👋🏻 Jacob here. I’m the ‘kid who fixed the VCR’ and a nerd who coded websites in middle school.
I started several businesses as a kid. I was a web developer, disc jockey, caterer, photographer, resume writer, and video editor.
However, I got my first break as a journalist and an editor for ‘The Deadliest Catch’ with Discovery before shifting to a marketing career in Silicon Valley.

Why I Do It
I quickly grew into VP and C-Suite marketing roles, but I wasn’t happy.
Even though I made great money, which I thought was the key to happiness, my work was meaningless. As a result, I often joined companies for more money, not passion.
I never want anyone to make those shallow mistakes.
It hit me that I needed to use my experience in storytelling and growth to help other leaders tell their stories and market themselves better for more fulfilling careers.
My journey has led me to my big mission: to help others love what they do.
