Glen Wakeman of Launchpad Holdings, LLC believes in the mantra that ideas need to be turned into plans to avoid failure in the future. His scope is mainly in businesses that are starting up. Usually most budding entrepreneurs often have no idea where to start, how to avoid or tackle unforeseen problems and how to target and improve the performance of the business. He mentors the clients one on one and his highly experienced in top shelf start-ups not to mention those in the online retail sector.
In the early stages of entrepreneurship, Mr. Glen Wakeman reveals that he mostly comes across the following scenarios. The first one is when some of the client’s ideas are not well articulated and in such a case, Launchpad does what it does best and that is it offers more advice on the need to lower risks. While in the second scenario, some of the entrepreneurs with the excitement of startup may mistakenly overstrain themselves with responsibilities. In both cases, the firm analyzes the situation and important responsibilities are sorted out. Thirdly is the group that may feel no need of making any changes even after seeking third-party opinion on the business they are to undertake.
The mentor-ship offered is of the essence to the clients as it helps clear the path for the picking of the best business sector to venture into. A good example in which Glen’s firm help turn things around for its clients is with Uber. The client was for the idea of services as provided by the online taxi, Uber but was mentored accordingly hence helping the entrepreneur come up with one of the most successful businesses in the world today.
