Jack Reidenbach: The Importance of Influence & Networks in Business 

The entrepreneurial journey is never easy and can be a tough hurdle for many. You don’t only need to worry about the capital to fund your business but also to face and overcome any barriers. As a result, some young entrepreneurs have easily been knocked off their entrepreneurial paths, which can kill their business dreams. However, Jack Reidenbach is here to demystify this norm, coming out as a uniquely gifted entrepreneur and showing other young businessmen and women that they can do it. Reidenbach is leading the path to inspire and validate the importance of influence in a competitive business environment.

Reidenbach is a successful serial entrepreneur and investor. He is the founder and CEO of Main Line Soles, a premium sneaker wholesale and retail distributor brand. Reidenbach stands out as an industry leader in the sneaker and clothing distribution industry, where he has established a broad international network with stores and consumers. The Philadelphia-based entrepreneur also created networks with his fellow entrepreneurs and business owners in the area, which helped him create and establish his presence there.

The self-made entrepreneur began researching the finance and business world at a young age, leading him to establish a solid foundation for his career. His desire and passion for the business world allowed him to quickly understand the finance and investing world. Reidenbach was also quick to leverage social media “the right way” to build a platform for his business, allowing him to build a massive e-commerce clientele through social media and networking, including extensive international relationships with other business owners.

Reidenbach’s success and extensive knowledge of the business community saw him featured in the Wall Street Journal and Forbes at just 14 and 17, respectively. Today, the young entrepreneur believes in the beauty of getting started at a young age because it gives you a chance and room to learn from your mistakes and start again. 

“I was able to take risks and swing for the fence because I wasn’t afraid to lose or fail. I think that fear causes many people with good ideas to freeze up and never launch their concepts,” Reidenbach says.

Facing your fears and chasing your dreams will help you create a solid brand and command influence in your industry. This also makes it easier for you to create partnerships and relationships, which are vital in nurturing a small venture.

“I have so many people who have helped mentor, support, and guide me along the way. I’ve never been afraid to ask for help or surround myself with people who have skills that I don’t possess. I’m not artistically creative, so I’ve collaborated with people who possess those skills. I’ve always been able to surround myself with good people who can do those things that I can’t,” Reidenbach adds.

As he prepares for college, Reidenbach will continue expanding his business network. He wants to grow and expand into other sectors, such as real estate, sports, and entertainment. Reidenbach’s dream is to become a billionaire through his business ventures and enjoy the freedom that comes with that wealth. His goal is to build and create a charter school, fund an entire town’s school district, create jobs, and buy land for preservation. With the network and influence Jack Reidenbach has already built in his career, it is just a matter of time before this young entrepreneur achieves his dreams.
