The 21st century is home to more than 500 million entrepreneurs from all walks of life. There has never been a better time to become self-employed than today, yet the number one reason for businesses to fail is a lack of market need. For everyone either starting out or looking to expand their own business, young entrepreneur Wanner Aarts shares his journey from working a 9 to 5 to launching his highly successful digital firm.
Based in the Netherlands, Wanner Digital Media is a digital licensing company founded in 2018. In a short span of time, the company has continued to grow exponentially and has a team of 18 freelancers working with clients all over the world. Wanner Arts himself knows a great deal about the intricacies of the YouTube copyright system. He has skilfully harnessed that into developing and diversifying his business to multiple niches.
Wanner’s journey began back in 2013 where he started his gaming channel on YouTube as a passion project. For almost 2 years, Aarts continued to upload videos on popular game Minecraft and learnt the ins and outs of being a digital content creator. The channel thrived and he had more than 350K subscribers when he chose to change professions. However working a 9 to 5 office job for a few years, Aarts realized he wanted to be his own boss and that drove him to start his own business online.
Having years of experience already under his belt, Aarts was able to tap into the right opportunities and work with his dream clients. As a self-made social media expert, he is capable of acquiring high engagement levels on social media platforms including Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. “Since I first started, the company has achieved an ergonomic growth. My team and I work hard to ensure consistency, attention to details and 100% client satisfaction”, shares Aarts.
Aside from his business, Aarts also loves fitness training and is an avid explorer. At only 21 years of age, he has travelled to more than 30 countries. He found his passion online at a young age and went against traditional career paths to establish his name as a young entrepreneur. Aarts hopes that his journey will provide motivation to all trying to become successful by making their passion a career.
