The story of Joe Mangione, a little boy brought up on welfare and started working at 9 years old to help support his family and became the ultimate deal maker through focus, visualization, and persistence.
His personal lessons will inspire you!
In From an Attic to a Mansion, Joe’s son, Scott Mangione, shares how his father crafted all of these experiences into a career in real estate and business management far more successful than he ever expected.
Joe was born into a poor New York family, one of six children, two adults, and a German shepherd living in a tiny house with no kitchen. He slept in an unfinished attic amid spiders and cobwebs and found his drive for success at nine years old, taking a job with his brother to help support his family. From there, life was an upward climb over both struggles and victories to where the book begins, with Joe looking back on his journey while enjoying a cruise.
Throughout his life, he learned countless lessons that helped him along his way. Some came from the trials of military service, some from the joyous success in business and sales ventures, and some from disappointing setbacks, including the devastating loss of a job when he needed it most.
