Andrew sits down with The Success Bug to talk about his business journey. As a 1st generation immigrant growing up in Toronto, Andrew always knew he wanted to start a business. But being a 1st generation immigrant comes with expectations. So, Andrew started his professional career as a litigation associate at a small law firm. There, he learned how to think with an open mind and stick to his guns. Andrew then talks about the social pressures he faced when he decided to quit his job to found his first company. Finally, Jay and Andrew discuss the necessary steps for anyone to take to overcome these social pressures. Please enjoy Andrew Arruda!
