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.

Hear It From Them

Jake is a very inspiring motivational speaker who took the time to visit with my students and share his story of hard work to start his own company. He offered advice and tips to students to help them achieve their future dreams by encouraging and reminding them to compete for what they want in life!

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!

Until You Can Do What You Want

“For a long time, I convinced myself that I could will my way to a dream. As long as I wanted it bad enough, I could make it happen. But if there is one great truth I learned from this great game, it’s that no great accomplishment is ever achieved by yourself. Being successful is contingent on others, and it…
