Anthony's story provides a great example of what it really means to sink or swim. He lost his job as an electrical contractor when his boss committed suicide during the economic crash. No contractors were hiring and he had bills to pay. He had no choice but to either succeed in making money for himself or crashing and burning. He shares the steps he took to make his story a success. Anthony's experience reminds me of a suggestion in the landmark business book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Hill suggests that in order to be successful you must burn all bridges and leave no retreat in the pursuit of your objective. The idea is that this leaves you with no choice but to succeed.
