We had the good fortune of connecting with Jeremi Wright and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jeremi, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I look at taking risks as a necessary part of growth in life. There’s a proverb that goes, “you can’t expect to achieve anything if you never take any risks”. Or said another way, “Nothing ventured nothing gained”.
That being said, I believe in risk management. Every meaningful risk does not need a major sacrifice attached to it, When my indicators align and it feels right then that’s when I know it’s a good idea to invest my time, energy, and resources. I know that seemingly insignificant investments can yield big rewards, when they are compounded over time.
There is a principle I practice that Albert Einstein called the 8th wonder of the world. It is called compound interest. That is leveraging time with small consistent victories to create exponential growth.
The worthwhileness of the reward must be taken into account as well, because not everything can be worth your time.
Being in risky situations provide unique moments that allow me to train myself to see other forms of successes and opportunities that I can use in the future.
Finally, my last point on risk is this: When I am taking a big risk, I like to shift my perspective and ask, “What if I succeed?”
Then I ask, “Is that a risk I’m willing to take?
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What sets Digital Advocators Media apart is our process. We know the best way to prove our value is to work, to learn, and to execute. We always want to out-work our potential,
We’ve noticed that a lot of times businesses get into a place where they end up going backwards in their creation process. It seems like the more they mature the more responsible their brands become and the more governors they put on their vision and ability to create. We fight to make sure that your vision always stay pure.
So for us it’s not a matter of pushing you beyond limitations or expectations. It’s really a matter of protecting your vision and creations. That’s really the key and when we are able to do that our world of possibilities seems limitless.
One thing we are proud of is our ability to come through continually for our clients.
We are excited about our innovations as it pertains to the way we integrate technology into our process.
We got where we are today by treating our journey as if it were a marathon. That is by staying hungry even as we fill up and being intentional about our operation.
One main lesson that we’ve learned is that growth is not linear. Small successes count and perceived set backs sometimes lay the seed for bigger successes later.
We want the world to know that DAM is about empowering the creator. The work that we do is to shift perspectives and build wells of creative wealth.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
All the people I really care about I take to a taco truck in Burbank called Pablito’s or to the Fish Dish or I’m lighten up the grill myself .
If you’re out with me on a weekend we’re probably going to be kicking back on a rooftop, it could be Catch LA, but the best case scenario is a rooftop with a pool situation.
We’re going to go on a hike to get a work out in. If you’ve never been to LA before, we’re going to do Runyon Canyon so you can see all of LA at once. That being said, we might be exploring and finding new trails, you’d be surprised what views you might end up walking into.
We’re going to check out CAAM for some artist inspiration.
We have to take a beach trip, if you want to relax there’s Malibu. If you want to be in the mix we can do Venice Beach or the Santa Monica Pier
If you want to watch a movie, we’d check out the Paramount Drive-In Theater.
If we have time left we would catch a show. The last one I went to was Family Feud at Universal Studios. That was the funniest show I’ve ever been to in real life.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
To get to this position where we can genuinely impact the people we serve has been an extraordinary adventure that keeps getting better. There are plenty of people who’ve actively supported our growth that deserve thanks.
Our first Shoutout is to our Clients. This is directed to the talented organizations and people who put their ideas in our hands and collaborate with us to transform vision into reality.
Second, we want to Shoutout our Community of Supporters. This is a distinctive group of people that spread the creative wealth, share our stories, and engage with us. You are the catalyst of our growth.
Finally, Shoutout to our Team of Creators. The producers, editors, engineers, crew, talent, artists, designers, publishers, networks, mentors, and coaches who give your expertise and push the boundaries of creativity and capability.
One book in particular that has helped me stay focus is called Mastery, it is an account of influential people throughout history and the principles they use to approached their work.
