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

Hi Siraaj, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
The most important lesson that I’ve learned in business is to always stay even keel. Never get too high and low on success and failures, especially in the beginning. Because when you’re first starting out, you may not be making the amount of money that you want to, and have to spend long hours working on your business with no return in sight. You must translate that same attitude even when your business does start making money. Having the same attitude when things are going good and bad will help with staying consistent for the long term because entrepreneurship can be such a roller coaster, not just in business but emotionally as well.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
SWCreatives (SWC) is a result driven social media marketing agency located in Baltimore, Maryland. SWC was established with the ultimate goal of helping businesses stand out online with our services that provide high quality digital content for small businesses. We understand how frustrating and time consuming it can trying to create high-quality content while balancing the demands of running a successful operation. That’s why SWC was created, to allow your business to engage with your target audience on social media while being able to focus on what’s important, running your business.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’ve got a couple of spots that I love visiting when I’m in Houston. For food I recommend Kiss Houston, Prey, Turkey Leg Hut (best turkey leg in the city), and Steak48. If you want to go out for a good time, my favorite places to kick it are The Address, Kamp, Le Meridian Houston (Rooftop Bar on Floor 23), and Chapman (Go on Sunday). If you want to go shopping checkout The Galleria.
