Episode 8: From Sue to Sew: The Radical Career Switch of Michael Andrews

Michael Andrews trained his whole life to climb the corporate career ladders. He earned an undergraduate degree in engineering from Georgia Tech and an joint MBA and JD from Northwestern. His hard work paid off in a corporate law job with a prestigious firm. But through it all, he had a nagging dream to be an entrepreneur. And not some dot-com star, he wanted to be a clothier, making custom made suits for men. Evan and returning guest host (now the longest guest host in show history!) Dan talk to Michael about ditching a guaranteed paycheck for a business that requires satisfying picky customers, working with overseas manufacturers and dealing with lots of lots of returns (especially in the early days). To start the podcast off, Evan and Dan discuss the firing of New York Times editor Jill Abramson and whether radical transparency in salaries would have prevented this and other corporate problems.
