1370 – Creating Experiences for the Customer with The Myers Development Group’s Jerome Myers

In this episode of the Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge speaks with the Founder of Myers Development Group LLC, Jerome Myers.

Myers Development Group, LLC works with people in financial services to build their leadership skills. Jerome talks about scaling businesses by having people that know the mission and take actions that align with the business vision without the leader's direction. He also digs into the lack of customer experience in financial services. Jerome shared that people are more interested in the experience. They want to know that any actions are done in their best interests. He also works with people who struggle with imposter syndrome and those who can't find their real purpose. Jerome and his team guide these individuals to get them to a place where they candidly speak about the wealth they acquired and how they're making a difference in the world through it.

About Jerome Myers: Jerome Myers (a/k/a “J”) is a developer of people and places. He is the founder and Chief Inspiration Officer of two ventures. DreamCatchers is a boutique coaching firm that supports first and second generation wealth creators to self actualize and attain transcendence, and The Myers Development Group, where we help ordinary people invest in multifamily real estate in a way that creates generational wealth. Through these entities he gets to live out his childhood dreams of helping people manifest the things they imagine and he is the evidence that dreams should be real. Since leaving corporate America after building a 20MM division, J has become one of the most sought after thought leaders in the multifamily development space. 

His company, The Myers Development Group, built a multi-million-dollar portfolio following the principles of Myers Methods.

Although he's often told that he makes investing look easy, the people closest to him know the road wasn't without challenges.
