Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in content creation but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with ROGU3N1NJA, a gaming content creator located in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
My business is a YouTube channel called ROGU3N1NJA, and the target audience for the channel is mainly gamers aged 16-25.
Tell us about yourself
When I first started the channel, I thought it was never going to be a success and just a waste of time. Until one day, a tutorial I made started doing really well views-wise, and at that moment, I knew I made it, and from then on, what kept me motivated was because that video did so well, I now had the confidence to say to myself, I can make a video that will do well, so I continued to do so, and I had multiple very successful videos in the millions of views, so never give up.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I mentioned it previously, but I feel my biggest achievement is the video I made which hit over 2 million views.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Time management, at the time, I was still studying, so I had very little time to make videos and get through university at the same time, but I made it work, and I'm happy I didn't quit.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Don't give up; if you keep working hard, eventually, the hard work will pay off even though you might not see it right now.
- Plan your time well so you know when you're going to do what, so you don't get stressed out, and don't get strapped for time and get stuck doing multiple things at once.
- Watch what other successful people did, but don't copy them. Analyze why what they did works, then try it out yourself and try to improve it.
