On this week’s podcast, Andrew kicks off our “Under 30” series. In this series, we feature successful people under the age of 30 to give a unique perspective for young people. 


Eric Chandler couldn’t be a more appropriate guest to kick off the “Under 30” series. Eric is a national champion wrestler, Hall of Fame sales rep at his company, and he currently operates and owns his own business which now employs over 20 people. Eric gives a unique perspective on life. He grew up as an underdog which shaped his mentality and how he views adversity. He’s climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro with a major knee injury, and even survived a shipwreck! In the interview, Eric and Andrew teach lessons on work ethic, having the right expectations, and persevering through adversity to separate yourself in life.
