Who is Jon Reed?

Jon Reed has had an up and down (and up again) entrepreneurial career since the early ’90s. He currently runs his own publishing and consulting company. Jon is sick enough to consider writing books a “hobby” – Free from Corporate America. now available on Amazon, is Jon’s third book. (Also check out the full color caricature bio¬† Jon uses in the book.)

His second book, Resumes from Hell, has its own web site which includes sample chapters. Jon’s first book, The SAP Consultant Handbook, is a career manual for SAP software professionals. Jon is currently the President of JonERP.com, a web site dedicated to helping SAP professionals and project teams make sense of SAP’s technical evolution.

Jon is also a founding member of the Board of Directors of Hidden-Tech, a non-profit organization based in Western Massachusetts that serves as an advocacy and networking group for the growing base of “virtual companies” that use technology to work virtually with clients and colleagues.

Jon has a passion for helping people to develop a more entrepreneurial approach to their careers. He believes that the “corporate contract” has been broken, and that it’s time for people to regain economic control of their lives. Free from Corporate America shares some of Jon’s favorite tactics and business philosophies. Those who want to delve even deeper into Jon’s obsessions (and read a bit of no-b.s. music journalism) are invited to check out jonreed.net, Jon Reed’s “essays, rants, and more” web site.

Jon used to have very short hair, then he had long hair. Now it’s kind of short again (new pic on the way). This is very important to some people and not very important to others. Jon believes that what matters in business (and in life) is not how you look but whether you are truly committed to excellence. Jon continues to prosper, though sometimes it feels more like perseverance than prosperity.
