Welcome to Episode 184 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast we talk with Andrea d’Agostini, serial entrepreneur, renowned public speaker and successful mentor. Andrea thinks of marketing as a product rather than a service. In fact, he sees marketing as a way to create long-term assets in your business.

In his early career, Andrea was an actor, and he believes that entrepreneurs are really artists “because they have to create their company every day.” You’ll enjoy hearing about Andrea’s fascinating background and how his unique pragmatic approach — including his five-step process of “finding the gaps” — can help businesses of all sizes grow exponentially.

So if you want to know:

  • How an “acceleration diet” can help you scale your business
  • The basics you need for your business to accelerate
  • Why an entrepreneur needs to have a product that benefits society
  • The role “word of mouth” advertising plays in determining the value of a product
  • The importance of investing in yourself in order to scale your business


About Andrea d’Agostini

Andrea d’Agostini started his career as an actor and quickly discovered that the flow of communication you can create through the craft of acting is amazing. Moving from soap operas to TV commercials, Andrea learned that businesses had no idea how to communicate with people. So he started to work in marketing, specifically marketing for the music industry. Today he teaches entrepreneurs and helps companies scale their businesses. On average Andrea’s company can add a million dollars to the bottom line of a business in less than 12 months. With more than 400 companies currently in different stages of execution of his five-step “finding the gaps” process, his clients include start-ups as well as established businesses in industries as diverse as weight loss, dentistry and food and beverage.
