In this episode:
Andre tells us about growing up in St.Louis and how a shocking change in schools turned his interest towards TV and TV production. Andre says that entrepreneurially thinking to him means being a ‘super-connector’ and says he enjoys connecting people and loves seeing others shine when given the opportunity to do so.
Andre talks about finding balance in television coverage in a way that caters to not just one community but all communities and their needs. Andre and his team then took a look at those needs and branded STL-TV as a channel that airs many different topics that would engage a wide audience.
Andre tells us about his most recent business venture called MINE, YOUR Biz Networking Events. Andre felt the need to create an event and a space where entrepreneurs or future entrepreneurs could come and have a dialogue with other business owners.
Andre explains how he plans to continue his MINE, YOUR Biz Networking events in the midst of COVID. Andre has a plan to gather top young professionals and connect them through zoom networking events.
Andre gives some advice to entrepreneurs and says to set yourself apart from the others and find what it is that you do really well – and that you love and stick to that.
