Hidden Pages

Welcome!

Love is the ultimate trump card. Oft times, I fail to relay that to those in my life, whether personal or in business, but I'm a work in progress.

Erin Baker stole my heart in 2001 and I've never asked for it back since. We've been married now for nearly a decade, and have a 3 year old son named Elias Kindle (as in, to stoke a fire...). We've traveled together, grown together, transitioned together and learned together. A year and a half ago, we moved to Redding, CA to go through the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry together, and just graduated First Year. We've enrolled for 2nd Year, and are so excited and blessed to be spending our summer here in this amazing culture. Erin's passionate about childrens' health, and is a pediatric nurse, though she's not working right now.. She's also a terrific Mama and wife.

We both want Truth in our lives. I know that sounds a bit hokey, but there's more than what we see going on daily. We deeply desire to see God's Kingdom come to earth, just as Jesus prayed, within our lifetime. 

Professionally, I've had a pretty crazy career. From 2002-2005, I was with a resort development company called Land Resource Companies. I quickly promoted from Sales Executive to Sales Manager to General Manager to Regional Manager, and then they fired me "and my crew" in one fail swoop to keep from paying me over 18 months of built-up wages. (If you question the depravity of the situation as I paint it, consider that the owner of that company is now in jail for shooting his wife dead in the forehead at point-blank range.) It sucked, but Juddy Arnold and I then started our own company doing the same thing, Vision Producers, Inc. It went well, until the one-two punch of a failing economy and a man dying from a heart attack that owed us seven figures. That lasted from 2005-2007, and that company did over $200M in that short timeframe. Erin and I took 2008 "off" and went into the mission field in Switzerland and Thailand, then came home to have a baby (and for me to have a few reconstructive shoulder surgeries). From 2009-2011, I was a founder and partner in VPI Business Advisors, a consultant company that offers so many services and professions that it's a mouthful to try to explain. Be sure to check out the VPI Business Advisors page if you're interested, as that's where I give the explanation my best shot.

On January 1, 2012, I left VPI and started my own company, Jared Cullop, Inc.. This is what I'm doing now. It's going really well, and I only have "me and mine" to deal with, which is very freeing compared to having 120 employees. My focus has tightened too. No longer do I take on huge mammoth "make a dream become a reality" deals. Now, I focus on the basic foundation that America's Small Businesses, specifically Medical and Dental Practices, need to succeed: Truly functional websites and great first impressions via logos and such. I then train my clients how to use the tools themselves instead of having to come to me. I empower them to control their destiny. I like it.

My specialty is the ability to see a company as its client base sees it, and then help them craft a message to that public, whether with words or images, shapes or colors, web or print. I'm proud of the long line of companies that have been bettered by my efforts. My one core requisite is that I trust that my clients are good people, with dreams, and with a good product or service. If this foundation is present, I can passionately relate them to their target audience.

Previous clients include NFL pro athletes, attorneys, physicians, the US Department of Energy, countless inventors, and small businesses trying to make these hard times into a season of prosperity. But as I said, I now more focus on helping doctors and dentists make it in this economy that seems to want to either enslave them or make them extinct. I do hope you'll check out my site. The work is good and effective, and truly, my clients love me. It's because I care, and I've "been there". How many "web guys" can you find that can build a $200M company? Not many, I assume.

I also have become a perpetual contributor to Excellence Magazine, America's largest Porsche magazine. Pete Stout (the editor) and his  team are simply some of the best automotive journalists using the English language as a way to spread auto wisdom. My 2006 Porsche was in a shootout with other incredible P-cars and actually won. I got to participate in that 3-day test and even write a page on my thoughts, which was included in the 11 page article. Since then, they've hired me to fly to the very first Panamera press conference at the Porsche Factory in Zuffenhausen, outside Stuttgart, Germany, as well as many other destinations. I got to write that article and quite a few more since. They've hired me to put words to the experiences of driving some of the most amazing Porsches on the road, including the 2011 GT3-RS, 2011 GT3, 2012 Cayman R, 2012 Carrera GTS, 2013 911 Carrera S, 2013 Boxster S, and 2011 Boxster Spyder to name a few. I've also had some incredible company on those tests, including Patrick Long, Hurley Haywood, and Lehman Keen, some of the quickest and most successful American drivers alive at the moment, and guys that I now consider friends.

In the end, I come from a wonderful family and was raised outside of the little town of Bluff City, TN near Bristol. I'm so proud of my brother Micah and sister Britni. My parents loved us completely, and really taught us so many lessons. They still are. I hope that I will be as good of a father as mine was to me.
