Hi, I’m Jason, Founder of Sound Advice.

I created this platform to help professionals like you build the career and life you’ve always wanted.

Like you, I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I had to make myself into who I am today. My mom was a poor, single mother of two kids. I didn’t have any advantages in life. No money, no connections, and no time for education. Things were messy. No one gave me directions or instructions. I had to figure out on my own how to get out of the mess I inherited at birth.

All I had to cling to was an internal knowing that there was more to the world than what was immediately in front of me. And a drive to get there.

If I wanted to move up in the world, I had to figure out how.

So, I started with the place I knew best (where I didn’t need “credentials” or a degree): with people.

The only thing I know for sure in this world is that relationships matter. People matter.

Understanding the power of relationships was a key driver in my being able to elevate myself. If you understand what people are about, you can connect with them. And that gives you the ability to grow and foster a relationship. We all have the ability to connect with other people. It’s like a muscle. We’re all born with it, but if you don’t use and work it, it won’t grow.

Without help from my family or money or credentials, just that bit of wisdom guiding me, I managed to get myself through college, land many high paying jobs, start a business I love, find the woman of my dreams, and create the life I always wanted. The life I was searching for. The life I knew was out there.The life I knew I deserved.

You can create that life too.

You don’t have to settle. You don’t have to stay stuck in a career you don’t love and a life you were born with.

My mission is to help people. Sign up for my mailing list and I’ll teach you how to engineer your success, how to you rise above your circumstances, and how to get to where you want to be in this world ­ even if you don’t have the advantages that many people have, like money, connections, and credentials.
