TPM 020 : Gaining Belief and Confidence in Yourself with Andy Gersbach
In this week’s episode, I got to sit down with Andy Gersbach. He’s an Agent with New York Life who built a business in finance through confidence and a strong belief. He had spent many years working a corporate job, performing essentially the same tasks for less money than he is making now.
The first thing that I found interesting was that there were jobs that a company would pay you to do, that you could also just…do on your own, outside of the company. Not only that, but if you played your cards right, you could make a pretty good living performing that same job, only for yourself. Not to say that working for someone else is bad, but it’s just cool that this option is there for some positions.
It was interesting hearing his perspective on numbers and finance, especially since I’ve never really been one to gravitate towards anything related to mathematics. I love it when I find someone who’s passionate about something that I’m really bad at. Hearing them talk about it makes me feel just a little bit smarter by proximity.
I love how he emphasized belief in yourself. Belief and confidence in yourself, I feel are two things that are so often downplayed compared to technical knowledge. I really can’t stress this enough, if you got nothing else from this episode, please build your belief in yourself.
No matter what you want to accomplish in life, be it start your own business, find your dream job, or even if it’s finding your significant other- you have to have a strong belief in yourself. Believe that you can, and you can begin to take the actions needed to see it through.
