Ever since we are small, our parents tell us: "Do not look at what others are doing and think with your head," yet they are the same people who warn us with phrases like: Are you sure? Currency well, I highly recommend "!
Simple lessons that can guide us but, sometimes, do not get along. Touches make choices that, often, invite us to risk, questioning everything.
This is a little 'history Lorenzo Di Pasquo that, after having spoken of his father, gave the network a few lessons in life to young, that look to life, and parents, you must let them go.
Lorenzo, after an experience in Emilia Romagna you have returned to Agnone. As your father, you preferred your native country when everyone fled, looking for something better. Do you ever wonder: what if ...?
"Honestly no. Do not do it because here I managed to get that to which absolute dream job, Agnone because I made my plans. However, I must admit that I would love that Agnone was a little different ".
"And. I'd like a small town like ours was more dynamic and there was more life. Instead, we are surrounded by the laxity. I see young people living in stand-by waiting for you do not know what ... I see a lot of people cry on while I think the chances go look ».
Here, Your clarification this brings us to the next question. You started as a young man in fact only 23 years have taken the reins of the dairy of your father. Today, what would you say to a boy or a girl?
"What would I say to a young…»Lorenzo reflects for a moment, then attacks: "Well I would say first of all to get out and experience Agnone, abroad or in Italy. Unfortunately – explains the interviewee – even if we are in the 2015 I see that many young people live this territory still with the strong limits. So I would tell him to leave, gain experience and grow culturally. After That, I would invite them to come back and take stock of what they have learned ".
You can be entrepreneurs here, top Molise?
"Let me answer by making a practical example: very often we take our cars to go to countries not so much different from ours to make purchases in some stores that sell major brands. Now say: if we move with this in mind because they could not do it the other? The secret is to shop around and reinterpret what is already adapting to new market needs. Many guys have in house activities already underway. Okay, continued and expanded. The important thing is to create curiosity, "says Lorenzo that ultimately tells: You See? I December I opened the cellar to the public and people are coming. Incuriosisci and people come ».
But it is risky to get in business now?
"I create the keys to success are three: have an idea, believe and work hard to get what you want. Therefore: say that today there is an economic crisis or to say that going into business is easy would be to lie. But, why be scared? I, to a young, I would say: do not be afraid. Some, make choices weighted but dare. To register for VAT is not dangerous since there are regulations or procedures that can protect you. The problem is: those who possess knowledge of this type »?
Given that touches the topic you wonder: what role does the school in the education of future entrepreneurs?
"Clearly it is crucial. The history, literature, philosophy: everything is important. But one should not forget the most practical notions as the concept of trust, for example. Have some rudiments of economics, law and current affairs would not hurt the kids today ".
In this framework, however, we have forgotten the family. What would you say to the mothers and fathers who warn their children?
"I would recommend them: let them do. The risk is part of the game, however, help them to make sure that the investment is not a gamble. Responsabilizzateli and teach them the sacrifice but, above, do not let him believe that the future is dark. There is already too much inaction. If we continue as, I do not know where you would end up ".
