ORLANDO, Fla. - Nov. 14, 2023 - Joshua Wallack, author of REGARDING VICTORY: Adventures in Entrepreneurship Led Back to Love, is a seasoned entrepreneur and leader in the $75B Orlando entertainment and hospitality industry. As the chief operating officer of Mango's Tropical Cafe, his company was an integral component in redefining leisure, entertainment, and land use regulation in the Central Florida region.
With deep family entrepreneurial roots, Wallack’s journey was anything but conventional. His efforts have not only bolstered the local economy but have also garnered multiple accolades including the Orlando Business Journal’s 40 Under 40, C-Level Honoree, CEO of the Year in 2017, and Power Player in 2022.
In 2020, Wallack completed a legendary deal with The Walt Disney Company for the world’s largest dynamic digital art installation spanning 337 feet and weighing 250,000 pounds. This installation is regarded as one of Orlando’s tourism industry’s most notable developments and the first commercial installation off of Disney property in 55 years.
“No matter what level of success, wealth, or achievement you may attain, none of it matters at all if you don’t bring it home to a house full of people you love and who love you,” writes Wallack in the book.
REGARDING VICTORY: Adventures in Entrepreneurship Led Back to Love
Wallack achieved success and notoriety at a young age but at the cost of nearly losing his family. At the age of 44, laser-focused on the 24/7 grind of entrepreneurship, his marriage suffered with a brief separation from his wife.
“Without love, without her, I was lost,” recalls Wallack.
Wallack penned REGARDING VICTORY as a book on business acumen and a 40-year personal journey to success, but leans in as a cautionary/evolutionary tale.
“It is far too common in American society, as we relentlessly pursue wealth, stability, and professional ascension, to forget to be conscious of all the aspects of our lives that bring real fulfillment and joy. We may have to go through pain, but we have the power to change,” Wallack says.
In REGARDING VICTORY, Wallack discusses:
• Why ‘the big idea” is always the key to an entrepreneur’s journey and who ‘the driving force’ of the company is
• Guiding principles through the COVID pandemic that flatlined business, navigating complex strategies, and executing a one-of-a-kind redemption (economic & emotional)
• What saved him from almost losing his family, and rediscovering happiness and love
• The history of the deals with Amtrak, Hertz, Nickelodeon, Disney, Walgreens, Skyplex, and many more as well as the business theory and stratagem used in each case
