Michael Hefferon – President / Chief Creative Officer of Mainframe Studios
It’s the passion for creating that blazes the trail for business
Q. If you could give your past self some advice, what would you tell yourself?
Don’t listen to anyone. You only fail if you stop getting up and trying again.
Q. When you first started your career, how did you know you were ready and what made you start?
I realized the only person who is going to believe in me, is myself. I started off my career by founding my own studio, something only few had ever done, so I could only go up from there!
Q. Do you have a mantra or phrase you live by? What is it?
“How can I make that happen?” The glass is always half-full, I always look at all the reasons why I can do it.
Q. What is your number one priority when it comes to your career and daily work?
Find your happiness and build around it. Never feel like you are doing something for someone else.
Q. What keeps you motivated on a daily basis?
It is about finding ways to motivate yourself by setting short and attainable goals. Each time I make a small step, it motivates me to get to the next step, and eventually the long-term goal, like getting a show made.
