Also a native St. Louisan, John returned to the Show Me State in 1997 to pursue a career in the mortgage industry after making markets at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange for eight years. He worked as a loan originator and branch manager until 2005 when he decided to leave the mortgage industry. John moved into the financial planning sector where he worked until 2008 when he saw a greater need to help the small business community with their taxes. John earned the designation of Enrolled Agent from the Internal Revenue Service and began saving small business owners money on their taxes through his business 1040 Wealth Designs, LLC.
During the Great Recession, John began the St. Louis Small Business Meetup Group to encourage local business networking and growth. The meetup is the second largest in the St. Louis region with over 3,000 members and has held monthly seminars on every facet of marketing and running a small business. John also volunteered with two non-profit organizations in the St. Louis startup community and helped advise a number of startups on investor pitching, which saw one company obtain funding on the West Texas Investors Club cable television show.
Besides handling the financial aspects of JBC, John is also responsible for new business development and website production.
