Please introduce yourself, what you do, why you do it, and what you want people to know about you.
My name is David Komisarchik. I am a full-time freelance digital content creator. I am also working on building my own digital content and social media consultant agency.
I started creating men’s fashion content in 2018 as a way to get creative. It continued to grow and I realized that my passion was there. I quit my job in 2020 and began doing this full time.
Now, my goal is to help other small business and entrepreneurs use social media to their own benefit and educate creators and businesses on how to work together. I want to make this industry more fair for all creators.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
Content isn’t just snapping a few photos for me. It’s another expression of art. I use content to share my passion and my story so I can connect with my audience. I have a lot of heart in my content. I think that sets me apart.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you wanted to do what you do now. Who did you tell first? What has it been like since that moment?
I was encouraged by my now business partner, but I’ve been lucky to be encouraged by a lot of friends and family. It’s been freeing. Getting to do something you actually want to do makes the long hours worth it.
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve had to face and how did you overcome it?
Self doubt has been my biggest challenge. When you are freelancing or working for yourself, you overthink every decision. At least I do. I’ve had to learn to trust my gut and rebuild my self-confidence.
If you had to pick the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could take your career (or business) to the next level…who would those 3 people be?
- Chris Evans, not just because I’m a huge marvel fan, but because he’s taken his platform and turned it into something positive.
- Dax Shepherd. He’s mastered the art of being vulnerable on a public platform and gotten to connect with so many influential people as a result. He also owns a lot of his own mistakes and that’s inspiring.
- Dan Levy. He created a show that was so endearing and creative, but also showed a side of himself. I’d love to learn more about how to do that.
