Salah satu nara sumber dalam workshop Creative Entrepreneur di acara peluncuran “Bali Creative Entrepreneur Forum” hari Sabtu 25 Juli 2009 adalah Popo Danes. Sosok periang dengan kekhasan ‘rambut putih asli” ini adalah seorang arsitek yang kini lewat karyanya berhasil membawa biro arsitek yang dimilikinya “Popo Danes Architect” memiliki klien di beberapa negara.

Memulai kariernya sebagai arsitek bahkan sangat unik, terinspirasi oleh karya dan pekerjaan ayahnya yang banyak membangun rumah serta gedung di Denpasar pada era 60 dan 70-an, bahkan ia sudah mendesain arsitektur rumahnya sebelum menjadi arsitek.

Kini Ia adalah seseorang yang patut digali resep suksesnya. Menjadi seorang arsitek dengan perusahaan sendiri, mendapat klien di berbagai negara, mendapat award atas karyanya, memperoleh publisitas media, dan dapat berbagi dalam guest lecture atau seminar.

Ketika didaulat menjadi nara sumber pada workshop ini langsung meresponnya dengan positip dan dalam obrolan santai dengannya begitu cair dan inspiratif, bahkan gayanya yang “konyol” muncul dalam dialog-dialognya. Berikut dari obrolan bersamanya :

Tanya :
Kapan pertamakali mendapat uang dari hasil kerja sendiri ?
PD :
Di saat berumur 22 tahun. Uang itu dibelikan uang kepeng bolong 1000 keping di pasar Klungkung, sampai sekarang masih utuh, sisanya dipakai buka rekening di bank Duta, simply, supaya bisa punya buku cheque. Jadi waktu itu rasanya gimanaaa…. gitu, bayar sesuatu pakai cheque, serasa sudah menyamai almarhum bapak. Kalau sekarang inget-inget itu jadi geli sendiri, plus sadar kalau phase-phase “norak” itu selalu ada, makanya sekarang bisa memaklumi para junior yang suka “norak”, hua ha ha ha ha …..

Tanya :
Bagaimana peluang anak muda sekarang untuk jadi creative entrepreneur ?
PD :
Anak sekarang peluangnya besar banget in this borderless world dan unlimited creativity. Cuman perlu extra gigih dan disiplin pasti bisa, sayangnya mereka suka kacau dalam kedua hal itu.
Yang konyol lagi, banyak diantara mereka yang cita-citanya cuman sebatas jadi follower saja. Kalau saya kan PD, Popo Danes maksudnya, he he he …

Dalam soal ini yang suka diabaikan anak muda ya soal disiplin itu. Mereka sering masih dirasuki paradigma kakek neneknya kalau pekerja kreatif (artis/seniman) itu nggak disiplin soal waktu, urakan, dsb. Padahal pekerja kreatif itu harus punctual & reliable kayak saya, tanpa harus begadang dan ngerokok, hi hi hi hi …..

Tanya :
Apa suka duka jadi seorang creative entrepreneur ?
PD:
Sukanya banyak, antara lain kalau berteman atau dalam networking tampil dengan identity kita sendiri, apalagi kalau bisa appreciate karya atau prestasi orang lain, pekerja kreatif lain akan mudah mendekat, dan kita bisa banyak creative sharing, padahal kita yang banyak belajar dari mereka, jadi efisien gitu, he he ….. Habis itu karena urusan kita kreatif, kita lebih punya alasan ke client untuk dapet privilege seperti makan di tempat yang suasananya lebih asyik, tidur di hotel yang unique, dan terbang naik business class supaya leluasa menggambar, ha ha ha …..
Dukanya nggak mau dipikirin ah……

Tanya :
Ada motto pribadi yang memotivasi perjalanan selama ini ?
PD :
Kegagalan adalah sukses yang tidak terjadi, ya gagal saja, titik. Artinya harus mulai lagi dengan scheme yang baru.
Anjing menggonggong karena menggonggong, itu memang perilaku anjing. Saya sih menggambar dan mikirin ide ide baru……

Ingin terinspirasi dengan stylenya yang casual dan easy going ini ? Ikuti workshop Creative Entrepreneur dimana Popo Danes menjadi salah seorang nara sumber yang akan membagi cerita dan pengalaman nyata sebagai seorang creative entrepreneur dalam tema “Creative Entrepreneur Behaviour”.
