Jason was great! It was very helpful when he literally said, "If I were in your shoes, I would...." and proceeded to list of tangible, actionable steps that will help me move the needle. If you're looking for direct and clear advice. I highly recommend him.

Highly recommend Jason for a call. He really wanted to understand the problem and the whole situation and make you think of different variants before giving you his opinion. He really took you out of the box of your everyday thinking to better understand the situation and the problem you are facing. Thanks for it!

Had a great call with Jason. He gave me a good high-level breakdown of the different strategies available for growth and how to apply and evaluate them. Also made me think about what data I already have and how to leverage that for additional value without having to do anything new. Plenty to think about and definitely worth the time so thanks!

Just finished a great session with Jason. He was very tailored in applying his extensive experience/background to what I was looking for help on - hiring a remote marketing team. I could have easily chatted another hour! Super helpful, and an enjoyable experience with some clear takeaways. Thanks Jason.

Jason was a rockstar. Asked lots of insightful questions, listened, and ultimately delivered 3 very actionable tips, that I am in the process of implementing. From start to beginning, great energy, I knew I was talking to a veteran in Growth Hacking space.

Jason presented a variety of very creative solutions that our team would have never thought of. He even shared personal stories that related to our business and his insights as a potential customer proved incredibly valuable. I would highly recommend Jason to anyone looking to make a $1.00 out of 0.15 for growth hacking! I look forward to staying in touch with Jason as we continue to grow.

If you're seeking value bombs, you need to speak with Jason. After just having one brief intro call with him, I'm already looking forward to the next. He brings a progressive and well-rounded flavor of expertise to the table. Most importantly, he listens. His desire to fully understand my business and marketplace before making specific recommendations is very reassuring.

Had a call with Jason to get a second perspective on my content marketing initiatives here at GrowthMentor and boy, did he deliver! Jason's incredibly T-shaped so he understands how content marketing plays into the overall growth strategy. Highly recommended, make sure to take notes!
