Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Aaron Spaulding, Co-Owner of CRE8VE PARADISE, located in Indianapolis, IN, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Cre8ve Paradise is a multimedia company that works with businesses, artists, entrepreneurs, and anyone with a vision. We create media content for those who need it. We do product pictures, promotional videos, photoshoots, graphic designs (logos), and much more!
Tell us about yourself
We created this business because there are a lot of people starting a business and social media is a great way to promote your business. We want to provide people with more creative content to help grow their business and their name and bring visions to life!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
One of our biggest accomplishments is taking this idea that seems so large and bringing it to life. We are only just beginning, but we have come so far from when we first got into the business, and it pushes us to continue to do more. I love giving people the creative content that they need and making connections with satisfied customers!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things that come with being a business owners is consistency. There will be days where business may be running slow, or things might just be a little difficult but trusting the process and staying consistent even when things aren't looking up makes all the difference. When you have a true passion for something and believe that you can make a difference, that consistency is what is going to take you to that next level of growth!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
First, make a plan and stick to it! It may not work out the first time, but you can always replay and make changes to it but stick with it.
Second, be consistent with whatever it is. Keep working, keep learning and never give up! Especially on those days when you don't feel like working, work a little extra!
And third is to collaborate! Don't be afraid to reach out to people and work with others! Working together is the best way to learn and build connections. Collaboration is key because everyone's journey is not the same, so you could learn something from them, and they can learn from you!
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
For any creatives who have trouble creating, remember that art is subjective! No one can tell you that your art is bad. The key to creating "good" art is all within you! Putting yourself, your emotions, and your mind in your work to where it is good for you. Don't create for the money, fame, or to impress others, do it because you love it! That's where true creativity comes from. You Cre8 Your Paradise!
