Episode 39: A.J. Bingham - The Bingham Group, LLC
Today, all the way from Austin, Texas, we hear from A.J. Bingham. A.J. is the Founder and CEO of The Bingham Group.
He grew up in Austin before enrolling at Wake Forest University, where he studied political science. A.J. then took the jump many lobbyists have: he went to law school. He received his J.D. from Washburn University School of Law.
A.J. got his start working in the Texas State Senate, and has now started his own firm. He's got quite a track record working for various firms and organizations in Austin!
Texas' legislative model is very different than most states – the legislature meets every other year, for only 140 days. Incredible. And people ask me what I do in the off-session! Most legislators don’t even drive home from the state capitol – they fly.
A.J. gives us a great feel for Texas and what it’s like to start your own business. He is a true entrepreneur: usually we have to reach out to our guests, but this time he reached out to us. He is not waiting for things to happen. He also has his own podcast (listen in here). I highly recommend it!
It was wonderful having A.J. on the show, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
