The 2024 Make Big Happen Summit at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel brought together inspiring leaders for a two-day event focused on transformation and achieving big things. Amongst the esteemed speakers was Kind Lending’s very own CEO, Glenn Stearns, Horatio Alger Award Winner, and star of Discovery Channel's Undercover Billionaire.

Stearns' session, titled "The Undercover Billionaire Mindset," delved into his incredible journey of overcoming adversity to achieve success in business and life. Despite facing challenges like dyslexia, a turbulent upbringing, and even cancer, Glenn has remained laser-focused on his goals, proving that resilience and perseverance are key ingredients for meteoric success.

Even before his television fame, Stearns' achievements were impressive. At the young age of 25, he established Stearns Lending, a mortgage company that experienced phenomenal growth, reaching nearly $1 billion in monthly funding by 2010. Remarkably, Stearns Lending not only weathered the brutal 2007 mortgage crisis but emerged stronger, becoming one of the nation's top lenders. Stearns credits his company's success to prioritizing "people before profit" and maintaining unwavering integrity in lending practices.

Stearns Lending's commitment paid off. Since 2010, the company has funded over 150 billion dollars in loans, earning the title of America's #1 Wholesale Lender in 2013. Their impact extends beyond financial success, as they've played a vital role in helping nearly 1 million families achieve the dream of homeownership. In recognition of his remarkable achievements and dedication to philanthropy, Stearns was inducted into The Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans in 2011. This prestigious honor recognizes individuals who have overcome significant challenges to achieve success.
