Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Jeremy Mura, Brand designer & creator based in Marsden Park, NSW, AU.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I help young designers build their businesses and earn a living with brand design.

Tell us about yourself

I completed my bachelor's in visual communication (graphic design) in 2015, and I've been freelancing since 2013. I launched my business around 2016, but pushed it to the end of 2019 properly, so it's been a journey.

I love teaching others my experiences and helping them succeed because when I freelanced years ago, I made lots of mistakes, and there weren't mentors out there.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Working with big brands such as Adobe, Disneyland Paris, Macquarie Business School, etc. When I was younger, I wanted to work or collab with these brands, so it was a goal I achieved.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Juggling everything at once can be a challenge. Being a husband, a father, and a business owner is a lot of priorities. I must be efficient with my time and manage it well to spend more time with my family and ensure I hit my big goals.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Focus on one thing. Try to do only a few things. Build your expertise and skills around one niche or industry.
  2. Focus on getting revenue because cash flow is the lifeblood of a business, and double down on things that work.
  3. Focus on something other than strategy first. Just take action because you learn way faster with experience and failures.

Where can people find you and your business?
