Andrew had a chat with Mike Morawski of The Insider Secrets Podcast.

Key takeaways:

  • Andrew describes himself in one word as “Relentless”.
  • I grew up in outside of Cleveland, Ohio in a little town called Hudson, Ohio.
  • I started going off the rails with drugs and alcohol.
  • And basically at the age of 11 was when I started getting high pretty consistently.
  • I stabbed my father in the hand with scissors and spent a couple of weeks in jail.
  • At the age of 16 or 17, I tried to kill myself. I saw a friend of mine going to rehab so I also went for rehab.
  • I landed in Thailand with $2,000 in my pocket and no language skills, don’t really know anybody. I closed all my bank accounts. I sold my car. I had no assets in the US.
  • I taught finance at university and then after one year of teaching that I realized that I’m never going to make any money being a teacher in Thailand.
  • When we are young, we have black and white, we see things in black and white.
  • Think of creating wealth, and growing wealth as two separate things. You create wealth through your business. And you grow wealth through the stock market or through your investments.
