Pioneering bone health and saving lives with Jonathan Hafichuk
Show Notes

Jonathan Hafichuk’s first introduction to video was when a family friend gave him a camcorder. He started making videos with LEGO people while John Williams played in the background (anything is cinematic with John Williams).

Later, Jon dove into parkour and began making videos to get the notice of sponsors, which lead to traveling around North America for competitions. After graduating from post-secondary school in Lethbridge, he started online marketing for his parents’ store, where he realized the power of video production in the digital marketing space. When other local businesses saw Jon’s work, they hired him to do the same for them. This was the birth of Symbol Syndication.

In 2017, Jon expanded Symbol Syndication from Lethbridge to Calgary, serving some of the top companies in Canada and even several Global 500 companies.

In 2019, Jonathan was able to take a step back from Symbol Syndication and started running Flagship Business Brokers. With the guidance of a senior corporate lawyer, he helped entrepreneurs buy and sell businesses. 

In 2020, Jonathan partnered with two others to launch BioStrong, a unique solution to naturally improve bone density and reverse the effects of osteoporosis.
