Salvatore Virzi has taken his passion and expertise forward and has done what other entrepreneurs cannot even think of doing. Today, he shares his thoughts on educating young entrepreneurs on why they need to start early in their life.
1. Could you please tell us about your humble self?
I’m Salvatore Virzi, a loving husband to Calogera Malaponti and a doting father to Edoardo Virzi. Talking about my hobbies and interests, I am a big foodie & I love to travel and explore different places in the world. Besides all this, I also love photography.
2. Apart from all other professions, why did you choose to become an entrepreneur?
Frankly speaking, I am passionate about achieving my goals. So, I would prefer to work towards them instead of putting my efforts into achieving someone else’s goals. That’s why I chose to become an entrepreneur.
3. What are your suggestions for today’s youth?
My advice for the youth of today who are looking to start their own businesses is to stop wasting your time and focus on whatever you’re doing. Do everything to the best of your capabilities and try to improve yourself at all levels. Do not refrain from making mistakes because eventually, mistakes will lead you on the road to success.
4. Please share your journey with us?
Whatever I have achieved in my life is because of my hard work and dedication. I started from scratch, faced many obstacles, and thankfully my hard work bore fruitful results.
5. What keeps you motivated?
I believe that challenges come at every stage of life. Rather than fearing them or running from them, you must grow with the flow and never run from challenges. However, if you feel exhausted, you must take a break for some time but never give up on your dreams.
6. Could you briefly tell us what made you successful as an entrepreneur?
My journey was not so smooth. There were a lot of obstacles I encountered along the way. But the best guidance and support from my mentors have helped me succeed in my journey. I constantly learn from each and every person.
7. Do you think there is any formula or a set way to become a successful entrepreneur?
I don’t believe there is any way or pattern for individuals willing to become entrepreneurs. But, I do believe that you need to have a strong vision, passion, and resilience. If you want to succeed in your journey, you really need to believe in yourself and the direction you’re going.
You must focus clearly on what you want to achieve. Initially, you might fail along the way, but you must have the confidence to get up and get back in the game.
8. According to you, what are the most crucial elements an individual needs for running a successful business?
According to me, a strong vision, knowledge, and experience are the fundamentals for running a successful business.
9. What helps you keep moving forward in the hardest times?
My goals. I personally believe that most people feel unmotivated in life because they don’t have goals or their goals aren’t strong enough. It reminds me of a famous quote by Grant Cardone, “Have goals so big that your problems pale in comparison.”
10. How do you measure success?
For me, success is enjoying the freedom that results from maximizing your potential.
11. What piece of advice would you give to someone who wants to succeed in their field?
If you wish to succeed in life, you must always keep learning. Moreover, you must also learn from your experience. You cannot taste success unless you encounter obstacles and failures in that field. Start your journey now to experience success.
