I am Coach Jason Ballard, "Your Business Wingman" and expert in the "Business of Business." My purpose is to motivate others to be unstoppable, grow the next generation of leaders, and set people up for infinite success in making the world a better place.  I work directly with driven business owners, leaders, decision makers, entrepreneurs, teams, and career professionals just like YOU to achieve your personal and business goals faster than you could own their own.

Are you losing sleep due to stress and lack of clarity?

Life is hard and becoming more complicated. More than ever, leaders are feeling tired, overwhelmed, and uncertain about the future. They find themselves without a plan or goals, in reactive mode, struggling to keep up, not confident, and hoping for a better way.

Do you feel alone and need someone that “gets you”?

It is lonely at the top as a leader. In the fast-paced digital world, leaders are under pressure to make faster decisions. They often feel alone “on an island,” second guess themselves, and wish they had a confidential business partner to offer an outside perspective, challenge and motivate them, and help them be more successful.

Are you frustrated with no business growth or scaling too fast and can't keep up?

The problems that surround stagnation are also the same for organizations that are exploding in growth: inexperienced leaders, talent gaps, not enough cash flow & capital, poor plan/goal execution, communication breakdowns, low team productivity, and not meeting customer expectations.

Do you wish you had more time and money?

Time is money and your most important asset. Most don’t know the value of their time and are not disciplined. They are “busy being busy,” not productive, which results in decreased profitability, working longer hours, seldom taking vacations, and not enjoying a balanced life with the people they care about.

Have you settled and are not operating at optimal levels?

Tired of the daily grind, feeling average, not growing, missing out on opportunities, and not doing the things you know you can do? Most get in a comfort zone and are afraid of change. They want to realize their potential, make an impact, and be a part of something bigger, but just don’t know how.

Are your fears controlling your potential in life?

At the heart of every person are fears of success, failure, rejection, unknowns, change, and losing control.  Fear causes self-limiting thoughts in people, which leads to doubting themselves, second guessing decisions, procrastination, and ultimately not trusting themselves enough to believe they can achieve BIGGER things. Change your mindset - change your future ... TODAY!

Turning Dreams Into Reality

Client’s complex problems solved with life-changing results

COVID-19 Pandemic
THE CHALLENGE
  • COVID-19 had a significant impact on every business (small, medium, and large) in every industry
  • Companies were caught off guard, were unprepared, and most didn’t have a contingency plan
  • Fear of the unknown set in and many business leaders had lost confidence in decision making. Some did nothing, some blindly tried a few things that did not work, and others decided to “wait it out”
THE SOLUTION
  • Met with all my clients, as well as other friends, colleagues, and business leaders in my network
  • Kept leaders calm, focused on can-do attitude, problem solving, opportunistic mindset, and reassured employees by being open, honest, transparent, and including them in a new action plan
  • Analyzed every area of the companies (budget, sales, marketing, performance, plans, etc), reviewed strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, and led leaders and staff through the change process
  • Developed an agile business strategy centered around being nimble in how products and services could be delivered, targeting new markets, better adapting to existing client’s needs, and providing new/personalized consumer experiences
THE RESULT
  • Gave business leaders hope and confidence by creating a new “art of the possible,” overcoming adversity, and winning
  • Organizations were “leaned” out by cutting non-critical expenses, reducing inventories, streamlining processes, becoming more efficient, and are now able to quickly and proactively respond to any type of market disruption  
  • Every company stayed in business and on average increased revenues by 16%
