With hard work, nothing is unachievable, or so the saying goes. Failure is not an option is quoted in the movie “Apollo 13” as the phrase spoken by the NASA Mission Control Director when faced with unsurmountable odds. What remains true, however, and has been tried and trued many times over, is that the key to success is tenacity and perseverance. Most successful people in the world have failed at something sometime. Yet, what separates the men form the boys, is the ability to bounce back and try it again, and again, and again. The ones who come back understand life is an obstacle course, where failure and rejection are par for the course, not personal – they’re temporary inconveniences designed to be overcome.

An example of a hardworking Uruguayan born American remains Gustavo Dolfino. Finishing business school with less than $100 in his pocket, he went on to build a personal net-worth thought to exceed $300 million. When asked by the press about the secret to his success, Dolfino credited his mother saying “she taught us right from wrong; she taught us to believe in ourselves, to work hard, and most important, she taught us that money is not the end goal. The end goal is doing well by others and leaving a rich legacy behind.”

Dolfino has been credited by numerous people for inspiring them to become the best they could be, and his speeches, as a motivational speaker, are still studied today by most major speech writers. The secret to his success has been the subject of case studies at America’s top business schools.

As Ceo of Student Global, known as myKlovr, Dolfino has taken the passion of helping people and made it available to all students, regardless of age or socio-economic background. The Company, which enjoys some of the most prolific Wall Street investors, is an Artificial Intelligence based predictive analytics algorithm, designed to help students find, apply, get admitted to, and pay for the University of their choice.

Gustavo Dolfino graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from The George Washington University and an MBA from Thunderbird, the American Graduate School of International Management.

Today, Gustavo stands as the Chairman and Ceo of multiple firms and owner of several others. He is highly involved in philanthropic endeavors and prefers to fly under the radar.
