Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Amin & Ammar Harb, co-founders of 7th Dimension Studio, located in Ottawa, ON, Canada.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

We are in the business of capturing the details to showcase who you are and what your business is all about through appealing photographs and video. We help individuals and businesses tell their stories and build their brands.

Through video and images, we take care of the creative process. We solve problems and work hard to make your company stand out from the rest. A picture is worth a thousand words. Capturing what is special and unique about you and/or your business is our #1 priority.

Our customers are individuals or businesses that need to improve their online presence in a genuine and appealing way. We help them to connect to their clients. Building greater recognition, brand awareness, and trust.

Tell us about yourself

7th Dimension Studio came together from our combined passion for helping others and solving problems in a fun and creative way. We love the visual aspect of telling people’s stories and sharing their stories with the world. Every person and business has a unique story to tell, and there is nothing more rewarding than being able to capture it.

We gain immense satisfaction every time we help a client, whether it’s an individual who gains confidence through a photoshoot with us or a business that needs help to increase its online presence or to showcase its brand/image.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

While there are many accomplishments we are proud of, the one that still stands out most was our very first client project because of the positive impact it had on the sales and branding of the business. It was the proof we needed to really believe in ourselves, knowing that we had what it takes!

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

There are so many aspects of running a business that are challenging, but often the hardest part is taking the dive in and going for it. Believe in yourself, take risks, and don’t be afraid of failure. Failure brings great growth. Be true to yourself and follow your heart. Block out the noise. Continue to follow through on your passion and goals.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Have a vision and never stop making the decisions today that will benefit your company’s future and goals.
  2. Pick the right people to work with! Build a team with a variety of strengths who believe in your vision as much as you do. Surrounding yourself with the right people is a key factor to success.
  3. Put in 100% effort. Believe in yourself and do something every day that will get you one step closer to your goals. The path to your dream may not look exactly how you envisioned it; stay open to opportunities and never be afraid of taking the risks that will truly help you to grow and succeed.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

There are many reasons not to start a business, but for the 1000 plus reasons not to, you only need 1 to counter it. Ask yourself the following questions:

Is this something that I love and enjoy?
Can I see myself doing this every single day?
Is my dream worth pushing past all the challenges?
Am I willing to make the hard choices and decisions and take risks to make it possible?

Because life is going to be hard anyway, so you might as well spend that time fulfilling your true passion and calling.

Where can people find you and your business?
