“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
“In every adversity there are the seeds of an even greater advantage.” – Napoleon Hill, 1937
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
Greg has “been in the arena” for over 28 years building the companies that make up what is known today as the Global Growth family of companies. He started a small health insurance compliance and reimbursement newsletter business with $5,000 in 1991 that became the predecessor company to Global Growth.
Today Global Growth provides jobs to over 8,000 people globally and provides products and services to over a million customers.
Greg has completed over 125 acquisitions across the services and knowledge-based sectors of the global economy generating a 35 percent compound annual growth rate on equity capital.
Greg has funded ground breaking clinical studies related to human longevity and to the treatment of advanced Parkinson’s disease.
Greg has made investments in Europe, the United States, the United Kingdom, Central America, Hong Kong, Australia and the Middle East.
In all of these global endeavors he has followed the advice of Teddy Roosevelt, and has been one who is “actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood.”
Greg has faced and overcome numerous adversities including surviving a brain tumor, fighting false and unjust charges stemming from a political opponent, fighting false and defamatory media reports, and surviving rapid and unforeseen changes in insurance regulation that forced some of his insurance companies into rehabilitation.
Greg has found an even greater advantage in every adversity he has faced. Finding greater advantage in every adversity reflects core elements of Global Growth’s organizational culture.
“Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.” — Mahatma Gandhi.
