Hello! My name is Jacob M. Harmon, and I’m the founder/owner of JMH Media. I’m incredibly proud of the business and brand that I’ve built and I can’t wait to share it with you. This is my journey, and it still continues today.
I grew up in a large family. My Dad, who was an entrepreneur, taught me to work hard and dream big. I remember some of my favorite moments with him were talking about business or coming up with new business ideas.
When I was 16, I started a business selling and installing wind turbines and solar panels. I contacted a manufacturer, and even became an official reseller. The business failed. I didn’t sell one wind turbine or solar panel. That said, I learned valuable skills. I built a website for my little business. Admittedly, it wasn't a great website, but I'd learned an important skill that would serve me many times in the years to come.
Fast forward a few years, and I found myself married, in college, and literally without any money. Now, I know that college is difficult for many people and that it’s incredibly common to be a poor college student, but I wanted more. You see, that’s one of the things about me… I have a hard time settling.
Even though I was already working a part time job, I decided to start designing websites on the side. I created an LLC, and built myself a simple marketing website and started reaching out to family and friends. I even built some free websites to get exposure, practice, and experience.
Thanks to a lot of hard work and the grace of God, HarmonDesign slowly grew and clients referred new clients. Because of my simple web design business, I was able to graduate college debt-free.
I’ve seen first-hand the excitement and empowerment that comes from building a business from the ground up. My brand has been developed over the course of years, and has undergone many changes and pivots. JMH Media is the next stage of my business.
It’s time for a change! HarmonDesign has been great to me, but it’s time that it evolves into something even better. I’ve built an amazing web design business, but now I’m ready to take it to the next level and offer a full-scale branding and design agency. JMH Media is more than me. It’s more than a freelancer working on websites in the middle of the night. We’re a full digital agency, and we’re here to help you be successful online.
