A couple of years ago, my dad was a car salesman.
He had a dream of one day buying a new car.
But in the process of doing that, he discovered a lot of people were struggling with the same questions.
What if my kids aren’t going to be car buyers?
What if it doesn’t matter if I buy a car?
I wanted to know more about what it would take to be a self-employed entrepreneur, and what advice I could offer them to get there.
“I had a lot to learn,” he says.
The following week, he called a conference call with the conference organizers.
What follows is an edited transcript of the call, edited for length and clarity.
Andrew Murgatroyd: Hi, Andrew.
What’s your question?
Andrew MacGowan: What do you mean I want to be self-sufficient?
Andrew Mampitt: I mean I wanna be a full-time driver.
Andrew Macgowan: Okay, I got it.
So that’s what you’re asking.
So what can I do?
Andrew McGowan, Managing Director at KPMG, tells me his goal is to help anyone who wants to be in the car business.
“What you want to do is become a full time driver,” he tells me.
“There are a lot more people in this space than ever before.
And it’s going to take a lot less money to do that.
So if you want a job, it’s a lot easier than you think.”
Andrew Macgarth: You’re basically saying you have to start somewhere.
You need to get a business idea, or an idea, and then you need to start driving.
And then you have a couple of months of working on it, and you can move onto the next idea.
And you’ve gotta have the right mindset.
That’s the key.
Andrew Mcgowan, CEO of KPMB.
Andrew, welcome to Business Insider.
Andrew: Thank you, Andrew, for joining us today.
Andrew says the car industry is growing fast and the demand is high.
“If you are a new driver, you have probably never had to work from home,” he explains.
“You need to do a bunch of different things to get your business off the ground, but the most important thing is to get to the point where you can get the job done.” “
What Andrew Mescott has discovered is that there are two types of self-employment: traditional and online. “

What Andrew Mescott has discovered is that there are two types of self-employment: traditional and online.
Traditional is about working on your own.
“The key thing is the mindset,” Andrew says.
“This is a completely different way of working.
It’s not like driving.
You’re not just driving the car.
You are doing the work and then driving back and forth.
It doesn’t involve you actually working from home.
You can be a driver and a consultant, and they are both just like this other person, who is sitting in the back seat. “
That’s the difference.
You can be a driver and a consultant, and they are both just like this other person, who is sitting in the back seat.
But the mindset has changed.
You know, they are just sitting there.
They are just in the front seat.
But what you need is a way of thinking about it that makes it feel like you are actually driving.” “
When you’re driving the vehicle, you’re still driving.
But what you need is a way of thinking about it that makes it feel like you are actually driving.”
Andrew Mascarzo, a partner at KKR, is the head of the automotive consultancy and investment banking division at KSM.
Andrew is also the co-founder of the Startup Car Club, which he co-founded with fellow co-founders and partners.
“For a lot people in the auto industry, this is the dream job,” Andrew explains.
But his advice is simple: Don’t let the dream get in the way of getting the work done.
“It’s not the dream that makes you work, it is the work you are doing,” he adds.
“So the real test of your self-sufficiency is in the work that you’re doing, not in the dreams that you might have.”
Andrew Mcgarth, Managing director at KpmG, says that traditional self-driving is a great way to get started in the industry.
“People who are already in the business, like me, have a much better understanding of the market than people who are new to it,” he argues.
“Because you’re already in this business, you already know what you can expect.”
“But people who aren’t already in that business have a lot better insight.
They understand the risks and the costs of a lot fewer things than a newbie.”
Andrew says that people need to work on their business plan.
“A lot of times people are going to have this concept that they are going into this business with their own car.
