The Road To Success

As a child growing up in the small Irish village of Rathangan in County Kildare, Sean Conlon had an insatiable appetite for business and was a voracious reader regularly tasking the local library for books on numerous topics from falconry to American success stories like Rockefeller, Getty and Carnegie. Financial necessities forced him out of college, so he moved to London where he began his career in the back office of Lehman Brothers. Nevertheless, he continued to harbor a dream for America, with $500 in his pocket, this Irish immigrant moved to Chicago in 1990. Realizing that achieving the American Dream requires hard work, Sean literally started from the ground up by working as a janitor to pay his bills.
