Just five years into the business and GLO on the Go co-owner Chad Ward already realizes he loves what he does so much he should have opened shop 20 years ago! Ward credits his success and the inspiration to his wife, Gail, and his Aunt Donna. “Many people have inspired me from family, musicians and pro athletes,” says Ward. “But looking back my Aunt Donna inspired me most throughout my life. She owns a framing business in Solen, Ohio, out of her home. As a kid I loved staying there because her business is very beautiful! She inspired me through her kindness to everyone. That impressed me and I try to do that every day.” Ward also credits his success in business and in life to paying attention to what others had to say. “Since I was 18, I would listen to what older people had to say. Sometimes adults know what’s best!”
Why is that pair of chic ladies shoes always in the He Glo(w)s photo? Well, it’s because those shoes represent all the women who have inspired, motivated, excited, helped and cared for each man featured in the He Glo(w)s profiles. Often times, behind every great man is a great woman. These shoes represent the feminine influence behind our community’s more influential male contributors.
