Excited to be a guest one day!

Really grateful for Andrew asking the questions we all want to hear the answers to. Revenue, exit amounts and the challenges faced while growing.

Very excited to talk with him once we exit one day in the next few years.

One of 3 podcasts that I have to listen to every single week.
