Josh Meeder

Visionary, Entrepreneur, Adventurer, Traveler & Artist

Growing up as an Entrepreneur

For me, business has always been about something more. From an early age, I was surrounded by friends and family who were incredibly passionate about entrepreneurship and the impact it can have on the communities in which we live and work. Little did I know then, those experiences would have a profound impact on my career.

Growing up in my father’s insurance agency, I learned the values of leadership, community involvement, job creation and economic stewardship. My father, H Robert Meeder, passed away during my last semester. I split my time between school and running the insurance agency.

Insurance and Financial Services

During the first few years in business, I was consistently in the top 5% of sales in the nation. Three years later, he left that exclusive insurance agency and developed another very successful insurance operation. After raising $11 million, I built an insurance and financial services company from scratch to a $48 million enterprise in less than two years. That company had 150 employees with 23 offices spread over 3 states.

Enterprise Software Development in the “Windy City”

Next I moved to Chicago to lead large scale, custom software integrations. As Project Director of Custom Interfaces, I oversaw the integration of 8 custom and legacy interfaces for a $25 million enterprise application.

Back to PA and head first into Marketing

Due to personal reasons, I moved back to Pennsylvania and joined a merchandising/advertising firm. With the sales, technical and financial background,he was rapidly promoted to Director of Client Services. I managed several departments and approximately 70 people.  Additionally, I was actively involved in direct customer relations and both pre and post sales support.

And Now….. Great Things Happened!

I founded Great Things LLC in April of 2009 after being downsized from a good, executive position in the Marketing industry.  This diverse background, coupled with a keen entrepreneurial mind, enables me to rapidly classify problems, create sound improvement strategies and realistic implementation and training.

The Center of Harmony and Real Estate Projects

Real Estate investment had always captured my attention.   Growing up in my father’s insurance agency I saw firsthand how ordinary, hard working people amassed significant wealth and financial security with real estate.   The idea of passive income just made a lot of sense.   So, I found an amazing coach and had completed my first $14,000 deal within 3 months!  I flipped several more houses successfully but wanted to develop a consistent stream of revenue with rentals.   I had success with single family homes.  Then in September of 2011 I came across an old, historic building that had potential, but needed a lot of work.   This became “The Center of Harmony.

On a personal note

These days, I Am usually working around Harmony, working with The Center of Harmony. On his off time, I am outside enjoying nature, traveling or enjoying a college break visit from my son, Christian.  As an avid adventurer and traveler, I am on the go, exploring new places and learning sustainable practices around the hemisphere.

I am is a past member of the Venture Outdoors Board of Directors, Membership & PP Committee, Vice President of The Harmony Business Association, and Chamber of Commerce.
