Big Leap, Lehi

AGE: 32
BORN: Provo

Including Bryan Phelps on our list was no big leap. The website wonderkid-turned-SEO-entrepreneur has an optimal reputation and clients the likes of Domo, Workfront and BambooHR.

The WHITE Talking “I’m probably not your traditional, motivational speaker-type of CEO. I like to work side-by-side with our teams and get things done. I like working with people who are almost opposite of me — more outgoing, more spontaneous, and force me outside of my comfort zone.”

Favorite Accomplishment “The websites I built back in the early 2000s that helped me learn the ins and outs of SEO. They provided serious real-life experience — something I always look for in others as we hire.”

First Jobs “When I was 12, my mom bought me paintballing gear in exchange for building her a website. My first job that paid with real money was a cold-calling phone surveying job in Orem when I was 16. The website job was way better.”

What A Cliche “Young professionals are too often discounted because of a lack of experience. But the cliche of young people being overly addicted to screens is unfortunately pretty accurate. We once had someone answer their cell phone in the middle of a job interview.”
