Trust Your Inner Voice & Take the Next Step—with Glenn Lobas - EP 163

Is your inner voice calling you toward your purpose—but you’re not taking action? Are the ‘what ifs’ stopping you from taking the next step? If a fear of failure is what’s holding you back, it’s time to take the word out of your vocabulary and recognize that every learning experience is part of the journey. So, how do you learn to trust that inner voice and do something TODAY to change your course?

Glenn Lobas is a serial entrepreneur and international shipping consultant—and our new host Ian’s dad! He studied International Marketing and Logistics in college and worked his way up to Import Manager at an international shipping company while studying to become a Licensed Customs Broker. In 1987, he founded his own global air freight company, Ian International. Since then, Glenn has founded a total of three international shipping companies and currently serves as President of Customs & Trade Logistics.

Glenn shares his approach to parenting, offering insight into why he allowed Ian to make mistakes and responded without judgement when things didn’t go as planned. Listen in for Glenn’s advice on trusting the inner voice that points you toward your purpose and learn how to overcome the ‘what ifs’ and take the next step on YOUR journey!
