It is a true joy for Jake to help nonprofits achieve fundraising goals they had previously deemed impossible. This joy is something that's rooted deeply in his personal philosophy: to believe in and strive for greater things. As a fundraising consultant, he leverages corporate sales methods to help nonprofits win bigger donations.
Jake's journey in sales and persuasive communication began at age 15 when he got a job as a door-to-door sales rep. Today, he's knocked on nearly 100,000 doors, sold millions of dollars worth of products, and led his own sales team to INC 500 success - twice. Having done this, he teaches fundraising teams how to confidently navigate past their funding obstacle so that they can see their mission through.
As a dedicated student of persuasive communication, he launched a podcast in 2019 focused on helping others (and himself) to strengthen this skill. The show, "Persuasion School", can be found wherever podcasts are listened to!
