Show Notes:

Rio starts off with the story how he evolved into a voice-actor and actor and then expanded into other areas like Voice-Of-God etc.

Rio’s entrepreneurial journey started off with a graphic design and Rio talks about how he used elance.com to snag the first paying customers. Rio talks about the importance of price, pitch, portfolio to get first customers.

Rio’s evolution into so many disciplines is gradual and it happened over a period of 20 years. He kept learning all the adjacent areas like SEO, video marketing, and branding.

Rio then goes into the mechanics of coordinating so many different things and how time-slicing is very important. As Rio is involved in many disparate things like acting and graphic design, he needs to make sure that that time management is critical.

As a person, Rio says he can’t stand still. He needs to keep learning, doing many different things. But having clear priorities like making sure that basic necessities are taken care of is key.

Rio’s advice is to learn as much as possible about a topic, absorb everything, ask questions, and find mentors.
