I just interviewed Andrew Warner. Andrew is best known as the pushy interviewer who founded Mixergy, the place where proven entrepreneurs teach.
But I turned the tables and interviewed him. Andrew came on to talk about chat bots. Specifically, why major companies are making chat bots a big part of their marketing and sales strategy. PS. You may have heard Facebook temporarily paused new chatbots on their platform. I asked Andrew about that, too. I think you’ll want to hear what he had to say.
It’s one of my best interviews to date.

About Andrew Warner
Andrew Warner is an internet, startup entrepreneur. In his 20s, he used credit cards and ingenuity to create a $30+ mil / year (in sales) internet business with his younger brother. He then created Mixergy to help ambitious people who love business as much as he does learn from a mix of experienced mentors. Andrew does that through interviews where founders tell their stories and courses where they teach a solution to issues that can cripple founders.
On Mixergy, he invites proven entrepreneurs to teach how they built their startups. The entrepreneurs who’ve helped me out by appearing on Mixergy include the founders of Wikipedia, Groupon, LivingSocial, LinkedIn, and over 600 others.
