    But flash sale sites trended down right as Warby Parker came to the market. We’ll hear how he decided to copy his well-funded competitor and pivoted to DTC.

LOVE IT!!!

Andrew is real and honest. He brings on guests that are really insightful and give great advice on how to run a business. This is a must listen!

Speed

I love the context. Andrew talks so fast, I have to slow the speed down, but the. It slows the guest. Andre needs to learn how to match the temp of his guest. I’d listen more but it’s too anxiety inducing.
