Mike Wolber shares how he went from Corporate to the Apartment business

From working in a huge company to a small start-up, Mike gave us an insight into how he came into the apartment industry. It all started when was looking for technology companies in Bend, Oregon. There, he realized that there wasn’t a lot. This was the start of their self-storage business, one of the first verticals of G5.

His favorite part of his current role is being at the forefront of the companies transformation and being able to help pioneer education and bring innovation, making it more accessible to the industry. He also highlighted the biggest differences that he felt at Nike; the company’s main focus is on the consumer, whereas coming to G5 he and the rest of the team are all about the customers and making as much time as possible with their customers no matter what size they are. G5’s culture, technology, products, marketing, and message are wrapped around what makes the customer tick. 

Aside from having a successful career, Mike also shared his passion for triathlon. He admitted that the people who knew him back in high school or early college knew a very different Michael. For about two and a half years he went from being a fit athlete in high school to gaining about 75 pounds. He was solely focused on college and playing video games like World of Warcraft at that time. But he had a bit of a wake-up call. He threw away a couple of thousand dollar video game computer and told all of his friends and family in Alaska that he was going to lose 50 pounds that summer. So rather than having a lunch break during his nine-to-five job that he was interning at, he joined a gym and did an hour of exercise every day. He didn't hit the 50-ton goal that summer but a year later he lost about 75 pounds and long story short, when he started working for Nike, he kind of rediscovered an identity and had a crush on a girl named April, who’s now his wife. She was a runner and he thought that if he was to start running, it might impress her. His competitive nature eventually led him from running to adding swimming and biking to his routine, thus the passion for triathlon came in. He completed three Ironman triathlons and joined several local triathlons after.

With  all the wonderful stories he shared about his work and lifestyle, he excitedly shared his advice for his younger self: one is aside from making sure to professionally and personally hone our soft skills, it is also best if we allocate more of our time picking one
specific technical skill that we would classify as more of a hard skill, whether it be learning how to code sequel or JavaScript or learning how to be a Salesforce admin. A hard skill that we are all passionate about because with this duo, and with the right mentors, we will be able to climb our way securely to success. And last is to be grateful to those who raised us because, without them, we wouldn’t be who we are now. This a touching note that we are sure his parents would be proud of.
