We had the good fortune of connecting with Dom Root and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dom, how do you think about risk?
I embrace risks. When I first got into business, I was in middle school and I sold candy. I sold snickers, starbursts, skittles, and other popular candies in the early 2000’s. But in order to make that happen, I had to convince my mother to invest the start up money in order to buy the candy, under the risk of losing the money and blowing my chances of getting help in the future. So with that in mind, I’ve always moved with an understanding of value and risks and that understanding has played an instrumental role in my decision making.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a music producer looking to work with artists in the field of R&B, Hip-Hop, Rap, and Spoken Word. I’ve grown up in music production and the road has been fun, but definitely tough. My biggest challenge has been overcoming my own self-doubt or insecurity. It is a work in progress, but I have learned to create and not stress too much about perfection. In addition to producing music, I work as a live sound tech and a recording engineer. One thing that I would like people to know about my story is that I live to progress. I enjoy learning and look forward to overcoming obstacles. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Dreamz Into Goals LLC, was an organization that definitely inspired me and helped mentor our brand’s earlier creative concepts. In a way that brand helped to energize our start and we look forward to continuing the growth. From live shows to short-film productions, DIG has been a dope resource for myself as well as the I Am Root® Brand.
