There are situations in life that make people get out of their comfort zone. This is often positive as it drives the person to create new ways to achieve success. Surely at first it will be scary, but it can be for the better.
Francisco Olivares is a businessman and entrepreneur who migrated from Venezuela to the United States in 2010 due to the situation he was experiencing in his country. He is the founder of MDT Promotions, an innovative event planning company.
While living in Venezuela, he became known in the world of nightlife by doing parties in Area Club and collaborating on other events in clubs like UEST and BABAR. But everything changed once he arrived in Miami.
Francisco had to adapt to a new way of life and started parking cars at the famous car dealer THE COLLECTION. A few years later he met some people who made him return to the nightlife.
That is when he started to work for the company MAG MIAMI where he worked for two years, and then opened his own company MDT Promotions. In time, MDT Promotions became part of I’M MIAMI PARTY.
“I love the night industry but I always knew there was something beyond that. I took it upon myself to make a name for myself and stand up well in front of all my people.” Francisco shares.
MDT Promotions handles logistics for all types of events in Miami. Their mission is the client, so they will do everything to create great unforgettable experiences, incredible moments and make the dreams of their clients come true.
MDT Promotions works from the conception of the idea through the materialization of that idea. No matter the type of event from a birthday to a concert or a wedding, they will make sure it is as the client dreamed it.
There are people who carry the fire of entrepreneurship from an early age and Francisco is no exception to that. His motivation has always been his search for a better quality of life not only for himself but also for his children.
“I have started several businesses in my life since I was 16 years old I work, and all this because since I was little I have always had a hunger for success and have wanted to be able to give my children everything they deserve. It is never too late to start another new project, I am a merchant and I believe in the importance of diversifying your business.” Francisco explains.
Besides this, Francisco also flips houses by investing in the real estate industry in the Florida area. He also runs a gambling site in Costa Rica, has three Amazon stores, and is becoming more and more interested in e-commerce and cryptocurrency.
“When starting your own business your mentality is the most important thing. You have to know the importance of the customer, your time in the business, the final product you are giving, and more. You have to do things in the best possible way. I am a true believer in the power of the mind. I think that whatever our mind wants, if we want it, the UNIVERSE will bring it to us.” Francisco states.
However, not everything has been rosy for Francisco. But sometimes experiences that seem negative are necessary to awaken or boost our projects forward.
“When I wanted to start my own promotion company and stop working for what was now my competition, the whole industry of nightlife turned against me. There was a moment where I practically thought I was going to lose everything, but on the contrary, this gave me more strength to achieve all my goals.” He shares.
Francisco’s next projects include opening a lounge restaurant and growing weed in Michigan. He is currently conditioning the property to use for this by the end of 2021.
“There is still a lot of Fran Miami in this city.” He claims.
