More About Andy…
Born in Boston to two Haitian immigrants, at seven years old Andy moved to Rhode Island. During his early teenage years, he wanted “things” like clothes, disposable money, electronics, and other such things. His parents gave him the necessities (food, water, shelter) but Andy wanted more, so he started his work-life at the local Wendy’s.
The money he was making in the burger restaurant was enough to meet his needs but not enough to match his wants. Andy knew there had to be a way to make more money. This turned Andy into a hungry entrepreneur. It started with a small online business, where he bought and sold products online and resold them on eBay. After eBay, he found himself working full-time at a mobile phone store. This store is where he started understanding the inner workings of a small business.
Andy soon realized he had to own a business and not work for anyone else. He started his own
cell phone dealership with mid to high-end devices that catered to the middle class.
Andy is a now a well-traveled motivational speaker who lives in Los Angeles. He is the author of the book “No More Average” and produces live Progression Conferences in many cities throughout the United States. For more information, visit AndyAudate.com.
