If you need a pair of fresh eyes, Jason can help you step back and rethink your growth strategy.

GrowthLook is like getting a fellow entrepreneur’s opinion about your business — except it’s someone who has the time to dig into the data and clearly articulate a path forward. If you’re stuck or uncertain, let Jason take a stab at it — he’ll open your eyes to what’s right in front of you.

Jason was an incredible resource for our growing team. Our business is on pace to hit 8-figures in revenue this year, and we needed tips on how to plan our growth team, growth strategy, and marketing channels accordingly. Jason's advice was top-notch. He came prepared to the call, shared incredible insights, and went into detailed explanations to back up his statements. Highly recommended. Thanks, Jason!

Jason is a powerhouse - he's incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to SaaS, quick to provide new ideas, and just a ton of fun to talk to. Feeling fired up + inspired after our call! He provided a handful of ideas I hadn't thought of when it came to approaching a new project we're working on and helped me see both our product + pricing model through a different lens. I'll definitely be chatting with Jason again as we get further along with our product. Thanks, Jason!

Side projects

I own Skylark (http://skylarkios.com), an iOS app that integrates with smart thermostats and devices and controls them via geofencing.

Ideal team

I work best with small, fast-moving and goal-oriented teams that see the potential of the work they do. I love to execute, measure and iterate quickly - making lots of small, informed decisions that lead to impactful results.
