The idea of filing bankruptcy has different meanings depending on who you ask. For one individual, it means a total loss of financial control. For another, it means hitting rock bottom with nowhere left to go.
The 3-Year Success Sprint
Have you ever owed a person, or worse, a bank, money? If so, you know that all-too-familiar sting of looking at your bank account and wondering where your next meal is coming from. Alex Pissios not only owed money, he owed a fortune. At the young age of 35, he needed to pay off over 13-million dollars of debt, and worse, he had no idea how to get started.
Fast forward to 2008 when Pissios began the next era of his life: the road to success. Pissios reignited a relationship with a distant cousin, Nick Mirkopoulos, who, among all things, was a successful entrepreneur.
Fast forward to a wedding in 2008 where Pissios’ and Mirkopoulos’ paths crossed once more, and we see how success often sprouts out of trivial interactions. Saving the technical details, Alex Pissios and Nick Mirkopoulous went on to form an impressive relationship that combined the world of real estate and film into one cohesive operation.
Pissios, knowing the harsh reality of failure, set out to scout the perfect location for this business to begin operations. Although there were ups and downs littered throughout the hunt, Alex Pissios landed on the ideal property: the Ryerson Steel Complex.
From 2008 to 2011, Pissios life was anything but easy, but in the end, he found massive success and reclaimed his confidence in real estate. Alex Pissios now has visions that include global expansion, establishing Chicago as a film and entertainment hub.
