Jeff Rodricks – Owner, JW Rodricks Architects

After gaining experience with a reputed architectural firm for almost 2 years, Jeff Rodricks, established his own business at the age of 24 years with a capital investment of 5 lac. He was a bright student and is the recipient of Gold Medal in architecture. Post completion of studies, when he started working, the work environment wasn’t conducive and pushed him further to improve his skills and work ethics for the current market. And without giving a second thought, at an early age of his career, he decided to take the plunge in the ocean of entrepreneurship. He courageously picked up few personal projects, survived those initial jolts and established his firm. It was his desire to have his own firm that played a major role in finding “JW Rodricks Architects”.

With rapid urbanisation and people’s increasing wish to have a dream cosy place, business has been on rise for Jeff. However, there has been some ups and downs in his venture. He candidly tells us,

“Architecture is a demanding profession and when you make it your business you have to give it your all. Balancing personal/social life & work is tedious, when your entire business is on word of mouth. Eventually focus gets shifted towards social events as much as possible, since it helps in getting new clientele.”

Jeff feels that willpower and a well set vision is most important in running your own business, while rest all eventually falls in place. Grabbing the right opportunity at the right time also plays a vital role in any business’ success. In real estate sector, opportunity was always there & he was lucky to cross the right client at the right time and things clicked for him.
