About me

Hiking to El Eden, Mexico

Hiking to El Eden, Mexico

My name is Jake Jorgovan. I am a writer and entrepreneur.

I am the founder of Outbound Creative, we help agencies win their dream clients.  

At a young age I launched my first video production agency which quickly grew to working with several Fortune 500 clients and A-List touring artists. 

Since leaving that agency, I have been consulting and working with other companies to improve their sales process. 

While I am a sales & marketing consultant, my life is a bit different than most.
I don't have an office and I don't meet clients in person. 
Instead I work remotely and travel all over the world.
So far I have visited 18 different countries and the number is rising. 

Along the way I launched a podcast called Working Without Pants where I interview agency owners about their journey.  

Every week I publish a newsletter about creative entrepreneurship.

Story

Discovering my passion for media creation at the age of 15 years old

When I was 15 years old I started my first company. It was a recording studio that operated in the basement of my parents house. While I never made it big as a recording engineer, I learned something very important about myself in that basement.

My passion in life is creating media that inspires others. 

The fact that as one person I had the power to create a message or create entertainment that could then be shared with hundreds, thousands and millions of people became my passion and purpose in life.

That passion fueled me to turn that basement studio into a thriving business while in college at Belmont University. Over the course of four and a half years, we grew the company to work with A-List celebrities and Fortune 500 clients. 

It is that same passion for media that got me started with blogging. It is that same passion that drives me to continue creating media and sharing it with the world. 

In late 2013 embarked on a journey to work remotely and travel the world. I didn’t have a blog or anything generating income for me, so I did the only thing I knew how. I learned new skills, got hired and then moved down to Mexico. 

Currently I run Outbound Creative and help a handful of agencies win their dream clients. 


Art

One of my many drawings  

One of my many drawings

 

I try to make it habit of drawing on a regular basis. I don't do it because I want to be an accomplished illustrator someday. 

I do it because it is relaxing and stimulates creativity.

It is a mental break from any client work, projects or real life situations that I am dealing with.

Once a week, I try to dedicate just one hour to creating something that is purely for me. I don't get paid for it, it isn't for a client. It is just for my own enjoyment.

Somewhere along the line, a lot of us that are creatives stop creating for ourselves and start creating for others or to make a living. We lose touch with creativity

I encourage you, try to create just one piece of artwork per week purely for your own enjoyment. It will do wonders for you own creativity and mental health.
