Featured in CNN Money Edition, Jesse Stoddard’s primary aim is to make his mark in the world by exploring new ideas, enhancing collaboration and cooperation with teams, and working in his unique ability, which is transferring infectious enthusiasm, taking action, and loving people in order to gather and connect with others to pursue a bigger, brighter future.
Jesse’s mission is to make good bolder with his writing and art, in order to serve God, and in such a way that he illuminates truth, shines a humorous light on our human imperfections, and reminds us all to be humble while pointing us to what’s right.
Jesse Stoddard is the Founder and CEO of the Stoddard Agency, a full-service marketing agency specializing in lead generation. A good way to describe him is as a Virtual CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) and lead generation specialist, delivering a reliable stream of leads that convert into new clients, customers, and patients on a consistent basis.
He started his business life as a fitness professional in his twenties, with over sixteen years of experience as a gym owner, personal trainer, and consultant to other fitness pros all over the world. He wrote two books in the fitness industry, including Free Gym Memberships, and How To Build Your Own Fitness Boot Camp, hosts a top-rated niche industry podcast The Fitness Boot Camp Inner Circle and was featured in CNN Money Edition.
A few decades later, he helped a 13.8 Million dollar service-based business grow at a startling rate of 40% and spent a year providing marketing strategy consulting and services for a diverse range of clients from law firms to dentists to financial services firms to real estate brokerages.
Jesse also is the founder of CrackpotComedy.com and directs and performs in an improv comedy troupe. He lives in Snohomish, Washington with his wife Mae, two kids Phinneas and Keira, and his Power Pomeranian, named Fizzgig.
As a passion and occasional paid-basis, Jesse is an actor, writer, director, and a producer of independent films, theater, and video projects.
Jesse’s primary fascination is the performing arts. He wants to make good bolder in the field of entertainment. He aims to do that by exploring new ideas, enhancing collaboration and cooperation with teams, and working in his unique ability, which is enthusiasm.
In his twenties, he was a professional musical theater performer traveling the United States while running his businesses. He also had a brief stint as the manager of an aerial acrobatics group as well as the production manager for a prominent regional theater that launches new Broadway shows.
(He found out that he would much prefer to be in the shows, rather than acting as travel agent.)
He has directed, choreographed and performed in a variety of capacities and started an improv comedy troupe called Crackpot Comedy, where he teaches people right off the street how to explore their improvisational muse and get on the stage to perform.
