Quotes

“You can buy your way into some stuff, but you know...If you’re getting your product on and in people’s hands, and they really start using it, that’s the way to [get media attention].” (10:57)

 

“I’ve always felt like the company has a different feel than many other companies I know.  And if you look at the messaging that Andrew has created the entire time the brand has been alive, you’ll notice that we don’t shy away from being transparent about everything that we are good at and what we need to improve on and how we’re going to do that.”  (17:46)
