Gain the Competitive Edge to Win in Sales.

Perfect for sales teams in real estate, franchisees, staffing, and network marketing.

It takes a lot to stand out in today’s ultra-competitive landscape. Fancy business cards and flashy accessories don’t make you stand out and won’t give you the edge to close the deal.

Jake teaches teams how to make the sale with The Competitor Mindset. Learn how to harness your own competitive fire to help you exceed your goals, grow your sales, and create a daily process that yields results. Your team will leave this talk driven to excel and continually moving forward with enthusiasm, even after hearing the word “no.”

Sales isn’t a line of work for just anyone – and it’s why Competitors find a way to thrive.

Key Lessons:
  • Mindset is Everything. Learn how to think and act like a Competitor by building your grit with a focus on two key areas.
  • There’s Magic in the Process. Discover the secret power of the Competitor Scorecard and how it transforms your team into using a daily process that creates the scoreboard results your company needs.
  • Quit Looking In the Mirror. It doesn’t matter if your website is pretty or your product is shiny and new – no one cares about us. They care about themselves. Learn how to follow the blueprint the best in sales built because the sale isn’t about us – it’s about the customer.
  • Remove Motivation From the Equation. Instead of being stuck in neutral waiting for motivation like your competitors, discover how you take action without it. You’ll create a winning mindset and lap your industry rivals by training yourself to make moves and not excuses.

What Made You Successful on the Field Will Make You a Winner Off Of It

Perfect for High School, College, & Professional Sports Teams.

The transition from playing sports to life after is not an easy one for most athletes. Many struggle with an identity crisis and loss of routine, structure, and teammates that it can take many years for them to rebound.

In this talk, Jake shares his own struggles with alcohol, depression, and internalized pain after his sports career ended – and how he was eventually able to pull himself out by applying the skills he learned in sports to life outside of it.

Your team will be fired up to keep competing every day in their life off of the field and equipped with the mindset to win it.

Key Lessons:
  • You Are More than Your Position. It’s easy to get wrapped up in our identity as an athlete. But then we quickly become lost when our playing career ends. Learn how a Competitor is bigger than what they played and how discovering your true self is the first step to pursuing greatness in life beyond the field.
  • Embrace Your Off-Season. Off-season training is all about focusing on the glory of gameday long before it ever arrives. This same mindset is required to endure internships and bad first-jobs while investing the time into our skill-development.
  • Competition Doesn’t End with Your Playing Days. Every day is a competition – but instead of finding your opponent on the court, you’ll see him/her in the mirror. Learn how you can beat yesterday and win today, every day.
  • Choose Your Teammates Wisely. We don’t get to choose our teammates on the field, but it’s important we learn to in life. We are the average of the five closest teammates we keep in life – discover what you need to know to build a lineup that helps you win life.
