Today we’d like to introduce you to Harrison Baum.
Harrison, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
In August 2015, I was an avid cannabis enthusiast working at Vistaprint as a fraud specialist for their website builder. In a sea of talented developers and designers, I was at the bottom of the totem pole. I paid my entire college tuition fixing iPhones and had that entrepreneurial itch once again. I saw another subscription service pop up on my Facebook feed and thought, ‘Wow, I could do this for a dollar!’
After creating a scrappy website and buying $700 worth of materials, I put the idea on Reddit /trees. Within hours it had topped r/trees, I gained his first few hundred subscribers overnight, and walked out of my day job. We starting doing collabs and worked our way up, eventually leading the company to the backyard of the mellow lord and savior… Tommy Chong. We’ve since moved the whole crew to L.A., ready to take DHC to the next level!
Has it been a smooth road?
Not at all! One night in my sleep, my shoulder socket tore apart, painfully reversing a socket repair surgery I had after a bad skiing accident when I was 19. In the midst of trying to get the business off the ground, I had to get a Latarjet shoulder socket reconstruction–a complicated surgery leading to a tube in my neck pumping painkillers for a week, and months of recovery.
It was really devastating and put a huge strain on the company’s progression. I was so scared that I typed up an email to the biggest competitor saying I wanted to sell the business. But never hitting “send” was the best life decision I ever made.
Sidenote: that competitor has since gone out of business.
