Answers Along the Way: Jeb Blount

In 2006, Jeb Blount (BBA ’92) made the risky decision to turn his back on corporate America and lunge headfirst toward the shimmering uncertainty of entrepreneurship in the most nerve-wracking way possible – by creating a jobs portal for salespeople in the midst of the Great Recession.
