My name is Larry Pino. I am the Founder & CEO of Tuscan Gardens®, a Florida-based senior living company focused on pioneering upscale communities for our seniors. I was also the Founder & CEO of a private equity enterprise development, and management firm focused on starting, developing and growing business enterprises. I also serve as Chairman or Board Member of many of those investments. I’ve created some 80 businesses in my professional career selling over $1.5 billion of goods and services, employing thousands of employees and generating hundreds of millions of dollars of investment capital.
I am married with three sweethearts (two boys and a girl) who are the center of my life.
Let me briefly sketch my background: education, legal and business.
I received 16 years of Catholic education from kindergarten through a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Notre Dame. I followed that with a J.D. from New York University Law School. I also received Certificates of Study from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain; L’Alliance Francaise in Paris, France; and from the Centro Linquistico Italiano dantealigheiri in Rome, Italy. I am currently pursuing a Doctorate of Business Administration from University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business.
I am admitted to practice law and am in good standing as a member of the bar in Florida, New York, and California, as well as in various federal courts across the country. I specialize in business and investment law.
In the last 30 years, I have spoken to over one million people and appeared on 140 radio and television talk shows. I currently teach a course on Rapid Enterprise Development for the Hamilton Holt School at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida as an Adjunct Professor.
I have also authored several books including Finding Your Niche, (Berkley-Putnam Publishing), Finding Your E-Niche, The Desktop Lawyer, and Cash In On Cash Flow, (Simon & Schuster). I also co-authored Morphing: Radical Evolution for Revolutionary Times with Dr. Craig McAllaster, retired Acting President Emeritus of Rollins College.
While I no longer speak as frequently as I used to, I do enjoy collecting and sharing my thoughts on life and business. You can check in on the site from time to time or sign up to receive my blog posts by email. Regardless, I am honored to offer my thoughts and hope they provide some value to you.
