What If You Lost Everything Today?

I recently got asked this question in an interview…

“Andy, If you lost everything today…

All your companies…

All your cars...

All your money…

Do you think you could get it back?”

And without a single doubt…

My answer was…

“EASILY.”

That’s the only piece of me that nobody can ever take away.

Not the companies…

Not the cars…

Not the money…

But the ABILITY to build everything from scratch all over again if I lost everything today.

I know sometimes it gets scary...

I have struggled with this mentally for a long time.

A lot of entrepreneurs struggle with it…

They are scared.

As entrepreneurs, we all run scared.

It’s like here in Missouri, we live in the middle of nowhere.

So when you take the trash out at 11:00 at night…

And you hear some shit in the bushes…

You don’t know what the fuck it is!

So when you go back inside…

You are running as fast as you can!

The same thing happens when we operate as entrepreneurs.

We run scared and we run fast.

But once you get to a point where you are 10-15 years in business…

You’ll realize that you actually know this shit…

And you’re no longer worried about losing anything anymore.

Because you understand it’s not about the level of the game you are at.

It’s about how you play the game.

And if you play the game right…

You will develop the skills and the persistence required to always be successful.

So, regardless of whether you are just starting…

Or you have millions of dollars in sales…

Remember…

It’s not the money that makes you secure…

It’s all about WHAT YOU KNOW.
