My guest today is Andy McCune, an entrepreneur and creative who co-founded Unfold, a mobile design tool kit for storytellers that was acquired by Squarespace. He also runs an Instagram account called Earth (@earth on Instagram) with 1.1 million followers. Andy is one of the very most talented people I know. And he has a more intuitive, make-it-and-test-it way of working than most of the people on this podcast. I’ve built a friendship with him as he’s flown under the radar for years. I remember talking to Andy about Unfold back when it was just a small side project, and it’s been a joy to watch Andy grow and scale the business. Please enjoy my conversation with Andy McCune.
In this episode of The Darkroom Podcast we had the pleasure of speaking with New York based entrepreneur and creative Andy McCune. You may know Andy as the Co-founder of Unfold, one of the hottest growing design and storytelling apps, or as the founder of Earth, a millennial-focused travel media company. Andy’s work and passions have landed him and his Co-founder Alfonso Cobo on the coveted Forbes 30 Under 30 list and an array of publications. We walk through what it was like to drop out of college just a year into his studies and how he transformed his mindset into becoming an infinite learner. We also hear about Andy’s experience in scaling an eCommerce business and how that has helped him scale his current ventures. Being comfortable with the uncomfortable is a common topic of this show and Andy embodies everything that comes with that disposition. Enjoy!
Andy McCune is a needle in a haystack. He’s the one you read about, the one making the most insane moves—the one who is doing too much to count. He’s the founder of Earth, a millennial-focused travel media company; co-founder of Unfold, a design toolkit for storytellers; founder of Coast9, an influencer marketing platform; and founder of several e-commerce companies, including Christmas AF. Oh, and a minor detail? He just made Forbes’ 30 under 30 list. Whoa is right.
We wanted to dig a little deeper and see how, beneath all of the accolades, Andy is does it all. No, not just the work, but how does he deal with feeling overwhelmed? How has he overcome failure? What hobbies leave him feeling full? Listen in to hear those answers and more from the man himself.
