  • yeah there's that line in the movie Wall Street where I think uh the head of the floor puts bud fox and walks him down the floor and he said uh man looks into the abyss, there's nothing, look back looking back at him and that's when man finds his character.

  • And I'm wondering like where do you go Anthony when you have a day like that where it's dark, dark, dark, dark, dark.

  • Like what keeps you out of the abyss?

  • What kept you out of the abyss?

  • So it's interesting, you know, I think you you're born with some levels of resiliency in your personality, but you also uh your life experiences can have a very big impact on you.

  • You know one of the things my dad once said to me, I was complaining about my job at Goldman Sachs.

  • I was a young punk at the time and he was a laborer, he had worked with his hands, he was a crane operator, He looked at me and he said son, you're indoors, you're out of direct sunlight and there's no heavy lifting, You should not be complaining about this job.

  • And I thought about what he said and he was right, you know, we can have a tendency sometimes to be miserable.

  • Uh not really put things in perspective.

  • And so that was very helpful to me.

  • Um I've had fits and starts as an entrepreneur where I've had my series of successes and failures and I knew that the number one thing I needed to do is keep moving, you know, and you got to show up in the morning and so when I was bounced like that and hit as hard as I was, um you can actually look at pictures of me from that time, at least I can and I can see the blow, I can see look in my face and the tenseness of the muscles in my face and the stomach blast that I took as a result of it.

  • And you know, and I know that I'm gritting my teeth through it and I'm hoping like Albert Schweitzer once said this too will pass and of course it did, but it didn't pass on its own.

  • You had to be passed through a good spirit and the goodwill and discipline, Excuse me Yeah, an action to, I mean you kept moving forward and we were talking about it 2.5 years later and you were still willing to talk about it.

  • Um that's even surprising to me, I'm happy to talk about because I think it's very instructive for younger people.

  • I think younger people need to learn from people like us, you can fail, you can make a mistake, but if you go forward, you, you know, there's opportunity and the other thing is be nice to people because let me tell you something Bryant, if I was a mean spirited bully type of a guy and I got hit like that, I would have never been able to rebuild myself the way I have, but by being nice to people, so many people came out of the woodwork to help.

  • So, you know that that that expression that your grandmother talked about where being nice to the people on the way up the ladder, you're gonna meet the same people on the way down, that's 100% true, be nice.

  • Remember, remember that everything is ephemeral.

  • Have you always been nice?

  • Listen, I would like to think so.

  • I mean, in business sometimes you're making hard decisions.

  • I have my scare of haters.

  • Um somebody was doing due diligence on me once and he said, well this is what was said about you, I said, well, okay, but that guy's never worked with me, that guy has never been a client of mine, that guy has never been somebody that was employed in a company that I ran or he never worked alongside of me at Goldman Sachs, I said he doesn't even know who I am, Why don't you go to the people that have actually met me uh and work with me and interacted with me and then you'll get at least if they hate me, then then that's fine, but just hating me from a distance, I don't think is a good due diligence thing.

  • I mean, you know, if you're breaking eggs and you have a forceful personality and you are sharing your opinion.

  • People are gonna dislike you just the way it works.

  • I mean, mother Teresa had her haters, you know, I don't know why, but she did.

yeah there's that line in the movie Wall Street where I think uh the head of the floor puts bud fox and walks him down the floor and he said uh man looks into the abyss, there's nothing, look back looking back at him and that's when man finds his character.
