No matter where your beginnings, you deserve to follow your dreams of a better life and create a legacy for future generations.

Brandon Vallorani, accomplished entrepreneur and founder of Vallorani Estates, believes anyone can build upon humble beginnings and pursue the finer things in life. He recounts his own American Dream success story in his new book, The Wolves and the Mandolin: Celebrating Life's Privileges In A Harsh World.

"The wolves and the mandolin story has been passed down from generation to generation in my family. A great-uncle was stuck in a tree surrounded by wolves. He played his mandolin to pass the time, and the beautiful music calmed the wolves and my great-uncle made it away safely," says Vallorani. "This tale reminds us that beauty can be found even in the midst of growling wolves and that even the fiercest wolves can be calmed."

The Wolves and the Mandolin follows the Vallorani family's modest beginnings in Italy, shares legend-worthy stories of their first years in America, and culminates with Brandon's success as an entrepreneur. Vallorani provides his philosophies in business and management, and the path taken to create a quality brand of hand-curated luxury products, Vallorani Estates.

The Wolves and the Mandolin also reveals:
  • Vallorani's five tips for selling any product online
  • Why it's important for entrepreneurs and executives to take the time to enjoy life's privileges
  • An entrepreneur's guide to dealing with "administrative wolves" without draining money, time and happiness
  • Looking beyond: How to move on and up when you've hit a ceiling
  • How to learn to celebrate life's privileges in a world of harsh wolves

As an eternal achiever and positive thinker, Brandon is always conquering new territory―but while doing so, encapsulating his life, his ancestors, and his future into a unique "brand" of living.

It's a good life in a harsh world, and in The Wolves and the Mandolin, Brandon Vallorani is proof and inspiration that a life worth celebrating is possible. 
"Luigi's pursuit of the American Dream still lives within his great-grandson. Much as Luigi stood  his ground during battles in Benghazi and Sciara, Brandon's perseverance and old world determination has enabled him to maintain his entrepreneurial spirit and succeed while dodging his own bullets in the form of two recessions. This journey is as much about a family's history as it is our nation's. " - Steven A. Castleton, Recipient of U.S. Army Outstanding Civilian Service Medal
