We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr Glenn Toby and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr Glenn, can you tell us about an impactful book you’ve read and why you liked it or what impact it had on you?
A successful career should be driven by Career and Community should forever be connected. Each one should compliment the other. The balance of the two will determine where and who you are in life. If properly measured and managed, these areas of your life will grant you a rewarding life fueled by the passion and happiness of others you have helped to move to positions of purpose and prosperity.
