Resurge Enterprise values one thing above all else- teamwork. Our teammates are the oil to the Resurge machine. One of those incredible team members, Dylan Gunn, joined the team in August of this year. We sat down with him to discuss the road that brought him here, as well as what’s next for the entrepreneur.
Where are you from?
“I was born in Augusta, but raised in a small country town named Gibson, Georgia.”
How did you first learn about Resurge Enterprise?
“I learned about this company from my good pal, Tyler Bennett. We sold cars together at a Ford Dealership in Evans, GA.”
How has this company helped you in your career development?
“My company has helped me in my career development by giving me the opportunity to become a leader and learn how to train and motivate others. Sales in general can be challenging, but at the end of the day, I have gained the drive and desire to become the best leader for my team and myself, and that is priceless.”
What has been the proudest moment in your life and in the office?
“The proudest moment in my life was leaving the small town of Gibson that I grew up in to move to Augusta, where I have increased my financial stability. My proudest moment in the office was getting promoted in only 9 days and not letting my foot off of the gas.”
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
“It would definitely be the ability to play every guitar solo ever!”
If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?
“I would pay off my debt and invest the rest.”
At what age did you become an adult?
“I became an adult at the age of 18 when I quit college and went to work so I could support myself.”
How do you define success?
“I define success as reaching every single goal you’ve ever set. Also, when you can do what you want to do and not what you have to do.”
What is your favorite thing about working in the business industry?
“Being surrounded by a bunch of highly motivated people.”
Who inspires you?
“My girlfriend, Kerry Vo. She is currently in her last year of nursing school at Augusta University. She is very motivated and supports all of my crazy life decisions.”
What are you passionate about?
“I am very passionate about enjoying life — doing things I love and want to do. We’re only here for a little while ya know?”
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
“YIKES! One of the craziest things I’ve ever done was take a Mustang GT on a test drive, hit 148 mph, which completely had me sold, and buy it.”
What business advice would you give to people hoping to start a career?
“Educate yourself. Read some books. Don’t be afraid to take risks and never EVER give up on the big picture!”
It’s clear to see why we love Dylan Gunn so much, and his constant encouragement pushes the rest of his team to be better. In his own words, the motivating factor behind his drive is “knowing that [he] is one day closer to becoming who [he] strives to be.”
