Hey, y’all! I’m Jonathan. I’m really excited to meet you in a real, relevant, and relatable way. On my YouTube channel, we’ll be having honest conversations about all things around personal development, professional development, and podcasting. After struggling to navigate life graduating college at 23—just working any and every job I could get —I began to see the light at the end of the tunnel by beginning to speak, and I decided to start my podcast and since then I have decided to dedicate my life to helping people share their stories and their message through speaking and podcasting. Today, I'm grateful by the grace of God, that’s what I’m doing every day through my company Jonathan Jones Speaks! You can rock with me on Instagram @jonathanjonesspeaks or online at
