Jason Leister started his career as a classical musician (pipe organ) at the Eastman School of Music. While there he won one of the most prestigious organ competitions in the country at age 19.
Not a bad start but not the ideal business career. He made the jump to client work and, after being fired from a $100,000+ contract, changed his business entirely.
Now, he’s a respected copyrighter and business consultant. Jason specialized in working with freelancers, consultants, coaches, professional service providers to help develop the mindset, strategies and skills required to do business on your own terms. If you’re in those industries, I highly recommend you listen to his interview and visit his website.
And, he’s able to hold all this down while maintaining an incredible relationship with his wife and 7 kids.
Jason summed it up when he said, “Although I didn’t end up where I originally meant to go, I’ve apparently ended up where I’m supposed to be, doing what I’m doing.”
