The Story of Andy
Andy Stiebler – Columbus, Ohio – Husband, Father and Adventurer
A son of the midwest, I was born and bred in Columbus Ohio. I was birthed as the only boy into a loving, large and very feminine, Catholic family. Growing up outnumbered 1:5 in such an environment required my frequent escape to the outdoors. When not pursuing independent endeavors, I often worked for my entrepreneur father. Being a part of many of his businesses successes and failures paved the way for my pursuit of an education in business and marketing.
My entrepreneurial spirit stems from my sense of adventure. A passion, albeit, perhaps a skill that was observed at an early age. I credit this trait to my world-trekking grandfather and national geographic collecting great-uncle. This sense of adventure has inspired me to travel, volunteer, and work across many geographic locations. These locations have spanned from the smallest corners of the United States to the most desolate mountains of New Zealand. These travels have taught me to look at old problems in new ways and never be afraid to explore a new path.
My early upbringing helped steer me to a life of independence and entrepreneurship. It also set the cornerstone of my personality, a laid back guide who enjoys coaching and mentoring business leaders.
