Axim Roundtable: Origin StoryRicky Hamilton
Today we bring you our very first full episode of the Axim Roundtable podcast. We're joined by Karol Steczkowski (President + Founder), Cody Charneski (Senior Producer), and Sabrina Rostkowski (Project Manager) to talk about how Axim was founded, where the name came from, Karol's love of Ecko jumpsuits and their role in roping Cody and Sabrina into working here, and what happened to take the company from a team of 3 to a team of 10 (and growing) over the course of a few weeks. This is part 1 of a 3-part introductory series to the making of our team, working title: Axim Assemble.
