If you listen to Net Income then you know who Kris Jones is. Last week Kris invited my developer Dillsmack, and myself to thier headquarters in Wilkes-Barre PA.
Kris is the CEO of Pepperjamsearch and they were having a press conference on Thursday. Then on Friday we were going to head to Philly until Saturday night then head back to Wilkes-Barre to fly out.
I got in really late on Weds night and this gorgeous blonde with a Shoemoney shirt ran up to me and hugged me I was like â€śHEY WAZZZZZUPâ€? then I saw Kris who introduced me to his girlfriend Robyn. They took me back to the hotel where I was staying (The Woodlands) and we hit the bar there and had a few cocktails until we heard the â€ślast callâ€?â€¦ I was feeling pretty bad for Kris and Robin because they were doing this press conference the next day.
So Thursday morning Mike Jones (General Legal Council and COO of Pepperjam) picked me up and we headed to the Pepperplex. I was really impressed with the place. You would think they were running a modeling agency with all the attractive young ladies around the office.
The press conference was so cool. Pepperjam was named the 293rd fastest growing company in the country by Inc Magazine. Kris talked about how he was not only proud of his company but also the people and the town that helped him build his empire. Kris was followed by the mayor and congressman who had extremely nice things to say about Kris and Pepperjam.
After the Press Conf we talked business and then the office went out to celebrate! I got to say I like working for myself but I really really miss the camaraderie and like being a part of a teamâ€¦ It was so much fun.
On Friday morning we hung out at Pepperjam then Kris, Mike, Dillsmack, and I headed to Philadelphia. We went to a nice dinner and I got to see what a 500$ steak looks like.
On Saturday morning we did the whirlwind tour of Philly hitting Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, I ran the rocky steps (click here to see the video) and finally had a cheese steak at Pat’s (across from Gino’s). They were awesome.
I had a great couple days and thanks to Mike and Kris for hosting me and Dave (Dillsmack).
