Crash & Learn: All Aboard Properties CEO Life Lessons

Updated: Sep 19, 2022

I had the pleasure of interviewing All Aboard Properties CEO Mr. Andy Clark twice within the past year. The second time was at Halifax Hospital when he gave me a copy of his book, Crash & Learn: A true story of surviving a plane crash and financial crisis.

The book and Hospital are related.

Mr. Clark had a horrific plane crash in 2009 when he attempted an emergency landing at Daytona Beach International Airport. His father was with him. It didn't end well for either.

As you may recall, in 2009, the United States of America was in a deep recession. As I wrote in the above-referenced second interview, Mr. Clark did not have health insurance. The Great Recession had forced him to drop his coverage, leaving him short the money needed to pay his hospital bill. Halifax worked with him on a payment plan.

A plane crash that resulted in a near-death experience plus a family business taking hits from the recession forced Mr. Clark to change his outlook on life and how the business operated.

This book details the lows he experienced, the lessons learned, and the philosophies he adopted as a new way of life.

The only knock I would give is a repeated spelling error. Yoke v. Yolk.


Neither Mr. Clark nor his co-author Mr. Sean Donovan noticed that the plane's instrument is spelled yoke, they consistently (every time?) spelt it yolk.

Nevertheless, I recommend the book.

Please like, comment, share!

See ya soon!
