Member Highlight: Seed of Idea to Growing Successful Company – Jon Tucker
As a community of entrepreneurs and leaders, we’ve experienced how difficult the entrepreneurial journey can be. We’re proud to share a story from one of our member’s successes.
It’s a story of business started from an idea discussed in a Junto meeting and then translated into reality through the skills and action of our member and his team. Jon Tucker, the CEO of Compete Marketing, launched a venture HelpFlow eighteen months ago.
It was a huge success going from idea to a five figure monthly sales in six months to six figure monthly sales in 12+ months!!
Jon is a long time Junto member attending almost every meeting for almost five years. When he started in Junto he worked at an entry level role at a large Digital Agency. After a year there he decided to launch his own online agency: Compete Online. Over time, Jon grew the agency but faced the same challenges that all online agencies face. Scaling a services business. In Junto, another member introduced a trend he saw to productize online services.
He cited several companies doing with success including wpCurve, Design Pickle, kudio.io. We discussed other services that could be productized. Jon was particularly interested in the discussion and set the “intention item” of continuing to develop ideas along this business model. He did! Over the next thirty days, he came up with the idea for and launched HelpFlow. A productized chat service for high traffic e-commerce websites. He was introduced to mentors, customers, vendors and strategies supporting him in turning his intention into a reality.
Like I said, within six months of launching the company was doing five figures in sales per month and soon on its way to be a million dollar plus company.
This is what Jon says about Junto’s role in his life and business:
”Junto has been the most important part of my career so far. By staying connected with such a powerful and motivated group of peers and meeting regularly over the past few years, we’ve all helped each other build successful businesses and more important successful lives. I’m constantly humbled by the accomplishment of this group, and I’m so happy to have been able to surround myself with this group.”
