goals for the next 5-10 years?

Omar: In 5-10 years, I see myself as the head of a graphic design agency. I also see a lot of potential in my hobbies taking off, but my main pursuit is in providing value to others in general. So whichever thing bears fruit is what I’ll do, because I’ll love it all the same.

“Chasing what makes you happy is the only way you’ll truly succeed.” – Omar Sacca

What are your most prized accomplishments to date?

Omar: Recently, I created album artwork for a dubstep musician known as Big Chocolate, whose music has reached hundreds of thousands of people to date. I also created promotional 3D renders for his social media pages, and made them available for his fans to use as device wallpapers.
I’ve been signed to Plasmapool Media Entertainment, a digital record label in Germany, since late 2013 and I’ve released music with them under the name Galactix. My music has been played at festivals and on local radio stations in many parts of the US.

What piece of advice would you give to aspiring entrepreneurs?

Omar: The most helpful thing in my life has been to constantly remind myself that while life can get difficult. (And we don’t always get what we’re after.) At the end of the day, we’re still here. Which means we have the opportunity to continue chasing our dreams. Always be grateful, find things that remind you how well off you actually are. Everyone has something to be thankful for. That’s the thing I believe keeps people focused, because success is not guaranteed. Be happy where you are now, and you’ll be in the right place to start improving your situation.
