We had the good fortune of connecting with Patrick Glover and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Patrick, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
When he’s not in the classroom as a computer lab manager, the Lynn University graduate stays busy overseeing a portfolio of businesses he launched over the years. “My mother and I used to visit thrift shops all the time when I was younger,” he said. The duo sought precious metals, like jewelry, coins and other high-end items, that they could refurnish and resale. As their efforts literally “paid off,” they founded Delray Beach-based Urban Scrap Metal, LLC. which consults with several South Florida organizations to buy, sell, reproduce and safely store gold products. ”Glover release his first book, Urban Scrap Metal 101 Vol. 1: #UrbanScrapMetal Kindle Edition and Virtual Educational Field Trips Vol. 101: “Look at me. Against all odds, I imagined to manifest a trifecta via education, prayer and discipline,” he said. “I put in the hours and the hard work and found a way to differentiate myself. I am thankful to Lynn for enhancing my focus on education and giving me the structure to succeed.” Whenever possible, Glover charges or donates his time to the local All-America City of Delray Beach community. “I offer consulting and mentoring services to a variety of companies and organizations via Urban Scrap Metal,” said Glover. “A lot of the advice I provide stems from the belief that opposition creates opportunity. If you want to be successful, you have to be willing to put up with the doubters and disbelievers and keep your eye on full profit maximization.”
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
How did you get to where you are today business-wise. Was it easy? No it was not easy. Me and my mother used to shop at Thrift Stores so much we created our own nick name “La Thrift Store” how did you overcome the challenges? “Look at me. Against all odds, I imagined to manifest a trifecta via education, prayer and discipline,” he said. “I put in the hours and the hard work and found a way to differentiate myself. I am thankful to Lynn for enhancing my focus on education and giving me the structure to succeed.” You have to know who you are, so you can be who you need to be!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Where would you take them? Where would you eat? Houstons but I would have to bring a great sauce called Cedella Marley Booker’s Smilin’ Island Foods; Gold Water for my drink (https://www.instagram.com/p/CF2KRW7hxeF/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link), visit Lynn University Campus, hang out on Downtown Atlantic Ave Delray Beach , etc.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
“I am forever thankful to my Queen Mother Ms. Patricia Nelson and my family, Mr. Johnny McDaniel, Communities in Schools, Mrs. Christine Lynn, illustrious Lynn University Alumni, Faculty, and Staff, and the illustrious Pride of Palm Beach Masonic Lodge #447 and entire Delray Beach Community” said Glover. “The CIS organization in conjunction with Lynn University’s generosity allowed me the opportunity to win in life. It’s an honor and a pleasure to be able to give back, and I hope that my support of the organization helps it continue to advance.
