San Diego’s number one most eligible entrepreneur bachelor goes to Greg Reid!


Greg has owned many companies, but found his true passion of speaking when he spoke at UCSD. He has turned his passion into a thriving business that includes authoring more than 40 books, speaking around the world and has added filmmaker to his repertoire.


Currently, he is in production of a film called Wish Man. Coming out this year, Wish Man tells the story of the creator and a co-founder of The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Frank Shankwitz. Greg asked Frank what wish he had and Frank said, “No one ever asked me, but I want my story to be told.” So Greg became Frank’s Genie and granted his wish, telling his story in the form of a movie for the whole world to see.


Greg’s best advice to anyone getting into business is to seek council, not opinion! In addition to seeking council, it is very important to surround yourself with those who have the same goals and vision you do. They will push you forward and not hold you back.


Greg has a wish, too. This year he wishes to find someone who will go with him on an adventure of a lifetime! This bachelor believes that life is about experiences and memories that you can make with another person.


Even though Greg has always been an entrepreneur, finding the switch that turns off business and turns on romance has made it difficult to find, or even make time for, emotional intimacy. Being an entrepreneur and having an entrepreneurial mindset really only allows room for another entrepreneur. Greg believes that having that mindset and freedom is the only thing that could allow a successful long-term relationship.


With great success comes great struggle! Dating as an entrepreneur has many challenges, especially when you have to portray yourself as a different person on stage. Having those two “different Gregs” can cause some confusion when this bachelor is dating, but he finds being upfront about it is the best way to go!


Although it can be tough, Greg did give us some great advice on dating! Be picky! So many people out there know what they don’t want, but not what they do want. Greg is focusing on what he does want by knowing his boundaries and not being afraid to say no!


The number one thing Greg recommends for dating is to be yourself because starting a relationship with open and honest communication is the key to a healthy relationship!


This bachelor loves bringing chivalry to dating! He loves picking a woman up at her home, holding doors, pulling out chairs, and being a true gentleman. So if you are looking for a relationship filled with travel, honesty, and the finer things in life, our number one most eligible bachelor may just be the guy for you!
