Glen – National Program Coordinator
When Glen was 10 he was the head of a paper and leaflet distribution empire in which he paid family and friends to be his delivery-persons. He used some of his profits to purchase cars before he could legally drive them, but his sister kept writing them off. Glen also dreamed of representing Australia as an athlete – in either running or swimming – and helping others to develop and grow their own businesses. Due to an injury in high school, Glen could not continue to be an athlete. However, since his paper business he has helped more than 35 people establish their own businesses and founded more than 14 businesses himself.
