Remiah Trask - Ep: 14

Hey, I'm Remiah Trask, the CEO of Design Baton Rouge, an award-winning web design & marketing agency in Louisiana. I am also an Amazon best selling author with my book "You Can Build A Freaking Amazing Website, even if you have zero creative ability".

 

I come from a long lineage of entrepreneurs. Both of my grandfathers, as well as my grandmother, were entrepreneurs. Consequently, my mom and dad are also entrepreneurs. Needless to say, I was basically destined for entrepreneurship.

 

I straight up slipped into the creative world on accident. A friend of mine needed a website built for his wife’s organization; since I had taken a few college courses that required me to build websites, I decided to give it a shot. Shortly after, my wife convinced me that I was pretty good and that maybe I could make a business out of it. I put together a $300 web design package and went out “door to door” selling and I closed two deals on the first day. I have not looked back since!!

In 2010, I officially *launched* a Web Design & Marketing Agency, Design Baton Rouge, and began consistently growing the business and expanding our services. I now have a passion to help *other* entrepreneurs to start, brand, grow, and LOVE their businesses by applying the exact formula that I used.
