Tom Ross & Michael Janda Interview Transcription

Ian Paget: So, I have never had guests back on the show prior to this episode.

Michael Janda: Oh, yes!

Ian Paget: It's always been a new guest, so you guys are the first to do it, but you're a duo now, so I think we need to let the audience know, what is this? Why are you two now together as BizBuds? How did that come to happen?

Tom Ross: Mike, do you want to take this one?

Michael Janda: Yeah, I'll jump into that. Tom was giving so much good content, but nobody liked him because he's just off-putting, and so he was like, "I've got to bring in somebody who's got charisma and good looks so that people will actually listen to this show," and I was like, "Okay, Tom. That's fine. That's fine." That's actually just only part of the story. Tom and I did... We have some brotherly banter that happens in our show, so bear with us on this one. Tom and I... Last year, I was growing my Instagram audience. Tom was doing the same thing at the same time, and I started doing video collaborations with people, and I had seen a couple video clips of Tom. This is back... He had 10,000 followers or something.
