David Fichman was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1998. He had a relatively normal upbringing and was fortunate to attend one of the top schools in his State. However, as he went through the schooling years, David was always somewhat disconnected with the structure of the system and never quite felt as though his calling in life was to pursue the traditional avenues of success.
In this article we ask David Fichman a few questions about business.
What do you like most about your business right now?
I have always applied myself fully towards my business ventures. Whilst they have brought financial success, this is the first time I can honestly say that I have also found my purpose in life. What excites me most is the thought that I can love every moment of my work and make a significant change to the world, rather than just money.
How did you make a name for yourself in your industry?
I am the youngest owner of a company in my industry. I did this alone, and in short time. This was achieved by the relationship I have with my employees and in the work environment that we share with each other. Our company really works as a family unit, and the levels of trust that we have for each other has guaranteed our success.
If you were to start from nothing what would you do differently?
I would simply listen. All too often our ego clouds our judgement, as we proudly think to ourselves that we know better than those that have already walked the same path. If I had listened more, I would have found the answers that I needed to avoid all the pitfalls and mistakes I made along the way. These answers are surprisingly available. What is unsurprising, however, is the ego that prevents us from listening to them.
How does your business help others?
Our company operates much like our name suggests. We follow a disciplined, strict moral code to really deconstruct the issues of those who come to us for help. We believe this is most effective way to create profound change, but it requires a strict, clearly defined rubric of how to improve.
What exactly does your company do?
We help people that come to us with their social and psychological issues. However, this is not a traditional therapy session that aims to solve the particular issue that people present us with. Instead, we aim to deconstruct the cause, the seed of the problem, and allow our clients to make permanent changes with a more holistic understanding of their problem. We have individual consultations, create videos, and promote values that we feel encapsulate our message.
