We had the good fortune of connecting with Andrew Hazzlee and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Andrew, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I’ve started many businesses before but never actually fully went for it until I started Vehement Visuals 2 years ago. I’ve always wanted to run a successful business since I was 16 years old and attempted many times and failed a lot. When I started Vehement Visuals I knew I wanted to get into filmmaking as a career path and quickly realized I should just start my own video business. I felt this was the best way to get into the field.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I super excited about the rebranding of the company and the new branches of services we are going to be offering. Basically any creative need a business has we can do. Whether it’s videography, photography, graphic design, web design, writing, ect.
The path of getting this business going required a lot of sacrifice and a willingness to do whatever it took to make it successful. I feel I am just now getting a grasp of what needs to be done and the amount of hard work required to grow this business.
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learn is to not rest on my laurels and to maintain discipline and speed when it comes to getting things done within the business.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them on a trip up Pikes Peak. We’d visit the great sand dunes and go sandboarding. Take them on a drive through Cheyanne mountain all the way to cripple creek. Some places we’d go to eat are T-Bryds tacos and Coati. I’d definitely take them on a hike through Palmer Park.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
A huge shoutout to the Video Warrior tribe for helping me see what I needed to take the full leap into my business and the guidance from Nik Koyama and Marcus Rideout.
