Meet the financial analyst who left the corporate world to turn his knowledge of Excel into a seven-figure online business that gives him more freedom over his time and energy. Find out what Jon realized about the “status quo” of the knowledge commerce industry that made the value of Kajabi’s platform crystal clear to him.
transforms overworked professionals into confident Excel heroes.
Jon was the “techie” guy around the office that everyone always went to with an Excel question. He knew better than anyone that Excel was a very powerful tool with so many benefits, but it was overwhelming and hard to master.
Now, with Excel Campus, Jon has scaled his knowledge to help many more people than he would ever be able to reach in person. His online courses help students drastically improve their Excel skills, save time at work, and become the “Excel Hero” of their own office.
Jon Acampora is a self-identified “techie” and “numbers guy.”
These skills helped him create a successful career as a financial analyst, but he began to want more than the typical corporate life. The long hours, the commute, the office politics, aka the very common pain-points you always hear that inspire an entrepreneurial journey.
The uncommon part of Jon’s story is what he discovered when he got started.
Jon is the epitome of tech-savvy. He’s the guy other people went to with their questions. But when he wanted to start turning his knowledge into an online course, he ran into some obstacles.
“I started really kind of duct taping systems together because it was not easy, but I really quickly figured out even for a techie like me, it was tough. So I came across Kajabi after frustration with another platform I was on... I was just really impressed with what they had because it was so simple that brought everything on one platform.”
Jon was no stranger to best-in-class tools (like Excel), so if there was anyone who could recognize the power of Kajabi’s platform, it was him.
He took full advantage of everything Kajabi had to offer, including the on-demand training on how to grow and scale his new knowledge business the right way.
And because he took the leap, he was able to escape the corporate grind and create the life he always wanted for his family.
“Kajabi as the backbone of that business. That allows me to sleep well at night, but also just live this life of freedom. My wife's at home now, she's been able to leave her job as well. I have an eight month old baby boy that we get to spend every day with, which has been the coolest thing ever. I'd always wanted something like that.”
