Matthew Calleja, Partner at boutique video production company Videocafe, took to social media to give his followers a glimpse into the reality of going on holiday whilst juggling a small business’ operations.
“Having a small business requires your time, energy, and attention all the time. It is very difficult to completely switch off,” Mr Calleja wrote.
“However, it has become a habit to wake up early in the morning and do some work when I’m on a holiday,” he continued.
Mr Calleja’s ethic seems to have already paid off, as since its foundation, Videocafe has worked with a plethora of local and international brands, including but not limited to Forestals, Red Bull, the European Commission, Misura, and Glitch.
“[Doing some work on holiday] enables me to keep up to date with what is happening back in Malta. It is also an opportunity to work on things I do not usually dedicate enough time to back home,” Mr Calleja said.
“Big thanks to my business partner, Adrian, who takes a bigger load of work when I’m away,” he concluded.
Mr Calleja has held his roles as Video Content Creator and Partner at Videocafe since November 2018.
Before joining this company, he worked as a Producer and Video Editor at Media.link Communications, as a Radio Presenter at Bay Radio, and as an Assistant Producer and Video Editor at Where’s Everybody, amongst other things.
