“Our city manager and economic development director both commented that this was one of the best uses of economic development funds in a long time. Thank you for taking a group of people who have been beaten down by the economy and giving them back the belief that it is possible to be prosperous again by empowering them to take charge of their own business in ways they never thought of before.”
Barbara Frederick, Executive Director, Port Angeles Downtown Assn, Port Angeles, WA

Sue & Dan Horwath, Owners, Up The Creek Antiques, Centralia, WA

“We were quite skeptical when we enrolled in the BootCamp. We are delighted we did: In 9 months we attained a 64% increase in sales. Jon presented literally hundreds of thought-provoking idea-generating concepts. We started putting them into action the very day we returned from the BootCamp. Contact me personally if you have any doubts about this class at”
John Kramb, Owner, Adams County Winery, Orrtanna, PA

“Thank You to you all for our AWESOME Destination Business seminar. I wasn’t sure there’d be anything else for me to learn, but I DID!!! I did, I did, I did!! This was SUCH a fantastically positive experience that gave all of us a new kick in the pants to be motivated to be a Destination Business.”
Stacey Blacker, Owner, Red, White & Brew, Mount Holly, NJ

“As an organization that supports small business, we looked for someone who would truly impact area businesses by sharing information that owners could implement immediately. Jon gave us exactly that…Many of the attendees have already asked to have Jon come back—with a promise that they will bring more business owners with them. If that isn’t a testimony to the effectiveness of Jon’s workshop, I can’t imagine what would be!”
Janet Fye, Regional Director, Northern Indiana Small Business, North Central Small Business Development Center

“Schallert delivered his three-hour talk with a speed and enthusiasm that belied the fact that it was 7:30 in the morning and that he gives similar talks once or twice a week… At one point…he climbed atop a chair and shouted, ‘Let’s go! For goodness sake, it’s your business at stake.’”
Michael Driscoll, reporting on Jon’s “Destination Business” seminar, Martinsburg Journal Staff Writer

“Initially my attendance at Jon Schallert’s seminar was to show support as a Boonton Main Street Trustee. Within one hour of the presentation I called our office and told our project manager Sarah that she needs to come over ASAP and listen to this presentation. The information gained from this particular seminar is invaluable! Our next stop will be the BootCamp in Colorado!”
Marta Pascarella, Nicholas Pascarella & Co., Denville, NJ

BJ Korros, Buyer, Resort to Retail

What you taught us gave us the tools to get on The Food Network! I know business owners think they can’t afford to be away from their business, but you can’t afford to miss the Destination BootCamp experience.”
Carrie Ehresman, Owner, Diner 66 & Triple XXX Family Restaurant
