Upon graduating from college, Jesse Ray started a career in sales which blossomed into setting company records, being a President’s Club Winner, and a Million Dollar Producer. However, during his corporate career, he knew he didn’t want someone else controlling his life. He sought time and financial freedom, and also realized he has a way bigger purpose.
For 5 years, Jesse struggled with the transition to Entrepreneurship. He lacked the confidence, mentorship and know-how to transition to becoming an entrepreneur. Now that he has officially retired from “Corporate America,” he wants to be that mentor and coach for others.
Jesse’s passions include working out, personal development, and building communities. He now dedicates his life to helping Entrepreneurs and aspiring Entrepreneurs to reach their full potential with the Growth House.
