Episode 238 – Andrew Aebersold

Is it possible to reinvent yourself…even after 20 years?

When I started chatting with Andrew Aebersold, I realized he’s a rare breed of entrepreneur. After two decades running his digital marketing agency Mediaura, he’s still adapting to new technologies and focusing on where he can best help people.

In our wide-ranging discussion on The Hero Show, Andrew shared how he got his start in the early Internet days accidentally…and ended up finding meaningful work improving behavioral healthcare marketing. I enjoyed exploring his unique skills for “translating” complex tech into plain language so clients fully understand solutions.

We also touched on why integrity guides so many of his business decisions, even when it means walking away from revenue. I think you’ll be inspired by his lifelong commitment to mastery and ethics.

If you want to hear how a nimble mindset keeps this digital hero at the top of his game, don’t miss my revealing interview with Andrew Aebersold!

About Me

Who Is Richard Matthews

Family First Entrepreneur, Full-Time Traveler, Collector of Skills


Hey, I'm Richard.

I’m the CEO of PushButtonPodcasts & Host of The HERO Show.

I’m the guy people come to when they want to build a podcast to promote their business but don't want to spend a ton of time on it.

I travel full-time with my wife, 4 children, a standard poodle, and 2 ferrets. I spend 8-10 hours a week running my companies and the rest of my time living my best life. I've been living the dream for more than 6 years and have lots of ideas on how other entrepreneurs can do the same if they want.

I write on this blog about the concepts that let me live this lifestyle: Family First Entrepreneurship, Lifestyle Design, & HEROic Brands so other business owners can finally give themselves permission to play.

I am not currently accepting clients due to current projects.

If you feel that you are a unique case, feel free to reach out and we can discuss it.
