Jonathan Harkless is a serial entrepreneur who enjoys helping business owners grow their revenue — and he’s good at it. His track record includes creating a strategic plan for a business in Dallas that led to 369 percent growth in 10 months.
Jonathan especially enjoys helping business owners in established industries innovate and aggressively move forward. He is industry agnostic, because he has found the underlying principles of business apply across the board. He has a firm grasp on sales, operation and finance, and his experience spans early-stage production, invention, IP and more. He also has a talent for early-stage product brand strategy development.
The Foundations of Success
Jonathan values trust as absolutely foundational to success.
“Trust is fundamental to business, with customers or internally within the company,” he said. “I believe the success of an organization is built on its people’s ability to build and follow through on trusting relationships. And yet the fundamental context by which people face life is one of distrust, which puts us all in a place of needing to build trust with our customers and the people with whom we work.”
Jonathan recently returned to his native Seattle and was thinking of buying a business when he learned about OneAccord. After meeting Jeff Rogers and hearing about what OneAccord was doing, he decided to join the team.
“I really liked the model of OneAccord," said Jonathan. "When you’re working together with people who have strengths in areas you don’t, you can be more productive. It’s a much better arrangement.”
OneAccord helps business owners meet their goals by not only laying out a plan of action, but walking alongside them and guiding them through that plan to the finish line. This series highlights the people who make that possible.
