How do you get from the sales floor to the boardroom? Brad Anderson‘s 36-year journey with Best Buy began when he left seminary school and decided to work as a sales clerk at a music store. That store would later become Best Buy, and he would go from a (by his own admission) poor sales clerk, to CEO. Brad joins the Down to Business Podcast to discuss his journey and what he learned along the way.

Down to Business is a unique interview show that delves into the stories, ideas, and thoughts of some of the world’s most successful people in business, finance, entrepreneurship, technology, and investing. Instead of focusing on where they are now, we focus on how our guests got there; how they went from the sales floor to the boardroom, the people and decisions that helped them along the way, and the nights where they were curled up in the fetal position with a glass of Merlot wondering if they had just ruined it all. Real life stories that have led to real life success.
