Quotables from Andy Dé:

07:16 – “I think people from the country I come from, India, have done extremely well, right? We are the most educated, the most qualified and successful ethnic minority group, right. With the CEOs of Microsoft and Google and, you know, Adobe and countless other companies. So I think that has helped, it has helped drive the brand perception of people that look like me. And I think it has paved the way… it has opened up doors, it has broken through the glass ceiling where people that look like me are making it to the, you know, to the C-suite.”

30:38 – “I think striking that balance from a life perspective, getting help, don’t try to do it all on your own, right? If you are, if you are a marketing professional or you are a product professional, that doesn’t automatically make you a great investment expert, right? So like everything else, take the reach out, find good investment advisors who can advise, who can craft a strategy, get the right balanced portfolio for you, and then help you maintain and grow, right? And, create your wealth.”

31:50 – “If you have a principle of I won’t keep debt, I won’t have debt, then you’ll be less tempted to do that “Buy now, pay later”. Because you’re standing for something in a small adage. If you don’t stand for something, you’re gonna fall for anything.”

32:03 – “You’re going to do the buy now pay later, because you don’t have the cash right now. But you’ll want the thing. So instant gratification, you’re going to buy it. But what’s going to happen is that’s called debt. And if you do that more and more and more, you could fall into the trap where you’re o you know, you’re over your head and then an emergency happens. Yeah. Where you actually need money, then you have to take out a loan or something.”


Lavall: “One thing that I loved in that, that was in there too, is like you took it upon yourself to write it and publish it, and yes. And so your willingness to work is really what, really what set that apart.”

Andy: “Exactly. You have to hold extra mile. There are no shortcuts, right? Absolutely. And especially, again, if you’re a minority person, you have to go the extra mile.”

Lavall: “Absolutely.”

Andy: “You get, you have to get to a point where no one can question why you are at the table or why you are at the room, right?”
