IT’S JUST ROSS B: an entrepreneur’s story
I’m excited to share a new collaboration I’ve been working hard on with a very close friend of mine Ross Bielejeski. It’s a two-episode pilot called “It’s Just Ross B”. You can watch both episodes on this page and learn the story behind the story below. Enjoy!
Ready to tell your story?
Why did we do this?
I recently launched my video storytelling business Fungi Media. One thing I wanted most, was to help entrepreneurs tell their personal brand story. It’s one of the most effective ways to connect with your audience and inspire others. It’s a growing need and it just so happened that Ross was looking for a way to do that and more.
As an entrepreneur, no one gives you a step-by-step guide. So, I look around to see what others like me are doing. What’s their story? I see a lot of successful entrepreneurs, but not very many at the beginning or middle of their journey. I wanted to share my story and inspire others to take that next step.

It only works if it’s authentic
We didn’t want to make a commercial for Rock With U, Ross’s business. There’s a time and place for that sort of content. We wanted to share Ross’s personal journey in a way that connected emotionally with his peeps. That meant waking up at 5:00 am to follow Ross getting a jump start on emails, feeding the kids, commuting to work, meeting with the team…etc.
It seems like people only present their polished product to the world. They only show their best side to the camera. They skip the “nitty gritty behind-the-scenes stuff” that really goes into creating a business. But we want to see that stuff. That’s why you see me waking up early, taking out the trash, trying to feed my kid in the kitchen sink because that’s the only thing that worked that day. It’s real.

Entrepreneurs love telling their story
For me it was intimidating because it’s a little personal. But Matt and Fungi addressed the elephant in the room. They showed up with ideas and expertise. Matt is behind the camera, but he’s also a performer and entrepreneur. He gets it. The team knew how to make me comfortable. I showed my wife the final product and she simply said “Those are REALLY good!” I’m an entrepreneur so I love telling my story. I would highly recommend talking to the Fungi team if you’re ready to do the same. - ROSS BIELEJESKI
