Helping you channel your full potential !
“Everything you can imagine is real.”
― Pablo Picasso
My name is Vittoria Scopelliti.
If you are looking for the classic blogger who started 100 years ago blogging and was miserable and then became rich, this is not me.
I started creating websites in 2019 around April, at some point I had 5 or 6 sites, I lost count, maybe it was more.
I don’t know how many domain names I bought, and I thought it was an excellent idea to buy them and sell them.
Since I did not know anything about creating websites, WordPress, selling online, Google ranking ( what is that anyway?), SEO, backlinks… nothing, I ended up perplexed with all those sites, but none was producing money. Since I bought them already made, I thought they already had some life of their own.
But, not only all those websites had no life, but they were getting mine!
In a few words: I spent a lot of money on websites, ads, domains, software, but nothing worked.
I started to get in desperation. My purpose was to invest some savings into something that could create passive income.
Results= I spent almost everything, and still, I did not have a passive income.
I ended up a victim of a couple of frauds, I lost around $1000.
At this point, I said THAT IS IT!
My Values & Beliefs
Not all that Glitters is Gold
Do not fall for any “easy and fast method” to make money online. Like in life starting an online Business IS a Business! Every Business requires work.
“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.” ― Thomas A. Edison
All the failed experiments gave me a pretty clear picture of what to do and what not to do. Also, it gave me a pretty good idea of what someone should have told me a year ago and $10.000 ago!
Starting Something is Better then Not Starting
I am grateful that I persisted, but before that, I am grateful I started despite I knew nothing about it.
It is possible to self-taught
I am here because I could learn to use WordPress, SEO, and much more by myself. But I could spend $10.000 again, I would use it to train on coding, web design, and WordPress.
The Biggest Failure is Also the Biggest Success
I could not find an easy path or someone to tell me how to start, what to do, and what not to do. The one that did explain often used complicated terms or assumed the reader already knew all about it. It was the inspiration to create my Blog Interactive System™.
WordPress All the Way
I should have started with WordPress way earlier.
My Favorite coffe between all the failures
Hitting summer in Las Vegas. When I felt down, I used to get an iced coffee at the Mothership coffee shop—always watching a youtube video in the hope that someone could tell me the “secret” to generate income from the internet.
To make a long story short, I sold and closed all the Websites I bought, and I had to start over with this site that you see now.
I could not make a single site work, let alone 6! Watching YouTube videos and reading online, I had the wrong impression that it took 5 minutes to get going with a profitable website.
WRONG – IT TAKES WORKS!
I was resisting starting a WordPress site since the beginning.
It seemed complicated with all those technicalities, and I did everything else until I concluded that this was THE thing to do.
And I did it – I started my journey and was way more successful.
Yes, I had to learn everything, it was not easy. I had to do it with fewer resources since I spent it on the wrong projects.
BUT it was way better and way more productive.
I definitively learned hard that ” the five minutes ” get rich schemes ARE schemes!
I can tell you more; I can tell you where I came from and what I did in the earlier years.
WELL COME BACK LATER, AND I MAY ADD THE REST OF MY STORY.
Meanwhile, what I got out of the above horror story?
READ MY VALUES AND BELIEFS JUST BESIDE.
Don't Be Afraid to Experiment
I may have changed the shape of this site ten times before I finally find the correct formula. Just try – if you make a mistake, it can always be corrected.
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
I so much wished someone could write in a certain way or teach how to build a blog the right way. I found a bit and piece here and there of the information I needed. I had to put it together. Therefore I decided to put it together for everyone.
“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” ― Albert Einstein
I still need to put my imagination and creativity into what I was doing. I try it to do it without a personal touch. It did not work. I have been always a visionary and a believer but too afraid to act on my imagination. I decided to stop holding it back.
My approach is comprised of all my beliefs described above.
I want to create the perfect site and tools to show people how to create their blogs. Like I would have liked to have myself at the beginning.
I want to make things simple and effective.
EARLIER EXPERIENCES, MISSES, AND MENTORS
In the earlier times of my life, I always wanted to be a writer.
I remember I tried to write a book, an ebook, actually. I wrote it in a week and used a self-publishing website. It was a motivational type of book, written in Italian.
The title was ” 7 Steps to win in life” ( I wrote in Italian, and then an English version was provided ). I totally forgot about it for years, and recently I did research online to see if it still exists. I do not even remember what I wrote. ( It is that bad!)
A total miss, I do not think I would even buy it. But it was fun! It was written mainly as a hobby. (First photo on the right)
Later on, I went into a more prestigious collaboration with one of my idol and favorite mentor. I absolutely love this person, and when the changes appear to collaborate with him, I jumped in it, and I got it!!!
He is the bestselling author of “The 10X Rule” and “If You’re Not First, You’re Last,” as well as a sales trainer, speaker, and entrepreneur who has worked in real estate and the auto industry. Grant Cardone is a real estate mogul who built his $1.9 Billion portfolios of multifamily properties from scratch. Moreover, he was named the #1 marketer to watch in 2017 by Forbes Magazine.
I still can’t believe I could work for him. He released a booklet called the “Millionaire Booklet.”
If you know him, then you know that he is high energy, fast and effective. He decided to make the booklet available within a few weeks, having it translated into as many languages as needed.
I reached out to him and he agreed for me to translate it into Italian. Great, great experience. It made my year!
He gave credit to all translators on his website, listing all our names.
I believe that this experience gave me a lot of self-confidence and the strength to start my online adventure!
I would say it was a turning point!
EARLIER LIFE AND A BIT ABOUT ME
Ok, I hate talking about me! But, I guess you are a bit curious. I grew up in northern Italy, even though I am born in the south, Sicily, the famous “mafia” island. ( I do not have anything to do with it!!)
I went to high school but did not complete the last year. I decided to travel around Europe and live a bit in the US.
I know everyone would tell me to complete the school to have a diploma, but I am not a conventional person and like to think outside of the box. Was it a mistake? I still have to decide.
I was the classic youngster that was an affiliate with WWF, Greenpeace and wanted to save the world! But I had to lean to save myself first! At school, I was participating in all sit-ins and manifestations.
I would go to protest directly to the school director (as class representative) and, of course, almost got thrown out and suspended. You got the type. With the head in the clouds, a total idealist makes all the mistakes you can think of.
I managed to learn English in 1 year once I started to travel. This is the good news and a total game changer! While in school, after eight years of English lessons and hundreds of hours listening to teachers, I couldn’t learn how even to say my name, and it was a waste of time. Do not come to Italy to learn English. We are the worst!
In the US, I met many people. Understanding English opened so many possibilities for me, like meeting Grant Cardone, understanding his videos, and many other great and successful people, other bloggers like you ( if you are one ) that can inspire me to do a great job.
I have been in the US for four years, between LA and Las Vegas. It is here that what I wanted to do took form and I narrowed what I should do going forward.
Here it is!
