Wally Gustafson is a business owner with more than 25 years of business experience. He’s had investors in a startup company that eventually failed. Without investors, he turned a basement business into a multi-million-dollar online retail business. He’s seen a 10-year trend of 25% year over year growth be followed by several years of 30% decline. Wally has learned more about business through his failure than his success. Wally is a graduate of the Olin School of Business at Washington University in St. Louis (MBA) and currently specializes in product development and overseas manufacturing. On top of business ownership, Wally is an author, illustrator, and voice actor. He recently launched “The Ben & Wally Show” a father-son YouTube show and podcast that discusses light-hearted topics in the world of sports, life, movies, and news while showcasing the joy of a strong father-son relationship.
