Glen Wakeman Shares a Forgotten Secret to Business Success

Posted on April 28, 2018

As the CEO and Founder of LaunchPad Holdings, Glen Wakeman helps entrepreneurs turn their ideas into tangible, real-world plans. Having helped hundreds of businesses whose assets number in the billions, Glen is certainly no stranger to the big time.

However, Glen aims to up and coming entrepreneurs as well by offering his expertise in leadership development, strategy, capital markets, growth, and business transformation (https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180423006068/en/Glen-Wakeman-Reveals-Launchpads-Benefits-Mentoring-Early-Stage).

While Glen deservingly charges a premium for personal consultations and the like, he has also chosen to give back to the entrepreneurial community, and thus, he has become a mentor to many individuals who are hopeful to have their own run at business success.

Through his blog, Glen chronicles his business ventures, discussing emerging markets and international fiscal matters. He astutely writes about management, strategy, and administration, lending important knowledge to those who are eager to learn.

He also offers tips and blueprints for business success on his YouTube channel, and yes, all of this content is available for free. That’s pretty incredible considering that Glen has worked with and turned around businesses that are now worth billions of dollars.

With such an impressive resume, one would assume that Glen has achieved so much through hard work and perseverance, and although this is true, Glen himself is quick to point out that sometimes that doesn’t matter if you don’t have one thing; connections.

While working hard to move up in the world of business, it’s easy to forget everyone that you’ve met along the way. Glen suggests that an aspiring entrepreneur should stay in touch with every single friend and acquaintance; doing so might spell the difference between success and failure.

 

Glen advices entrepreneurs to not let time and distance separate themselves from others, and he recommends social media as a convenient way to stay connected to those who will be able to help, potentially with a substantial investment in the future.
