We had the good fortune of connecting with Del Ro and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Del, can you tell us about an impactful book you’ve read and why you liked it or what impact it had on you?
I read a book entitled “Pitch Anything” by Oren Klaff; which changed my perspective on pitches and how to present potential partnerships, deal and sponsorships. I like this book because it breaks down the various “frames” that people face while pitching concepts, products and deals. This book has impacted my outlook on how to deliver pitches; moreover it has broadened my outlook on ways to strategize a pitch. Reading “Pitch Anything” has increased the efficiency of the deals that I close. The book’s insights have allowed me to diversify the styles of pitches and deal types that I have secured.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
The most important factor that has influenced my current position business-wise and the success of my brand is the consistent work ethic. I am a true workaholic! I enjoy what I do and oftentimes, it does not feel like work at all. It is natural for me to work late nights on a weekend; I find peace in doing so. Many people do not understand the groundwork that goes into the successes of my business as well as my brand.

Consistency is so key and involves not being easily discouraged. In entertainment you must have resolve, grit and mental toughness to be successful and last. I have been able to maintain a consistency over time that has allowed me to gradually elevate the level of my work and overall success of my brand.

Not many aspects of my journey have been easy. From the outside looking in, I believe that many people assume that the entertainment World is all fun and games.
I reached my current level of work in my industry by being diligent and blocking out what people said isn’t going to work. It has been far from easy but the journey has been well worth it. Constantly overcoming challenges and building something worthwhile with a team is gratifying; adding value to others and entities is an excellent feeling.

I have learned many lessons along the way, one of the main lessons is the power of trusting your gut. It is truly a feeling that you shouldn’t ignore as it pertains to operating your business. I have also learned the significance in setting frames and avoiding time wasters. To achieve and elevate yourself and your business, you must avoid as many pitfalls as possible while continuously taking risks. One way to avoid pitfalls is to steer clear of individuals and entities that seem to be time wasters; being an entrepreneur means that you don’t have typical work hours, your time is extremely valuable to you.

I want the World to know that I’ve done things the right way and successes did not come overnight. My brand is still building, there are things that we are just beginning to build out and create, we are excited.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
First I would advise that they arrive on Thursday morning or afternoon. We would begin by heading to the beach lunch at the Standard followed by vibes at Soho Beach House or the Eden Roc. Secondly we would head to Grails and Spanglish for dinner and following head over to Mr. Jones.

Friday morning we would head to Flex Appeal to get a Miami centric workout in. After working up an appetite, head over to the French Bakery for breakfast. As the day proceeds, we would gear up for a couple of happy hours, first Monty’s in Coconut Grove and secondly the Sylvester. Friday night would consist of heading to the No. 3 Social rooftop and stopping by bars throughout the Wynwood and the Beach such as Bodega.

Saturday would be an active day, we would start the day out at Brunch at Yardbird then head over to the Design Destrict and hit some spots throughout Wynwood. Following, we would head up to Los Perros aqui to have lunch. Afterwards we would head to Doral and stop by a couple spots before grabbing drinks at Kuba. At night we would hit a few places including The Basement and Komodo.

Sunday would be all about the brunch vibes, we would head to Rusty Pelican or Victory. The day would be filled with stops a la playa and Aventura.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my parents and their businesses Recapturing the Vision and VDR enterprises. In addition, I’d like to dedicate this shoutout to my team, KB Barber – our Creative Director, Xxay Robertson – our head of content and my manager and one of the best photographers in the country, Richard Lecoin. Without my team, some of the dreams that have been lived out wouldn’t have been possible.
