Excerpts from the conversation:
Q: Why digital media? What moved you to choose a career in the digital world?
A: Well, it is a field with endless opportunities. I would say that I did not choose the media, but the media chose me. The field is all about creativity and innovation. If any latest trends are happening daily, it has to be in the field of digital media. I have always had a creative mind, and the creativity I saw on social media inspired me to make a career in this field. Not just brands or companies, everyone relies on the internet to gain momentum. In today’s time, building a digital presence has become significant and it will grow in the years to come. Another interesting aspect that fascinated me is the fact that digital media channels have gradually replaced traditional media channels. Companies are spending more on digital ads, and that pretty much sums up that digitalization has taken over the world. This field is all about learning, and I hope to grasp the best of knowledge through the internet.
Q: You have already aced the game in the real estate business. How do you plan to make a mark in the digital world?
A: Yes, I have worked hard to build a real estate business in Miami, Florida. Besides that, I have an exotic car rental company. Digital media was a career which I wanted to pursue for a very long time. The best part of being a digital expert is that there is minimal investment. You can work from any nuke and corner of the world. While I am building my real estate business in the States, I look at digital media as a side hustle. After all, in today’s time, all you need is a smartphone and the internet. These are the key things to get started in as a digital expert. My initial plan is to integrate my businesses over the digital domain. Once it is done, I have further thought to help the companies and startups grow over the digital space. The idea is to help people and businesses build a strong profile over the web.
Q: Well, the plan already looks a win-win situation. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
A: Umm, on the top of my game. (smiles) I see myself bringing a change in the digital industry. I have noticed that content works the best over the internet. I aim to help people by providing them with the best content in terms of blogs, pictures and videos. I plan to travel all over the world and have some beautiful workstations. It is too early to comment as the world is currently fighting the pandemic. But I am sure, things are getting better, and everything will get back to normal soon.
Q: What are the biggest challenges faced by Diego Alexis Gonzalez Gomez?
A: My life has been no less than a nomad. I have been moving from one city to the other from an early age. Besides this, I have been away from my family at a tender age. I have been hopping from one place to another and this journey has been one of its kind so far. Language barriers have always been a hurdle for me as getting accustomed to the new language and culture took time for me. These challenges have been all my life, but now I am used to it. After all, to get what you want in life; you have to step out of your comfort zone. That’s what I am doing by overcoming these challenges.
Q: Could you throw some light on your biggest achievements in life?
A: “The first and foremost thing which I consider as an achievement is that I am very organized. To be successful, the first step is to be disciplined and organized. Planning and executing things have helped me achieve all the milestones. I have tried my hand in various jobs and have gained tremendous exposure in every job that I have done. Digital media for that matter is a new work in my plate, and I am sure that I will excel in this field as well. Last but not the least, the milestones I have achieved started from my mindset. I have had a positive mindset about the work I have been doing. I believe when you are optimistic about your goals, they gradually become your achievements.”, Diego said.
Q: One piece of advice for all the aspiring business minds?
A: All I would say is defy all the odds. Don’t play safe. Step out of the comfort zone and achieve the impossible. Often, I have been underestimated by many. But I have made sure to not get diverted by people’s opinions. Work hard and learn to work smart as well. Always have the focus on your goals and not on what people are doing. To grow in life, you must go through some obstacles in life. Work hard, dream big and never shy away from learning new things. Innovation is what makes ordinary people live an extraordinary life.
