Interview with Cambodia Entrepreneur and Social Media Guru Chansanith Um

Cambodia Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurs are a different breed. They are thrill-seeking and risk-taking human beings.

They are different.

Most importantly, they are hustlers. They pounce on opportunities, learn from their mistakes. They keep going regardless of the obstacles.

Aspiring digital marketer Chansanith Um, based in Cambodia is one such hustler. At 25, he is taking the digital marketing industry by storm.

Today the world is trending towards digital. Everyone wants in on the digital revolution. Chansanith was revolutionary in the digital industry.

He was one of the first to the industry and was able to emerge as a top digital marketer in the country.

We had the fortune of speaking to Chansanith to discover more about being the youngest digital marketing entrepreneur in Cambodia.

Q: Tell us how it all started?

A: I was always an entrepreneur from my high school days. I started as a digital marketer while I was still studying. During that time, social media was just getting started. I helped out a lot of companies to establish their campaigns on Facebook.

That was the start!

Q: Where are you from?

 A: I was born and raised in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. I lived in a simple life with a happy family. Also, I graduated at Life University in Cambodia.

 Q: How did you grow to become a full-time entrepreneur?

A: While I was studying at Life University, I was already working with a few companies on their digital campaigns. I started to learn on the job and acquire new skills. Soon after my university qualification, I decided that I will do this for a living.

That didn’t mean I stopped learning.

I continued to learn and acquire new skills. That’s how I became proficient in areas like SEO and web development.

I now operate and manage a portfolio of brands and clients working worldwide.

Q: What are the obstacles that came in your way?

A: At the start, nobody saw the potential for digital marketing. It was a challenge for me when I got started. I took a risk and went through with it. I was one of the first to bring in the digital change in Cambodia.

Nobody believed in digital too much. Businesses didn’t think there was potential in it.

But I didn’t stop what I was doing. Now, everyone wants to use social media for their business. I am happy to serve all these clients.

Looking back, I am glad that I took the risk.

Q: Tell us about a few accomplishments down the line?

A: Over the years, I was able to build a massive following behind me. I manage 20+ successful Facebook pages. My most popular page has a following of 1.6 million.

Also, I have provided my services to about 200+ businesses for their digital campaigns.

What I feel is my biggest accomplishment as a Digitial Marketer is that the companies that I built from scratch when I was starting.

They are now high revenue-generating businesses thanks to the digital initiative.

Q: How did you handle failure?

A: Entrepreneurs will always have failures in their path to success. They are normal. There were occasions where nothing went to plan.

I felt disappointed and demotivated. But, even today I will tell that it was the best thing that happened to me.

I learned where I went wrong, making sure I made sure I don’t let it happen again.

If you think about it and keep worrying, nothing is going to work right. You’ll end up burning out.

It’s best to carry yourself on to the next!

Q: What is your long term plan?

A: In this short time, I achieved several goals in my entrepreneur life. But I know there is a lot more for me to accomplish. The digital world is changing. For my long term plan, I also need to change.

My goal is to expand my services worldwide and take my firm to become one of the top 5 digital marketing firms in the world.

I know it’s a tough challenge, but I am willing to give my 200% to achieve this!

Q: Any advice to someone willing to take on an entrepreneur journey?

A: Firstly, stop telling people about your idea and start taking action. Most of us, especially millennials keep talking about ideas and never put them to work.

Entrepreneurs are people who do the work. 

If you want to become an entrepreneur, make sure you commit to free up time in your schedule.

To be successful an entrepreneur might have to sacrifice a few parties and cut down on your Netflix time.

If you follow these two bits of advice to get started, you will automatically get the entrepreneurial spirit inside you.

Q: Where can we keep up with your daily activities?


Wizdakidd (born Joseph T. Gordon Jr. in 1998) started producing his freshman year in college at Jackson State University




Wizdakidd (born Joseph T. Gordon Jr. in 1998)

Raised by his grandparents in Clarksdale, Mississippi, Wizdakidd (born Joseph T. Gordon Jr. in 1998) started producing his freshman year in college at Jackson State University, producing tracks for his early mixtapes in his dorm room. After a flurry of increasingly strong beat mixtapes (most notably 2019’s Thee Loaner), Wiz made his major-label leap with 2019’s Operation Wizod. After starting his own label from the ground up (WDK Records) He kicked off early 2020 with a string of similar beat tapes (Tau Upsilon Phi, Thee First Take, Thee Loner, Stringz) that continued to chart his sound, featuring collaborations with nemraps and many more. Sometimes Aggressive yet sometimes soulful, Wiz’s Beats feels like a natural step in the evolution of southern hip-hop beats, echoing both Tay Keith and Zaytoven as well as Turbo and other Southern producers, here’s some questions& answers from his recent interview.

1.What’s your background?

“ I grew up in Clarksdale, ms, a really small town. The top of the town was everybody knows each other, I wasn’t popular or anything like that I really was a bipolar loner who had a few friends, none of my friends knew I had mental issues because I’ve all ways kelp it is hidden from them because I thought they wouldn’t be cool with me if they found out, It wasn’t until recently I finally accept the fact that’s just who I am

2.Who are your biggest influences?

Young Thug, that’s my guy, Drake is my favorite artist but young thug is my guy because he just doesn’t care, most ppl say he weird but I think he’s the goat. and a lot of these new rappers need to be honest about their influences because they really are clones with their minor edits. no cap.

3.How do you price your work?

All of my beats are free because I feel like its a lot of artists out there who can’t afford quality beats so I try my best to help as many artists as I can, most ppl wouldn’t do that, some say I’m crazy and it makes my beats have less value my response is my beats are still free because no one has exclusive rights but me unless I send over the paperwork until then anybody can use them

4.How do you navigate the art world?

I just do me, bro, sometimes I don’t want to talk, sometimes I do, sometimes I want to help, sometimes I don’t, I sleep a lot because I feel like I wake up different people every single time. So if something bad happens I sleep it off and wake up with an “ ok cool what’s the next move” type of mindset.

Interview with the talented artist, The Velvet Bug




The Velvet Bug

Just as free and powerful as flight, The Velvet Bug is a talented mature artist who believes in freedom of thought and freedom to live life as per one’s own will. His music is liberating and inspiring, the kind that makes you want to break all the barriers and regain control. With his hard work, dedication, and passion for creating music that is out of the box, The Velvet Bug is rapidly paving his way through the music industry. His latest album “Seven Suns” is an epitome of his innate music-making passion that is a surprising twist on modern life. A modern rock album with 11 euphonious songs, “Seven Suns” is receiving massive reception from fans across the globe. 

Interviewer: You have an intriguing stage name. What is the story behind it?

The Velvet Bug: I am The Velvet Bug… a being (much like a bee) with special powers and protections, who travels anywhere and everywhere in search of an escape. Now when I say escape, I mean the True Escape… one from our world of limitation and deception. An escape from the simulacrum we are living in. The bubble.This Dream.

Interviewer: What inspired you to pursue music?

The Velvet Bug: When I was a little boy, I would listen to music and feel I was in another world… that the world was a great big friendly place full of good intentions. Every song I heard, every time the radio was playing a hit, it opened up a part of me that I did not know I had before. Then, as I matured, music became a language I loved and just had to sing. Love was always the biggest theme in music and how relationships would work or fail was nearly always part of the story.

Interviewer: How would you describe your music style to our readers?

The Velvet Bug: My musical style is varied and hopeful. I always have an escape route built into every song. My base is Rock… the kind of rock that lets you float on a cloud or dematerialize into space. Then there’s the Blues… the kind that puts your feet right back on the ground and reminds you of whom and where you “really” are.

Interviewer: Tell our readers about your latest album “Seven Suns”

The Velvet Bug: With my first song in the album, Hologram from Mars, I set the tone on how I left earth (and my dear mother) and discovered our progenitors on Mars. With the song, Seven Suns (She’s a Hunter), I discover a legendary angelic being with godly powers from Seven Suns, a planet surrounded by seven glorious stars in the seventh dimension and whose sole purpose in life is the protection of the young and innocent. Funny thing is, the angelic beings love to dance to Rock.

The song, Entropy, is an escape out of the simulacrum completely. Escape from the chaos and disintegration we all will achieve. Escape from the dream that has been dreamt for us and our loved ones.

Interviewer: Where do you see yourself in your musical journey in the next few years?

The Velvet Bug: I want to fly. .. fly without any restrictions and burdens. The weight of the world is a heavy one and one that we construct for ourselves. If we are so burdened, we can’t lift off and see our world from a different perspective. Breaking free is the beginning of any journey and music is the soundtrack.
