“One year ago I was working for "the man" doing the 9-5 thing. When I met Joon, that all changed. His methods gave me the confidence to go out in the field and make my hobby grow into a business. He has clear ideas of how business works and has been able to get it down to a science and an art. Within months of working with Joon, he has helped me grow my business to bring in over twice the amount I was getting paid at my regular job. Thanks to Joon I can take on bigger, more ambitious challenges.”
-- Timothy Barnes, Founder and Specialist. San Diego Digital Consulting Services

“Sometimes you have to pay thousands on your way to find the right person that will help you pin point what has to be done for your individual business, someone who could filter through oceans of knowledge and just get to the point. I made more progress in one month working with Joon than I have in an entire year with other experts. He is one of a kind.”
-- Reut Schwartz-Hebron, Founder, Management Trainer, Author, International Speaker but first and foremost a Human Being. The KindExcellence Institute"

“Joon has been an EXCELLENT resource for providing a deep insight into my business strategies and planning. His methods, tools and dedicated service has provided tremendous benefits to the growth of my organization. A great resource for business strategy, personal growth and overall success planning and motivation! I strongly recommend Joon for any business related consulting.”
-- Sanjiv Prabhakaran, President and CEO. Bytes Solutions Inc

“It was extremely helpful. Joon is a no-nonsense person that values your time. He wants you to achieve results quickly and that's why people like his business workshops. He has the guts to tell people which ideas will work and which will not. I like that.”
-- Marta Lomeli, Customer Service Representative. San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce

“His easy-going style made it fun, but his knowledge made it a great, in depth learning experience.”
-- Brian Ferguson, Owner. Ferguson, McClure & Associates

“The result was a comprehensive binder, detailing our company’s entire business processes, broken down by each department. This will save us a tremendous amount of time training new employees and tracking their progress. Joon provided real-word examples that made the material easy to digest and even simpler to apply to our business. I would recommend this course to anyone that is starting out or has hit a wall in growing their business.”
-- Juliana Gulitz, Chief Operating Officer. Marketing Pro Consulting

Joon S. Han is a global Give-Getter and the author of "Get Ahead by Giving Back" which unveils the hidden secret of the most successful business people in history. Joon speaks nationally on this and other topics including strategic thinking, process innovation and millennial leadership development while always tying proceeds to various deserving non-profits.

Joon is also the founder of Better San Diego, a strategic alignment company committed to forging a better San Diego one organization at a time.1
He did this to make a difference for his beloved city and when in his own words “I realized that I don’t make a very good employee.” Through Better San Diego, Joon serves smart business leaders in his role as strategy specialist. It’s his passion to work with leaders to develop and understand solutions so that they “learn how to fish” instead of “just getting a fish for today.” With that, Better San Diego has quickly become the consulting organization that other consultants turn to when they want to improve their own companies. In the end, what gives Joon an absolute rush is helping business leaders grow from being busy to very effective.
Joon has been developing leaders for over 17 years and implementing strategic systems thinking in organizations since 1996. His unique cross-section of industry experience serving Fortune 20, non-profit and faith-based sectors allows him to bring an innovative and time-tested perspective to every results-driven client solution and he’s a sought after speaker that has been challenging and inspiring groups starting back in 1990. Joon writes the Small Business Tip of the Week for the SD Regional Chamber of Commerce as well as pertinent business articles for various publications and radio. In addition to facilitating various workshops, seminars and courses throughout the region, he leads the People's MBA™ Small Business Booster Course2 in a joint partnership with the State of California’s Employment Training Panel and the SD Regional Chamber of Commerce.

>
Mike and Jenny Start a Business;

In addition to speaking nationally and his specialist duties with Better San Diego, Joon serves as president for Hope in the City, a non-profit focused on leadership development and systemic solutions for City Heights; although participation in the education of his children at their musical conservatory usually trumps both obligations. He resides in beautiful San Diego where he graduated from UCSD with a BS in Molecular Biology and met his wife. They both just recently noticed that their family produces almost three times as much recyclable waste than normal trash.
Joon enjoys the magicianship of Penn & Teller ® and the beauty of the game of basketball. His two biggest pet peeves are when folks say “I could care less” instead of “I couldn’t care less” and when someone speaks on leadership when they haven’t really led anything in their life.
Right now, Joon is fulfilling his childhood dream of being a featured presenter on Business Expert Webinars!
