About Ron Glodoski
Ron is the Leading National Expert on Bullying, Substance Abuse and Resiliency
He is a living example of why we should Leave No Child Behind.
Ron speaks from the heart of real life experience. A featured expert on The Sally Jesse Raphael Show, he offers a fresh new perspective on how to effectively connect with kids. His personal triumph over abuse issues, a traumatic brain injury and learning disabilities provides practical solutions to the challenges confronting our youth today.
The authenticity of Ron's message is embodied in his own life. He survived an abusive childhood by escaping to life on the streets. The choice to change his life led Ron on a path of personal growth and transformation.
He attended college and began successfully applying his skills to a series of legitimate businesses - including The Spinoza Company, which markets a talking teddy bear that plays cassette tapes about self-worth and acceptance. Ron expanded this home-based business to a multi-million dollar company that provided meaningful employment for 33 people. His life is undeniable proof that even the kids society labels at-risk can become healthy, productive members of their community.
Today Ron is dedicated to helping others transform their lives. His book, How To Be A Successful Criminal - The Real Deal on Crime, Drugs, and Easy Money has received national acclaim by parents, educators, administrators, judges, police officers, counselors, and social workers.
Every week his school and juvenile detention programs bring him face to face with thousands of elementary, middle, and high school students. Testimonials from students and teachers praise his effectiveness. Using real life experiences, Ron reaches out to kids with respect, and teaches them how to take back their right to choose a better way of life.
Endorsed by educators, mental health and criminal justice professionals, his powerful Staff Development and Parent Programs provide an inside look at the hearts and minds of kids today. He shows what can be done to help heal the past, change the present, and create the future. These programs gently confront and challenge teachers and parents to examine personal attitudes, judgments, and learned behaviors that may be blocking their effectiveness. College students applaud his insight, which prepares them for working with youth and assists them in understanding the issues that kids are dealing with today.
While others ask what can be done to help our youth, Ron is providing answers and changing lives.
