He recently said that any entrepreneur should maintain a healthy sense of doubt about their business. This makes you very aware of what is going on in your industry and what you need to do in order to stay ahead of the competition. It is how an entrepreneur handles failures that decides whether they will be successful or not. Jason Hope says that failing teaches a lot more things to you than succeeding ever will.
When it comes to advertising your company’s products or services, he says that the most effective marketing takes place on social media, assuming you have the time to use it right. He says that social media is a great way to connect your brand to people. It’s easy to share news about your company and keep it at the top of consumer’s minds. It can also lead to new business opportunities.
He’s a futurist who is always trying to see where the field of technology is headed. Jason Hope says that it is the Internet of Things that will be the next revolution. Every type of device will be able to communicate over the internet, especially once 5G is enabled. This will help everyone by using resources more effectively, providing a safer environment, and making life a lot more convenient.
Jason Hope says that philanthropy is basically a second business for him as he pursues it passionately. One of his proudest moments of philanthropy took place when he handed over a $500,000 check to the SENS Foundation. This nonprofit is researching how to extend human life. Most healthcare research is focused on curing diseases. Instead, the SENS Foundation is researching how to prevent age-related diseases from occurring to begin with.
