He states that he got interested in mobile phone related technology because it reaches a lot of the people. He knew from the get go that technologies connected to the hand held device would be the greatest catalyst of change. From this mindset, Jason Hope started selling premium message services.
Sources of money
He states that he gets all his money from his investments. The first thing that he did was create his first mobile telecommunications company known as Jawa. This is the parent company that has been the basis of all his investments which include digital services such as SEO provision, computer and business information systems and other interactive software.

Time it took to start making profit

How he handled self-doubt
It is common for investors to doubt that the ideas they are starting to work on will work. Jason states that he used the same doubt to fuel his need for success. Instead of letting the doubt cripple him, he used it to keep him on his toes and the results were wonderful.
