Interview with Ario Torkashvand (@aryo_torkashvand)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

This is a good question my dad as an well known entrepreneur in Iran and one of the biggest businessman in Middle East was always the person that I learned a lot of things from him and my goal always was to be someone as successful as him so I started to start this career path and his blessed me and now I’m Ario Torkashvand the well know name in Houston and Dubai and Iran.

Can you share the most interest in exciting happened to you since you started doing this?

The first 1 2 year of doing this was a little bit difficult and it was so much stressing as you guys know of my llc and works that I do is about marble and the marble mines that I own in iran so I had a big contract with a Chinese manufacture for the stones and I used to give them the stone and they would do it as a slab and sell so one day I decided to do my biggest risk In my life till that day and I opened my own factory for manufacturing the stone and selling it by my own at first I didn’t sleep nights and nights but later when k see the success I was so happy and one thing that I will advise to everyone is that you should take risks but with thinking about it because no risk there is no success.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

The biggest tip that I would tell them is that they should work not too much and they need to live their life and party and have fun so one of the things that people would here from me a lot is the phrase work hard play harder and that’s my personal thing that I success in my bussinesss and personal life.

None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

My dad personally helped me a lot to elevate to this person that I am in this days he had lend me a good amount of money to start my bussiness he had helped me with his connection and the lost important he teaches me how to do bussiness and how to succeed. Once I remember I had a big project of building a man made island and I was so stressed out sleeping 2 3 hour only in a night when my dad saw that I’m burning out my self he sent me to a 7 day vacation and took care of that for 7 days and when I came back as he is really well known and has a lot of connection everything was settled and I really appreciate him for everything that I have

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

This is the first time that I am talking about this because personally I believe if I do something for making this world a better place it’s not something to shown off with and it’s something private but because you asking and I want to respect your question I will just tell a little bit about it such as donating to organizations or building couple schools and etc

Do you have a favorite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

Personally my life lesson quote is that don’t let it get to late you can party have fun and everything anytime but this time that you are wasting now the energy that you are losing is not gonna come back to you later in your life as you get older and so move on and make your dreams to happen and don’t care what people are telling you you can do it first that I got to this bussiness a lot of people told me you are new to this bussiness you are young you will lose all your money and leave this bussiness all these people are in this business for many years but now they All look at me from the down side and I’m the star of the show and the start of the bussiness
