I’m Jared Kleinert, Founder/CEO of Offsite, the voice behind Meeting of the Minds, and a former 3-time author, TED speaker, and consultant.

I started my first business at 15 and later became one of the first 10 employees for an enterprise SaaS company called 15Five where I worked under “The Most Connected Man You Don’t Know In Silicon Valley” according to Forbes.

At 18, I became one of the youngest signed authors of a business book in MacMillan’s 175+ year history as one of the elite publishing houses, and soon published two award-winning books profiling hundreds of the world’s smartest and most talented Millennials. I also gave a TED talk at 19 (and have done two other TEDx talks).

For 5 years, I ran my own marketing consulting firm after landing #1 NYT bestselling author Keith Ferrazzi (former CMO of Deloitte and author of Never Eat Alone) as my first-ever client. Other clients included Fortune 1000 companies, Rhodes Scholars, Emmy award-winning journalists, keynote speakers earning $20K+ per speech, etc.

And today, I run a venture-backed startup called Offsite, where we help remote and hybrid teams reconnect through in-person team retreats. We’ve helped hundreds of the world’s top companies like Buffer, Webflow, Linear, Metabase, and more bring together their own “Meeting of the Minds” on a regular basis for increased employee engagement, retention, and alignment.

You can expect that this newsletter will cover practical advice and insights from my own experiences starting successful small businesses, working with hundreds of top thought leaders and innovative companies, as well as interviews with my clients, friends, and other experts we invite to provide you with massive value.

So, I’ll leave you to your day, but be sure to subscribe if you want us to send you future emails as they go live. If you want to learn more and support this work:

  • Head to offsite.com if you’re planning a team retreat…

  • Buy my last book NETWORKING to learn how to build meaningful connections, leverage your pre-existing network better, and become a super-connector…

  • Reply and ask about hourly/daily coaching rates (I rarely work with clients 1-on-1 these days because I’m running a startup, but I *can* be free on weekends and happy to support the right clients at the right price).

And don’t forget to subscribe!

Thanks again. 🤓
