Anthony Pedrotti w/ Pedrotti's Ranch
I’ve been SO ready to release this episode with Anthony Pedrotti because he’s AWESOME! And he’s promoting his venue and his open house on November 14th at Pedrotti’s Ranch in Helotes, Texas. But Anthony talks about growing up with a family of entrepreneurs and what it’s like to step back into the family business. And how he’s added his own dimension to the business since he’s stepped in…while still respecting the blood, sweat and tears that his family put in before him. Pedrotti’s rounds the 25 year mark this year. So congrats to them and this amazing milestone. And thanks for talking with us here at the HUB!
