Although I have recently published several posts on financial investments, I would like to point out that in the vast majority of cases, those who try to make money through speculation, usually end up without even two pennies to rub together.

Money, from what I have understood in my life, depends on:

- Your true motivation. Which is not to make money, but to add value to people. To make a difference in their lives.

- Your desire to help others. Those who have a lot of money are willing to help others for free (and this was true even before they had a lot of money). Meanwhile, those who do not have a cent to their name will only help if they can see a profit or salary in it for them.

- A fanatic and artistic pursuit of perfection, of greatness. My dear friend Daniele Beretta, who is one of the most experienced ergonomics in Italy, rightly states that "the search for perfection in the details brings you closer to God ..."

- How easily you light up and get excited about the little things. How many times in your life you find yourself saying "That's great!" (several times a week = a lot of money, a few times a month = underpaid work). If it's all just a big game, you’ll find yourself working a lot of hours and yet still having a load of fun without ever getting tired. Have you ever seen a child get tired playing their favorite game?

- The people around you. If you're always the smartest in the room, you have a problem. It’s also a problem if you find yourself surrounded by sad people, etc., etc.

- How good you are at selling, organizing, hiring, marketing, and managing people. Paradoxically, knowledge about all these things is available for everyone. You can learn it from me or, somewhat more limited, from one of many former colleagues (some of whom are really very good), who studied at my school and then branched off on their own. But this isn’t the hardest part. The points at the top of the list are.

Ultimately, I think that every human being has been born to be rich, and possesses their own unique and fantastic road to greatness and wealth. To follow it, you must rediscover yourself, work on yourself, and remember to listen to your own voice. Money is more a product of the heart, rather than the wallet.

Financial investments, on the other hand, will come after. When you begin to accumulate your first riches. After all, you will certainly have to manage your portfolio and make it grow: investments, real estate, bonds, annuities, etc. etc.

However, if you try to accumulate wealth without first starting your personal path to greatness, without listening to your voice and embarking on the brave road of self-transformation as described above, then you will find that all attempts to "do business" will only make you "tougher" rather than more spiritual. You will only accumulate additional doubts and self-criticisms. You’ll end up thinking things like "I’m just not fit for business", etc., etc.

You need to follow YOUR path to greatness. Start from your heart and it will take you through your own personal transformation.

I started listening to mine many years ago.

25 years ago I was a salesman, and I would never have imagined ending up at TEDx talking about how to change the world.

I have achieved great satisfaction in my career: personally, professionally, and financially. Much more than I expected. Now is the time to dedicate myself to other people.

I've achieved what I set out to. Now I have to help you. Thanks for the help you all have given me.

And incidentally, my success is not really mine but a sign of the times: it is a sign that there is a new motivated business class that is successful but, above all, also contributes to society. They don't just want to make profits, but they also want to change the world. For the better.

I will always be in debt to these people.

Make meaning, not money


I have met thousands of entrepreneurs and known extraordinary companies. Many of them have focused on improving their product or service. But whatever your business is, whatever sector you compete in, you have to have a strong desire to create meaning. You have to create a deep change in the world with your business.


Always ask: How do I make a difference in the lives of my clients? How does my product / service manage to solve a problem in their everyday lives?


I assure you that money is just a natural consequence of answering this question.


Google has democratized information. The goal was to have all the information available on a single computer. Google, in this sense, has changed the world.


Youtube has democratized videos. Anyone can create a video easily and for free. Youtube offers a place to express yourself and communicate through the videos.


Ebay has democratized business. Anyone can sell anything they want to get rid of, without obstacles, without barriers. In a few minutes. Today, thanks to Ebay, we can do business with anyone in the world.


I-Tunes and Amazon have democratized the publishing industry. Today anyone can write a book and publish it.


Facebook has made contact with people, helping us all keep in touch with the old friendships as well as establish new ones.


Whatsapp has changed the way we communicate, with its brevity, its speed.


I could give hundreds of example. What does your business do? How can you change the world?



Jump to the next arc


What's the next arc in your industry?


Each product follows an arc: it is born, established, and then disappears. Here's an example. The ice industry at the beginning of the eighteenth century was based on the collection and transport of ice. Taking ice to where it was needed, in places where there was demand. Then came the companies that specialized in ice production. The next arc was the invention of the fridge.


In the telephone industry, Alcatel did not anticipate the arc of the mobile. Nokia and Motorola have been unable to grasp the evolution of the smartphone.


What is the next arc in the industry where you work? Do you understand the importance of asking this question?


Companies fail to skip over to the next arc because they define themselves based on what they do and don't take into account the driving purpose behind what their business actually produces. Alcatel built telephones, but lost sight of the fact that they were supposed to be meeting a very basic need: to help people communicate.



Marketing and sales merge


When a consumer decides to buy something these days, they go into the transaction already know what to expect. People learn everything they need to know on the web. They don't just go on the web anymore, they live on the web. The purchasing process is largely based on information available on the internet. That is where every individual forms their own opinions about your business.


What information is there about you? A company is only as good as its online content.



The ideas are already there, what's missing is the connection


You have to get in the flow. You have to lose yourself to your passion. Reach that mental state where creativity comes naturally, without you even realizing what you're doing. Because the ideas are already there. You just have to follow your instinct, your intuition, to remember the dreams you had when you first started out. Get back your enthusiasm and let yourself be driven by your spirit. Find the connection.

A special thank you note from a participant of the Sofia Sales Intervention 2. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing someone achieve that "I get it now!" moment.

Great Mr. Ruggeri, thanks!
I've focused on your advice: to be curious about their work and just listen. This is a great way to get them engaged in a conversation, that I used to disregard in continuous contacts, I must confess.
Now I am back on the right track with enthusiastic customers :)
Thank you for your great guidance!

One of the most common phrases we hear from struggling entrepreneurs every day is "I don't have enough time".

There are only 24 hours in a day (and to stay healthy you really should be spending at least part of that time eating and sleeping), but if you run your own business sometimes even a 50 hour day doesn't feel like enough, especially if you're trying to fill several different roles at once! 

Believe it or not, there is a simple solution: Delegation

Delegation means to authorize someone to take action in your place, and is a neccessary skill for any entrepreneur who wants to stay healthy and sane, let alone be successful.

With this in mind, we have decided to help you start the new year off right with a FREE EBOOK, teaching you exactly what you can do to make sure you successfully use delegation to it's maximum potential: 

  • What you should (and shouldn't) delegate

  • Who you should delegate to

  • Troubleshooting for when delegation doesn't seem to be working

  • What steps to follow in the delegation process

  • and much more...

Yesterday I delivered a presentation in Skopjie, Macedonia, to a group of local managers and business owners regarding how to grow when the economy is tough. Here are the nine strategies I shared: 

1) Handle the Internal Reasons: when in a slump do not justify it away, handle the internal causes

2) Get out of your comfort zone: you generate value only when you display courage

3) Embrace marketing: build a nice story around your product. Find out something in which you are unique. 

4) Write your long term goals and stick to them

5) Find a conspirator, a person of equal capabilities with whom you can build your company 

6) Rethink the sales process 

7) Expand on international markets: it will give you the strengths, energy and ideas to be more efficient also at home 

8) Manage time: do today the things that will make a big difference tomorrow. Do not get caught up in busy work

9) Study! Improve yourself.

Here is today's presentation on Leadership that I delivered in Birmingham.

The main message, in order to build a great business and not be managed by your company, you should:


a) FIRST WHO, THEN WHAT: who are the great people you really would like to work with? That's the first step of any great strategy.


b) LOOK AT BRUTAL FACTS OF YOUR SITUATION: Leadership doesn't start with someone having a vision but with someone who starts to confront the brutal facts of his or his business situation.


c) FIND OUT IN WHAT YOU CAM BECOME THE NUMBER ONE IN THE WORLD AND FOCUSED ON THAT


d) MANAGE TIME WISELY: people dont have time when someone else or even their companies are setting their priorities.


e) PAY ATTENTION ALSO TO THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF LIFE (AND BUSINESS). COMPANIES WITHOUT A SOUL DO NOT LAST LONG.


Slides of my presentation are attached.
