Wayne Oppenheimer is the host of Wine Up TV. Wayne has used his online interview show to grow his wine business in many new ways.
How did Wayne get started:
Wayne got laid off five years ago, and that’s when he found his passion in life. He started a Wine Tour business, then a wine show on YouTube, then a wine shop.
What inspires Wayne:
Passion – his education is economics, but his passion is wine.
Learning from a mistake:
Life is all about mistakes. And learning from them, like in the book Failing Forward by John Maxwell.
Kickstarter. Wayne wants to buy a Wine-a-bago and take it on a traveling road show around the country.
One indispensable piece of equipment:
Mark Newman – Wayne’s web designer and videographer.
Let’s talk money.
Wayne’s business is vertically integrated. He has a wine tour business, a wine club, a wine bar, an e-commerce site and he teaches wine classes.
