There’s nothing special about 36. I am at that stage of life that is past young adulthood. I don’t know if I identify with ‘middle-aged’, but I guess I’m there. Somewhere along the way, I must have grown up. Here are a few lessons that I learned.
Entrepreneur. Leader. Philanthropist. Meet Alan Greenberg, the namesake of the 15th Annual Alan Greenberg Charity Golf Tournament which is scheduled for September 19th at Barnsley Gardens in Adairsville, Georgia.
Greenberg spent his early years in a family owned flooring business and developed a passion for entrepreneurship, which led him to co-found CCA Global Partners, where he later became Co-Chairman and Co-CEO.

Win-Win-Win. That’s how CEO Don Finkell describes his company. The state wins. The company wins. The prisoner wins.
Inmates in Turney Correctional facility outside of Nashville, Tennessee have the opportunity to work at a fully-functioning flooring plant inside the gates of the prison. American OEM Wood Floors, Don Finkell’s brainchild, has a huge focus on social entrepreneurship. He started the company four years ago and fired up manufacturing two years later.
