The luxury content creator, Stefan Thurairatnam, has only recently entered his industry within the last three years but he has already managed to gain lots of traction as a marketing expert. Since he was very young 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. After five years of working his 9-5 corporate job for a large financial institution, Stefan experienced an event that greatly affected his life. This experience completely changed his views on life and made Stefan reconsider the life path he was on and what he truly wanted to do for the rest of his life.
After this experience Stefan took it as a second chance to live life which is when he earned a position as an ambassador for Luxury World Traveler from Gil Antolin, which is when he decided to quit his 9-5 job and board a one way plane to wherever his finger landed on a globe. The mentorship that Gill, the founder of Luxury World Traveler, gave to Stefan provided him with the resources that put him in the position he is in today. He ignored everything and let his passion lead him to his dream lifestyle. Stefan currently manages LuxVision Media Group, a high end marketing and social media consulting agency.
Even though it may seem like Stefan just decided to follow his passion which led him to his dream life, he ran into many struggles along the way. Leaving a stable job at a successful company for a career path with no guarantee of success, required him to overcome any fear or doubt he had about his decision. What he did is a highly intimidating and stressful task that most people are not able to follow through with. His advice to anyone who wants to follow their dreams is to just go for it and don’t let the struggles along the way keep you from the end goal. Despite enjoying what he does, Stefan still faces struggles everyday. As a luxury content creator and marketing professional, the success of his entire company is heavily based on his creativity. All the videos, photos, posts, and concepts that they produce must be meticulously planned and executed.
Since we live in the modern era where anybody can pick up a camera and begin creating content, the content creation and marketing industry is more competitive than it’s ever been before. The amount of people who are desperately trying to become successful content creators significantly surpasses the demand of the industry. Due to the intense competition Stefan must make sure that he is producing content that is truly one of a kind and can be distinguished from the rest. Having to create such superb work is far from easy and further adds to the stress that Stefan experiences. Despite how stressful the work is for Stefan it is his passion and he would take it over a traditional 9-5 any day of the week.
