We had the good fortune of connecting with Armando Hernandez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Armando, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Calculated risks are a critical part of the formula to success in just about any endeavor. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. Scared money doesn’t make money. You have to take risks and be different. If you do the same thing everyone else is doing, you will get the same results. Along the same lines, preparation, hard work and dedication coupled with the vision of being open to opportunity when it comes knocking is elemental. One of the most fruitful experiences in my career came about waiting in line at an ATM and taking a chance to introduce myself to someone and give them my business card, which would dramatically alter the course of things to come.

Mundo Boxing has a core mantra which is “The Family Team.” It symbolizes that the the whole is greater than the individual parts. No one person can triumph alone. It takes a team or even better a family team. It also embodies the values of loyalty, dedication, selflessness, hardworking, genuine care, cooperation, etc. Mundo Boxing is nothing without the collective efforts of The Family Team.
