- Let's Talk
From a young age, Andrew Denysov had every intention of being a soccer player when he grew up. However, after a trip to the United States and seeing a commercial with Steve Jobs, Andrew became one of the first individuals to sell iPhones in Ukraine. This venture was only the beginning of Andrew’s exploration into the tech world, but years later the future of his entrepreneurial journey was put into question when Russia invaded Ukraine. Throughout this episode, Andrew and Rick discuss how he made the decision to use his company to help the economy and other families in need during his country’s conflict with Russia. Tune in to hear about Andrew’s defining moments!
“You have to put your goals on your values. So I have my five values that help me to create everything. This is the foundation. This is the backbone…It doesn’t matter if the goals don’t go the way I want, I want my values to be the same.” - Andrew Denysov, (28:46)
