He got fired. Now he's worth millions (ft. Andrew Gazdecki)

Get ready for the first episode of Up Next! We're chatting with Andrew Gazdecki, a guy who went from being fired to making millions as an entrepreneur. He spills the tea on college, mentorship, and the rollercoaster ride of building (& selling) his first startup, BiznessApps. Plus, find out how it felt when that crazy multi-million-dollar payout hit his bank account 🤯

Andrew's got tons of advice for you, like whether college is worth it, how to build an online presence, how to score a job, and what he thinks most entrepreneurs get wrong. He shares why he keeps starting companies and talks about his current project, Acquire.com, where he's helped sell over $1b worth of businesses. Tune in now to hear Andrew's take on success, life, and the best decisions he's ever made.
