When people think of chief executive officers of companies they think of someone stuffy and withdrawn. Bob Reina is a CEO who bucks this trend as he is known to be pretty down to earth and accessible to the employees of his firm. He founded a Brandon, Florida based business called Talk Fusion which offers video communication solutions to individuals and businesses. While he works hard during the day he also enjoys bringing in his rescue dog Bindi to work and petting her during the day. He is said to be a humble guy who hasn’t let the success of his company get to his head.
Talk Fusion is in the direct sales industry. Before garnering experience in this industry Bob Reina has served in the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office as one of its deputy’s. He says it was while serving in this position that he entered the network marketing industry as a side hustle. He said starting out in this industry was tough but he persevered. It was hard, though, when in some months his commission checks were smaller than his phone bill.
He says that he knew going into this industry that you only get out of it what you put into it. He says he puts in a lot of “sweat equity” before finding success. He says he also enjoys earning money by working as a member of a team. He worked for other companies before developing one of his own ideas into Talk Fusion.
In order to get everything accomplished for the day, Bob Reina says that he gets up at 5:30 am each morning. He checks emails and sees what his priorities should be for the day. Everyone arrives at Talk Fusion’s headquarters at 8:30. He spends a good chunk of the day working with his marketing and IT teams. He also keeps busy hiring and managing people throughout the day.
He says that he finds needs people have and then thinks of ways of filling them. He talks with the product developers he has in Dallas, Texas, about these ideas and how they can be implemented. Talk Fusion is often adding new products and services due to collaborative work like this. Learn more: https://medium.com/@bobreinatalkfusion/have-you-given-up-on-your-dreams-b2c37849845a
