36. JCron | The Exceptional Executive: E-Learning & Leadership

Jonathan Cronstedt, or JCron to those close to him, is a dangerously dedicated executive strategist. When he’s not driving outcomes for industry-leading brands or launching products online, he’s blessed enough to be married to Nicole, enjoys a freezer full of fabulous vodka, and a puppy named Stella.

A leader at the executive level in finance, digital marketing, SaaS/EdTech and direct sales, he is the current President of Kajabi and has worked extensively with Chet Holmes and the Tony Robbins Groups.
