Joseph Ferraro owns a stationery store in Milan, which is extremely popular with the engineering students at Politecnico di Milano. Joseph is a chemical engineering dropout himself and he never regrets dropping out from the college. He says that if he didn’t drop out from the college due to financial and family issues (he lost both his father and mother and wasn’t willing to take a loan for his education), he wouldn’t have ever been involved in the stationery business which he loves more than anything else. Joseph loves his business so much that he once had an offer to collaborate with a larger store which would have fetched him far greater profits with much less work but he refused the offer because that would have him become more like a corporate and take away much of his passion for the business.
Joseph believes that a stationery store owner must possess wonderful communication skills and also must have a great memory. Joseph says that he is blessed with the both and he thanks god each day for the same because otherwise both his business and personal life would have been completely hellish. Joseph sees himself nowhere in life if it weren’t for his amazing communication skills and memory.
Joseph established his stationery store in the financial year 2003 and he has never looked back ever since. Joseph’s stationery store is mostly the first to innovate in the city. It was Joseph’s store that got a WiFi amplifier (Amplificatore Wifi) first and it was also Joseph’s stationery store to start selling online exclusively on its own website first in the city of Milan.
Joseph claims to have the best online payment system in the entire stationery industry in Italy and he is yet to have been challenged by a rival in this regard.
