We had the good fortune of connecting with John Jaxheimer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi John, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I was born and raised in NYC and was living in BK until two years ago. I now live in a small coastal town on Long Island called Sea Cliff so in light of the fact that our main street here is all of three blocks long and has only two bars and three restaurants, I’ll share a few favorites from NYC.

Typically, this would be my agency partners and the incredibly talented teams we collaborate with on a regular basis but the pandemic has changed so much about how we all work and in my case much of the work happens from home where I live with my wife and young daughter. While getting so much time with them is a silver lining, the day-to-day juggle(and struggle) of trying to balance work and life has only been made possible by my amazing wife, Aimee.
