How I Built This Podcast

Quotes by Andrew:

“I love everything about building a company and having staff… I don’t know if I could do anything else at this point.”

“Obviously our work stands for itself…. You can’t continue to pawn off sub-quality work just because you’re doing it internally.”

“My number one goal is to build a business that sustains ten years.”
