    Always believing in myself and having a ' can do' state of mind. Talent and ability in good measure too. When asked, never be afraid to take up a challenge, and take things to the next level for the outcome.

    I'm very focused and driven, I really love my job, and have been very successful and fortunate to have a great team behind me. I want to continue building my relationships and continue to expand my knowledge.

    To be honest I am quite ambitious, so I would be lying if I say I have achieved the success I want, I have not, not yet. In fact I'm a work in progress. But yes, I will achieve it, sooner than later. :)

    Integrity (Google it and that will be me) and my work ethics. Build relationships first whether it be with superiors or associates, customers or clients. Give more than expected especially to a customer or client.

    To answer that question in it's simplest form, i never QUIT, no matter how many problems that came my way. I also believed in giving a very first class service / product second to none. I never believed in competition being a threat since i knew how good the company and service is and the product that is produced. We always stressed details never being over looked and our service being considered the GOLD STANDARD. You must know that our clients demand a premium service and we deliver ABOVEwhat they expect.

    The best advice I have is to network and provide value, and really perfect and pitch your message. If people believe in your story, and you develop those storytelling skills, no matter the product people will follow. I think this is a nice counter to "nice people finish last." I found a passion for languages and helping others that I can't shake. So I'm trying to build those skills to give back.

    I achieved success on my own mostly by never giving up and believing in myself. I first became successful within the fashion industry in New York. I started in an entry level position and eventually became a sales and marketing Director for one of the worlds most renowned Italian luxury brands. When I moved to Florida 12 years ago I ventured into the Real Estate business where I've worked my tail off to get to where I am today.

    You name it & I've done it or at least tried it in business. I'm currently semi-retired with my car business & probably won't ever not do something because I love to make money, but I also play hard!!! It's about Balance

    I had learned early in life, waiting for a paycheck by someone else was not going to work for me, so I decided after coming home from the Viet Nam war I wanted to own a business. Along the way .... accumulative six (6) businesses is where I stopped, at the age of 70. Hard work 24/7, listen to others, and believing in yourself and your skill level is the first step.

    The most important thing in my estimation to be successful is to be willing to do things that others are not willing to do. You are not going to help yourself if you don't help others. Discipline, delayed gratification, a do it now habit, attention to details, treat everyone the same, customers, suppliers, employees, lovers(uhhh, no) and always do the right thing.

    I have had three distinct career tracks. In my 20's I was a computer engineer, mid-career I switched to becoming an international marketing manager for a Fortune 100 company. I became a self-employed real estate developer and real estate investor and consultant as my last career change. I have been extremely successful in all career paths. I am currently semi-retired, meaning I work when and if I want . I spend much of the year traveling for pleasure now as opposed to for business.

    My mother grew up on a farm and then became a lpn nurse. She always worked 16 hour a day and made sure me and my sisters where provided for.She always made sure that I got out of bed and kept busy either working or doing something. At 9 I started a business and by the time I was 16 I was making more money than my parents I got my driver's license and fucked up then by just wanted to play and got in trouble. My Dad did the only thing he could do put me in the us army. Well that sucked so I saved every penny. When I got out in 85 I started my company. I got a jump on the competition by growing up in south Florida l saw a zero turn Mower a dixie chopper.I ordered 1 from magic circle corporation in 87 and drove all the competition out of business because of the technology I had.I made my first million before 95. Threw working all the time and thinking intelligently I've amassed my small fortune.
