#406: Guest Interview: Jake Thompson

Season #21

Today I am so grateful to be joined by the one and only Jake Thompson!

Jake’s resume is impressive, to say the least. He is an author, keynote speaker, coach, business man, and (best of all) an example of everything he teaches. In his trainings, team building workshops, and one on one coaching, he inspires everyone he works with to build grit, accountability, and compete every day for success.

In this episode, we talk about what’s good, what’s hard, and what has worked for him. We get into the problem with trying to be “fearless”, the magnetic influence of the 5 people you spend the most time with, and how to break down your big goals into bite-sized pieces. One of my favorite teachable moments in this episode is when Jake talks about “can’t-see choices that turn into can’t-miss results.”

Coming off of this interview, I feel like I just got a personal coaching session!

Whether you’re an athlete, coach, parent, or a mindset nerd, this interview with Jake Thompson is sure to get you fired up for your goals. Better still, it will help you stay on track making small, meaningful choices every day to achieve those goals and become better athletes and humans.

Press play, enjoy, and share with anyone who comes to mind as you listen to this kickass episode!
