Artin Nazarian‘s story is an immigrant story. As a Christian minority family in war-torn Iran, his parents decided it best to move somewhere that could give Artin and his sister better opportunities. At 10 years old, Artin and his family immigrated to the United States with Madrid as a point of transition. In Madrid, Artin and his family lived as refugees, residing in temporary housing and relying on government aid. Asking his parents for money was not an option. Thus, ensued Artin’s first taste of entrepreneurship – selling hand-drawn art to other students at his elementary school. Once eligible, his family moved to Los Angeles, California. Life in L.A. strengthened his interest in the arts and eventually inspired Artin to pursue filmmaking. After film school, he landed at Walt Disney Studios where he rose through the ranks, becoming an executive before the age of 30.
Throughout his time at Disney, Artin has contributed to the launch of Disney+, assisted the integration of the $71 billion acquisition of Twentieth Century Fox, and worked on legendary brands include Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar. Alongside these accomplishments, Artin has continued to fuel his passion for entrepreneurship. Learning from both failed and successful ventures, he has raised over $4 million to build software products and launch tech startups. In addition to these professional pursuits, he has welcomed the titles of husband and father. Artin’s humble beginnings and journey to becoming an executive of one of the world’s most beloved companies and founder of his own has fostered a deeper understanding of fulfillment and happiness. Leveraging his corporate success to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams has enabled him to clarify his passion and purpose.
These lessons fuel Artin’s desire to help others on similar paths by sharing his story as an author. His story embodies his belief that everyone is just one idea away from happiness.
