We had the good fortune of connecting with Jarred Noah and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jarred, how do you think about risk?
“Taking risks is part of life, and just like you take risks in your personal life, you ultimately can’t grow or move forward until you do the same thing in business. I’ve taken all kinds of risks, from investing in new equipment to taking on business partners. The important thing is that if your risk results in an undesired outcome, that you learn from it and avoid repeating the same steps that lead you down that road twice. If you’re unrelenting and hungry, you’ll be successful in no time by applying that method.”
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
“I’ve been in the field for over 12 years now, and I’ve been lucky enough to travel to unique places, meet amazing people, and enjoy once in a lifetime experiences. It all stemmed from creating relationships with people who have a story to tell. I got to where I am professionally because of the amazing relationships I have and the genuine desire to bring out the best in others. I don’t think anything in life is easy, most of all a career in the arts, but I think it is one of the most rewarding. I’m at a crossroads in my professional career where I am beginning to fund my projects and venture into TV and film. To date, I’ve been completed over 500 productions, been published by dozens of media outlets, partnered with Apple as an educator, and accumulated nearly 50 million views on my projects. I’m very grateful and optimistic about the future.”
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
“In my neck of the woods, everyone frequents Delray Beach and Atlantic Avenue. There’s enough to eat, see, read, watch, and do here for a lifetime, let alone a week. It has something for everyone, whether you’re with family, friends, or on a date. If you’re spending some time down south, visit Las Olas Blvd in Fort Lauderdale, which will give you plenty to do. Some go-to spots are Prime Catch to eat on the water in Boynton Beach, Salt 7 and Cut 432 in Delray, Houston’s, Tom Sawyer’s, Sunset Sushi and Yogurt Emporium in Boca, Whales Rib and JB’s in Deerfield Beach, Il Mulino, The Foxy Brown and Big City Tavern in Ft. Lauderdale, and finally Ice Box, and Pubbelly Sushi in Miami Beach. That should be enough to get you started.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
“My father. As a parent, the slightest gesture, or suggestion, however simple, can spark a lifelong passion in your kid. When I was 6, my father handed me the Star Wars trilogy on VHS to stave off a little boredom, and after watching it, I was completely captivated by the story and the fantasy of the whole thing. I knew I wanted to be a part of something like that. Something that was bigger than me and told an amazing story that captured people’s imaginations. From then on, I’ve done everything and anything to work towards that goal. The rest is history.”
