The Road Less Traveled
The Remarkable Journey of George N. Goldman
George N. Goldman
In a sweeping, honest memoir that begins during the Great Depression and takes readers into the new millennium, George N. Goldman recounts the people and experiences that defined, challenged, and inspired him in business and in life. His humble, Horatio Alger-style beginnings as the only child in a depression-era family struggling to get by taught him how to value hard work and seize opportunities provided by life. With these two early lessons in hand, a tremendous amount of energy, and bottomless determination, Goldman followed a circuitous path to higher education that resulted in an unanticipated change of major from journalism to accounting as well as the joyous addition of marriage to the love of his life, Judy.
With the woman he loved by his side and his family growing, Goldman embarked upon what would become a fascinating, innovative, and inimitable career that paired his natural talent for deal-making with his keen eye for opportunities. Management consultant, tax preparation service provider, and dog breeder represent a few of the diverse hats he wore on the road to the field of his greatest successes: real estate.
On his journey towards professional and personal success, Goldman faced numerous adversities. From the murder of his best friend to deals soured by double-dealing business partners, Goldman wrestled with numerous challenges and setbacks while building his business legacy, sometimes emerging bent but never broken. When Judy received a deadly diagnosis of multiple myeloma, the lessons learned from their triumphant fight for her life inspired the Goldmans to bring their out-of-the-box thinking to the most unlikely of fields: medical philanthropy. However, this journey to create a lasting legacy became a race against time after Goldman's terminal diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome.
Heartfelt, insightful, affectionate, and well-told, Goldman weaves a lifetime of love and wisdom into a story that will inspire the next generation.
