When Andy was growing up, he dreamed of figuring out how to live like people he saw on television traveling the world, driving nice cars and living in a big house. Perhaps even more important, he wanted to have the freedom to decide what he was going to do with his time. All he wanted was a shot at that.
After graduating from North Carolina State University, he realized that maybe his dream wasn’t reasonable in the textile industry. He was looking for a way to change that likelihood and he found it through insurance and The Alliance. It didn’t happen overnight, but he tried all kinds of jobs and businesses before he found the answer. Andy kept asking questions of people who were more successful than he was and he learned how to listen and hear what those people were telling him. Andy learned that you had to work hard and give up “stuff” to live the life he wanted. That meant skipping TV shows, ball games, cookouts, etc.
If America had more people that thought about “WE the people” and less that thought about what makes us different than we would be more “UNITED.” There is more power in being united than there is in being divisive. When a group of people gets tight and united, there isn’t a whole lot they can’t accomplish. Patient people that welcome other people to join our team are critical to The Alliance being successful. We have plenty of room for more people to join us. Our job is to find people that want a shot. Our doors are open to people from all walks of life. We are going to be nice to everybody.
At every level in every profession, people make decisions. They also get to decide what they do with their time when they get home in the evening. Some people take it easy and watch TV. Others roll up their sleeves and keep working on their dream. People that move consistently make more things happen. People that chase something with 100 percent effort are more likely to reach their goals than a person that isn’t committed to it with maximum effort.
