Badassery Factory Founders

Andre Popa was born in Romania under Communism. His family made the journey to America when he was 9 years old with nothing but each other. No English, no money, no choice but to work hard as a family to survive. His parents were both Electricians as their “assigned trade” back in Communist Romania, so taking that skill set, they did whatever jobs they could find, and eventually started their own company. After all, that was the “American Dream”!

Andre worked alongside his family as an Electrician throughout his childhood, Andre worked alongside his family as an Electrician throughout his childhood… avocados, candy, newspapers, and puppies!

As a young adult, his entrepreneurial spirit was taking flight and he ventured out beyond Electrical into Design & Construction. He quickly discovered he was a natural people person, and his connecting skills, along with his extraordinary vision and unique designs landed him multiple high-profile projects, including designing and building homes for several celebrities. He had definitely found his niche in creating, building and connecting!

In 2000, he met Tami Popa, a kindred spirit. The only child of a single parent, she was no stranger to tough times and hard work either. She started working at the age of 12, and never stopped. Big dreams and a burning desire to change the course of her family’s financial future led her down an entrepreneurial path. By the age of 19, she had found her niche in Network Marketing and was earning a 5 figure monthly income!

Andre and Tami quickly put their entrepreneurial heads and hearts together, and through the years have built several successful businesses, on top of raising two beautiful girls, now teenagers.

They have never been satisfied with the status quo, and constantly strive to achieve new levels of success, or as they like to say … Badassery! It’s this mindset that sets them apart from the rest, and keeps them hustling.

In 2017, they transitioned out of their traditional businesses, to pursue their dreams and passion projects. One of which was to take their years of experience as entrepreneurs, and passion for teaching and helping others, to the next level. This was the launch of Badassery Factory, a place where anyone from anywhere could go through the Factory and come out a BADASS … In life, relationships and business!

Today, Andre and Tami run their dream businesses from their cell phones, inspiring and empowering others to unleash their inner Badass, and travel the world with their girls! That is their “American Dream”!
