Entrepreneur Glen Wakeman is a busy man. A typical day for him includes getting to the office and immediately checking the cash totals, sales, and service performance numbers from the previous day. This can take a while but is worth it. Then he meets with his business partners to discuss administrative and management tasks, paying the bills, design revisions, and they divvy up the daily tasks. Glen and his associates also research and review customer inquiries, respond to emails, customer trends, and other tasks at hand that need to be addressed. Being productive is very important to Glen Wakeman so trust, being organized, and dividing up tasks makes the days more productive. He is also influenced by others and needs their feedback when he has new ideas. Some ideas are great, while others are not. Getting feedback helps him make sense of his plans and ideas. Glen is also highly curious. He finds that it is his best trait. Instead of giving up on things easily, he is curious to find solutions and is a great problem solver.
Glen Wakeman has had a very successful and longstanding career in finance and business. He worked for GE Capital in high positions of authority for over 20 years. He was also the Chief Executive Officer, President, and Chairman of the Board for Doral Financial Corporation. He is Founder and CEO of Nova Four. Currently, Glen is the Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at LaunchPad Holdings LLC. With all his success, he would change things and recalls a horrible job from the past. The only job he could get during the summer recession was cleaning an automobile parts factory bathrooms. It was gross and sweaty. He definitely did not like it and found it to be miserable (Wikipedia). He had to do it to pay his way through college. Looking back one thing he would do differently would be to keep better track of acquaintances and friends. Whether it’s a group of folks or one person, it could be the difference between your success in business and not. Glen thinks that social media is a great way to keep in touch with people and a helpful tool for business.
