Talks of imperfection - Ep.005 - Tony Cho

It's Episode 005 when we are reminded that obstacles can be a valuable part of our journeys.

We are in Tony’s home in Miami Beach, Florida, USA, on a windy but clear Thursday evening of March. Tony Cho traces the experiences of his youth living in a communal ashram, doing his first city district development work in Miami, USA, and how life experiences have guided him towards a desire of creating a more sustainable world.

Tony (b. 1978) is an American-born and Miami-based real estate and city district developer who is leading the future of urban development platforms aiming to impact the lives of 1 billion people through innovations in the built environment. Tony is a global citizen whose career, life, vision, serendipities and passion have taken him first around the two American continents and then around the world. 

“The most challenging moments in my life have really made me the human that I am today. It’s not when things were easy or things were just in perfect flow and harmony that I learned the most. It was through the challenges, the mistakes, the failures.” — Tony Cho

Talks of imperfection – Not your ordinary business podcast

Talks of imperfection is a new podcast series of intimately open diverse conversations where globally recognized leaders, founders, entrepreneurs and activists reveal their personal relationships with growth, collaboration, success and imperfection.

Season one features eight carefully curated guests coming from different backgrounds, cultures, languages and professions who all share the common goal of creating a more equal, more reasonable and increasingly sustainable future through their talent, network, vision and passion.

This is not your ordinary business podcast but a gentle platform for deeply meaningful conversations that redefines our views on doubt, failure and vulnerability and connects the blurring dots between smarter working habits and more balanced private life.

The show is in English only and hosted by Risto Kuulasmaa, an Amsterdam-based entrepreneur, wanna-be surfer and a life-long student of imperfection, and enabled by Edita Prima, the kindest Nordic tech company that orchestrates automated customer journeys to perfection.

“Life is perfect. How you relate to life creates all the imperfections. Nature is perfect and we are part of it, it is our minds that creates the separation. We create our subjective truths about perfection and imperfection and this is why talking about imperfections is so interesting.” — Risto Kuulasmaa
