Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in digital marketing but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Thomas Rojas, Founder and President of The Rojas Group, TRGLV, located in Las Vegas, NV, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
We are in the business of supporting clients in all industries with their online marketing, presence, sales, and services. We build websites and provide Search Optimization services, digital and print advertising, content creation, and social media marketing.
Tell us about yourself
I graduated from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business and a special emphasis in Marketing and Sales. I was a professional golfer and member of the PGA of America for more than 15 years and started my own marketing company.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
The longevity of our clients. Most of our clients have been with us for over 10 years, and we are very proud of the work we have provided, the successes we have created, and the relationships we have built. Winning the Best Web Design Agency in Nevada last year and being voted in the top 20 Web Design agencies in Nevada the last 3 years was pretty nice too!
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Finding the best employees who are trustworthy and ethical. The workforce has so many talented people who are very skilled in the services we provide, yet finding the best ones can often be a challenge.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Follow your passion. I know it sounds cliche, but there is a reason why you hear the saying, "if you work in your areas of passion, you never work a day in your life." I am not sure that never working a day in your life, even if you are very passionate about what you do every day, is true, but if you don't have a passion for how you will be spending the majority of your time, your chances of being successful, and happy, or both is certainly diminished. Life is short, so my best advice is to follow what you love and enjoy.
