Bio: My name is Antonio Ciraco and I am a Sales Professional for one of the Nations largest Mercedes Benz Dealerships. I’m 31 years young and full of life! I absolutely love living life on the edge and love to take risks! I believe I am extremely successful with my career because of my past and upbringing. I live for giving back to my family and setting my future up for success while never losing site of who I am and where I have been.
The World Needs More: World needs more people to be kind, caring, forgiving and smile more. Care about people, things and themselves. If you care and smile more you may just change someone else’s day and who knows what they are going through and what a simple smile or a wave may make someone feel :]. Also be more kind and courteous. It’s effortless. One of my favorite quotes was from a tv show called Friday night lights. It was “there is no weakness in forgiving”. Think about that and let it sit in. There is not a weakness in forgiving. If you can try and forgive someone that doesn’t make you a weak person, in fact, it makes you much stronger and builds your character!
WOW factor: Wow factor for me are a few periods of my life. One is from losing a ton of weight, 85lbs to be exact and the next is my career. What has wowed me is reflecting on the process when I lost the weight and see how I, in only 7 months, lost 85lbs by doing it the right way. Changing the way I ate and going to the gym 6-7 days a week. People say they can’t do it but really that is an excuse. By just getting up and making that first step, you’ve already started doing it. Seeing where I was and what I did to accomplish such a hard goal was a huge WOW factor because I have always struggled with weight and seeing the change in my confidence, quality of life, energy, and appearance really put me in shock. Next is my career. I have never been more successful than I am right now and do not confuse my confidence with cockiness because by no means that is that the case. I love what I do and I am very good at it. I’m not your typical pressure kind of sales guy. I am an experience type of salesman. When you get me you are getting the experience. You know the brand your buying so why not just touch base with a few features, safety items but let’s focus on the experience. This has given me a huge set reflection on myself and has given me the confidence in that I know I am doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing right now and I am killing it! I love the brand, I love my clients and more importantly, I love my career and for that, I am WOWED by it. But a side note all of this couldn’t and maybe it could’ve put in my eyes I couldn’t and wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for my parent’s upbringing. They are my personal wow factor and the reason I am so successful. I work hard so that I can give back to them and try and wow my mom and dad so that they can sit back and say wow that’s my son and we raised him right.
