“If you’re not obsessed, you’re not going to win.” – Jason Arcemont
Welcome back Story Tellers! Today’s main character is Jason Arcemont, (@jasonarcemont)
A Serial Entrepreneur, Speaker, Author, Endurance Runner, BBVA Compass smallbusiness ambassador, and more, Jason Arcemont is undoubtedly a dynamic individual. Setting goals and crushing them seems to not only be a common quest for him but what he thrives for. He truly evokes what it is to live an “experiential life”; a principle he speaks about so often.
As the founder of several Inc. 500 companies, Jason has developed the recipe for building powerful organizations. Both in terms of revenue growth and corporate culture alike. With a combined staff of nearly 100 employees, Jason has shown that his passion for leadership is not only present but extremely effective as well.
Jason’s athletic and philanthropic endeavors have proven to be of similar merit. In October 2014, he ran a record-breaking 859 miles across Texas, all in effort to raise awareness and money to combat human trafficking and child sex slavery. Over 30 marathons in 30 days, Jason did the unthinkable and proved mind over matter, just as he does in his professional career as well.
