Jerry Gladstone

Bestselling Author Jerry Gladstone is highly regarded in the self-development industry as a speaker and success coach.

At the age of twenty-six he founded a small fine art company and grew it into an international business that specialized in the production, distribution, and marketing of a wide variety of entertainment fine art. Jerry’s business associations have given him unique access to movie studios and celebrities including 20th Century Fox, The Walt Disney Company, Warner Bros., DreamWorks SKG, Apple Corps Limited, Jim Davis’ Garfield, Elvis Presley Enterprises, Frank Sinatra Enterprises, HBO, Sony, United Media, MGM, and Getty Images, among others..


In conversations with “Rocky” himself, Sylvester Stallone, and other super achievers, Jerry observed a “Common Thread” to success that inspired him to author his first book, The Common Thread of Overcoming Adversity and Living Your Dreams. Over the years Jerry has spent a significant amount of time interacting with and interviewing Academy Award and Grammy winners, Super Bowl and World Series champions, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame legends, Olympians, and boxing and UFC World Champions.

In 2020 Jerry came out with a new book. Old School Success for the Millennial Generation. “My motivation to write the book…too many “so-called experts” try to give a negative reputation to the millennial generation. I say the experts forget what it like being young and out of touch with today’s new realty and pain points. Does the millennial generation need some “Old School “ advice. Absolutely, that’s where the book comes in to play. Old School advice for the new generation.”

Jerry was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Long Island. He and his wife, Brooke, currently live in Florida with their three children, Austin, Allie, and Emma. Jerry experienced low self-esteem and self-doubt and struggled academically as a youngster, but through his parents and sports, he learned that determination, dedication, and perseverance is a winning recipe for success.
