Albert Scaglione speaks to StartupNation Radio about Park West Gallery

Albert Scaglione

Park West Gallery founder and CEO Albert Scaglione spoke with StartupNation Radio about entrepreneurship.

Park West Gallery founder and CEO, Albert Scaglione, spoke with Jeff Sloan and Norm Pappas from StartupNation Radio about building Park West Gallery from the ground up.

“If you have the passion and you have this unique special thing that you feel you need to bring along,” he said. “That’s when it really starts.”

The show focused on how people can become successful entrepreneurs. Scaglione told the radio hosts that success can be measured by the amount of money someone makes, but believes there is more to it than a dollar amount.

“If you never make a huge amount of money, but you’re living your life the way you really love to live it, and you operate out of your home with independence and freedom and with the ability to produce the best you can produce, satisfying your own self internally, you’ve got it all.”

He cautions that the “road to success is a road strewn with failure,” but the key is to have fast failures, meaning people should try things and experiment, and if they fail, move onto the next idea or phase. Overall, he says the biggest aspect of being an entrepreneur is to work hard.

Before founding Park West, Albert began his career as a mechanical engineering sciences college professor at Wayne State University in Detroit. His vision of a new way of bringing art to the world has been transformational, with over one million customers now able to enjoy the experience of collecting artwork through his ingenious efforts.

    Dear Sir,
    I kindly ask you to check what happened with my art delivery? I have been writing to all your company emails and I did not get any response from any of them. On November 2014 Europe cruise I have won three pieces of art but only two were delivered to my home. I have been looking for the third picture but none of your employees have ever replied to my emails. I know that you didn’t build your business from ground up by losing clients pictures or not replying to emails. Many thanks and kind regards,
    Vedran Trsic

    I, too, am having difficulty receiving information from Customer Service. We purchased on Norwegian Spirit, on 12/15/2014 and continue to await arrival of our purchase. I have sent 3 emails and called with no response.
