This is an episode that you just have to listen to! We ask Antonio about how he's reached the position he's in, the Real Housewife tea, how he started his own business, and so much more!
So how did he become so successful at 21 years old? At his age a lot of people are out partying, half-failing classes, and having fun, not working their butts off. It is not easy!
It is SO important to remember that success is not handed to you. You have to work hard to reach true success. (If you're lucky and got it handed to you, then keep going!)
The first step Antonio took was to build his business, Unfiltered PR.
He then began to build his name, and reputation. It was important for him to be himself and be honest. One helpful tip to know is, your name is your reputation, so make sure your social media is perfect, don't post what you don't want people to associate you with.
It wasn't easy, he had to sacrifice A LOT. People around him were doing "typical" stuff for his age, while he worked to build himself. He had to give up so many freedoms. But, It was all worth it in the end.
Some other important things he did were: networking, staying relevant, going to fundraisers, talking with people, taking internships, social media. While his friends were out at bars, he was talking with people twice his age at social events. While people were posting pictures with bottles of alcohol, he kept his social media pristine. He took internships to build up his work portfolio. He worked HARD.
His job comes with a lot of positives, but also negatives. He gets to make his own schedule, and not work a typical 9-5 job, but at the same time, he'll have clients calling him at 3 AM. Overall, he's living proof that if you truly love what you do, you never work a day in your life.
Seriously, just tune in to the episode right now! You won't regret listening to this one.
