Corporate Executive Trades Briefcase For Golden Opportunity
Robert Swanson is the owner of Overlook Goldens in Sherman, CT. Before he was a dog breeder, he was a Vice President in corporate America. When the company he worked for moved overseas, he was given a package and set free. Then came a new choice - go back to corporate America or embrace his love for breeding and showing dogs full time.
Robert traded in his briefcase for a "golden opportunity" - now breeding and showing Golden Retrievers full time, Robert has bred multiple litters of these adorable dogs and has the ribbons and trophies to show for it!
We sat down with Robert to learn more a about his story and why he decided to leave his life in corporate America behind to pursue his dream. He says, "my friends think I'm crazy, but others think it is a wonderful way of reinventing myself and doing what I love best!"
Robert dove right into breeding and showing, put in the time, did all the hard work and was able to eventually get one of his dogs into the prestigious Westminster Dog Show. His advice for others facing a career crossroads is very direct and to the point - "The last thing I wanted to do is look back when I 'm ancient and say I wish I had done that. If you really love something , like I do with these dogs, you just have to go for it... you just do!
Sometimes you just have to drop the briefcase, pick up a leash, and see where it takes you!
