Focused on helping others to follow in his footsteps, Riva took a step back to share the unique efforts that have led him to where he is today.
Developing Positive Habits
Having a history in the real estate industry meant familiarizing himself with hard work at all hours of the day and night. Raffaele Riva broke into the industry in the early 90s but his key to success has been in his longevity thanks to a level-headed approach to daily work.
Riva stated in an interview with the London Post that he likes to start his day as early as 7:30 am to get the most urgent projects done and out of the way. Riva stated, “My working day is already planned, day by day, with my agenda.”
Despite his constant lifestyle of traveling, Riva understands that keeping a consistent schedule in some regards is a must. Riva states, “I have a daily journal noting down the various activities that I have to get done during the day.”
Outside of staying on target through a system of reminders and notes, Raffaele Riva understands that it is important to lead by example. Riva stays focused on the task ahead of him by focusing on his client and their needs. Riva states, “Always think in terms of serving, and even if your client was the one who was wrong, take the initiative to fix things and correct them immediately.”
Overcoming Key Failures
Every leader will, at some point, have to overcome failure in their personal or professional lives. As the leader at AUREA Multi Family Office, Raffaele had to set the standard when it came to overcoming major hurdles and key failures.
Riva stated that a key aspect of his success was in his mindset. Riva was quoted as saying in an interview, “I overcome it by understanding that ‘I don’t do it’ is completely different than ‘I cannot do it.”
Through acceptance of his potential failures, Riva has allowed himself to create a space that is conducive to growth and progress. Riva went on to state, “Do what you like and makes you feel better, believe in it.”
