Acho que ainda é muito cedo para falar em Sucesso com S maiúsculo, mas um amigo nosso de Dubai, Moaz Al-Ibrahim, pediu uma entrevista nossa para o seu novo blog: Success Today.
O Moaz acompanha nosso trabalho a distância e viu toda a mudança de carreira (de engenharia para foto e vídeo). Ele ficou intrigado sobre como surgiu a ideia do Studio Marios Bros e perguntou se tinhamos alguns conselhos para o sucesso.

"Conheci o Moaz no início de 2009, quando me mudei para Saumur, na região Pays de La Loire na França, trabalhamos na Schneider Electric juntos, vendendo paineis de média tensão para Europa, Ásia e Oriente Médio.
Logo nos primeiros dias de trabalho descobrimos que tinhamos um senso de humor em comum e um modo de ver a vida parecido, otimistas e tranquilos, a amizade foi consequência. Essa foto ao lado foi em 2010, quando voltei à França para fazer o mestrado e tive a sorte de poder estar no casamento do Alexandre, um dos meus melhores amigos de nacionalidade francesa.

Success Story: Studio Marios Bros interviewed by Moaz Al-Ibrahim
Moaz: Who is José Mário, José?
Zé Mário: José Mário Bonacin, born in Amapá (north of Brazil) and lives in Curitiba (south of Brazil). I am engineer with master degree in Electrical Vehicles at ParisTech (Paris, France). I worked 4 years at big companies like Siemens, Renault and Schneider Electric.
Moaz: How did the idea come to your mind? Why did you choose it over engineering?
Zé Mário: Working at big companies taught me that I really don't like three "R":
· Rush Hours
Creating my own business would allow me to end with these 3 "R"s.
Other thing that made me think about starting my own business is the fact that It is very difficult to implement new ideas in big companies, people used to say my ideas were great but it was impossible to change some standards because too much people were involved or the bosses didn't want new things to test or worry about.
The entrepreneurship idea became real when I left Renault in Paris and came back to Brazil in December 2011. I was 24 years old, I was temporary unemployed and living with my parents. Renault-Brazil called me for a job interview and I said "No thanks"... I thought: "If I want to take risks... It's now or never!"
I always loved music, photo and video. I looked around and realized that my equipment was very professional so I did a research for local companies of music, photo and video, and I found out that many of them didn't have Standards, Customer Relationship Management or a Financial and Strategical Planning.
Moaz: Describe your business.
Zé Mário: Studio Marios Bros offers Photo, Video and Music services for enterprises and people.
Moaz: What is the most thing you enjoy about your business?
Zé Mário: I can do whatever I want and I work with happy people!
Moaz: What is your plan for future?
Zé Mário: Expand my business and employ many people, improve the quality continuously and start other new companies.
Moaz: What is advice for other people to success?
Zé Mário: Do your best in what you want to do, you don't want to grow old and regret not having tried another path in your life. The beginning is very difficult, but if you insist it's sure will work!
