But what happens when those leaders feel underdeveloped or overwhelmed by their roles? A recent study shared that 69% of millennials feel a lack of leadership development.

That is when Jake Thompson steps in.

Jake Thompson

When you think motivational speaker you might think of a speaker that simply helps people “feel good,” but I am here to flip that definition upside down and raise your bar. I might not be the motivational speaker you’re used to. 


My name is Jake A. Thompson, and my mission is to teach as many leaders as possible to Compete Every Day, achieve the professional and personal outcomes they want, and reach their full potential. 


I have experienced the soul-crushing weight of giving up on your dreams. I also know what it’s like to work hard, start with nothing, and build it into a successful organization and fired-up team. 


Integrity is important to me. I am happiest delivering tangible implementable improvements for my clients and audience and won’t rest until I do. I’ve been lucky to work with global brands like Titleist/FootJoy, National Breast Cancer Foundation, and Direct Diamonds, leveraging experience from building a 7-figure organization that I started by first selling t-shirts out of the trunk of my car. 


To date, I am grateful to have impacted over 75,000 people directly with my messages on competing every day, and host a podcast for leaders ranked in the top 1% globally.


Here is what I have learned; success isn’t a secret, a magic formula, a hack… but understanding how shifts in focus & daily actions build a champion’s mindset – it will transform our day-to-day into a winning life. I’m on a mission to show you how.

So glad we utilized Jake for our sales team.

Jake delivered the principles in a very relatable, upbeat and positive style and really helped the group to appreciate more how they are accountable for their own success and personal growth. The lessons acted not only great reminders but also highlighted new tactics on evaluating personal effectiveness and efficiency that will go right into action with our team. Enlightening, impactful and applicable. We definitely got better as individuals and sales professionals as a result.

Jake Thompson is a dynamic speaker with a charisma that you feel whether sitting in the same room or participating virtually. He is master at connecting and engaging the audience.  I was interested, entertained, and learned a new way to organize my daily to-do’s so I can feel successful at the end of the day and organized the following. From an event perspective, he is amazing to work with. He was always two steps ahead ready to offer help for marketing promos, video reels, connecting to customize the presentation for our group, etc. He is a true professional.
