Inside the CEO Mind at American Jewelry and Loan

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
When making his first sale at 7 years old in his grandfather’s pawnshop, Les Gold could’ve never predicted that, alongside his son Seth with whom he operates American Jewelry and Loan, he would someday be one of the most widely-recognized family business owners in the world thanks to a television show, Hardcore Pawn, now shown in over 52 countries around the globe.
Attendees will hear stories of their amazing journey–told from the floor of their now-iconic Detroit store. The Detroit Regional Chamber invites you to come and take a trip inside the minds of this father-and-son team and how facing their fears has led to hardcore success.
