We had the opportunity to speak with Francesco Vitali about his new book and his insights on entrepreneurship. 

Q: Mr. Vitali, thank you for the interview opportunity. Can you tell us about your experience with failure and how it has impacted your success as an entrepreneur?

FV: Failure is an inevitable part of the entrepreneurial journey, and I’ve certainly experienced my fair share of setbacks and challenges. In fact, I have failed multiple times. However, I’ve always viewed failure as an opportunity to learn and grow rather than a reason to give up. It is the bridge that leads you to success. It helps you to reflect on what went wrong and how you can improve in the future rather than dwelling on the negative. Failure has taught me resilience and perseverance, which have been crucial to my success as an entrepreneur.

Q: How do you balance your personal life with your professional pursuits?

FV: Balancing personal and professional life can be challenging (laughing loud), but it’s essential for maintaining overall well-being and happiness. I prioritize self-care and make time for activities I enjoy outside work, such as spending time with family and friends, exercising, and pursuing hobbies. I also consciously disconnect from work and technology during designated personal time.

Q: Do you constantly surround yourself with business-oriented people, even in personal moments?

FV: Not really. The opposite. I’m a very different person in my personal life. I desire the presence of cherished companions whose voices resonate deeply within me. In their enchanting discourse, we shall fervently explore the realms of poetry, literature, cinema, music, and theater. Our harmonious cadence shall fill the void, infusing it with a delicate interplay of wisdom, passion, and heartfelt viewpoints, creating a captivating ambiance adorned with the gentle whispers of affectionate expression.

Q: Wow, this is so romantic and poetic, If I could say. Do you believe Romance exists in our time?

FV: Well, I’m Greek-Italian / American. You can’t expect less. (laughing). Undoubtedly, Romance is a timeless concept that has been around for centuries and will continue to exist. However, how it is expressed and experienced has evolved in our modern times. While grand gestures and romantic letter writing may have been the norm in the past, today, Romance can be found in the small, everyday moments that we share with our loved ones. In essence, it is the thought and effort behind the gesture that makes it romantic, not necessarily the magnitude of it.

Take, for instance, the example of a date at McDonald’s. While it may not seem like the epitome of Romance, it can be just as meaningful and memorable as a fancy restaurant dinner. The fundamental lies in the intention behind the date, the effort put into the planning, and the connection made during the meeting. You can feel Romantic in any setting and activity if it is approached with sincerity and a desire to connect.

Moreover, with the advent of technology, Romance has taken on new forms. Online dating and digital communication have opened up new avenues for romantic connection, allowing people to connect and build relationships in ways that were not possible before. However, it’s important to note that these technologies are simply tools that facilitate connection, and the real essence of Romance lies in the human connection that is made.

Q: How hard was your journey in the United States during the first few years? 

FV: Living in Greece since childhood, I always dreamed about America and everything it represents. The land of the free, the home of the brave. The American Dream was a beacon of hope, a promise of opportunity that called to me from across the ocean.

When I finally arrived in the United States, I was not disappointed. From the moment I stepped onto American soil, I felt the energy and spirit of freedom. I felt a sense of belonging and pride in being part of the great American nation.

Of course, my journey in the United States was challenging. Adapting to a new culture, learning a new language, and building a new life from scratch was difficult. But every obstacle was met with determination and perseverance, fueled by the free spirit of this great nation.

Through hard work and dedication, I was able to achieve my dreams and make a life for myself. And I know that this is possible because of the enduring promise of America that no matter who you are or where you come from, you can succeed if you work hard and believe in yourself.

I am grateful for the opportunities and freedoms that the United States has provided me. I am proud to be a part of this great nation and am committed to giving back to the country that has given me so much.

America still is a place where dreams can come true, and anything is possible if you have the courage and determination to pursue it.

Q: Can you discuss your approach to leadership and how it has evolved?

FV: Certainly. My approach to leadership has evolved significantly throughout my career. In the early days, I was more hands-on and tended to micromanage, believing this was the most effective way to ensure success. However, as I gained more experience and worked with a wider variety of people, I realized that this approach could have been more sustainable and effective in the long run.

As a result, I began to focus more on delegation and trust, recognizing that true success comes from empowering others to take ownership of their work and contribute to the team’s overall goals. I strive to create a culture of trust and empowerment within my team, where everyone feels valued and heard and is free to explore their ideas and approaches.

Successful leadership is not about being the most knowledgeable or skilled person in the room but rather about creating an environment where everyone can thrive and contribute their unique perspectives and strengths. As such, I actively seek out and listen to the opinions and insights of others, valuing their input as much as my own.

Ultimately, there is no leader without a team, and the success of any endeavor relies on the collective efforts of all involved. By fostering a culture of trust, empowerment, and collaboration, I aim to create a work environment where everyone can strive for excellence and achieve their full potential.

Q: What is your favorite quote from the book, and why?

FV: That’s a tough one! The book has many great quotes, and each one resonates with me differently. However, if I had to choose, I would say my favorite quote is, “Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that count” by Winston Churchill. This quote encapsulates the importance of perseverance and resilience in facing challenges and setbacks, which have certainly been a significant part of my entrepreneurial journey.
