Monetize Your Business Model
I'm currently building a multi-sided marketplace, which presents a lot of optionality for revenue opportunities. Understanding which opportunities to pursue first can be very challenging.
Jared was extraordinarily helpful and was able to answer some succinct.
My call with Jared was great. He gave specific insightful advice on my issue.
Jared is incredibly helpful in almost everything. I am biased as his cofounder though. :)
SSI've known Jared for more than 6 years and have worked with him on numerous projects, both in and out of work. He is by far one of the most analytical and intelligent people I know. He works well in teams, yet still has immense personal drive to do things autonomously. I would jump at any opportunity to work with him on a project, regardless of my knowledge of the project. He is one of the few people whose judgment and abilities I trust unquestionably.
MCI have had the opportunity to work with Jared many times over the past 10 years. He is one of the most intelligent people that I have ever met, let alone worked with. He has the ability to formulate strategic goals and then has the know how to implement them successfully, all the while extracting the very best out of everyone he works with. He is self-motivated and comes across as professional and personable. I would recommend Jared in any endeavor that he wanted to pursue.
NAI'm happy to call Jared a colleague. He has created something incredible in Healthfundr and with all it's complexities it speaks to his intelligence and business acumen. If you ever have the chance to work with Jared you won't regret it.
