Mountains in Clouds

Making Dollars While Making Change journeys through the author’s formative personal and professional experiences, highlighting how they have shaped him as an entrepreneur. Both reflective and prescriptive in nature, the stories that lie within connect the dots on how Quarles has used entrepreneurship as a platform for social impact and are intended as a call to action for all those who have been too afraid to pull the trigger on their game-changing ideas.

“Companies and individuals alike have made terms like “impact” and “double bottom line” slogans too often void of transformative action. Making Dollars While Making Change is not a book it’s a blueprint to support making impact part of your DNA. ”

— Jeff Johnson, Award-Winning Journalist, CEO, Men Thrive

“Game recognizes game, so I would be lying if I said that any of Jonathan’s business success, from his holding company, The BTL Group, to Quartz Water Source, his latest venture, is a surprise. I didn’t just hope for it, I expected it.”

— Tavis Smiley, Author & Talk Show Host


“Coca-Cola Scholars are socially-conscious leaders who see a better future for their communities. We are so proud to count Jonathan as one of our own. We remain grateful that he uses his gifts to change the world.”

— Jane Hale Hopkins, President of Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation
