The Founders.

A Passion to Connect Others

Jason and Brad come together over a common cause – Strengthen the weave of relationships between human beings in an organization to drive value.

It is a concept they had discussed for years and Covid presented an ideal time to bring it to live.  They committed to having an organization they have been a part of, the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), to be more connected than ever even despite the pandemic.  And how could it be done without stressing the administrative support of the organization? 

Blending Jason’s knowledge in Technology and Brad’s Administrative horsepower with Virtual Assistants, 1-ON-1 Connections was born. The result was tremendous creating nearly 500 connections in just the first 90 days. The EO Organization took note and wrote a story about the impact.  It rippled globally and now they are making connections from Australia to Miami.
