When Andrea d’Agostini began his career as an entrepreneur, taking strategic risks is what propelled his career forward. But one of the greatest risks he took d’Agostini described as “the first of many that led to some amazing things.”
After transitioning from Italy to the United States d’Agostini was asked to travel around to advise other entrepreneurs just starting out. Though the work was fulfilling as a means to give back to others, the tours began to build an individual brand behind d’Agostini.
How d’Agostini Found his Niche
By 2020, d’Agostini had met and married his business partner, Nicole Tabs. Together the couple strengthened their business partnership and began speaking at events and conferences across the globe. All the while, d’Agostini created with his Co-Founder his own marketing software, SalesJet. Equipped to help smaller companies grow quickly just as he had helped his prior company do, SalesJet is a one-stop tool for effective change.
Through SalesJet, d’Agostini has shared his experiences and lessons on creating marketing campaigns, sharing authentic stories and bolstering businesses. With these tools and valuable lessons, emerging entrepreneurs can learn from d’Agostini to become better equipped to grow their own businesses.
“When I couldn’t find one that was simple and effective enough, I made it for myself and then made it into something anyone else who needed it could use,” he said. “It’s the best of both worlds.”
With time, SalesJet became a cohesive and useful tool for so many entrepreneurs just starting out.
This is How He Does it
To d’Agostini, marketing is not simply a service, but a product that other entrepreneurs need and must learn to wield successfully to be great. That’s why his signature combination of mentorship and marketing helps businesses grow with his guidance and help. For example, a tech-forward weight loss program based in Los Angeles, BodyContourz, was one of d’Agostini’s clients prior to becoming one of the top weight loss businesses in the city and growing from 1 center to 4 in less than 18 months. Now the program is being franchised all over the United States and there’s even an office opening in Europe. Other clients included Viva Concepts, Angel Longevity, Biores, Serendipity Group and many others.
The clients d’Agostini takes on and builds up are those who he believes in. He is proud of the clients and businesses he develops and knows he is helping to create a positive impact through those businesses.
“This is why I’m so selective about the business owners and businesses I work with. I see more and more people trying to just make money without producing anything with the goal of accumulating enough money to just live on a beach. This equates to entrepreneurial suicide,” he said. “The truth is that, as an entrepreneur, you have the responsibility to advance society, better it, innovate, and contribute to it. As an entrepreneur, you are an artist and you should keep in mind that the renaissance you are looking for isn’t going to be built by banks or politicians. It will be you, the entrepreneur, that makes a difference.”
What’s Ahead For d’Agostini
After a wildly successful 2021, d’Agostini is looking forward to mentoring more CEOs and entrepreneurial businesses in the year ahead. He is already thinking of new marketing initiatives to consider and deploy.
“I really, really like people and I love helping them build businesses and ventures that will contribute to their growth,” he said. “I’ve always considered myself to be an artist in one way or another. When I founded my creative production company, I knew that I was on the right path to use my knowledge and experience for the right purposes.”
That’s why d’Agostini is using his creative mind and good business sense to help and empower other entrepreneurs to expand their impact. Paired with the best and brightest clients, d’Agostini sees incredible opportunities ahead.
“Building an agency or an office with thousands of employees isn’t my focus. I like to have a team of ‘marketing and business SEALs’ – people who are the best at what they do – that work to expand CEO’s businesses,” said d’Agostini. “It’s all about accelerating growth for businesses,to equip them to do more of what they do best.”
And with an instructor and leader like d’Agostini, that’s just the beginning.
