- How did you start your businesses and what inspired you to do so?
“All my life I wanted to be very successful as a freelancer. I was born in 1992 in Israel and I have always been determined. I wanted to succeed, and knew that I had to do whatever was necessary so that I could achieve my goals. I had to persevere even when things got difficult. I tried to stay versatile – never focusing too much on one passion; rather than broadening my horizon and learning as much as possible about different fields. I decided to always keep learning and expanding my skill sets – I knew that this would set me apart from others.”
2. You have businesses in many different sectors. Why is it important to be versatile in business and how do you do it?
“The first step is to make international connections with serious people; after that everything is easier. Making sure that you aren’t confined to one sector is very important, as it ensures success in one area where others might undergo temporary losses. I am not the only one who tries to operate business in different industries, and it is becoming more and more popular. Those who succeed now try to work with many passions, instead of just one. I operate my businesses in numerous industries including advertising, information security, online tickets, and real estate. These are all very different fields, but my dedication to all them is essential to making them successes.”
3. What business advice could you give to young entrepreneurs, like yourself, who have many passions?
“Opportunity comes and you should take it with both hands. Always be open to something new and making connections with different people. These relationships will be integral to the success and expansion of your business. You must be willing to learn from these leaders so that you can also be like them in the future. It’s also important to remember where you come from and what you stand for – I support women’s rights and I try to alleviate some of the suffering of poor families in Israel.”
4. What is it like to be so successful at such a relatively young age?
“This is very flattering to me. I feel like I have done what I was always meant to – I always wanted to be successful as a freelancer and to know that I accomplished it so early is a great feeling. I know that I worked hard, and now I want others to know that they can also do it.”
