What Richard Branson wrote about my good friend…

A little while back I had the pleasure of sitting down and interviewing my friend, Glenn Stearns as he shared his incredibly inspirational story of very humble beginnings to epic (but very humble) success. Last year he was diagnosed with throat cancer and we are all thrilled that he is doing well and is in remission.
