Joshua Norris is a Future Shark who is disrupting the design world!
Josh is an entrepreneur, graphic designer, and animator based in Atlanta. He is most notably known for his content agency JN Digital which creates content for multiple different influencers and businesses including Michael Blakey, David Meltzer, Pets Project, Wake, and many others.
JN Digital is a content agency he started because he realized the importance of having a unique online presence in the current era we live in. Every day someone is starting a business and needs help in turning their idea into a reality. This is the reason why he created his agency, to bridge the gap between the impossible. “Without a solid foundation like logos, content, unique websites, etc. it is just an idea and what good is an idea without action!”
Josh landed his first client when he was 16 years old, doing work for local artists in the city of Augusta. As time went on, Josh managed to get in contact with multiple artists including Lil Yachty, SkippaDaFlippa, Hoodrich Pablo Juan, and many others. This was the foundation of turning his passion into a career. Within a year, Josh learned how to film and shoot photography adding on to his already extensive talents. He used these new skills and social media to leverage his work to land more deals and clients by shooting music videos, commercials, highlight reels, and much more.
Not only is Josh generating wealth for himself, but he also generates income for others as well. His content agency JN Digital has multiple employees that help him with the assignments that he is given from his clients. This is a huge factor in his success by giving others the opportunity to follow their dreams and turn them into a source of income. He also teaches people how to use social media and graphic design to have an extra source of income. He does this by his course 6-Figure Graphics as well as by one on one mentorship where students can spend several hours with him learning the ropes on how to find the right client, how to get potential clients interested and willing to pay for your services, and most importantly how to create the designs and animations.
Creating a successful business at a young age is very difficult. “You have to create a successful mindset whether it’s by reading, meditating or finding mentors, you need to find the techniques that work best for you and develop habits to form a consistent pattern to keep you on track.” To be able to keep this mindset, Josh sacrificed a lot of time throughout high school to focus on his business rather than spending time with close friends and family. He also used his funds to invest in his business like upgrading equipment, paid courses to learn new techniques, travel expenses for events, and many other things. These types of decisions are what led him to accomplish what most teens his age dream of doing.
