An Influential Moment In A Class Led By Tai Lopez Led To Romeo Gabbana’s Success. Now, He Is An Entrepreneur In The Real Estate And Hospitality Industry

Romeo Gabbana was stuck in a rut in his job. After making the most out of a birthday party and making money to attend college, he dropped out to go run the family business. Unfortunately, this did not work out for him and he was left at a dead end until he discovered a course led by Tai Lopez.
“At age 20 I left my Walmart job and utilized my last $750 to put it into my first b bday event in college.  I made nearly 10k profit from it. I didn’t even expect to go to college. After dropping out of Stephen F. Austin State University in 2015, I moved back home to live with my parents to take over the family business. But unfortunately that didn’t workout. Shortly after that failure, I got hired at a Berkshire Hathaway company. I learned how to communicate more effectively and sharpen my customer service, marketing and sales ability. After a year of working there, I discovered Tai Lopez on the internet, and he shifted my mindset to entrepreneurship, which led me to discover the real estate and short term rental property business. I utilized everything I learned from my 9-5 and implemented it into my own business which now I’ve been doing full time since 2017,” Romeo recounts.
Romeo has been incredibly successful since taking this leap of faith. His biggest challenge thus far has been realizing that he cannot help everyone out there with their own success. He is a people person at heart and is truly trying to help others, not just himself when it comes to his real estate and hospitality businesses.
“The biggest obstacle I had to overcome is that I can’t help everyone as much as I want. As bad as I would like others to be on my same frequency or even higher, I know that I won’t be able to please every customer and partner. Satisfying everyone in business isn’t a possibility. I differentiate myself from my competition by providing outstanding customer service through details and consistency. Also, by ensuring I am constantly updating myself with the new trends and knowledge of the business I’m in,” Romeo explains.
Romeo lives by a simple philosophy that every day is not promised to us. Though we often think that we can do more tomorrow, we are not always sure that that tomorrow will come, so it is crucial to do what we can now in the moment to ensure that our goals are met.
“It is important to understand that everyday isn’t promised. Sometimes we put too much security in tomorrow, next month or even next year. There is power in the now. I hope to inspire others that they can be great and manifest abundance but they have to just start. Lastly, on the other side of uncertainty is prosperity. I believe one should find out something they’re good at and like. Also, do some research on the business that you’re interested in building. Then you just got to start! After you have started and had some minor success I request you seek a credible mentor to help guide you to the next level. Which also I have a new ebook called “Just Start: Overcome Your Fear of Investing” which will be on all platforms soon!” Romeo exclaims.
The other piece of advice Romeo has for those thinking of becoming an entrepreneur is to focus on having a good mindset. Having this and believing in yourself is crucial to getting over the first hurdle of starting a business.
“Mindset is very important! I don’t believe anything can come before how you think! How you see yourself and what you believe is possible for you will determine the actions you take  towards Your business goals. In order to attract a successful business and lifestyle one must maintain a certain frequency. Your mindset will make you or break you in business. There’s a lesson in every loss and a blessing from every breakdown,” Romeo advises.
