MOVERS and SHAKERS Interview with Rom Raviv



MOVERS and SHAKERS Interview with Rom Raviv

Tell us your name and a little about yourself.

My name is Rom Raviv. I am an 18-year-old entrepreneur from Long Island, New York. About to be a college sophomore at Baruch College


What exactly does your company do?

I currently have a top 50 marketing podcast (top 200 all categories) called the Spreading Success podcast that was created to help people find their path to success in whatever they do through the lens of high performers in various industries. I also coach people on podcasting as well as developing a personal brand on social platforms such as Instagram and YouTube.


What were the biggest challenges you have faced and how did you overcome them?

The biggest challenge I would say would be facing my fears of reaching out to and recording episodes with 6,7 and even 8 figure earners in the beginning. I was so afraid of messing up or technical difficulties but I later realized that we are all humans and mistakes are bound to happen.


What piece of advice do you wish someone had given you at the start of your career?

To start as early as possible. I’m only 18 getting started with podcasting and other business ventures and many people wish they started at my age. In addition, I would also say to not be afraid to ask for help because without other mentors and fellow podcasters, I would be in a very different stage in my growth and development.


Who are your biggest influences and people you admire and why?

When I first started using social media, Gary Vee was one of the first people I followed and became a huge inspiration going forward, showing me that there is a way other than the traditional 9-5

In addition, Casey Adams showed me the true power of podcasting as a leveraging vehicle that is so underrated in today’s entrepreneurial society.


None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are?

100% without a doubt it would be Apple Crider, a top 100 business podcaster who not only showed me the ropes of podcasting but also for work ethic as well as different business ventures


What do you see as your greatest success in life?

As I am only 18 and just getting started, I don’t have many successes but for me, the thing that stands out is reaching the top 200 for all podcasts on iTunes
