Today we’d like to introduce you to Brooke Mason.
Brooke, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I grew up in Sydney, Australia and I think those roots keep me grounded, as grounded as one can be in this crazy city of Los Angeles. My passions in life revolve around being part of a creative team, making amazing projects for my clients and seeing their success grow. My success is their success! I’m an entrepreneur by heart and have started and run four of my own businesses. So starting Brooke Mason Creative was natural for me, I needed to supply more options to my clients and realized as a bigger team we can accomplish so much more.
Has it been a smooth road?
It’s a challenge for every entrepreneur starting out. Though I can’t speak for every woman, I can speak for myself and say being female has put another level on top of it all. We have the added boundary of not being seen as competent, professional and as intelligent as our male colleagues. Thank goodness it’s improved considerably, but I do run into it, and for some reason, I’m still taken back when it comes my way.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Brooke Mason Creative – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I am the CEO and founder of Brooke Mason Creative. We are a full-service boutique creative agency based in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. As a celebrity photographer, I had many clients that needed more services and we did offer them on the side, however, I made it all official 4yrs ago with Brooke Mason Creative and my wonderful creative team. Now we’ve done some incredible projects, successful campaigns and helped some amazing individuals and businesses. From small businesses starting out to larger scale operations and travel and tourism for local municipals.
It’s been an amazing journey so far and we have so many exciting projects this year on the horizon. One that is very exciting is a new company HUDDLEads.com – a more affordable way for people to succeed in business in this age of social media.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Los Angeles is a big city and it’s a tough one, it’s not for the faint-hearted. However, it is full of opportunity, so just as much as you will get knocked down there is something else around the corner. So yes, it’s a wonderful place to start a creative career. I do make it a point to tell interns and new entrepreneurs I work with to be sure not to burn any bridges. Be thoughtful and even when those opportunities don’t work out keep moving forward and keep strong within yourself. Plan to work with others you admire, be a sponge and learn everything you can. I believe in hard work, long hours and sticking to your goals and dreams to make them a reality!
