Underestimated: A CEO's Unlikely Path to Success
Donald Thompson is a successful CEO and tech entrepreneur. But that wasn’t always the case. Donald’s journey took him down many unlikely paths–from selling Jolly Ranchers out of his locker in elementary school, to working the graveyard shift in a deserted warehouse park, to hawking subprime mortgages. There’s no college diploma hanging on the walls in Donald’s office. There was no prestigious internship at a Fortune 500 company. Instead, he built his career one job at a time through grit and determination and credits his parents and grandparents with creating an environment in which he could dream without boundaries. Today, as a business mentor and advisor, Donald does the same for corporate executives and aspiring entrepreneurs teaching them the tools to accelerate their success. If you have ever been told ‘no’ or have ever felt underestimated, Donald’s story will inspire you to forge ahead with purpose sharing lessons, inspirations and habits to help you realize your own dreams.
