Our Story

Our founder, Andrea Reindl, has been running businesses since she was 16 years old - a dyed-in-the-wool entrepreneur.

It says a lot about who we are that we’re lead by a marketing maven who has spent the last 10 years regularly flying around the world to jam with thought leaders on branding personas, launch strategy and messaging psychology.

In a nutshell, we’re a team of finishers who think it’s fun (and frankly, a privilege) to help good people with good messages, build the infrastructure that will amplify their message to the world.

Here are a few things that speak to the heart of who we are:
  • It’s not worth it to us if we don’t look up to you. We have massive respect for every single one of our clients, and that makes our work that much more meaningful.
  • We pride ourselves on high quality work without crazy high agency rates.
  • We always tell it like it is. Transparency and straightforwardness matter. A LOT.
  • We love working with clear communicators who know what they want and are ready to MOVE. We’re movers.
  • We work smart, without ever skimping on quality. Efficiency and excellence can (and should) coexist.
  • And most importantly, we believe that every time we help a client work fewer hours while earning more, somewhere, the bartender gives everyone a free round.

He was born on a tiny island called Brunei Darussalam in Asia, and he loves writing, reading (business books in particular), and playing basketball in his spare time. He can play the guitar and in his younger years he thought he was destined to be a rapper. We’re all about dreaming big here at Legacy Creative, so Manny fits right in with the rest of us.
