Francesco Riviera (@francescoriviera_) is a dropshipping coach and digital entrepreneur from Italy. He’s been in the online business space for years and has some advice for entrepreneurs that are just getting started.
Advice From An Expert Entrepreneur
Riviera’s number one piece of advice for entrepreneurs is to never give up. According to Riviera, many of the students he works with expect to get results right away, which almost never happens. He says, although it’s possible for a beginner to make money online, they have to work a lot harder than veteran entrepreneurs in order to succeed.
Riviera’s next piece of advice is not to be afraid of judgment. When people first get started with an online business, they tend to tell all of their friends and family. Riviera says that it’s ok for new entrepreneurs to share their excitement with others, but warns that it can lead to judgment and negativity. He is lucky to have friends and family who believe in him and support his decisions. However, this is not the case for everyone. He says that online business is not always recognized as a “real” business and that many people will take a while to come around to it.
New Concepts For New People
While Riviera believes that entrepreneurs should not fear judgment, he encourages new business people to refrain from sharing their ideas with others until their business has achieved success. He recognizes that earning money online may be a new concept for some people; however, he feels there is great potential in online business, even comparing it to the industrial revolution and the railroad business.
Riviera believes that people who can quickly adapt to the new world of online business will be successful. He feels that he has the skillset to do so, as he developed a passion for learning about the internet at a young age, using computers whenever possible.
Taking Advantage Of Advertising
Riviera took advantage of Facebook’s advertising program when it first started. He saw the potential early on, giving him an advantage in learning how to use the advertising platform.
To become a master of his craft, Riviera studied with business coaches learning the different aspects of marketing and creating a reliable workflow. Above all, Riviera learned that without the skills of maximizing productivity and streamlining workflow, an entrepreneur is destined to fail.
Riviera maximizes his productivity by using the Pomodoro Technique which is a time management strategy. It involves breaking up the workday into 25-minute blocks and taking five-minute breaks between each block.
Riviera’s favorite part of coaching is teaching people to support themselves using dropshipping. He says that the internet has made it possible for anyone to create wealth regardless of where they come from.
Riviera wants to leave behind a legacy of greatness by helping people achieve their goals and transforming their mindsets.
