Leadership Tips you'll learn in The Sales Podcast...
Why you don't always need a "Plan B." Andy just pursued his dream, which was to be a SEAL.
Then, after 17 years on active duty, he was shot while deployed to the Middle East and was medically retired...with no Plan B, which put him on a new journey.
And we all know that all new journeys today start with...a Google search, which is where he discovered the average lifespan of a human...and how little and how far he had to go.
He struggled with this realization. He got a lot of his identity from being a SEAL. The boundaries of the military are good and bad.
Was working with a strength training company and this, that, and the other.
Fundraising gave him focus and motivation. His "Man on a Mission" shift lead to more speaking.
He wanted—and wants—to make a difference. Now he can make a bigger difference because of the "Crises in character in our nation" today.
Feel bad and point fingers or look in the mirror and find your purpose.

Put one foot in front of the other.
Success is not luck.
Find your passion and set the example.
Things that are difficult have value.
Life should be hard.
There is no drill instructor in the SEAL teams. It’s his own sense of not wanting to be the weakest link.
Being injured in his mid-20s hit his confidence for a while.
He questioned if he did something wrong.
He was down on himself for a bit.
What flipped the switch for him was realizing the drugs he was on were negatively impacting him and the next day he hit the gym and got after it.
Doctors aren’t always right. Trust your intuition. He had 14 pill bottles and Captain Morgan.
Get physical to manage your energy.
He was contractually obligated to be on social media.
It seems pretentious to have his own website. But he realizes it’s a layer of legitimacy.
You can be phony online or real and honest. He uses his site as a reference. Make it easy for people to find you with their thumbs.
Be real. Post the good and the bad. Don’t live on social media. It’s artificial. It’s a facade of life.
