Today we’d like to introduce you to Rola Jabri.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Rola. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I was born in Syria raised in the USA. A single mother blessed with two amazing daughters. I worked my way up to build my business and have it become an asset that benefits and helps business owners. I graduated from college with a fashion design degree. I was filled with passion and enthusiasm to have my atelier. I opened my design studio at age 21. However, when my business reached a stagnant point, I realized that there was a missing link that separated my passion from reality to connect and work with more clients. I invested my time to figure it out. When I did, I fell in love with it and it became my new passion, my new career.
The link was marketing, the effective marketing that links the business owner’s passion with clients through creative and intellectual strategies. The fact that I had to combine my creativity with intelligence to master excellence in creating effective strategies made me feel whole and complete. And made me realize that I can’t operate on one side of me, it has to be both, creativity and intelligence, the heart and mind.
It has been 13 years since I opened my marketing company, the best choice I ever made. I love what triggered this choice in me. I believe that the experience I had of reaching a stagnant point as a business owner/fashion designer triggered an extra will to create effective solutions that help business owners. Connecting passion with reality is a must to turn a professional dream into a booming business.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The journey of starting, building, and elevating a business is pleasurable but not easy. As a single mother, it was pretty challenging to handle the personal and professional challenges at once, but it was worth it.
Creating success from scratch requires an emotional balance and mental clarity to be able to create solutions, make effective decisions, and adhere to your vision and authenticity in the middle of all distractions. Easier said than done, but once it is mastered the sky is the limit.
Please tell us about MAOC Studio – what should we know?
I founded my marketing and advertising company in 2006. I invested one dollar in advertising to get my first account. How I did it? I wrote the content of a flyer. I went to Staples, printed ten copies, each was ten cents. I hand-delivered the flyers to ten businesses. I got my first account on the same day. Was it the power of the one-dollar that generated the account? No, it was the content of the flyers and the strategies behind the content that made it happen and turned one dollar into a client.
Today, and after 13 years of mastering excellence I have turned the company into a marketing store online, the first in the world, transforming marketing into the future it deserves. Nowadays, people can buy everything online, from clothes to cars, why not buy marketing services online? We live in an era of digital marketing. Marketing services should be the first to be offered to buy online.
My vision was clear and simple. Itemize all the needed marketing services in packages. Price them in flat rates and give full access to business owners worldwide to buy their marketing services online. Save them time, save them the hassle of combining four to eight marketing services in one, and have them know what they are buying and receiving in advance, with full details.
Buying marketing services online is the next big thing. I am proud that MAOC Studio is leading the new way.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Success is created through our characteristics and the quality of the self that utilizes time and interactions. Staying in control of negative emotions is a must, and it is the first quality that should be mastered. Honoring integrity through honoring our word, applying ethical interactions, treating people with respect, and putting God first throughout our professional, financial and personal journey in life are some of the characters that should be honored. Once these characters are honored, appreciating our self and the quality of our self become the must-have character to wrap up the journey with awareness.
Creating success is not a random act of passion. Our characters, ethics, intellectuality, patience, faith and persistence, all get tested throughout the journey of creating success from scratch.
