Donavon Urfalian is an A.I. Engineer, Entrepreneur, and the Founder and CEO of Umazed Corporation. He recruits and builds his team by using his talents to transform the social media space to something profound, such as giving people the opportunity to use a social platform that helps build character through insights and goal accomplishments.
How did you come up with the idea for Umazed? What problem were you trying to solve?
I came up with the idea for Umazed out of my desire for personal development. I wanted to understand myself and be understood by others. I try to solve the problem of quantifying personal development by focusing on getting correct insights and accomplishing worthwhile goals.
How do getting insights and taking action through Umazed able to build the character of your prospect users?
The assumption is that the key to unlocking your mind is to focus on getting correct insights and reflecting on your future goals, that is, figuring out the right thing to do for the right reason.
Umazed is a social platform that makes it possible for people to crowdsource and broadcast insights and goals. It is the attempt to take social media to new heights by sharing and curating content that helps add value to people’s lives.
Umazed is a software where people can organize their thinking, make sense of their emotions, and create a to-do-list and calendar of their future goals. All of these things help build a solid framework of meanings and values in terms of acquiring good character traits in specific points of time that will help contribute to an overall solid character.
How do you foster creative and innovative thinking within your organization? How are ideas shared and implemented within your teams?
I foster creative and innovative thinking within Umazed Corporation by being attentive and focused on the users’ needs, as well as considering the feedback that we receive whilst verifying them with our own experiences. We share ideas by having open and honest team meetings. We also implement our decisions with a timeline and milestones that we agree with before taking actions. We measure, track, and then hold everyone accountable.
Knowing that the competition is tough within the social media marketing space, what makes your platform unique and worthy of attention?
We compete by doing things that have never been done before. We transform the existing market into something new and therefore, we have the first mover advantage.
For example, we focus on worthwhile activities that add tremendous value in return to our user’s investment. We make it easier and faster for people to get correct insights, understand themselves, be understood by others, and figure out what course of action to take, in order to build their respective characters. This is a lot different than the current superficial and shallow state of affairs on social media. It is blue ocean strategy in a bloody red ocean of sameness.
What are new innovations in social media that you have seen recently that excite you the most? Why?
The innovations in social media that excite me are the ones that my team and I are creating. If you consider vomiting a virtual rainbow, or eating a virtual carrot, or making text, images, or video disappear, or seeing a random spam timeline of disconnected information that you have no control over as innovation, then I would say it is a sad state of affairs. This is not innovation, it is gimmicky, a waste of time, and dumbs people down.
My notion of innovation is that we give people the ability to share insights and accomplish goals on our platform. The reason why I’m excited about Umazed is because it takes the shallow and superficial use of social media and turns it into something that adds tremendous value to people’s lives by making it easier for people to understand and be understood, to organize their thinking, make sense of their emotions, and build their character.
Statistics shows that most people spend an average of 2 hrs per day just on social media alone. What message would you like to give to these people?
I am one of these people. I feel that social media is a waste of my time and it dumbs me down.
My message to people is an open invitation to join the Umazed community of users, where we value your time, and provide a huge return to your investment by making it easier for you to discover your mind, train and organize your thinking, and grow as a human being with a social platform that makes personal development possible.
Umazed is a social platform that helps build the user’s character by getting insights and taking action. Umazed provides the tools to empower people to create waking dreams, insights, goals, actions, and develop character in order to embody the meanings and values of a happy life.
