I'm so excited about this podcast. I have been a Design Cuts customer for a couple of years now, and then I was led to the Honest Designers Show, and that's been really helpful for me. But then I heard this new podcast mentioned on that show, and I was excited to listen because it's also really relevant to what I'm doing and Tom has a lot of experience and advice to share.
Tom Ross brings the same down to earth straight talk and honesty to this podcast as he does in The Honest Designer. His desire to truly help and explain the ins and outs of being an Entrepreneur is very refreshing in an onslaught of Get Rich Quick hucksters and "Listen to me for 15 minutes then buy my Course" sales pitches. He presents his ancedotes in easy to listen to quick episodes with great insight and examples. A great listen for anybody trying to carve their own successful path today.
Tom is the mentor you’ve been looking for.
As I have been changing careers, Tom has been supportive through his words and his podcast. It has literally been the most valuable and closest thing to a personal mentor that I could have ever asked for. The fact that he does this podcast because he wants to teach others is so admirable. Also his honesty is something that really resonates with me. His podcast isn’t just for designers. You could really be any type of entrepreneur. I hope to work hard and one day be teaching others like Tom!
