From a young age, Phillip Viccinelli knew he wanted to control his own destiny. He didn’t want to work for others. So he trusted his instincts and ventured on his own, again and again. A longtime personal friend of Greg Stephens, Phillip joins this episode to share his story of always taking that leap of faith into new opportunities.

Starting out doing landscape and selling products to the clients he found himself, he shifted into real estate and later owned laundromats. Finding success in selling his businesses to former employees, he wanted to pay that opportunity forward to the people he hired and trusted.

Through lots of trial and error, Phillip learned how to hire teams he could trust and how to grow businesses. And despite the failures along the way, the journey is always worth it.

3 Key Takeaways

  • Trust your instincts. Pursue new opportunities that come your way, don’t wait around for something to happen.
  • Pay it forward in business. Of course, you’re in it to make money, but that doesn’t mean it can’t mutually benefit others as well.
  • Work hard and build relationships of trust around you.
