BusinessInterviews.com: What inspired you to launch your business?

Adrian Rubin: I’ve always been passionate about the arts and knew very early on that I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to express myself creatively. I originally got my start in the customer service industry, but it wasn’t until I ventured out on my own as a freelancer that I really began to feel a sense of professional fulfillment. Ultimately, I moved to Brooklyn and started seeking work as a creative director.

BusinessInterviews.com: Do you have any recent success stories that you’d like to share with our readers?

Adrian Rubin: In September, 2016, we launched a branding campaign that was nearly three years in the making. We put in a great deal of time and effort into raising awareness of the client’s brand identity, company, and products, and seeing all that hard work translate into tangible results gave me a tremendous sense of pride. The project also reminded me of the importance of taking a patient approach.

BusinessInterviews.com: What has been your biggest challenge as a business owner and how have you met that challenge?

Adrian Rubin: There was a time when I first started freelancing that I felt that I couldn’t afford to turn down any project that came along. It definitely kept me busy, but I began to realize that I needed to be more selective if I wanted to feel a sense of true fulfillment from my work. Once I came to this realization, I adopted a policy in which I would only accept a project if I believed it would satisfy my creativity, curiosity, and passion. Adhering to this selective philosophy was challenging at first, but it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made as a professional.

Adrian Rubin: produce outstanding work, and I make sure to fully leverage those skills in each project I take on. I simply stay focused on utilizing my skill set while meeting deadlines and communicating closely with the client. There is no need to overcomplicate things, and I believe my competitors recognize and respect me for my straightforward and transparent approach.

BusinessInterviews.com: What’s the biggest risk that you’ve ever taken and how did it turn out?

Adrian Rubin: As a freelancer, I’m much more likely to be affected by the twists and turns of the economy, and during the downturn of about 10 years ago I was tempted to seek out something a bit more stable. Instead, I resisted the temptation and bet on myself by forging ahead with my freelance work.

Not only did I survive one of the worst financial crises ever, I actually expanded my business by a significant degree during this time. It was a big risk to be sure, but it is one I am extremely proud of. More than a decade later and I am still reaping the rewards of that risky decision, but I was so confident in my talent and ability that it never really felt all that risky to me anyway.
