MEET OUR TEAM

Jeff Lerner

CoFounder / CEO

Jeff Lerner is a Serial Entrepreneur, Speaker, Author, and Musician.

A native of Houston, TX, Jeff spent most of his 20s attending university by day while working nights as one of Houston’s top working piano players – a “gig” which often found him playing in the homes of billionaires, CEOs, and business owners. This exposure inspired in him an interest in entrepreneurship and business.

 

In 2008, at age 29, after multiple failures including a restaurant franchise that left him with over $400,000 in debt, he found his calling as a digital marketer (and paid off his debt in 18 months).

 

Over a decade later Jeff is an in-demand international speaker and active founder/cofounder of several successful companies:

  • Awesome Marketing - an Inc 5000 digital marketing agency 

  • ENTRE Institute - an online education company

  • 7 Mile Digital - a consulting & lead generation company

 

Jeff is also a shareholder in Jump, a marketing SaaS company for SMBs, where he consults, speaks, and serves as their Head of Strategic Partnerships.

He is married, an active father to 4 children, and still plays the piano an hour a day.

A 15+ year veteran of Internet entrepreneurship Adam is one of the most sought after operational consultants and system builders in business today.  He has personally created and grown online companies into multiple 8 figures and been one of the most successful "behind-the-scenes" Internet entrepreneurs of the last decade.

Many aspiring online entrepreneurs struggle to understand how to use this wonderful technology to make money and grow a business.  My job is to untangle the web of tech confusion and guide you through the "juicy" online marketing stragies needed to move your business towards higher profits and less stress.

One of my greatest joys is to see a customer that I've mentored use these skills that they've learned from working with me to build and grow a killer business!  Ic an't wait to work with you as well.
