knows what the Sunshine State of Florida, USA is famous
for: Orange Juice, Disney World, Cape Canaveral,
Beautiful Beaches, the Andrews family — the Andrews
family? That’s right. Florida’s Bob and Terry Andrews
are legends in their own time, even though they would be
the last to describe themselves that way.
“We started our business to make a great life and to
help others do the same,” is what they will tell you.
And of course that is exactly what they have done for
decades, inspiring tens, even hundreds of thousands
across North America and the world to build a great
future for themselves and their families. And that’s the
stuff of legends.
When they began their business, Bob and Terry were
students at the University of South Florida. He was 23
and she was just 19. They wanted to get married, to
enjoy their lives, to be free. When they learned there
was a possibility of becoming independent business
owners, they quickly launched their independent business
on a shoestring. The first “office” of what today is
Andrews International was the trunk of Bob’s car.
Now just about everything
is different for Bob and Terry Andrews. The most
rewarding difference, they are quick to emphasize, is
their two grown sons, Matt and Cale. But there are
material differences that are very hard to miss.
Andrews' home is on 12 acres just northwest of Tampa and
includes orange groves and ponds for fishing. They have a
lake to water ski and jet ski on and Bob loves to go out
fishing in his bass boat. The Andrews love waking up to
the lush gardens Florida produces every morning knowing
that they own their own business and the freedom that

Terry works out with a personal trainer
several times a week. She loves to run and is an
accomplished water skier. Recently she and son Cale
traveled to a Dolphin Research Center in the Florida
Keys to do research on dolphins while they swim and play
with them. Terry knew what she is in for, since she did
it four years earlier with her son Matt.
Bob is an avid and competitive cyclist. A
50th birthday gift took him across the Atlantic to ride
the Tour de France route, where he covered 1100 miles of
the Tour in ten days. He is also a keen hunter. Recently
he went on an African Safari, and also spent ten days on
horseback in the Rockies.
It is no exaggeration to say that everything is
different today for Bob and Terry Andrews. One thing,
however has not changed at all. It is their unwavering
belief in people who are willing to work to make their
dreams come true.
