Andrew Gilliland – founder of www.iSpyPens.com, Microsoft Partner, Shopify development specialist, NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and leader at The University of Tampa – has been passionate about online sales since the early age of 8 years old. At age 14, he launched “Snapback Express,” a highly profitable e-commerce business selling licensed sports hats, and at some points earning over $10,000 per month in revenues. Here he learned about the complexities of order fulfillment, cash management, customer service, professional relationship building, digital marketing, Search Engine Optimization, and revenue generation.
This venture revealed Andrew’s passion and extraordinary natural ability to produce high quality work in the areas of digital marketing, sales, web development, and consulting due to his results driven approach to business. Today, Andrew works with small-medium business owners offering innovative technology solutions that enable them to take their efforts to the next level. He manages his own company, iSpyPens LLC, which he has built from the ground up.
Aside from his passion for business, Andrew believes in the power of health, fitness, and nutrition. After years of consistent training, he decided it was time to share his passion with the world and took it upon himself to become a Personal Trainer, certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
At The University of Tampa, Andrew is a Microsoft Student Partner. This cutting edge program provides a challenging opportunity to lead as a technology professional and ambassador for Microsoft, while developing the most valuable skills in the world. Not only does he work for Microsoft, but he is also a Resident Assistant (RA) at The University of Tampa where he leads a community of aspiring entrepreneurs.
During his free time, Andrew enjoys biking, reading, graphic design, and executing new business ventures. Andrew has a vision to revolutionize the way humans stay healthy by fusing passion for health and love for technology. Some of his biggest inspirations include Gary Vaynerchuk, Eric Thomas, and Tony Robbins.
