Jedediah has a long history as a successful business strategist and leader who has built multi-million dollar businesses across multiple industries. Despite being the target of an elaborate mafioso-style fraud scheme that included two attempts on his life, he played an important role in bringing down one of the most notorious conmen in North Dakota’s history. He’s battle tested, analytical, engaging, and gets results while having a whole lot of fun. Because he has actually owned and run businesses with hundreds of employees and has a natural love for people, he knows how to connect, gain trust, educate, and motivate his audience in ways that truly impact them. Many speakers today talk about the danger of fraud have have little or no firsthand experience of this in real business where fortunes are easily lost and success is hard won. It’s like making a claim that you have mastered the secrets of Mount Everest and are now qualified to lead a thousand men and women up its treacherous peaks…because you have read a really good book about it or interviewed other people who have. When you have no real tangible life or death experience climbing anything, are you really qualified to teach and train people to follow you and do the same?
Jedediah believes until you’ve been there and done it, you are not truly ready to share about the experience. You’re certainly not qualified to teach and lead others when you haven’t mastered it yourself. Degrees, books and discussions are great, but they are no substitute for actionable experience, in-the-trenches education where you learn what really works because you are actually doing it, and specialization as a result of battle-tested techniques and procedures. Would you let someone perform brain surgery on you with no hands-on experience? That would be crazy, right? Yet, countless people are trusting their life’s savings, security, and financial future to fraudsters and conmen everyday because they consistently fail to use simple, proven techniques for avoiding and preventing fraud. Jedediah nearly lost his life because he failed to consistently employ these techniques and now that he has developed a strategic formula for implementing these techniques he is eager to share this vital information with the world.
Jedediah’s speaking skills have been praised by all who have experienced how deeply he connects to and entertains his audience.

He regularly travels around the country to teach and train small business owners, entrepreneurs, and investors.
