Andy Cohen has successfully climbed the media latter from CBS News intern to host and executive producer of Bravo’s late night show, “Watch What Happens Live.

Additionally, Cohen is an executive producer of the network’s popular and expansive “Real Housewives” empire, hosts and produces pop culture nostalgia series “Andy Cohen’s Then & Now,” and is set to host the upcoming revival of “Love Connection.

“I the thing that’s always gotten me to the next level is passion and excitement that’s genuine and authentic for whatever I’m doing,” Cohen told Business Insider. He says that positivity and passion for a brand or a job can translate into confidence without stinking of arrogance and unseemly self-assuredness.

Following is a transcript of the video:

ANDY COHEN: I think for me, the thing that’s always gotten me to the next level is passion and excitement that’s genuine and authentic for whatever I’m doing. And I think that that can be infectious and appealing to people, if you really are excited and confident about your brand or your job or your organization or what you’re doing.

And I think that that’s — I think that positivity and passion kind of translates sometimes into confidence and having your s— together even though you may not. And that’s a good thing.

How do you be persistent without being annoying? I don’t know if I know the answer to that, because you’re dealing also with someone else’s mood and you can’t control that.

Because if you keep coming at someone, and they want no part of it, then — but if they see something in you that
they want to help, then they will.

I think there might be some charm that goes in there, and some pluck, and some luck. Which is why you just also have to keep trying.
