(Glenview, IL)-Dave Yuen has more than his fair share of work experience in his lifetime and they have required a wide range of skill sets. As a former trial lawyer, Yuen first practiced criminal defense in DuPage County for four years and then civil litigation in Chicago for the last 12. Prior to practicing law, he put his computer science degree to good use as a computer consultant for five years.
His newest career will be his first time owning his own business, a Window Genie franchise that opened at 2700 Patriot Blvd, Suite 250, Glenview, IL 60026 on April 25, 2016. Window Genie is a national franchise that specializes in window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, and gutter cleaning.
Yuen has learned many things in the variety of careers he's had, including the fact that nothing can ruin a job like a bad manager, which is why he's so excited for the chance to be his own boss. "I didn't want to work for anyone else any longer," said Yuen. "I wanted to build something."
Now that he's working for himself, Yuen will be sure to put all of his career background to use in running his business. He intends to put his workers to good use by having"Technicians in place who can work on their own with little supervision and are able to train new hires as we continue to grow," said Yuen. That way, Yuen won't have to do every little thing himself.
Yuen was drawn to Window Genie due to the multiple services it provides and meeting new people every day. “I like the interaction with customers and meeting people every day. One of the main reasons I got into law practice was to help people,” said Yuen. “This business also allows me to help people in need, just in a different way.”
In the mean time, Yuen and his wife Maya will work together, using their combined skills to get the business to a point where they can hire more technicians. Maya, who is a physical therapist, will use her organizational skills and employee management skills to help benefit the company. "Each of us will be doing the work that fits our strengths the best," said Yuen. A well-matched team is essential for a successful business, so Yuen is lucky to have a life partner who will also make a great business partner.
