What if reels could open the door for you? More opportunities, more conversations.. more sales!


Say hello to this hilarious husband & wife duo Andrew and Tamlyn! These online sensations will be sharing their reel journey with you today and how they have mastered the art of being themselves. 


We’ll talk about dropping attention spans, the importance of video vs static, avoiding the trap of comparison, building relationships, finding what works for you AND having fun with it!


Andrew and Tamlyn (Tamdrew) have a combined 10 years in Network Marketing and are the National Vice Presidents of Arbonne International. Tamlyn was a professional dancer, travelling the world on a luxury cruise ship where she met her husband Andrew. After Tamlyn’s career ended abruptly they found themselves in Australia with absolutely no network. Adjustment after ‘cruise ship life’ didn’t come easy and they weren’t content with trading time for money so they dove into the Direct Selling industry.

About Andrew and Tamlyn:

We are Tamlyn and Andrew Samuel… a husband and wife team!

I (Tamlyn) was a professional dancer In London’s Westend and on luxury cruises. Whilst performing I met my Aussie man Andrew, we emigrated to Australia to start our family, resulting in a gorgeous son Ethan who’s 10 and a cheeky Cavoodle named Chewy. We live in sunny Noosa, Queensland and together as a partnership built to the level of National Vice President with Arbonne International.

We hit a wall with Social Media, it became something we knew we had to do, but didn’t enjoy doing. We were pretty lost to be honest… and were fed up trying to keep up with the high-flyers.

So we made a decision that enough was enough and we became totally invested in learning everything we needed to know to grow our knowledge on Social Media.

What happened in the process, is that we started to enjoy ourselves again, we started having fun, it was no longer a chore because we were connecting with our ideal audience. We stopped chasing the followers and realised that what mattered most was connection, the numbers do not determine your success, but instead the relationship does.

We have learnt so much of what to do and what not to do and this is where “Tamdrewsocial” was born. Our mission is to bring fun back to your Social Media, arm you with the tools you need to succeed and to have you wake up excited about who you can connect with today because you are showing up as your true authentic self!
