Adapting To The Digitalization Of The Music Industry

Published

on

I was recently able to have a chat with Devain Doolaramani who has accumulated an extensive amount of experience through handling numerous projects in both the financial and marketing spheres. At the age of 16, he began to experiment with social media and ran a Facebook page which amassed over 200,000 likes and built an Instagram page that eventually amassed over 900,000 followers, both of which he monetized. He exhibits qualities of teamwork, dedication, hard work, skills and traits that he believes culminate into future success.

He currently manages 25M worth of influencers across TikTok and Instagram and has ran digital marketing campaigns for Sony, Warner, Atlantic, Universal and artists such as Sam Smith, Rita Ora, Oliver Tree, Nicky Romero and more.

When was the first time you tasted success Devain?

I think that the first time that I tasted success was when I was 16. I began to manage an Instagram with 800,000 followers and built it into a business. I think that managing that page gave me the mindset to keep on doing entrepreneurial things which is what I began to do. Through managing that page, I built relationships with companies and e-commerce businesses all around the world and individuals who were looking to get exposure.

Wow! 800,000 followers is a huge audience. So, why do you want to be successful and what’s your ultimate vision of success for yourself?

I want to be successful because I think that success allows you to help others create the world that you’re living in. My ultimate vision of success for myself is being comfortable in the position I am with the necessities I need. I think that success brings forth maturity and those who are successful are the ones with the most strategic minds when they were building their success. My end goal is to help those who want to achieve success and have the drive to achieve it do so.

Thank you so much for sharing your story Devain! Do you have any last words of advice for readers?

My advice would be to absolutely never give up and keep working towards your vision because anyone could do it.

Meet Anton Ortigas; ​one of 2019s top travel photography artist.

Published

on

Anton lives in the corporate world; he breathes the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle. He seems like your average yuppie: finished his MBA, works a day job, dabbles in photography… if only they were that. Instead his Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship from Ateneo GSB is put to good use daily in his many roles: first, as one of the youngest Country Managers of an international company, second, as an owner of an f&b franchisor, and third, as a globetrotting Instagram influencer.

Anton is behind Cotecna Elite Philippines Inc., a leading third-party audit, training, testing, inspection, and certification (ATTIC) global provider dedicated to developing and employing Filipinos in different provinces so they can provide local companies with world-class assurance services. With a bustling professional workforce of more than 300 employees in the Philippines, Anton has certainly carved himself a top spot in a niche industry, and yet despite his success, you can still see him in action, always in pursuit of bettering himself and others around him. This is why they recently launched their capacity-building initiative The Cotecna Institute, a training facility providing technical and vocational education to further professionalize the industry. It also provides leadership and skills enhancement seminars available to the youth in partnership with various government agencies.

His passion for empowering people goes beyond the confines of skyscrapers and traffic jams, and this is seen in We The People Coffee and Tea Company, a homegrown farm-to-palate coffee shop with three branches in Manila that serves handcrafted specialty coffee made from locally sourced and roasted beans. It also features curated products from students and budding entrepreneurs, as well as art pieces from illustrators, writers, and photographers from metro south, including his pieces from his internet-famous IG @antonorts, with over 90,000 followers and counting. There you can see his travels around the globe, captured in their wonder with Anton’s unique take on lines, shapes, and colors. When asked how he can manage to find time to take such beautiful photos in his busy life, he answers: “Social media provides an escape – a means to find inspiration and breathing spaces in other realities.” It’s no wonder that he takes such poignant and inspired images.

Here are some questions I asked him:

How did you make a name for yourself in your industry?

By taking photos of unique things, creating moments through everyday life experiences

What obstacles did you face to get to where you are now? 

I was young when I started managing our family business. It was hard to improve our corporate culture in the beginning because more senior employees did not listen and were resistant to change.

How did you overcome these obstacles?

Lead by example and worked hard to get more clients. I implemented programs within the company that empowered our employees to make decisions and lead their teams independently. This infused in them a feeling of ownership and it leads to positive growth and unity amongst each other.

He has very affordable courses and alert rooms, in addition to that, he offers a FREE forex & stock Accelerator where he covers choosing your broker, what kind of trader you should be, what apps you need to get started, and more.

It wasn’t always easy for Tyler, he went from being homeless at the young age of 18. Going all out on his dreams of becoming a successful trader required some sacrifices to be made along the way. He dealt with a lot of loneliness when he first started trading and his entrepreneurial journey.

“I had to cut out anyone who wasn’t willing to grow, reach new levels, hit milestones in their life and who weren’t shooting for the same goals as me. The crazy thing was, it was pretty much my whole circle I had to cut off so it was pretty much just myself and my determination this whole process. Lots of people can’t stand being alone but it’s something you will have to endure as part of the journey.”

But by the age of 22 & mastering forex trading, he has been able to grow his Instagram account to over 48k followers, live a luxury lifestyle and has been able to buy himself a big house in a gated community along with a foreign car, all within a 4-year time span.

on

Clint Fester is a forex mentor & founder of FestX. An educational platform for learning how to trade in the forex market. Clint put together this platform himself after gaining extensive knowledge doing a local and two major international courses that completely changed his life.

Clint Fester was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. He is 33 years young and is a full-time Forex Trader & Entrepreneur. He is the Husband of Simone Fester and a father to his 2 beautiful kids Kyro and Kourtney. He started his entrepreneurial journey in March of 2015. The start of 2018, having so much success in FX Trading, he started his mentorship 2-day course which started with just one student and rapidly grew only 2 months of operations. 6 months later Clint has a 100% success rate teaching all of his students.

He started trading back in Feb 2016, with all of his success and hard work in Forex Trading he launched his own company and brand FestX in June 2017. FestX soon became as successful as his trading career. He was able to bring in a student base with over 460 students in 12 different countries. As of January 2019, he achieved what many others could only dream of. He became a self-made millionaire.

It’s not easy making it in the trading field but unlike others, Fester hustled, stayed motivated and stayed consistent. Clint’s talent was recognized globally, as he would put out his analysis on pairs and called moves while trading days & sometimes even weeks before they happened! He then always followed up with a picture afterward to show everyone he IS result-driven. He now has a great following base of over 28k followers on Instagram.

Clint went from being known as a “normal” kid from a normal town to living an abnormal life because of his high-income skill, trading forex. 

It wasn’t always easy, when I spoke to Clint about his journey to becoming a millionaire, I asked “what are some obstacles you faced”, he remembers the struggle; “the money shortage, cash was running very low in the halfway mark of my career, this was getting tough”. On his journey to becoming a self-made millionaire, he had to make plenty of sacrifices, selling his Xbox, tv, PlayStation and even his car! “I just kept my cell phone and laptop as that was the 2 most important things I needed to make it”.
