Author Interview with Glade Poulsen

Don’t ever give up on your dreams


Dreams are important, and a great way to find out how to achieve your own dreams is to learn how others reached theirs. Today Glad Poulsen has joined me to share a taste his own success documented in Sugar Beets to Shanghai. For our readers who don’t know, what’s Sugar Beets to Shanghai all about?

“Sugar Beets to Shanghai” is a story of dreams and vision of something I believed in and believed I could achieve. Napoleon Hill, a famous writer, personal coach, and human development mentor for many wrote, in his classic book, “Think and Grow Rich; Whatever the mind can conceive, and believe, it will achieve.” In all books of successful entrepreneurs there are chapters of failure. Most of the time we never hear of the struggles. I believe that is a pity. It is through our challenges that we grow the most. In fact it is those hours of the deepest abyss, when continuing on with your dream seems impossible or just too difficult, that you really understand what you are made of or develop your strongest character. Winners never quit and quitters never win. Don’t ever give up on your dreams.



What led you to your story of dreams and vision down?

It started because so many asked me to tell my story.



So the book is purely from your own experiences without any embellishment?

Yes, the whole book is life experiences



Awesome. Were you energised to write your story down, or did it get a bit overwhelming at times?

It energized me and brought clarity.



What did you think about as you gained more clarify as the writing process continued?

Prospects. Entrepreneurs.



What did you want to say to them in your book?

Don’t ever give up on your dreams



Sharing your dreams through words has allowed you to improve your writing. What’s changed about your voice as a writer as you’ve kept at it?

I’ve become more confident



What current writing project has this confidence lead you to do now?

Podcast series
