Sam Glenn is known at The Attitude Guy and has become one of the most recognized Authorities on the subject of Attitude today. Sam knows success and failure. At one time, Sam was negative, broke, depressed, homeless and got by working odd jobs at night as a janitor and delivering newspapers. Sam’s attitude was in the dumps until a dear friend gave him what he calls a “Kick in the Attitude,” a gift that changed his attitude for the better.

Sam began to work on his attitude and made some life changing discoveries. With a new attitude in play, Sam went from sleeping on the floor and working as a janitor, to achieving dreams he once thought were impossible. Today, Sam is the author of several success books and energizes audiences as large as 75,000 at stadium events with his inspiration and humor.
