When Omar sat with our editor and chief during an interview, here is what he had to say.
You are a business owner - Tell us about Images of Excellence and how you got it up and running.
Images of Excellence got started in the living room of my brother’s apartment when I got tired of working for other people and it was hard to find a job. So instead of complaining about having an income, I created one…it’s been a rough start but anything worth having is worth fighting for.
What sets it apart from similar type businesses?
What sets my business apart is that we are passionate about our work and we often go above and beyond our responsibilities as designers.
Tell us some of the struggles you face while trying to launch your business
Some of the struggles I faced when launching my business was a lack of structure and not having a clear concise business plan or having the experience of dealing with people on that level.
What state of mind were you in when you wrote your first book and where does the inspiration come from?
When I wrote my first book, it was strictly because God had instructed me to do so in prayer. Initially I was reluctant to do so, but my inspiration came from the countless people who kept pushing me to fulfill this endeavor and bring it to past.
Why do you think so many younger adults are opting to open their own businesses/partnerships and at such a rapid rate?
I believe that many younger adults are going into business for themselves because it gives them a sense of pride and responsibility as they strive for success.
What are you working on now?
Currently I’m working on my next book Learning to Love Your Judas.
What encouragement would you give upcoming graphic designers and artists?
I would recommend and suggest for them to get a mentor, someone who knows the business and that can guide them in this endeavor. Though I am successful in where I am now, my beginnings was very hard because I didn’t have anyone to pour into me and I made a lot of mistakes that could have cost me my dreams.
Do you have a favorite phrase?
One of my favorite phrases is, Perception is everything.
Any final thoughts?
You are never a product of your environment; you are a by-product of your thoughts.
