The Remarkable Journey of Vito Glazers: From Art Student to Media Mogul

Unraveling the Unique Entrepreneurial Path of a Maverick in the Media Industry


Beginning his life as an art student at Columbia College in Chicago, Vito Glazers’ journey to where he stands today as a celebrated media mogul is a story of perseverance, ingenuity, and passion.

Despite being financially strained during his early college years, Glazers’ life took a dramatic turn when a professor urged him to explore the realm of business and economics. Heeding the advice, Glazers secured a scholarship at a prestigious business university. However, a turbulent phase led to him losing his scholarship, marking the first of many setbacks in his path.

Unfazed, Glazers ventured into the corporate world, starting from a call center job and quickly ascending through the ranks in the mortgage business. His journey then took an exciting turn when he co-founded one of the world’s first work-from-home affiliate programs. This venture brought him significant financial success and lifestyle changes, including a move to Los Angeles, where Glazers got a taste of the glamorous Hollywood lifestyle.

However, the rollercoaster ride was far from over. Between over-leveraging into physical businesses and the fast-paced, high-spending lifestyle, the business eventually collapsed. It was a difficult period for Glazers, but one that inspired him to create a disruptive website monetization model. The model was successful but also controversial, leading to conflicts, losses, and eventually a shutdown by government agencies.

Yet, Glazers’ relentless spirit remained undeterred. At this point, he decided to pivot back towards his passion: media and entertainment. He started focusing on networking and learning the nuances of the Hollywood game, leading to his involvement in the reality show ‘Mystery Millionaire.’ Although the experience brought initial success, it also led to a lifestyle defined by excess and a growing disconnect from his real self.

As he grappled with his new-found fame and the arrival of his son, his personal life took a tumultuous turn, leading to a bitter custody battle that financially drained him. Once again, Glazers found himself at a low point, leading him to reevaluate his path and eventually return to his roots in Chicago.

Back in his hometown, Glazers found renewed purpose through real estate ventures and a stint in local media with the infamous Mancow. His experience with Mancow helped him forge valuable connections and launched his career in media.

However, the transformative moment came with the birth of his son. This major shift in his life acted as a catalyst, prompting Glazers to rethink his approach and priorities. The challenges he faced as a father in the family court system were a shock to him, resulting in a legal battle that left him financially drained and emotionally exhausted.

But, as with previous setbacks, Glazers found a way to bounce back. Reconnecting with a friend who was leading a successful marketing company, Glazers ventured into public relations, leveraging his media contacts and experience. This venture was a resounding success, with Glazers becoming the first Public Relations firm to earn the 2 Comma Club award from ClickFunnels.

However, Glazers wasn’t satisfied merely resting on his laurels. Identifying a gap in the market, he designed a unique offering that helped individuals become newsworthy influencers by crafting their stories into books and transforming them into media productions. This venture marked the inception of Glazers Media.

Today, Glazers Media is an industry leader, set to release three documentaries and publish five books for their clients this year alone. Also, two reality TV shows they worked on have been listed on the Emmy ballot, and his concept for a reality TV show called “Uncanceled” is gaining traction.

Through all the highs and lows, Glazers has remained a steadfast believer in resilience and innovation. “Everything you want is on the other side of fear. Everything worth having is worth fighting for,” he says.

Glazers’ journey, filled with immense challenges and monumental successes, serves as an inspiration to many. His story reminds us that disappointments can lead to destiny, and each setback is just the start of a new chapter.
