Drawing from his ever-growing wealth of experience as an analyst and entrepreneur, Dominick has a piece of advice for young people. As stated by him, it’s from a quote, “Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it I say! Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows”.
