At the age of 19, Francesco Vitali, a native Greek, had his first best-seller book with a collection of very juicy and provocative interviews of Greece’s most distinguished celebrities speaking openly for the first time about their sexuality.
“Stars & Sex” becomes multiple times cover pages of the press at that time. Starting as a journalist in Athens, Greece, Vitali worked for several significant national publications and, in parallel, ran a public relation management company for celebrities, politicians, and influential businesses. It was the talk of the country for a long this genius young journalist who was way ahead of his time.
That was also the beginning of a long and upward journey that went beyond the borders of the small country of Greece, crossing the Atlantic ocean with the significant next station, the United States of America.
Francesco did it all. Everything he dreamed and felt. He constantly changed careers and paths, following his dreams with anything he wanted and felt.
From Journalist to Manager of the Stars. From a writer and actor to a successful director and executive producer. A life full of projects and experience led him to become a successful Business advisor and marketing Director for famous brands and entrepreneurs to the late Ivana Trump.
He was one of the closest friends of the very tight circle of Mrs. Trump.
Today Francesco Vitali is a well-respected and successful serial entrepreneur, executive producer, publisher, business advisor, and a self-made multimillionaire with a net worth of more than 100 Million.
His new upcoming book, “Message for Success,” helps aspiring and forthcoming entrepreneurs with daily necessary motivation and inspiration content to develop and adopt a new business mind.
Mr. Vitali, when you started your career in the entertainment industry, have you ever imagined this fantastic journey and Success of yours?
I always knew that every decision I make, even my little choices as to how to respond to the circumstances of my life, will shape my destiny and how my life will turn out. When I started my entrepreneurial journey, I never imagined what to achieve, but I was always anxious and impatient for the next best thing. Because of my vision, it was always the next best thing, and still, as my dearest Ivana used to say, the Best is yet to come.
How do you start your day and stay organized when managing multiple projects simultaneously?
It is a constant try. A routine I always follow to stay focused and on track. First, I meditate every morning, and I follow a little ritual. I am starting my day with a huge THANK YOU to the Universe, God, and Mother Nature. Whatever anyone believes, he needs to start his day with a THANK YOU. For all the blessings we have in our life.
Then I create a daily to-do list and try to achieve as many as possible.
I keep saying that to all my clients, students, and friends. It is essential to start your day thankful and blessed, and it is vital to keep a positive attitude and think positively and manifest. But then YOU HAVE TO DO THE WORK.
Have you ever had to handle a problematic conflict in your career? How did you overcome a crisis?
Well, Success is a very tough road. Full of obstacles and conflicts.
That means you should keep your options open and look at the bright side of things. If something doesn’t go your way, remember it’s a bad day, not a bad life, and it is a bad moment, not the worst problematic conflict of your entire career.
If you mess up one project doesn’t mean you can’t fix things. You can take your time, brainstorm ideas with your team, and try again. Don’t be harsh on yourself. That is what I do. I have gotten this far for a reason, and Success comes to those who don’t throw in the towel.
We must accept that we will experience failures, make mistakes, and feel like giving up. When it gets hard, you must choose whether to commit to your dreams and persist, which is my only option. To be persistent and try harder and fix things.
What I like more about this guy is that he doesn’t go with most coaches to show off in costly cars and villas, declaring how “you will be a millionaire” like him.
He remains humble and down to earth, telling you the obvious. “Learn from my mistakes. I have made millions of errors, and I am offering you this. The treasure of wrong decisions that you will need to avoid.”
He remains a very calm provocative mind, grounded and down-to-earth serial entrepreneur. Francesco doesn’t panic easily. When a crisis happens, and everyone is panicking… “I am looking for the Exit. I stay calm and focused and search for the Exit.”
Vitali strongly believes that everyone can succeed ONLY if they decide and believe it…
“Follow me on the elevator. ” Francesco said and continued, “Forget the stairs. Come and take the elevator with me so you can pass every level and step right to the top together and faster by learning from my mistakes”.
His new book, Message For Success, is launching this April on Amazon and selected bookstores nationwide. A very life-changing and groundbreaking guide and handbook that will motivate entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams and to create a successful career with tenacity and single-mindedness. Vitali believes that “ Our mistakes are lessons, blessings in disguise, and life’s obstacles give us purpose, direction, and meaning”.
