Lessons From My Grandfather
June 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The guiding principles received from an immigrant forbearer illuminate the road to success in this loving tribute from Marc Demetriou, Lessons From My Grandfather: Wisdom for Success in Business and Life (Highpoint Life; January 16, 2018). Demetriou, one of America’s top mortgage experts, learned early in his life that success is a choice thanks to the teachings of his grandfather, Haralambos “Charlie” Pistis, the archetypical self-made man who left Cyprus penniless at the age of 16 and immigrated to America. Through all the hardship and challenges of life, Charlie managed to beat the odds and ultimately retired at the age of 60 as a millionaire. He enjoyed an amazing 37 more years with friends and family until he passed at the age of 97.
