“For many people who are just starting out, first learn the lingo. Learn the language of the business. Second is build the team that goes along with it because you’re not going to do all this yourself.” – Agostino Pintus
“Learn how to sell. Because this is a sales business. And you have to get in front of people to tell them about the benefits. Tell them what it means to them.” – Agostino Pintus
“It’s not about you. No one cares about your needs. It’s about them. How can you help me? That’s what people want to know. If you go and say, I need this, and I need that. No one cares, right? No one cares about what you need.” – Agostino Pintus
“How do you protect that cash? That’s their problem. You have the solution. Your solution is to invest it into a cash-flowing asset real estate and get all the tax benefits that go along with it.” – Agostino Pintus
