Roman Prokopchuk is a first-generation immigrant from Lviv, Ukraine. Roman founded Nova Zora Digital in 2012 a full-service digital marketing agency where he’s helped clients like Chef Robert Irvine’s FITCRUNCH reach success online through digital marketing.
Roman also started the Digital Savage Experience Podcast where he interviews industry leaders, athletes, authors, and anyone with motivational journeys to learn from their experiences.
Roman and his wife became foster parents in June 2018. Since then, they’ve had 9 foster kids in their home. Two of which were with us for a year which we thought we were going to adopt, but they ended up getting reunified with their biological mom.
I’ve had to deal with them leaving, and through the pain advocate for other kids in the system. My wife and I got into fostering because of an infertility journey. In the last 2 years, we’ve had 5 miscarriages and spend 80k out of pocket for all the medical procedures that insurance doesn’t cover.
I used to think just working hard was enough, but for the last few years have continuously put myself in uncomfortable situations like going skydiving even though I’m afraid of heights, and going to swim with sharks.
I try to help anyone that can get value from my life experiences, and give back as much as I can.
