Michael Glover began his career in the food industry with the McDonald’s Corporation. He took full advantage of the opportunities for further training, mostly on the job, but with highly qualified members of staff from the McDonald’s corporation.
Success in business and the challenge to rise above the life of the streets in order to create a better life was a daunting task. Glover admits that his faith was tested and his commitment to prayer was critical as he worked through life-changing circumstances. In addition, there was an underlying motivation to have a family he could call his own.
With a beautiful wife, two daughters and a son, Mike now sees the fruits of his life in his family, and family life as the crowning reality to the years of hard work.
