On the nineteenth episode of Radically Honest, your host Dasom Lee sits down with Creative Entrepreneur, Founder and CEO of DesignCuts, and Host of Biz Buds and The Honest Designer Show Tom Ross. Fired up with entrepreneurial ambition pre-puberty, the only time he didn’t work for himself was stocking shelves at a store. His adversity story is inspiring—lean in closer.
“[Without adversity], you wouldn’t be a well-rounded, mature, and resilient character.“ – Tom Ross.
Bask in gratitude and respect your physical limitations. Be honest about your struggles. His brand? Relationship-building. He fondly recalls befriending Design Cuts’ earliest users, as they chatted for hours. The gold mine? The precious feedback they gifted him with. Preaching the non-scalable relational business metric, he’s a believer in the power of authenticity—as a business tool. So, how can you serve your audience? Listen to the episode to find out.
