The Nitty Gritty Show is about challenging boundaries and being intentional about how we pursue our own definitions of success. Our hosts are Andrew Van Buren, an entrepreneur in the financial advising industry, and Cameron Treu, a successful restaurant founder and owner. The entrepreneurial spirit drives us and inspires us to be ever-improving. Our guests are examples of how this can be done in various settings and with various tools, usually the unconventional. Join us as we explore real life, real people, real stories, and how pushing back can make all the difference.

I originally went to the podcast to listen to the “Mikesell Miracle” and then saw they interviewed Kim White and a whole bunch of other influencers that I follow. I proceeded to binge listen to most of the episodes any chance I got. Now, I’m stuck waiting for Monday’s to listen to the new episode. Great content!
I look forward to every Monday for this podcast
I love this podcast and haven’t missed an episode! It’s the perfect combination of real conversations, real wisdom, real life lessons with a crap load of humor.
Always has great guests with awesome topics to discuss but it’s frustrating when Cam over talks about himself and they don’t probe into the subject enough. They often veer off subject and don’t come back to it.
