Budding Businessman Plans Mission

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA -- Nicknamed the professor since the age of 5, Ammon Gladwell is an 18-year-old entreprenuer with flair. Starting his own deejay business, Gladwell Music Shows, at the age of 14, Gladwell will leave behind his success and take his talents into the mission field for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

"I talk an awful lot during my show and people enjoy that. I am a people person. You have to be to be in business. When you work with the public, you have to love people," Gladwell said. "The key to success is to work hard. I want to put in a 12-hour day. I like working hard."

Since his freshman year in high school, Gladwell has dejayed his own homecoming and prom. Finally, as a senior he said no to the night of work and put his company to work. "My company did everything instead. I went this year as a student," he said.

"I specialize in high school formals. We contract with over 60 percent of Harrison County high schools," Gladwell added. Recently graduated from Liberty High School, Gladwell will be attending Fairmont State College in the fall to major in business administration and will leave in January to begin his two-year mission.

"I'll be leaving on my Mormon mission and closing my business's doors for two years. It will be sad. The mission will come from church headquarters, when I turn 19. It could be anywhere. It's frightening. We take a lot of things for granted here, I know. I'm not going to sit here and tell you I want to do it. But, it puts some perspective into life. When I come back,I will pick up my business again," Gladwell said.
