With firsthand experience in starting and acquiring companies, Jon has bought three businesses and interviewed over 150 Serial Acquirers on his podcast, Top M&A Entrepreneurs.

Many aspiring business owners ask, "How can I buy a business to achieve wealth and independence?" Jon suggests a more pivotal question: "What do successful business buyers do that enables them to make their first acquisition?" He believes the answer lies in mastering a set of skills and tools, taking massive action, and maintaining persistence.

Jon's own journey reflects his teachings. His first venture faced challenges due to external policy changes, but he persevered, successfully growing and selling an e-commerce business on EmpireFlippers and maintaining a stake in his third acquisition. He co-founded TurboSquid, which raised $5 million before its acquisition by Shutterstock. Jon has also played a pivotal role in helping public companies raise nearly $25 million and achieve a NASDAQ listing.
