Glen Wakeman is a successful businessman and entreprenuer. He founded LaunchPad Holding LLC in 2015. It is a software distribution company. He developed a five step program to help start up companies succeed (dailyforexreport.com). The five step program concentrates on risk management, human capital, leadership, power, and executing the business plan.
The idea for LaunchPad came because of Glen likes to match ideas with money. He said that many great ideas come from startup companies and he did not understand why so many failed. When he researched the problem he found that often businesses did not have a plan or structure to follow.
Glen Wakeman says that most people don’t realize that an idea is not a plan. Our company decided to come up with making business planning easier for startups. They designing an easier software platform for companies to use.
A typical day for him begins with reviewing data or numbers from the previous day. He reviews sales, customer service, and cash totals. He meets daily with his staff and assigns tasks like administrative tasks, sales meetings, and design revisions. During the day the staff researches competition and responds to customer inquiries.
One business trend that excites Glen Wakeman is machine learning or using data to solve business problems. It allows businesses to make improvements and faster decisions. He knows his curiousity helps him to find solutions to business problems and improve customer relations.
