sam rosen

Sam Rosen, Founder of Deskpass and One Design Company, joins The Rob Cressy Show to talk about lessons learned on his entrepreneurial journey, how he used to sell rocks for money, his process for turning ideas into action, how to be a better connector of people, how he deals with adversity, and his thoughts on the future of co-working.


  • You can connect with Sam Rosen on Twitter @SammyRosen or on his personal website SammyRosen.com.
  • If you are looking to try out co-working spaces in Chicago then I highly recommend checking out Deskpass. I’ve used it and really enjoyed it.
  • If you are looking for awesome design then check out One Design Company.

Feedback (I want to hear from you):

  • Did this podcast get you to take action in some way? Are you a creator who’s hustling or building something great? How do you live in action? I’d love your thoughts and feedback on our conversation.
