From growing up in a small rural community to achieving billionaire status, Jason Hope´s story is one of persistence and passion. While most people spend their time trying not to fail, he has spent his life trying to make a difference.
By following his own set of rules, Jason was able to achieve success by creating multiple companies from scratch and becoming an award winning entrepreneur. Today, he enjoys giving back to the community by investing in other entrepreneurs and providing them with the tools they need to change their lives. Instead of having aspirations to become a pro athlete or an actor like many children his age, Jason Hope wanted to grow up to be just like his dad.
Jason’s dad was a hardworking man that taught him the value of honesty and integrity. While he only completed high school, he could fix anything and everything around their home by himself. His resourcefulness would later prove to be very useful for the visionary in his future business ventures. When Jason Hope made it to college at ASU, he decided that he wanted to take his education into his own hands. Jason decided that he could be different by taking part in student government and making friends with the top kids on campus. This unorthodox approach allowed him to participate in campus activities and make new connections.
