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

I am known for my work as an artist by the name of MAKAYABUNDO. Due to my professional career and interest in people, I deal with different people and cultures in my art. In addition to that, I take on the direction of various projects and campaigns for brands and artists.

Tell us about yourself

As a child, I just wanted to do some art and pursued the dream of becoming an artist. As I got older, I realized that I could change the world and my surroundings with what I do. That's how I started doing what I'm doing now. It all started with daydreaming and ended up becoming a reality.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I am independent and can do what I want.

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

The fact that you have to motivate yourself every day. The fact that you always maintain your own value. The fact that you're always on your own.

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

  1. Just do it!
  2. Be patient.
  3. Trust yourself and the signs of god.
