Member Spotlight – Cody Cole Brown
Flexible workspaces are popping everywhere but Venture X's coworking spaces offer businesses amenities unlike any other. When a new business is getting off the ground, Venture X offers a budget-friendly home for businesses across countless industries. Cody Cole Brown, a member at Venture X West Palm Beach - CityPlace, is the Owner of Cole's Media Company, a full-service Marketing Agency that specializes in the equestrian industry and luxury brands. We spent some time getting to know Cody and his company.
We asked Cody some quick Q & As to get to know him and learn about his career journey. Here's what he had to say:
What made you want to get involved in this line of work?
While working for a marketing firm out of Tampa, I developed a love for the equestrian sport of show jumping. With learning about all the many equestrian disciplines, I noticed a lack in marketing professionals who specialized in the sport.
What has been the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The most rewarding aspect of my job would have to be the amazing places it takes me. I'm based in Florida during the winter months and then travel all over the world during the summer to different horse shows.
What's the biggest challenge that you have faced in business and how did you overcome it?
The biggest challenge I have faced in business is my age. I'm a young business owner which understandably might concern clients at the start of a working relationship. I've overcome this by making my youth my strongest attribute. I don't claim to be an expert in anything. We live in a digital age where everything is constantly changing and if you can admit that and make it a priority every day to learn the newest and most innovative trends, you'll find success.
What business tips would you like to share with others?
Don't show people what they want, show them what they don't know they want yet.
What has been your favorite part about working at Venture X?
I've been a member for only a couple of weeks and so far, I have loved working here. Everyone is super nice and it's just a great working environment.
A Personal Look at Cody Cole Brown
While getting to know Cody a little better, we asked who or what had been his greatest inspiration and were pleased to hear him say "Watching businesses and people achieve their dreams and knowing that I played a small part in helping them." It's obvious that Cody wants to prove himself and is eager to do what it takes to help his clients find their success. He takes pride in his work and we feel that's a quality that will get him very far.
Cody admits that he's an old soul and that in his spare time, we'd most likely find him reading the Wall Street Journal or listening to music from his vinyl record collection. We also learned that he's from a small German town in Michigan that is famous for celebrating Christmas 365 days a year. Now, that sounds jolly to us!
