From known Realtors and Attorneys to wealthy retirees, Jason's mobile business eventually stretched across West Hawaii to Kailua Kona.

 

In 1992, Fox graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship & Small Business Management.

Securing $950,000 in sales in 2000, he assisted in recruiting and trained 40 employees. Jason generated leads presenting at medical conventions across the US, bringing him valuable experience in the marketplace.

 

Unfortantely, Senior Management made promises on software upgrades and mired the company in litigation. Once again, Jason absorbed invaluable experience and took priceless insight to future projects. Facing immense challenges only fed his desire to overcome any obstacles, and move forward. Preferring Orange County, Fox returned to Laguna Beach.

 

In Irvine, he supervised 130 telemarketers at US Telecom's outbound call center offering the lowest long-distance rates in the country.  In 2004, Jason was recruited by Integrated Sales Management (ISM) and introduced clients like Unified Grocers and Yokohama Tire to Customer Relationship Management (CRM).

When markets crashed in 2008, the company reorganized and eliminated its employees. Jason began consulting with start-ups like Utelogy, and Applied Knowledge, Inc. He implemented Salesforce.com for small businesses, providing his creative marketing and lead generation skills.

In 2014, Fox completed San Francisco State University's Graduate Program for certification in Social Media Marketing. Jason imagined utilizing his personal and professional experience in a more meaningful way. Prior to the pandemic, he envisioned therapy over the internet becoming widely accepted as a Licensed Counselor. The innovative concept would give him the ability to manage a practice from anywhere in the world. Jason decided to combine his technical background with a humanitarian focus.
