- Esther: So, dear James, first of all I` d like to thank you for your agreement to give an interview for our mass media. Introduce a little, please, yourself for our readers.

- James: My name is Uchenna James Okeke, and I am the founder of mypancho.com which is an online video services company. I’m based in Houston, Texas USA though I travel around also.

 

------------------------

 

- Ester: Why did you choose such kind of business? If to believe your FB mark you have University education in the field of business. What` s a reason of this choice?

- James: I chose the technology line of business because I have always had a passion for it. Every since I was in high school, right from the time I got my first computer, which by the way, I used up all my little savings and pocket money to buy. I love the thrill of discovering how things worked and the fulfilment of creating something useful that actually solves a problem, all from nothing.
My reason for going into the business field of study both for my undergraduate and MBA studies was primarily because I have always wanted to have my own business one day and knew that the right business skills and knowledge would help me get there.

Ester: You are an owner of very difficult kind of business. In this field you have to be not only a businessman and organizer of all, but a producer, a scenario-writer, a video-model recruiter, a filmmaker and so on. Do you have helpers (or may be you use professionals from agencies) or maybe you do a lot of needed work by yourself?

James: We’ll I initially started all by myself, working day and night, I pretty much did it all, from being the sole developer to video producer to marketer. But as our online product offerings grow, I had to bring on a team of highly talented individuals to help maintain the level of quality that my products were known now know for by our clients.

Ester: As a business person too, I think that “it is not shame to work hardly for making own legal business and for getting profits from it, but it is a real shame to be lazy and to be envious to the successes of other people.” What do you think about my point of view?

James: I think that having the mentality of “ If he can do t, so can I” is a positive way to look at some else's success, because instead of just seeing that individuals success, look rather at the characteristics and strategy that got him that success , so maybe you too can ally some of those strategies in a way that applies to you and become success full too.

 

------------------------

 

Ester: And now an unexpected question for you: I have an old video from your old service where you were dancing with another people into, and I can say that you are a great dancer. It was impressive! Did you go to Dancing school? :)

James: I actually did not go to dancing school , but I do love music, and I learnt how to dance while I was a party DJ in the university.

------------------------


Ester: In the old videos I have seen you with very beautiful Afro-American woman and I am sure that she is your wife. :) Can you tell us your “love-story”? Surely, if it is not a secret… So, how did you get this amazing beauty for yourself? :)

James: I am not married yet, and the very beautiful Afro-American woman was my then girlfriend who wanted to feature with me in that video shoot. It was a fun experience and we all loved it.

 

------------------------

 

Ester: And in the end of talking: do you like to do your business? Is the matter only in money and getting profits?

James: I love what I do and feel people should strive to do what they love, even before considering that financial gains. As they say around here “ If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life.” . Money is good, but doing what you love and making money is far better.
