Greg Lindberg is an author, entrepreneur, and mogul. His empire, called Global Growth, includes more than 100 smaller companies that were eventually consolidated under his umbrella. Lindberg has a true talent for taking underperforming companies and turning them into profitable ventures. In his books, Failing Early & Failing Often: How to Turn Your Adversity Into Advantage and 633 Days Inside: Lessons on Life and Leadership, he explores in detail how he’s managed to turn setbacks into opportunities — and how others can do it too.
Lindberg credits his accomplishments to a system of beliefs that he's built over the years. So when he was sent to a minimum security prison for a wrongful conviction, one that he fought against to clear his name, he took the time to become a better version of himself. His approach to life is always one of trial and error, and he's determined to keep pushing against the negativity so he can have a life he can be proud of.
