Interview with Fardad Kaviany (@fardadkaviany)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I start working in production when I was 17 years old, that time also I launch the first-ever advertising magazine when satellite tv starts. I had more work to do after while I became the Regional Manager of one international tv then 2 years later COO, I had a passion for music and fashion then I decide to launch a music television so in 2009 I launched my music television right after I launch FashionTV MENA.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

When I was 15 I start working in friends sound system shop then I realised most of the people loves music but has no clue about new music or name of the artist so I start selling CD to some Vip clients, with small conversations I could find out what genre of music they like so I was giving them a pack of music CD over price, intreating part was they were coming to me weekly basis, that time cell phone, and SIM cards was super Luxury and very expensive almost price of the car but I had a cell phone by my own money and I was wearing latest boot from Dr.Martin which was very woooow that time also I was eating in best restaurant acting like I’m 25 successful men. haha 

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

My only suggestion is to stay calm I’ve been through too much stress for no reason that cost me 2 cancers back to back managing my own company and keeping the business up was kind of impossible but with passion, you can do anything trust the time and never sacrifice your name that’s all you got.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

Many people have been in my life that teaches me a lot, in general, I know I have to learn, for example, I believe if you wanna know about the economy of the city I should use taxi so I’m chatting with taxi drivers mostly and even from them, I learn a lot from the where I’m living but usually I hang out with a mix of people and listening to their stories and when I wanna do something new I ask few different people to reach the best. 

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

That’s what I always do, all my project is for a better world and better people that’s all I care, there is some project that I can’t mention but they are to do good things, I always love people after my cancer I realise how much more I love them so I do anything for them.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

You got to lose to know how to win.
