On today’s podcast, Troy visits with Jay Jackson. Jay is an introvert, although you would never know it by looking at his Instagram. Many years ago Jay was involved in network marketing and was making six figures a year. Unfortunately, the company went under, and Jay went broke. While sitting on the couch, he decided to read the book he recommends everyone read, “The 10X Rule” by Grant Cardone. When Jay finished the book, he decided he needed to do what he was passionate about and do it at 10X speed. Jay Jackson is a fitness coach and trainer that lives in Atlanta. Jay believes that you must practice what you preach. He focuses on “coaching high-level entrepreneurs to look good and to have bulletproof confidence to live life limitlessly.”
