Who am I?
My name is Deniero and I was born in Rome, Italy. I grew up an only child, and since when I was a little kid, I couldn’t see myself working and growing old in the same neighbourhood I was born.
Growing up as an only child was not easy because I often felt understimulated and bored. My grades were below average, and although I was the class clown, I didn't necessarily feel connected to a lot of people.
I remember feeling inadequate and out of place at most social events and, to mask that discomfort, I would act like a fool and try to make everyone laugh.
When I was twenty years old, I was in a very dark place. I wasn't in school, I had no job, and I was hanging out with a very toxic crowd. During that time my best friend passed away after a quick 6-month battle with cancer, and I was left with a bunch of memories and no plans for my future.
That's when I decided to pack up my bags and move to Toronto, Canada. My new life was an adventure from day one. I didn't speak the language, and I still felt out of place, but I knew this was going to be a clean slate for me. I picked up random jobs (some of them pretty dangerous actually!!!), and I started going to College. Within a couple of years of living outside my comfort zone, my boost in confidence allowed me to start organizing events for thousands of people and to start DJing in the city and producing electronic music. I was finally living my best life, and all it took was for me to go for it.
As time went by though, my dreams evolved. I wanted to combine my old Italian life and my Canadian one. Initially, my dream was about freedom. I wanted to create a location-independent business to be close to my family in Rome while still enjoy my Toronto life.
As time progressed and my new goals were becoming a reality, I realized that there was so much more I could have offered the world. I had spent thousands of hours on books, courses, client phone calls, sales meetings, motivational events, masterminds, import-export fares and much more. I was slowly becoming a point of reference for my friends when it came to online business and entrepeneurship.
I had finally found my purpose: helping other people succeed in this crazy world. People that struggled with motivation, consistency, lack of knowledge or lack of vision. Other people just like myself.
We all have dreams but, sometimes, we are too quick to discard them since they are "impossible" or "too hard to achieve." With my blogs and my content, I want to show you that the opposite is true. Believing in yourself and making things happen is not easy by any means, but by setting up some winning habits in your life, you can achieve success by simply walking your path.
