As a US Navy Submariner, Jeff Barnes traveled the world underwater at extreme depths, running a nuclear power plant and sleeping with torpedoes while learning invaluable skills. His innate leadership ability and understanding of complex systems allowed him to run the largest division on his submarine and take charge of the ship’s quality control program.
After an honorable discharge from the Navy, Jeff took his expertise and experience to Corporate America, helping clients grow their businesses as a risk management consultant, while also coaching and consulting small business owners on the side. This led to Jeff running his own division inside a Fortune 500 Company focused on technology and innovation, leading multiple international innovation projects, and bringing new products and services to the global market. As a result of this exposure, Jeff has given training to thousands of executives and on how to utilize technology and innovation to grow a business.
As an entrepreneur himself and best-selling author, Jeff has trained, coached, and consulted with hundreds of entrepreneurs and business owners to implement complex growth-systems to help them scale their companies quickly. Jeff spends most of his time helping entrepreneurs and business owners quickly grow their businesses to make a positive impact in the world. During his free time, he sits on the board of Lifeschool, nonprofit helping kids gain life-skills they don’t learn in school. Jeff also spends a great deal of time coaching his two boys’ sports teams, enjoying the outdoors and traveling.
