Jake Van Ness
Jake Van Ness is a creative entrepreneur, who has run a graphic design and marketing business for over 10 years. As a huge fan of online learning and participating in webinars, Jake recognized the growth occurring in the space. Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and the space exploded.
With so many people and businesses having to move to an virtual work environment, many struggled with the new technology and how to run meetings and trainings well. Jake learned about the Virtual Producer role and recognized it as a vital part of any successful virtual experience. Providing the support so that those who are presenting and facilitating can concentrate on their important role.
Elevated Virtual was created to help individuals and businesses work with the technologies available for virtual meetings and trainings, as well as provide the support they need so their meetings and trainings go smoothly and their participants get the most they can out of the sessions.

As a Business Coach, Advisor, and Consultant, I help CEOs and Leaders overcome the challenges of business and create profitable growth.
My work to support leaders began nearly 20 years ago. In running both of my IT consulting businesses, I realized early on that my clients needed help with more than their IT strategy. I often consulted in the areas of company culture, employee engagement and leadership development in order to best support their needs as they grew.
My book, “How Entrepreneurs Thrive, Your RoadMAPP to Success: Mentor Assisted Power Planning – 7 Tools for Growth” was written as a result of those years of truly bringing into focus the essential elements that lead to a successful business.
The Mentor Assisted Power Planning program (MAPP) is something I developed for entrepreneurs, and it has helped dozens of business owners build million-dollar businesses. It also helped small businesses, who have reached a plateau, break through to a new level of growth and profitability.
It is my greatest desire to be a strong voice of and for business leaders. Based on what I have learned from my own failures, successes, and work, I am most fulfilled when I share my insight with others who are facing the challenge of making new and growing businesses work.
If you are a leader, seeking unbiased, independent support and thinking, let’s connect to discuss working together. We provide a space with no judgment, where you can experiment and expand. Together, we will build an environment where business owners and leaders can thrive.
