Compete Every Day

Life is Worth Competing For

Compete. Every. Day. That’s Jake Thompson’s guiding philosophy, the mantra he repeats to himself when he needs to keep going. It’s also the name of his global lifestyle brand, where he is founder and Chief Encouragement Officer. Pulling from his unique professional career, Jake tells enlivened stories through his podcast, “Better Than Yesterday,” and distills the art of competition into actionable tips people can use within their own lives: take control, don’t let fear guide you, be courageous, and press onward.

I have witnessed the magic that Jake Thompson brings as a guest speaker. He is a truly gifted speaker and is able to convey meaning and knowledge in an inspiring way. From a technical perspective, Jake is truly masterful. His presentations are logically structured and are interesting regardless whether you are an entry level team member or a CEO. He uses visual language, anecdotes, and powerful story telling to convey meaning. I recommend Jake for any inspirational speaking engagement!

Jake kicked off our conference by bringing our theme of storytelling to life. Not only did he give our members valuable takeaways for everyday tasks, he inspired us to look inward to identify the makings of our own great stories. Jake’s motivational messages aren’t exclusive to any one field and the passion he has for what he does is contagious! Don’t hesitate in booking him for your next event. I promise your audience will still be talking about it long after it’s over!

Six Years In
Six Years In

Six years ago this past Friday I sold my very first item online for Compete Every Day. What a ride.

I’d almost forgotten our anniversary until Friday night when a Facebook memory showed up in my feed, reminding me of the importance of May 26.

And I think entrepreneurship – just like life – all comes down to this. It comes down to:
