How to Rise From Hopelessness to Happiness with Glenn Lundy

How to Rise From Hopelessness to Happiness with Glenn Lundy

rise and grind

In 2005, Glenn Lundy was homeless and suicidal. He’d lost custody of his only child, destroyed relationships, and allowed a successful career to fall by the wayside. 

Today, he is among the country’s most sought-after GM’s in the auto industry. He is a proud husband and father to 7 children, with his 8th on the way. Glenn is the creator of the Rise and Grind morning show that has grown into a major brand, and he is an expert in both dealership culture development and leadership training who has  been featured on major networks.

In this episode of American Snippets, Glenn shares his personal and professional experiences and talks about how he’s leveraged the most painful moments of his past to become major assets in his work today.

Glenn’s soaring popularity is evidence that people are thirsty for positivity and hope. While many platforms have evolved to include political views, Glenn and his team are committed to keeping his platform a neutral place, where politics are not welcome.

This is no small accomplishment these days, so we were eager to talk with Glenn and learn how he’s managed to make it happen.

The energy Glenn Lundy exudes is contagious. 

If you already know his story you’ll want to hear him talk about his kids, and the special story he shares about one moment his son taught him a powerful lesson.

If you’ve never heard of Glenn, don’t feel bad- we somehow only learned of him recently ourselves- and we are so glad we did! Like us, you will want to put Glenn’s guidance to work in your own lives, and you will absolutely feel like smiling, no matter what you are up against.
