Jason started his first business when he was 10 years old. It was a skateboard shop that he operated out of his garage generating about $150/month which allowed Jason to buy his first boombox radio which he used to hone his break-dancing skills. In 1991 Jason enlisted in the United States Air Force, received two Certificates of Appreciation and a Meritorious Service Medal and is very proud to have served his country.
He went on to own several businesses from an engineering recruiting firm, a real estate investment company, a couple of franchises and some marketing companies to name a few. He’s delivered motivational speeches for the likes of Honda and Home Depot before the ripe old age of 30. He’s consulted for Tony Robbins Business Breakthroughs Consulting Division helping several hundred companies from small main street businesses to multi-billion dollar multi-national organizations.
He currently hosts the critically acclaimed Big Pitch Radio Show which airs in 36 markets and can be heard by 7.9 million listeners. Jason is Founder of Business Radio Networks which hosts a series of shows including CEO Roundtable Radio Show. Business Radio Networks is the home of an additional 75 shows that will go nationwide by June 2016 with the sole intent of bringing the much needed and deserved exposure to small businesses and the entrepreneurs that run them.
