We had the good fortune of connecting with Donnell Goss and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Donnell, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
How can I find a way to create my own way. I was unhappy in my traditional 9-5 and I needed a change. Then January 2017 happened! I started to explore the things I was passionate about and there it was videography / editing photos and videos! It truly was an “ah ha” moment. I’ve been into video production since high school and decided to turn it into a passion! I haven’t turned back yet! 

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a videographer who specializes within the real estate market along with being a wedding videographer. I’ve done plenty of weddings with just me and /or a photographer but I have a wedding team that comprises of hair and makeup, photography, videography, and DJ so, we have you covered on a lot of fronts. With dealing with COVID restrictions, just like for everyone, it’s created challenges but I’m genuinely excited to explore this “new world” and accept the challenges I may face. For my story? A lot of hard work and sacrificing! Mainly Sacrificing time and money. To say the road to entrepreneurship has been an easy road would be the biggest lie known to man! I tell my daughter all the time that, just because you are following your dreams and do things you’re talented in, does not mean it will be an easy road. In fact, you’ll find yourself facing more challenges! But it’s all about the growth! It’s all about what we learn on the journey. 9 Vision Studios is such a blessing to me and I treat it as such. I’m very passionate about what I do. If I could tell a potential client why they should choose 9 Vision? It’ll be simple….do you want to work with someone who will LISTEN to your wants, creating a storyboard to bring you visions to life. Imagine working with a videographer that you can be yourself with? Priceless stuff! Passion and purpose are powerful words that simply define what 9 Vision Studios represents.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Red Rocks and bar hopping in RiNo are definite go to’s while friends visit Denver, Colorado. That’s just staying local though. To get a great Colorado experience, you’ll need a minimum of a week out here.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d love to shoutout my fiancé Lindsey Willardson. When starting something new, (especially when you’re in a relationship) it’s scary, vulnerable, and down right intimidating. It was her who was/is in my ear, pushing me to be great! Encouraging me every step of the way! For that? She deserves every shout out there is!
