Interview with Peter Panos @peterxpanos
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I have always been fascinated with the world of pop culture and celebrities. I remember watching So in 2008, two of my best friends got together and put together and decided to go after our dreams and start our website.
After a few weeks of brainstorming, we came up with our first website Dean-Kelly.Com. With social media still being new, we decided to jump in headfirst. We bought some Flip Cams and reached out to every single celebrity we could think of, and sat down with any stars that would let us interview them. Sure, we didn’t know what we were doing, but we did know one thing: we wanted to create our content with real fans interviewing their favourite celebrities. And just like that, that spark of creativity turned our dreams into a reality.
Today, Dean-Kelly has blossomed into Ginger posh: a fashion and lifestyle website that will satisfy your thirst for all things pop culture, fashion, and beauty.
Can you share the most interest in what exciting happened to you since you started doing this?
After joining this, the most exciting thing for me was speaking with several celebrities, including Grammy Award-winning singer Ashanti, who discusses female work in the music world, Elli Kokkinou, a Greek star, Deborah Cox, and Jason Derulo, and many other celebrities.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
If you are doing what you love to do, you should never “burn out.” I believe that life is too short to do something you don’t love, so if you don’t love it, don’t do it. And for those that are just starting on their road to success.
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a person you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My friends and family members help me be what I’m right now. I want to thank all my friends and family who have sent me the sweetest messages of encouragement during all of my success and hard times.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I try to bring goodness to the world by spreading a positive message through my social media. I always try to be positive in every matter of life, which I told my fans to do.
Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“The happier you are, the more beautiful you become.” This quote motivates me to be happy every time in every moment of life, and I try to spread happiness to the world.
