A business expert, Wes Berry built a remarkable $60 million-dollar international business. In his Best Selling book “Big Things Have Small Beginnings” he shares what he has learned, about leadership and business management.
Berry hosts his own podcast which has two distinct segments. “The People’s Voice” features current events, in a point-counterpoint format and guided by the principle that people can disagree without being disagreeable. “The Success Factor” segment focuses a spotlight on successful non-profits as well as corporate enterprises.
He’s collaborated on programming for several ABC and CBS television shows. His many media appearances include NPR, The Wall Street Journal, The London Times, Entrepreneur and Time Magazines, Fox News, Neil Cavuto, Geraldo Rivera, and John Stossel, to name a just few.
As an entrepreneur, Berry demonstrated a strategic style of management by building a multimillion-dollar brick-and-mortar business. In 1995, his business expanded to the clicks of the Internet, causing him to adjust his marketing skills to where they soon proved exceptionally well-suited to the new and radically different online arena. He operated several remarkable brands, including Flower Delivery Express, a $60 million dollar world-class business servicing millions of customers in over 150 countries. Over the years, he's provided consulting services to over 40 businesses, even while simultaneously establishing a retail franchise system that operated 30 units in five States. After a 40-year career, he divested himself of all business interests in 2016 and retired.
He's a graduate of Oakland Technical Center, having completed their Floriculture & Agriscience Program.
A dog lover, he enjoys fishing and is constantly humbled by his golf game. He and his wife Mia have four sons and have been married for 30 years. They reside in West Bloomfield, Michigan.
