Hi! I'm Jake Thompson.
I believe that every day is a competition.
Are you ready to WIN yours?
Build Your Winning Mindset
My first book "Compete Every Day" explores the 7 key choices that Winners make every day to build an unbeatable mindset - and how you can too.
Listen to My Weekly Podcast
Every Wednesday, I release a new conversation with leaders, psychologists, coaches, & more about how we can become better leaders & influencers in our work & life.
START YOUR DAY STRONGER
I write a brief morning email for leaders that will equip them with a focus to compete to win their day called "The Daily Competitor."
WHAT DRIVES ME
My mission is to help create Competitors who are driven to show up stronger & lead more effectively. I believe that better Competitors make better people – and better people make bigger impacts.
I’m so excited that you’re here and interested in working together. The best business relationships require a personal touch that goes beyond spreadsheets & business cards, so to help us get off on a great start, I wanted to share more about who I am and what drives me every day to invest in my clients.
My first “sales job” was at 7-years-old selling Christmas cookies door-to-door in my neighborhood. In April. (My mom made me return everyone’s money!).
I started Compete Every Day in 2011 by selling branded t-shirts & tanktops from the trunk of my car. I never thought we’d have grown to what we are now, sold all over the world & continuing to grow year over year.
Competition is in my blood. I lived for it and the beauty of sports growing up – I either won, or I learned what it would take to win. I believe that competition (with ourselves) brings out the best within each of us.
I host multiple podcast shows about competition, mindset, & leadership because I believe the better we can fill our own cup & grow, the bigger impacts we can make on our coworkers, families, & communities.
I live in the Dallas (TX) metroplex with my wife Elena and our two dogs, Sugar & Biscuit.
