Jason Smith: Creating Clarity and Connection for Growth
Fei Wu

Welcome to the Feisworld podcast, engaging conversations that cross the boundaries between business, art, and the digital world

ing I. It's the conversations that matter, right? And the listening. That is actually more important now I think. I realize that journey is a lot longer, and the conversations and the articulating those things and refining that, it takes a long time and that's a lot harder.

Part of my realm is that I. Mid-level explorer capacity and a high level excite capacity. So I view a lot of what I do is like getting people excited about stuff. And so if it's not clear and it's not connecting with people, it drives me crazy.

I feel like there's always transitions, right? I think the transitions I go through a lot are, it feels like, I don't know. They're happening all the time. Right. I think that's what's. Running your own business, like I feel like you just, you don't know what you don't know, and so you're surprised or things happen and, and you don't have a boss or you know, a good boss who's giving you some sort of perspective.

Right, right, right. There's lots of questions a lot of times, and so.

Hi everyone. This is FA W, and I am your host for the Face World Podcast. This week I would like to welcome Jason Smith to Face World. Jason is the managing director and founder at O HO Interactive, a thriving, curious, creative team of 30 strategists, creatives, and developers solving business problems in the digital.

Jason and I connected via LinkedIn in 2012. Over the years, we exchanged ideas on project management, digital strategy, and growing talents. Finally, in May, 2016, together with the VP of Operations at O Ho, Stephanie Cro, we found just a perfect project for us to work. Over the past three months, I grew closer to the entire AHO team and had the opportunity to speak with everyone in the company.

I also developed a tremendous appreciation for founders and understanding for the decisions they have to make, the challenges they have to overcome on a regular basis. So I welcome Jason to open up about his philosophy in running his organization. While we're added, I took Jason back to where it all began in 19 98, 18 years ago.

Wino Ho was just starting up. What was it like to run a company in the late nineties, Jason The mystifies, the process and shared some of the most important lessons learned. With a degree in English from Brown University and a degree in design from rti. Jason can brand, construct, and market and experience or a product that enables him to quickly engage with clients and understand their business objectives.

He believes that every project brings a myriad of possibilities. And our podcast speaks to a much related belief, which is that Jason also believes that every person brings a unique set of skills and values to the team. To me, one attribute that stands out the most for Jason is the beacon of clarity.
