We had the good fortune of connecting with January Neal and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi January, what inspires you?
I’m really inspired by entrepreneurs. They are so passionate and contagious. They come from many different walks of life and their stories are always unique and inspiring. Each entrepreneur solves the problems familiar to him or her using their perspective and the resources available to them. Their work profoundly transforms our lives for the better and it keeps the world distinctive. Starting a business is courageous and my goal is to help entrepreneurs forge the path to success by building a brand that is everlasting.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?

I started this agency over 5 years ago and I am so proud of what it has become. We authentically connect to clients all over the world and it has been such an honor to be able to tell their stories through creativity. We have grown so much in the last few years but the journey has not always been easy. Running a business is tough to the ego, to say the least. Sometimes you win but oftentimes you fail. I’ve learned to take failure in stride. Pivoting and staying flexible is the key to success.

I always thought I’d be the CEO of someone else’s company, I never dreamed that I  would be the CEO of my own. I feel like being an entrepreneur teaches you to become the ultimate adult. But the beautiful thing about being an entrepreneur is that you get to chose what every day looks like and you get to create the change that you want to see in the world.

If you have a brand that has meaning behind it, a product or influencer looking to create world impact then New  World Agency LA is an agency for you!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love a great view and Los Angeles has some of the best views because of its diverse terrain!

You can grab some incredible food with an ocean view at Nobu in Malibu, it’s always a vibe. Or head downtown and “rooftop it” at The Rooftop Restaurant for cocktails. Then end in the desert to relax with the most perfect mountain views and soak in the Hot Springs and do some yoga, meditation, sound baths, and crystal work. This is totally my vibe and the way I like to do LA!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There are 3 key factors that drive my success that I would like to acknowledge:
My Parents: My foundation came from my parents, they taught me that the single most important attribute to becoming successful is self-discipline. It is through their hard work and dedication to their jobs that taught me that hard work truly pays off!

My Team: I may be the CEO of my company but I am not the boss. It is my team that drives me every day and helps me grow in ways that are imaginable. They are my superpower.

My Clients: I love my clients so much! I learn, grow and build with them every day. I thank them in the humblest of ways because without them there would be no New World LA. They allow me to create every day and to me that’s magical.
