Carol Amato launched her business career the old fashioned way, starting from the ground up.
Right out of high school, Carol helped her fiancee and his family build their business, an Italian eatery called Original Italian Pizza, in Lewistown, PA.
She and her husband of 30 years now live in Florida after selling the restaurant to Amato’s sister-in-law. But she still keeps her hand in businesses of many kinds.
“Over the years, I worked from home as a customer service rep, eBay power seller and a medical transcriptionist,” Amato says, admitting to being a lifelong learner.
She launched her website, CarolAmato.com, however, to pursue another ambition, learning and sharing what she has learned about business online.
“I have a passion for helping people achieve their goals and enjoy interacting with my readers on a daily basis. I have truly made some wonderful friends along the way which makes the journey so delightful,” she says.
Amato spends her days in her home office helping her husband with his latest business. In her spare time she works on her own burgeoning Internet marketing projects.
One of her latest, besides her main website, is creation of a new Private Label Rights content shoppe “because I saw a need for high quality content at an affordable price.”
Amato has a simple to articulate business philosophy.
“I try my best to treat others the way I want to be treated,” she says.
Amato’s business principals extend to her view of customer service as well. It’s something she has worked hard to extend into her online business.
“I’ve really tried to go the extra mile in answering each and every email personally, no matter what, and pride myself on a 24-hour response time, usually quicker,” Amato says. “My loyal readers and subscribers mean everything to me.”
