We had the good fortune of connecting with Gregg Pearlman and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Gregg, what’s the most difficult decision you’ve ever had to make?
Figuring out at a young age what occupation I love to be a part of, re-locating to the epicenter of that chosen field, attend & graduate a top student in my chosen field, making my career a top priority every personal excuse by not turning down any work offered.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I lay awake at night thinking of what I need to do the next day & visualize doing it. Even though I have accomplished a lot in my Life – I still yearn for challenges. To learn new skills, meet new colleagues and adversaries & push myself into fresh scenarios. Not easy, wouldn’t want it to be easy. Lessons I’ve learned: Be honest with yourself & others, follow through with what you say you are going to do. Relationships are the most important thing in Business & character is the most important thing in Relationships. There has to trust along with fun. HAVE A GOOD TIME!If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Don’t drink much anymore, so I would take my guests to favorite restaurants: Bangcock City Thai Food, Mia Tex Mex, Pecan Lodge BBQ, Randy’s Steakhouse in Frisco, Chips Hamburgers,
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My Grandfather showed me what success looked like and encouraged me to find my gift and go after it. He was the President of Zales Jewelers in the 60s. I moved to Los Angeles in the 80s where I learned professionalism.
