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

Hi David, alright, let’s jump in with a deep one – what’s you’re definition for success?
I define it as, freedom, and inner happiness. To be able to exercise true success you need to have the freedom to do so. Free in all aspect of your life, financially, mentally and emotionally. Letting go of guilt and pain and understanding that they are what brings us closer to success. You also need to understand yourself enough to know where your true happiness comes from. If your happiness can be influenced by an external force then what ever path you are on is not true happiness. You need to find and grow that.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My business is Moneta De Sine a film production company with an emphasis in storytelling. We specialize in marketing, branding and social media videography. We have a background in narrative filmmaking which means we aren’t your typical content creators, we prioritize creative story telling as a tool to sell products and services. As owner and director for the majority of the projects we have I am super proud of the expectations we surpass when we finish a project. People are not expecting us to create something so polished. We often get told that our videos look like it comes from a big corporate brand. However, this process has not been easy. This industry at our level has been about competition. When I believe the answer is community over competition. We hope one day to be able to provide that to the community and be a hub for creatives to net work and grow.

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?
First I would say to definitely check out Icon Itinerary they can set you up with a great list of things to do. I like to be out in nature so I would recommend going up to sedona, flagstaff. Next I would definitely invite them to an event hosted by AZ entrepreneurs and introduce them to one of my great friends Devin Butler. Personally I don’t get to go out to much since I live the dad life.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My family. Starting with my parents for showing me that anything is possible. I’ve been fortunate to be born with the rights parents for me, because there is no perfect parent. However, the attention and love I was given I was able to pass on not only to my own kids and wife but to everything I do today.
