GLEN AND JOYA BAKER™
Although they’re incredibly successful now, they certainly didn’t start out with silver spoons in their mouths. Like many wealthy entrepreneurs, they started out their adult lives trading hours for dollars. Joya went to dental school to become a dental hygienist. She quickly resigned herself to the idea that her life would consist of working hard until she got carpal tunnel and then teaching at a dental school until she just couldn’t fathom teaching anymore. Joya had seen this be the case for so many others that she just assumed that’s how life had to be.
Joya and Glen had bought into the falsehoods of the American dream that wanted to force them to work for forty years and miss out on the primes of their lives.
Thankfully, the right people invested in them and taught them to dream so much bigger. Joya and Glen didn’t hate their jobs, but they had two young kids at the time. They wanted more than anything—like any sane parent would—to be able to grow up with their kids, to be able to spend “quantity” time as well as quality time with them.
Their transformation into successful business owners didn’t happen overnight, though. It took sacrifice. It took getting rid of the so-called “nonsense” in their lives, focusing on and accentuating the positive, and changing their mentality about the future.
Glen says of his unfailing determination to build his business, “I’ve never wanted just to be on the sidelines. I’ve always wanted to be in the game.” Since committing to an entrepreneur’s life, he has never once sat on the sidelines of his life.
Now, his days consist of spending time with his grandkids, traveling the world with his wife, and enjoying life.
They’re immensely proud to be a part of that continuing legacy of leadership and hope to keep leading others to live their best lives.
Glen and Joya have one unwavering message for anyone feeling the drive to succeed, “The best is yet to come!”
A MAN WITHOUT A VISION SHALL PERISH.
