About me – TLDR

I’m a 15+ year veteran entrepreneur and have worked in small businesses for most of my career. I go to work every day to help entrepreneurs like us prevent burnout and achieve success.

More about Julie Bee

My Why

I help business owners prevent burnout and achieve their definition of success so that they can have a positive impact on their local communities.

I believe anyone who has the determination and resilience to start a business and stick with it deserves a chance at success. By 2032, I will help one million business owners achieve that success.

Core Values

TJB Media’s core values are clarity, confidence, growth, being an ally, and resilience.

These values guide everything Julie and the TJB Media team do when helping business owners. We not only practice these internally in our own decision-making and actions, but we aim to work with clients who are aligned with these values.
