Albert Scaglione speaks to StartupNation Radio about Park West Gallery
“If you have the passion and you have this unique special thing that you feel you need to bring along,” he said. “That’s when it really starts.”
The show focused on how people can become successful entrepreneurs. Scaglione told the radio hosts that success can be measured by the amount of money someone makes, but believes there is more to it than a dollar amount.
“If you never make a huge amount of money, but you’re living your life the way you really love to live it, and you operate out of your home with independence and freedom and with the ability to produce the best you can produce, satisfying your own self internally, you’ve got it all.”
He cautions that the “road to success is a road strewn with failure,” but the key is to have fast failures, meaning people should try things and experiment, and if they fail, move onto the next idea or phase. Overall, he says the biggest aspect of being an entrepreneur is to work hard.
