Business Wisdom from a Pawnbroker

Street smart and hard bargaining, Les Gold spent the last 40 years as a Detroit pawnbroker. He is the star of the blockbuster television show, Hardcore Pawn seen by other 3 million viewers in the US and countless others in countries including Australia, Spain, Poland, the Netherlands, and beyond. Their record-breaking show features the daily interactions with customers of their 50,000 square foot American Jewelry and Loan in the heart of Detroit’s 8-mile neighborhood. Les is the author of the New York Times Bestselling book For What It’s Worth – Business Wisdom From a Pawnbroker. His keynote presentations are engaging and his on-stage style is hardcore.

Reinvention is key. Les started in a tiny store where he could barely turn around – years later he has a warehouse. He started as a pawnbroker – now, he’s a television star and author. He shares my same belief that you should always look for ways to change proactively, when times are the best, rather than having change forced upon you or your business.
