GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — In this new episode of The Angie Q Podcast, we’re speaking on the highs, lows and how-tos when it comes to starting a business. 

Angie sits down with a local creative and longtime friend, who took an idea, created a brand and mastered the business when it comes to his unique clothing line called “PRDN,” pronounced “pardon”. Angie and Jonas actually went to Kindergarten together in Stamford, Conn.
