A Journey To Financial Independence Using The Wealth of Others

About Me

Jonathan Williams

Jonathan Williams is a digital marketing expert who has helped trade associations, nonprofits, national corporations, and local businesses connect with their audiences to drive action since 2007. In 2019, he started on his journey to financial independence using the wealth of others.

For eight years starting in 2011, Jonathan worked at a nationally known digital marketing agency helping lead the digital campaigns for issue advocacy, brand reputation, crisis communications, and marketing clients all over the country.

Here, he worked with internal stakeholders to help build their brand, recover their reputation after a crisis or drive targeted audiences to take some sort of action online that would have a real-world impact offline.

In July 2019, Jonathan left the agency to become a solo marketing practitioner and form his own digital consultancy. His first client was his family’s real estate business where he also holds his Missouri real estate salesperson’s license. Since then, he has worked with other clients, overseeing their digital strategy and managing their online advertising campaigns.

In addition to his work life, Jonathan also volunteers his time with Need by Need, a nonprofit he founded in 2007 that focuses on helping other nonprofit groups in need. Through that role, he has helped a variety of nonprofits across the country with fundraising for specific items to managing their ongoing online advertising campaigns.

A St. Louis, MO native, Jonathan attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in political science and minors in advertising/public relations and English. In 2017 he married his wife Sarah and after living in Tampa, FL for three years, they moved to Wilmington, NC where they currently reside.

"[F]or spending the wealth of others will not diminish your reputation, but increase it, only spending your own resources will injure you."
