MK Getler,

"If you are endlessly curious, my posts have to have a lot of 'What do you think?' 'What do you see?' 'How do you remain happy in your job?' That's my curiosity speaking this truth." - Andrea Lechner-Becker

Self-described “thought wrangler”, Andrea Lechner-Becker is helping brands big and small stick the landing on their audience activation. 

During this episode, MK chats with Andrea about her own journey of becoming more authentic in her career and how that’s playing into her work with clients today. The conversation is exceptionally practical and you’ll leave with tons of advice that any person or brand looking to declutter their ideas and craft compelling hooks to reach their audience can learn from.

One note before you dig in: there is a bit of spicy language in this episode (but nothing you haven’t heard on HBO).
