Mindset of a Millionaire, with Giuseppe Cicorella

Mindset of a Millionaire, with Giuseppe Cicorella

Episode 285:

Born the son of peasants, Giuseppe Cicorella was a child who clearly understood his dreams, decidedly ambitious and different from those of all the others. Born in Conversano, a small town in the southern Italian region of Puglia, Giuseppe had his first work experiences as a child and tried his hand at any type of activity, showing a flair for business.


At the age of 17, he moved to Milan. From there he approached the real estate sector, which became his greatest passion. After having practiced entrepreneurial activities in Italy for over 25 years, he found himself in conflict with a system, the Italian one, which did not allow him to grow as he would like. In 2015 he decided to move to the United States, and this is where his rise in American real estate begins. Giuseppe went from sleeping in a telephone booth to increasing his wealth, living the experience of sleeping again in a car in the USA, never giving up, and finally becoming a successful millionaire.
