“Marketing is sharing your brand story with your targeted audience. The more you understand what marketing is, the better off you’re going to be.” -Jaime Jay
The Start of an Entrepreneurial Journey
Jaime’s entrepreneurial started at the very young age of 12 years old. Their family lived near a golf course in Colorado that time. He and his brother saw the opportunity, and sold lemonades just across the golf course.
They knew they’ll earn money if they charge it a little bit. Eventually, they decided to start another business endeavor. So, they collected golf balls and sold them.
Experience in the Corporate World
Jaime loved the idea of working and earning since that childhood experience. As their family passed by some huge corporate buildings one night, he had the inspiration to venture into the corporate world.
“One day, that’s going to be me. I’m going to be on top of the building.” -Jaime Jay
He pursued it years later, and spent some time in the technology sector and the radio sector. But, it turned out to be very restrictive.
Serving Clients Better
Jaime left the corporate world and started his own business, a real estate ad agency in California. But by 2008, he lost all of his clients. He needed to start over.
“In order for me to move at the pace that I wanted to move at, I really have to have the ability to make a decision on the fly so that I can serve my clients better.” -Jaime Jay
That’s when he took his knowledge and expertise in websites and marketing, and founded Slapshot Studio. Jaime never looked back since then.
