Extremely insightful time with "friends"

Brewing a cup of coffee and turning on Andy's podcast is like welcoming the very best of the industry into your own home office. I love hearing about the many different ways to succeed - or not - from professionals who have been in this field for decades. This is a must-listen podcast if you hope to thrive in the wedding industry.
