Prior to starting his internet marketing career, CJ proudly served for the U.S. Navy with travels to Africa, Germany, Croatia, Greece and many other locations. While on shore duty in Norfolk, VA CJ met Miguel Curl, who introduced him to the “Personal Development” and “Self-Help” mindset which changed his life forever.
In June of 2009 CJ partnered with Gary Anderson and created a blog dedicated to personal development to help people look at the positive things in life and “Stay Boosted”. The blog grew to, at one point, being ranked in the top 100,000 websites online. (via Alexa.com) It later developed into his first published book, now available on Amazon.
Fast forward to 2011, CJ met KC Bartley at a local networking event. KC hired CJ for many different services from website design, graphic design, website page speed optimization, search engine optimization and more. But, over the years, the “client relationship” grew into a friendship.
After working together for years, in the midst of the madness that was 2020, KC and CJ had multiple conversations discussing the needs of home inspectors. They discussed everything from marketing to the average day-to-day operations. After a few months of phone calls, video chats, and in-person sit downs, Inspector Playbook was born.
