Entrepreneur Jason Treu tells how he went from graduating law school to founding his own consulting business, helping the likes of Steve Jobs and Mark Hurd!
Jason Treu is a business and executive coach and sales leadership trainer. He is also the author of Social Wealth and a leading expert on human behavior, social influence, and relationship building.
At the heart of his strategy is the understanding that people and relationships are our true “wealth.” Everything we accomplish in life is with or through other people.
Jason graduated with law degree and a Masters in Communications from Syracuse University. He spent seven years in Silicon Valley working with transformational leaders such as Steve Jobs, Mark Cuban, Mark Hurd and others at companies such as Apple, HP, Microsoft, Oracle, Pixar, Yahoo! and many others.
He has helped his clients meet top influencers, such as Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Tim Cook, Peter Diamandis, Chris Anderson and others. Jason’s book has been a #1 best seller; has ranked #1 in four business categories on Amazon; and sold over 45,000 copies. In the past year, Jason has been a guest expert on more than 400 podcasts, radio, and TV shows.
He has studied with and learned hands-on from some of the world’s greatest experts, such as Tony Robbins, Marie Forleo, Mastin Kipp, and Brene Brown, and at leading institutions such as Harvard, University of California Berkeley and Ken Blanchard Companies. Over the past three years, Jason has helped his clients generate over a billion dollars in wealth.J
Jason lives in Dallas, Texas with a curious and energetic 15 year-old Jack Russell Terrier. He is active with charity events and cultural organizations (think, Dallas Museum of Art) and he is a huge sports fan (think, Cowboys and Mavericks). Jason also loves champagne and barbecue. Separately.
