As a keynote speaker and author of the book, The Art of Speaking Into Existence, Glenn describes how he overcame barriers, achieved seemingly impossible goals, and made his dreams come true. He brings us through his childhood experiences in the projects of Peoria, Illinois, to his present life in Pasadena, California. This odyssey is about overcoming fears including those faced as a child of divorce, an alcoholic father, being the first black family in a white neighborhood, and experiencing challenges throughout his youth and career.
Through this book and his speaking engagements, Glenn shares the keys to his success so that others can manifest the life of their dreams. His audiences learn how he developed his dreams into measurable goals, how he chose mentors as well as how he found them, and how he created self-confidence through facing adversity. These are just a few examples of what helped him to create the success that everyone can experience. It is Glenn’s intent to help others develop a plan and a support system to manifest their best lives.
