 Takeaways: 

 What is your idea of prosperity?

  • Looking through the financial lens of prosperity, I’ve never really loved what money stood for but for what it was able to enable.
  • I always loved the idea of having money... to not have to worry about money... and knowing that if I do have money, I can do whatever want.
  • Andrew believes that ultimately people pursue happiness with money. But some times, we miss out on conversations and the things that could make us really happy. And that can cause us to lose connection with the moment. Thus, not being present.
  • He believes that only looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow instead of looking for the rainbow will deter you from big picture happiness. He wants to help you to focus on the moments you live along your journey.

It’s lonely at the top 

  • Most people believe it’s lonely at the top because CEO’s don't want to share the light.
  • I may not always know the answer, but I can help guide you.
  • Being able to talk about failure is essential to growth.
  • In the chaos triangle, the bottom right is the problem and the bottom left is our solution.
  • We have to believe in ourselves. That belief is what will help us gain a solution because it gives us faith.
  • Life comes with ups and downs and the more you can accept that the more you can navigate through it with more grace and ease.
  • Acceptance guides the fact that it’s just a moment, that this too will surpass.
  • When life becomes too comfortable, we stop becoming a problem solvers. but
  • When you live a little on the edge, you realize you're alive. And though everything may not be good you can be okay.

Managing Stress

  • When managing stress, you have to tell yourself... Go in! Get in there! Have this tough conversation, pull this apart!
  • Sometimes it takes you breaking it and putting it back together to figure out your next step. Or that maybe rebuilding, isn’t needed to be put back together at all.
  • Getting a good night's rest, eating well, exercising are all really good in helping to manage stress - allowing yourself to put good into your body while being fully aware of the bad.
  • Accepting mindfulness, meditation, yoga and allowing yourself to have fun/let go really helps to ease stress and come down from all that has happened.

What ways do you have fun?

  • Andrew and his friends drove to Alaska and turned their phones off, allowed themselves to indulge in the sensory, cook, laugh and talk and really just take a break.
  • Football, every week.
  • On a trip to New Zealand, a few of his best buds played games, played ball and just enjoyed company.
  • On another note, Andrew took over a restaurant with a few of his best friends to create a restaurant experience. One group creating appetizers, one group creating desserts, etc...
  • Everyday is another day to experience, to grow, to have fun and breakthrough.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received / Best advice you wish you were told

  • "The best advice I ever received was to go out and get business experience." During this time, Andrew accidentally created his own business, which he learned to adore and admire as if it were his own child. He also learned how to stay eager and ambitious. This is something he wishes someone would have told him early.
