Anyone who has heard of Glen Wakeman will know that he is no stranger to building a business and pushing it to thrive. Receiving his education at The University of Chicago, Wakeman then went on to have a 20-year career at GE Capital. During this 20-year period, he was able to live in six different countries while working in 32. During these years he was responsible for leading tens of thousands of employees along with working on many start-ups.
After years of working with multiple start-ups, Glen co-founded and is currently the CEO of LaunchPad Holdings
(Ceocfointerviews). This new business venture has allowed him to use his vast knowledge to become a mentor to those who are less experienced. Working with new start-ups along with many c-level executives, LaunchPad Holdings helps to form a solid business plan out of a loose idea. These services are crucial as they provide new entrepreneurs with a much higher chance of success than if they were to venture out on their own. The service of LaunchPad Holdings cost $100 and typically last about 30 minutes.
Writing is also a large part of Glens life and is also another way for him to share his knowledge with the world. His years working around the globe have made him knowledgeable in several markets, which he uses when writing his blog posts. Many times you can find him writing on topics such as emerging markets and international fiscal matters. These blog posts have also allowed him to give away somewhat of a free mentorship as he often posts his three-step-tips on how to grow and run a successful business. He also has a Youtube channel where he continues to share his knowledge.
Glen attributes a big part of his success to the relationships he has developed with people over time, and he encourages entrepreneurs to stay in touch with these people. He believes that social media can be a powerful tool for keeping in touch, as busy days and full schedules can overwhelm us. When it comes down to it, Glen Wakeman believes these people in our lives can be the difference between success and failure.
