Jeremy has spent his entire life in Polk county. After graduating from Southeastern University with a degree in Business Management, he decided to stick around home. Near the end of his time at Southeastern, Jeremy realized that his two most prominent passions, aside from his faith, were entrepreneurship + community. He started his own digital marketing company, Brandspark, because of that truth. He loves the art of entrepreneurship and the path it paves to helping people succeed in pursuing their own passions. Jeremy can use his talents and abilities to push others forward, and he hopes that through Brandspark he will be able to foster community through entrepreneurship.

Who are your clients? We work with anyone looking to bolster their marketing efforts: businesses, nonprofits, and even personal brands.
What inspired you to become an entrepreneur? My biggest inspiration is my dad. I grew up watching him help people + their businesses and knew I wanted to do the same.
What are your short-term goals? I have a couple goals at the forefront currently. First, I want to get really plugged into Lakeland. I’ve found that even in digital marketing, relationships with people is what matters. Secondly, Diversify. I’d love to have clients across several industries and not rely too heavily on a small number of businesses.
What are some business wins? Starting! Also, finding communities like Catapult, Emerge, and the Lakeland Chamber, as well as developing an incredible support system to gain momentum.
Why Lakeland? I love the people and community-mindedness here. Business in Lakeland is absolutely booming right now. There are so many young businesses here who are making a huge impact but need help branding themselves.
How has Catapult helped you? It provides the environment, space, and people that help me be creative. Catapult has the friendliest business owners in the world working all in the same space.
What is your Secret Sauce? Remembering the big picture. Life is much bigger than business. At the end of the day, my fulfillment in life doesn’t come from the numbers I produce in my business. Knowing that takes a lot of pressure away and makes it more fun.
