Michael Franzese - "Making Them An Offer They Can't Refuse" Confessions Of A Former Mob Boss (Part 1)
In this episode, we are talking with someone who has been called the highest earning mob boss since Al Capone, and who made a fortune as a ‘made’ man in the Colombo Crime Family. Meet Michael Franzese, born in 1951 in the Green Point section of Brooklyn, later moved to Long Island, New York. After finishing high school, Franzese entered a pre-med program at Hofstra University in 1969; his father initially did not want him to be involved in organized crime. However, in 1971, Franzese decided to drop out of college to help his family earn money when his father was sentenced to 50 years in prison for bank robbery in 1967. Michael has been featured in numerous books and shows such as the Netflix series “Fear City” as well as "Inside the American Mob," a National Geographic documentary.
Michael opens up about the discipline he learned working as a member of a high-class mob family and how the rank structure of such families ingrained values in a person. All this helped him climb up the mob ranks and became a caporegime of a crew of 300.
Michael had learned many valuable lessons throughout his life, which he shares with us today through this podcast. We're going to dive deep into his personal and professional experience to learn about his lessons in life, his stories, and valuable information that will help you grow and scale your business.
