Episode 24: Glen Gould – Courage of Circumstance
Glen Gould began his career at the age of 11 working for a catering company more years ago than he’d like to admit.
At 13 he took his first “real” job working at Dairy Queen and progressed to night manager at Taco Tico at age 15.
Following his dream of being a professional golfer, Glen worked at world-class resorts including The Tournament Players’ Club at Sawgrass where he learned first-hand how to treat customers.
It was during his time as a Golf Professional that Glen began to truly study successful people and organizations with the intention of learning what they do, how they do it, and replicating their results.
Using what he learned about how successful people connect, Glen became the president of the Punta Gorda (FL) Chamber of Commerce and later the Director of Small to Midsized Business at the Metro Atlanta Chamber. He concluded his chamber career at the Newnan-Coweta Chamber (2015 Small Chamber of the Year).
He’s started four multi-million-dollar enterprises from the ground up and is a partner in Dry Cleaning Connection with his wife Tammy and sons Grant and Carson. He’s authored four books including Meet Me at Starbucks and 101 Networking Nuggets. He’s also failed more times than most people try, learning more from his failures than from his successes. Today Glen inspires audiences to achieve more through entertaining and thought-provoking talks that include role-playing, interaction, and sometimes just plain fun.
