Ask Who First



Making Business Breakthroughs

Hey there! I’m Jake Wiley—a podcaster, entrepreneur, CPA, former CFO, and your Chief Asker of Who. With nearly two decades of experience, I’ve built businesses, solved problems, and implemented solutions.

My story began in Atlanta where I grew up facing financial constraints and limited opportunities. Both of my parents didn’t go to college and my dad passed when I was just nine years old. My mother single-handedly raised me and sacrificed literally everything to give me the education she didn’t had.

Growing up, I was plagued with self-doubt– always worried that my efforts are not be enough to keep my scholarship or excel in my career. But there’s one thing I knew deep inside: that I always possessed an unwavering entrepreneurial spirit, eager to carve my own path in the business world.

Sure, the journey wasn’t easy. It was filled with hardships and challenges that would test my resilience. But through these difficulties, I discovered that seeking guidance, insights, and support from the right people can elevate one’s life in unimaginable ways. I learned that success is not a solitary pursuit, but a collaborative effort.

Why Ask Who, First?

After losing my dad, I was forced to to grow up a little quicker than my mom would have wanted. I had to figure out how to make my own path.

And I believe that’s a common theme for most of us. Maybe not as dramatic as I went through but we’ve all been in that moment where we had to figure things out for ourselves. We all encounter moments of doubt and uncertainty, questioning if we’re making the right choices.

That’s why I believe in the power of asking the right questions and why we embrace the philosophy of “Ask Who First.”

But what does it mean, and why is it vital?

“Ask Who First” is about seeking guidance and surrounding yourself with the right people for personal and professional growth. It acknowledges that we don’t have to face challenges alone and that there are individuals who possess the knowledge and experience we need to move forward.

By asking “Who first?” we tap into the collective wisdom of those who have walked the path before us. Seeking the right people grants us valuable perspectives, new possibilities, and helps us avoid unnecessary pitfalls.
