Dr. Puente's nine years as a Real Estate Broker/Owner of a licensed Brokerage has given him plenty of practical experience in the field of Entrepreneurship. He can pair the academic theories to the pragmatic application in the business world. Students tend to pay closer attention when they hear practical examples to go along with their lecture.
The other focus of Dr. Puente's teaching is that of today's dynamic Startup Digital Marketing. This is more than just concentrating on social media, but more of the analysis of big data on what currently is working in the market. His plan is to give a holistic idea to the students on how systematic marketing changes per the demand of the consumer.

"This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or I can use it for good. What I do today is very important because I’m exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone, forever, Leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, not loss, good, not evil, Success, not failure, in order that I shall not Forget the price I paid for it."

"A daughter may outgrow your lap, but she will never outgrow your heart."
"Mr. Puente does a great job in really keeping us interacting with each other, where you do not find that feature in most online classes."
Keon Arjmandi, Esq.
"Most knowledgeable real estate broker I have spoken to. When it comes to negotiation and strategy, I never come across someone with so much expertise. I would highly recommend him to anyone, with his knowledge, I felt like I was buying a home as an investor."
"My company needed a valuation on the financial worth of the current and former clients. This was a crucial factor for a legal matter which required a formal academic backing of numerical values. Will Puente was able to cite two business academic theories that fit the valuation structure of our clientele, one of them being the Lev & Schwartz Model of human capital valuation."
THOMAS-KILMANN CONFLICT MODEL
The TKI is designed to measure a person's behavior in conflict situations. "Conflict situations" are those in which the concerns of two people appear to be incompatible. In such situations, we can describe an individual's behavior along two dimensions: (1) assertiveness, the extent to which the person attempts to satisfy his own concerns, and (2) cooperativeness, the extent to which the person attempts to satisfy the other person's concerns.
