People often ask “Is this business in Clearwater is owned by a scientologist? I don’t want to give them my money.”
Google is everyone’s friend and there is a lot of information available with a simple search. But it’s not always clear.
So, to help make the information known, I am publishing this WISE “Job Openings” list. These will now show up on a Google search as being scientologist owned businesses. Perhaps there are others who live in this area that could add to this list, as certainly not all scientologist owned businesses are hiring…
The listings are sometimes amusing. Even in the business world, the scientology jargon is rampant.
These are the companies and names on this list (put into alphabetical order, I also added what are probably the largest scientology owned businesses in the area — KnowB4, NTC, Consumer Sales Solutions and Energy Professionals:
- Bahia Property Management (Raul Aleman)
- Blue Streak Docs (Sam Gendusa)
- Buzzazz Business Solutions (Keanan Kintzel)
- CLC Academy
- Consumer Sales Solutions (Tom Cummins and Jim Bridgeforth)
- Cooper Chiropractic Center (Dale Cooper)
- David Tapia Allstate Insurance Agency
- Energy Professionals (Jim Mathers)
- In Your Face Skincare (Denice Duff)
- KnowBe4 (Stu Sjouwerman)
- Lightning Pool and Pavers (Chip Payson)
- MGE Management Experts (Luis Colon, Greg Winteregg)
- Nelson Construction and Renovations (Gregory Nelson)
- NTC — Nationwide Title Clearing (John Hillman, Todd Kugler, Norm Novitsky)
- One Stoppe Shoppe (Paris Morfopolous)
- PostCardMania (Joy Gendusa)
- Prospect Providers LLC (Annie Hulse)
- Root Cause Medical Clinic (Rick and Vikki Petersen)
- Ted McGrath Brands (Jasmin Napier — daughter-in-law of Mike Napier)
- The Tub Guy (Randy and Molly Baxter, she is the former CO FOLO EUS)
- Silber Consulting Group (Marc Silber)
- Silkin Management Group (located in Portland OR)
- USA Tree Service LLC (Jim and Karen Kettner)
- Worry Free Bookkeeping (Virginia Rizzo)
I did some googling because my organization uses the service KnowBe4. It appears Stu sold KnowBe4 last year which makes me feel a bit better about our doing business with them.
Amusing that, prior to the sale, he was in business with Kevin Mitnick.
Can you make this list printable?
Not Really my name says
Intuition Salon and Spa 16 N Fort Harrison …. Maybe not a WISE member, but the owner is a Scientologist too.
Worry Free Bookkeeping Ad
“…unlimited unpaid time off…”
Wtf? That’s actually IN the job description.
Never Take It Off which scams young fans in the rock industry and expects a part time employee to do literally everything.
Owned by the Simms family. ISA/ Wise connections via Jeffrey and Natalie Simms of Clearwater. Their job listing just nine months ago.
Their daughter is Juliet Simms former The Voice contestant and now known as Lilith Czar , a major rebranding to hide the truth.
Very interesting! I didn’t see any requirement for educational or any College Degree posted. I guess, it might, (who knows) Stan Dubin (Flag Scientologist member) and his team will do the interviews with their Employment Testing Center by using Scientology OCA testing graph. https://employeetestingcenter.com/
They might be part of WISE too. Please watch the their video.

Err…..Yeah, these are not likely going to be good jobs, working for a Scientologist and at a WISE member company. As others are pointing out, the game is rigged. Similar to an org, “the house always wins.” If there is any money to be pocketed, it will be by the owner-founders exclusively, with workers operating as “commission only” or for a tiny hourly pay of $8 or $12 per hour.
Has anyone else ever had the experience of a boss physically smacking you? I have, working for a Scientologist. Has anyone had the experience of a boss screaming, “F… You!” repeatedly and dismissing you on the spot? I have, working for a Scientologist. Has anyone had the experience of, after a year of working 50 to 60 hours per week for less than $400/week on a 1099*, going to remind the boss, “The commission opportunity you laid out when I came on-board was around $145,000 per year,” only to have the boss say, “I said that? Gosh, I don’t remember”? I have, working for a Scientologist. The first two were Clears, and the last an OT 3.
[*so you are paying all your own taxes, have no benefits – you are “self-employed”]
If you consider any of the above starkly negative experiences (so financially and career derailing) an injustice, such will be largely in-actionable. Your recourse is a WISE charter committee, if one exists in your city. These are operated by over-wrought, over-tired volunteers. Mainly, as many of in this blog community know, their task is to keep Scientologists’ business disputes away from the orgs.
Like being in an org, you have to write Knowledge Reports, and you may think you are aiming for truth and justice, but beware if your Scientologist boss is a big contributor to Scientology. In that case, you are sunk. Such an individual, in Scientology, can get away with murder and no one will want to do anything. That boss has crafted his or her image to be “upstat” and… (you know what’s coming) they have “Ethics Protection.” The result will only be that you have discredited YOUR image in the group for ludicrously causing dev-t by going after an “upstat” who, like LRH, should not be shot at.
I mean, seriously — I have seen this, as an auditor, written into docs in a person’s preclear folder, that they need to be repeatedly sec checked because their Scientologist boss is a big financial contributor to the IAS, yet this person has complained about the boss’s frequent 1.1 nullifying behavior and language in the workplace. The victim gets shot, in other words. Remarkable from “the most ethical group on the planet,” except for that labyrinth of loopholes known and used by a few.
It’s a hot plate of spaghetti mess in too many instances, working for a Scientologist. As others have discovered-—people that worked for Tom Cruise, for instance-—these experiences easily can ADD to the number of things you need to pay money to Scientology to take up in auditing sessions.
My experiences, salary and benefits, workplace protections, coaching and skills development, and overall treatment being employed by non-Scientologists have been INFINITELY better than any WISE company experience I ever had, I am sad to report.

Thanks for posting. Someone should print this list and discreetly get them out to the public so they can give their business elsewhere, because money given to these businesses will just wind up in the CoS’s coffers and consumers should choose whether to financially support a church or not .
My brother went to a new Chiropractic office that just opened up in Auburn, AL. He decided to try it out because of his shoulder pain. He told me that the whole experience was very weird. They gave him and 5 other people a tour of the doctors office and a PowerPoint t presentation of the “treatments” they use. They said in the presentation that they cured a ladies IBS and anxiety which is ridiculous. I went to their website and it all looks so fake. From what I saw and heard from his experience, makes me wonder if this place is somehow associated with Scientology.
Buzzazz Business Solutions is the dumbest business name I’ve ever heard.

Over the weekend we were at a mall outside of Nashville in Franklin and there was a rug tent in the parking lot. Rugs To Go. The guys that run the tent were super nice, no pressure, seemed alright. Then as my mother was having her rug ordered she pointed to a book that was on the table. LRH’s “Introduction to Scientology Ethics”. I snapped a picture. Also noticed a couple leaflets sitting on the table. The first was called The Way to Happiness I believe and the other was Youth Human Rights I think. I grabbed the leaflets when the employees were busy elsewhere. Looked at the back of the first one. Printed in Clearwater. The blurb at the bottom was talking about LRH. I really wanted to tell them that it’s not too late. My mother still ended up buying 3 rugs from them that day. Ugh

“In Your Face Skincare.” What every Squirrel Buster needs as they brave the elements terrorizing a neighborhood near you…
Forgot one I think. Richard Wallace, supposedly a MD owns a Urgent Care place in Clearwater.
You can tell they are Scientology owned businesses by their grammar usage, way they are written, lack of $$$ pay, absurd list of job duties for pennies, under minimum wage and the lists goes on.
1. I love how all these companies are rapidly growing, expanding and so busy yet can’t keep or find employees. Lies. Hmmmm sounds familiar.
2. Great places to work. Total Horseshit.
3. Extra duties that do not relate to your position. Hate that.
4. Love the one where no vaxx required. Surely a Superspreader Co.
5. No experience necessary. Will train you the LRH way.
6. Who owns all these buildings? Hmmmm. Either way your part of or paying the CULT. Think twice about taking any job.
7. Does any of your paycheck go to Scientology?
BOYCOTT any Scientology related or owned business.
Hope the tiny and short tyrant Capt. Dave invested in the little Tub Co. That’s probably the only thing he can keep from leaking besides his dinghy.
Maybe he can get a less than minimum wage job there when Scientology fails and loses its tax exempt status soon.
By the way, where is your wife Shelley? Why is she still being held prisoner at CST in your Twin Peaks, CA compound?
PS: Where in the world is Aaron Smith Levin?

Mick: Yes, it is a great article. I noticed on the list the name Jim Mathers. I know that name well. He is the owner of Consumer Energy Solutions. This is a telemarketing firm selling energy to residential and business customers. I worked for the verification company owned and operated by his wife FuMei. I worked in HR and payroll department. Very interesting job to say the least. At first, I was processing the HR applications and background checks and inputting the weekly payroll. After about 2 months, I was then tasked with doing research on the internet getting lists of names and numbers for her husband’s business, so that his people could contact people (which is what you list in number 3). I worked there for about 4 months. With regard to your question #7, I would say the answer is no, but I get the feeling if you are there any length of time, in order to keep your job, you are heavily recruited to join. I say this because, at the time I worked there, my husband was injured in an auto accident. I had to take a couple days off, but on the day I requested the time off, a personal assistant at FuMei’s urging came in to instruct me how to help my husband without the use of pain pills (which he absolutely needed because of the extent of his injuries). I am also inclined to believe that the sales people are overworked and under paid for their. I knew a few sales people who boasted about the big bonuses, but the sales quota they had to reach was near impossible to attain without them lying and pushing hard to obtain the sale. This is something that the Scientologists do to recruit their people. I am sure that there are a handful of sales people who pushed through to obtain the bonuses, but lost themselves in the process and are still there because they were indoctrinated and now can’t leave.

Shelly is still being kept in the compound she was banished to many years ago so that Miscavige & Cruise can continue their secret lover status. This is also why Tom can’t keep & doesn’t want any of the beautiful women he’s been involved with or married to. He’s commited to Miscavige. The episode of South Park wasn’t off base. Tom Cruise won’t come out of the closet & neither will Dave.

I suppose this is in case the 4th invader force or the Marcabs land on earth again.
They’re already here! Masters of disguise!
The Marcabs are detectable only by DNA analysis and many of them are politicians. The government is keeping their presence hidden.

Oh, I feel SO sorry for unsuspecting wogs who fall for these come-on ads claiming “up to” some incredible salary. Good luck fulfilling all of the fine print and unstated requirements, such as never, EVER having your stat drop or you can lose all privileges (Like sleeping?) and half or more of the pay they owe you. I noted that about half of them were lawsuits waiting to happen for forcing scientology “tech” on the unsuspecting employees.
I actually read through these postings and none of them would I send a resume to regardless of whether I knew they were connected to scientology or not. Read them carefully and you will see that they are packed with responsibilities and if you look at it there is no way one person can do a good job of doing that much at once. I had a time in my life where I was looking for a job because my past employer had a real problem with me telling the truth about what I was going on and read a whole bunch of job postings and these are some of the worse I have ever read.
Then there are the ones that are blatantly saying they are scientology based and well, no thanks. Even if I didn’t know what I have learned by reading and watching TV I wouldn’t take a job related to scientology either now or before.
I can only comment to Axiom.
When they state that a handyman job (sorry, “Estates Manager”) requires good grammar and punctuation, my experience is that this is the major part of the job. This isn’t a joke and will be MOST of what you are doing while at work.
The CEO is a stickler for purchase order requests per the Scn process, and will send anything he can question back to the proposer, fifty times if needed, to save $20 or make sure that there is no way it can be found for cheaper. Even if it means buying 10 replacements because he cheaped out.
He one time tied up six people (hourly average $25 an hour) for THREE WEEKS over nit-picking details (commas he felt were incorrectly included, mediocre but not terrible sentence structure) and ended up paying 3K more for the proposal because the window to purchase the thing at a reasonable price had passed.
Not only was he out 3K over the initial $300, but six people spent 180 hours on his dime just to get this thing HE REQUESTED THEY DO completed.
If you can’t tell, I REALLY hate CSWs.
