So, you probably already know my name is Jason. Right? Okay.
What I do:
After almost 24 years as CEO of a service-industry company, I’m focusing all my efforts on being a Kolbe Certified growth consultant. (Don’t know what Kolbe is? Ask me! It will change your life.) I’ve already worked with hundreds of companies throughout the United States and beyond. I also travel the United States as a professional speaker — on topics ranging from team building to sales and marketing to crisis management.
People always ask me what industries I work with, and the honest answer is all of them — no, really! Insurance, finance, information marketing, service, real estate, nonprofits…though my experience is heavily vested in the service industry, I’ve learned that most businesses are essentially the same, regardless of industry, product or discipline. So if you’re a business with at least one employee that provides a product or service, you’re squarely in my wheelhouse.
In 2008 and 2009, I was honored and humbled to be elected president of PLANET (the Professional Landcare Network), the largest trade association for the green industry. It was an incredible experience running an international nonprofit, and I now serve PLANET as a lifelong past-president.
Life is grand. I love the good, bad and ugly of it — because I learn from absolutely everything that happens. And I share what I learn with everyone I meet.
I live in Kansas City. My family and friends come first in my life…always. I’m a son, brother, cousin and nephew. I’m also a sports fan: Love the Chicago Cubs and my hometown Royals. I bleed crimson and blue for the Kansas Jayhawks.
I can’t live without my Apple computer products — I have no idea how I lived before the iPhone. Oh, and I drink a lot of coffee. You’ve been warned.
