That’s right! Our very own co-founder and CEO Jason Turnquist has been named as one of the Phoenix Business Journal’s 2023 class of 40 under 40. This award honors influential individuals who manage to balance being on the fast-track to incredibly successful careers with making a noticeable impact in their field and their community. We may be biased, but we think that this honor was very well deserved!
Who is Jason Turnquist?
Jason is Fyresite’s co-founder and CEO, but he’s also much more than that. A devoted husband, dog dad, raccoon enthusiast, and golfer, Jason co-founded Fyresite with his childhood friend Sean Elstins with one goal. That goal? To build sites that work.
Today, Fyresite builds marketing websites, mobile apps and enterprise e-commerce for top clients, succeeding in their original goal. In fact, Fyresite even has become Arizona’s first Shopify Plus partner!
Now with a powerful team of designers, developers, project managers, product owners, and marketers, Fyresite has become a one stop shop for businesses that want a partnership that they can trust. You can check out some of our amazing work here.
What Advice Can He Offer?
This Arizona State University alum has plenty of advice to share. Are you looking to start your own business, or just want advice on how to be successful with your career? Maybe you’d like to make an appearance on the 40 under 40 list someday. Here’s our 40 under 40 honoree’s best advice.
“Stay humble, have empathy and always remember that you can do anything you want if you work hard at it,” says Jason.
And if you want to know some good advice that he regrets not taking himself?
“Don’t worry what other people think,” is what Jason quotes as the best advice that he didn’t take. It’s hard not to care about what others think, especially when it comes to your business and your work. However, if you take his earlier advice on being humble, empathetic, and hard-working, you will have more confidence in yourself and your business.
