About Jerel Benjamin
Jerel is currently the Founder and CEO of the Profit Gold consulting group, based in Austin, Texas. He was inspired to form this company after experiencing firsthand that not all business owners are skilled in all aspects of keeping their business healthy.

These are areas where Jerel Benjamin truly shines. His notable skills and strengths include empowering others through leadership training seminars, and business optimization through careful head-to-toe analysis, to name just a few.
