A business question asked of Glen Wakemen was if he could begin anew what would he do differently.

Mr. Wakemen says that having contacts can at times spell the difference between success or failure. If you have connections and contacts you might be able to secure funding, get sales and have customers.

You should try and keep as many contacts and connections as possible.
