During his time in the Marine Corps, Jeremy Knauff had the opportunity to overcome many challenges. While these challenges helped him to become a better Marine, they also helped him to become a better entrepreneur later in life.
After serving, Jeremy Knauff transitioned back into civilian life where he quickly followed the path of entrepreneurship. But just like in the military, his civilian life did not follow an easy, smooth, or direct path.
His first business, launched in 2000, ended in failure and devastated his finances. He regrouped and launched another company that he ran successfully for a decade, where he helped thousands of businesses achieve success. He then suffered a health crisis that nearly killed him. Unable to work and faced with massive medical debts, he had to start over again.
Today, Jeremy runs Spartan Media, a digital marketing agency in Tampa, Florida, where he and his team help their clients get in front of more people and convert them into customers.
He shares his knowledge on digital marketing as a contributor at Search Engine Journal, Search Engine Land, Professional Builder, Construction Executive, and other publications, and has been cited by Forbes, Entrepreneur, CNN, The Business Journals, iHeartRadio, and other media outlets for his marketing expertise. In addition, he regularly mentors fellow veterans transitioning to entrepreneurship.
