Who is Dominick Pirone?

To help understand who I am, you need to understand the pivotal turning point in my life.

I remember it vividly. I was in High School at the time. I got on the scale in the bathroom and weighed in at 250 pounds. It was the result of 1000’s of hours in front of a computer screen gaming online – and not taking care of myself. You’re lucky I can’t find a picture of myself from that time because I was not at all the guy I am now. And I was a little fugly.

Some kind of serious light went off when “2-5-0” registered that this was not cool. Things had gotten out of control. It wasn’t just the weight. It was other things I wasn’t proud of: Smoking pot, secrets from the folks, no girlfriend to speak of and not really doing anything for anybody.

At that moment, I committed to weight loss and a healthy lifestyle – and getting a really cute girlfriend. I went on to lose 75 pounds in two years and gain several girlfriends. Haha! Success.

Sort of. But I realized that any problem could be overcome (because the weight issue was a huge one for me on top of being introverted and shy as hell) with enough dedication and the right knowledge and know-how. But as I went on through High School graduating with honors and to College, I started to understand how the world worked. That the standard path was not the one for me.

I was haunted by the fact that if I continued on this path I would end up super average and go on to live my days as a mediocre mediogre. Not saying that college and standard paths are bad – I just knew I wouldn’t find what I wanted to live the extraordinary life I knew I was capable of and deserved.

In college, I wanted to find a way to help people but found the traditional methods… Out dated. I didn’t like that most of those methods labelled people and resorted to drugging. And it was at that time that I exited the University of Central Florida after 1.5 years of study and headed out into the School of Hard Blows to the Face.

Actually, it wasn’t that bad. I found so much. I found that I loved the non-profit world and helping expand foundations that I felt were doing real good for people. So I poured everything into these organizations, teaching myself a lot of my skills as there wasn’t a lot of extra money to buy traditional advertising.

I worked 12-14 hour days bringing solutions to Central Florida with a close group of friends. I’m one of those passionate, let’s save the damn world y’all kind of people. Just is the way it is. And made very little in return. Didn’t want to. Didn’t care too much. My heart was in it.

But as time went on, I began becoming “burned out” on helping people. But I didn’t realize at the time that that wasn’t really it.

It was because I knew I could be making a bigger impact and wasn’t. I knew I could do a lot more being a hyper-successful entrepreneur. Our society values these kinds of personalities more than anyone. So I decided to play the game.

Coming down with some health issues and handling them with something called Nutrition Response Testing, I became a true nutrition nerd and went to work marketing the method full-time.

I loved this job and even entered school to become a Licensed Massage Therapist and an Advanced Nutrition Response Testing practitioner. But right as it was coming time to pour myself into it, I still felt another calling on the online world. I wasn’t sure what but I’d figure it out.

It was at this time, the beginning of 2015, that I started reading everything I could get my hands on. Grant Cardone, Tim Ferriss, Seth Godin, Peter Diamandis, Brian Tracy, Zig Zigler, Brendon Burchard, Richard Branson and still continue to listen to a book every other week (at least).

This was when I realized there was SO MUCH opportunity out there and that I had to go get it. And by venturing out there on my own, realized I could help everyone so much more.

Since then, I’ve started 4 businesses, including a product development company and affiliate marketing business. I’ve donated over $40,000 to my Church. I’ve travelled to some of my favorite places. I’ve spent a LOT more time with my family. And have had more resources to help them since freeing up my time.

I’ve also been able to help people around me with their businesses and lives.

I consider it a privilege to call myself a family lover, supportive boyfriend, humanitarian, entertainer and DJ, paleo diet and nutrition nerd, graphic designer, web designer, massage therapist, music lover, marketing pro and strive to be as dynamic and fun-loving as possible in everything I do.

I absolutely love life because I value it and I work to make it the best possible for everyone around me and myself as much as possible.

I want you to succeed in your online business and have created this blog and website to do just that. Please contact me anytime at dominick.pirone@gmail.com (my personal e-mail address) to ask me any questions.

Be Real,
Dominick Pirone
