GROCO Receives Recognition From Fremont Education Foundation

Key's to Life's Success

The American Dreams show was the brainchild of Alan Olsen, CPA, MBA. It was originally created to fill a specific need; often inexperienced entrepreneurs lacked basic information about raising capital and how to successfully start a business. Alan sincerely wanted to respond to the many requests from aspiring entrepreneurs asking for the information and introductions they needed. But he had to find a way to help in which his venture capital clients and friends would not mind. The American Dreams show became the solution, first as a radio show and now with YouTube videos as well. Always respectful of interview guest’s time, he’s able to give access to individuals information and inspiration previously inaccessible to the first-time entrepreneurs who need it most. They can listen to venture capitalists and successful business people explain first-hand, how they got to where they are, how to start a company, how to overcome challenges, how they see the future evolving, opportunities, work-life balance and so much more..

Topics from guest have included:

Creating purpose in life

Building a foundation for their life

Solving problems

Finding fulfillment through philanthropy and service

Becoming self-reliant

Enhancing effective leadership

Balancing family and work

American Dreams discusses many topics from some of the world's most successful individuals about their secrets to life's success.
