A quick entrepreneur profile of Dan Fugazzi, Paramount Home Real Estate, Enid, Oklahoma. I heard him speak at a recent veteran’s entrepreneur conference in Enid.
Dan has been entrepreneurial since grade school. Along with his career in the military, he has fixed windshields, supplied swimming pools, and is now launching a relocation service.
His biggest obstacle is lack of money to pursue large ideas. The way he overcomes it is by joining forces with larger companies.
His mentor Leonard Freed told him, “Create as many opportunities for as many people to make enough money that they can pay you, as you can.” If you both make money, then you make money.
He’s never borrowed to do a business, but he comes up with ideas that others can go with, together. When they make money, they have money to pay Dan, too.
When asked how being a veteran helped him in business, Dan said, “I learned to be on time. I learned to be a good leader by being a follower.”
