Harlan GoergerPresident H. Goerger & Associates, Inc. | dba AskHG
Harlan was born and raised farming in southern Richland County of ND. He raised 250 head of hogs at age 13, loaded hundreds of trucks with 60lb seed bags and was told by school counselors that he wasn’t smart enough and should stick to mechanics or labor. With that, he acquired a mechanics degree, advanced welding, accounting and art degrees from Wahpeton Science. After some stints in the work world, he took over the family seed business and managed to grow it 400% in just 3 years, including a commodity export branch.
His wife passed suddenly at age 29, leaving him with 3 kids in tow as he started a 20 year stint with Dale Carnegie Training as a regional manager, instructor and instructor trainer. After training 1000s of salespeople, managers and leaders, he pursued other ventures, taking an industrial sales and service company up 400% in 3 years and being considered an expert in the field.
Loving cars and speed, he opened a Street Rod business and built and brokered collector cars all over the world through this thing called the internet. The 9-11 incident cost him a small fortune as it killed the business.
He now runs CEO Solutions group in both Minneapolis and Fargo and coaches fast-growing companies to greater success.
