After only three years in the content creation industry, Stefan Thurairatnam has managed to earn a reputation for himself as a marketing expert and his marketing company. Since his youth the Sri Lankan, Toronto raised, content creator has enjoyed photography. Stefan would travel the world with his friends and family while always capturing the moment. Photography and travel were such a prominent passion of his that he took the next step and began his journey into the world of content creation. Stefan had been working at one of the largest financial institutions in Canada for about five years when he had an experience that changed the course of his career. He used this experience as a wake up call to reflect on his life and where he was going with it and whether or not he was happy with what he was doing.
After he spent time reflecting he ultimately decided that he was not satisfied with the path that he was on. He earned himself a position as an ambassador for Luxury World Traveler From Gil Antolin, quit his 9-5 corporate job and booked a one way flight to wherever his finger landed on the globe. The mentorship that Gill, the founder of Luxury World Traveler, gave to Stefan provided him with the resources that made him the person he is today. After letting his passion guide him through life he was able to create a lifestyle that he was proud of and happy with. It was only a matter of time before he opened his own marketing and social media consulting agency, LuxVision Media Group.
Following his passion made Stefan happier but it was still an intimidating and scary step to take. He struggled most of the way through and had to work hard to keep his dreams alive. Taking that step towards his dreams meant that he had to silence all the doubts that he had in himself, a difficult task for most people to do. He advises anyone who wants to follow their dreams to just go for it and don’t let the struggles along the way deter you from the end goal. Despite enjoying what he does, Stefan still faces struggles everyday. Due to the nature of his work, Stefan needs to spend countless hours on every video, picture, post, and concept that he produces. The success of his company relies heavily on his creativity. Everything that he produces must be planned out and perfected.
Since the marketing industry is more competitive now than it has ever been before the entire industry is more competitive than it has ever. This requires that Stefan puts even more consideration into his work so that he can truly be set apart from any other content creator. Stefan is constantly thinking about the content that he has to produce and the job security is much lower than a 9-5, but his passion keeps him motivated throughout the entire process.
