Turn Your Scars Into Strengths

A guy who got stabbed (nearly to death) while in college is now the CEO of a $100 million+ company.

Does that sound far-fetched?

It gets better.

Andy Frisella is the co-founder of multiple successful real businesses (we’re talking lots of brick and mortar stores as well as a huge online business).

He is the host of the popular MFCEO podcast (yes, it stands for what you think it stands for).

He is a straight-talking, no BS entrepreneur, coach, and leader.

He’s also a big guy – fit, strong, and confident.

So he’s the last guy you’d expect to have lasting nerve damage in his face from being stabbed and disfigured when in his early twenties.

"Give more than you take."  

I met Andy a while ago and we recently spoke at the same event and re-connected.

I’ve always looked up to his wise words backed up by real action.

So when he came on the podcast, I knew he would deliver some solid gold business advice.

What I didn’t know is how deep we would go into the psychological challenges Andy had to overcome after being attacked and disfigured when he was younger — before he was ever successful and people were paying attention to him.

I was really impressed with how he chose to shift his perspective (after battling intense depression) and make powerful results in his life despite the adversity he has faced.

No matter what you have gone through, there’s no excuses for what you can achieve after listening to Andy in Episode 485.

"You've got to be diligent to be consistent."
