By Sean Si
Jayson does not like getting certifications for the sake of increasing credibility. He believes that the right reason to get certifications is if you genuinely want to learn. He does get certifications for personal growth. He notes that you can’t give what you don’t have, and so he looks to learn things for the sake of sharing it with others. Jayson has gone through 15 businesses, with at most four going on at the same time. Recently, he has been focusing on his public speaking and publishing books. Among his philosophies is if you want to start another business, it would be better if it’s connected with your original business... until you are able to grow it— that is the time to diversify. Jayson already has a strong brand. Through more hard work, he’ll become huge in no time. He is thankful that the majority of his clients get to know him because of word of mouth. because of this, he is almost certain that he can keep his clients. That he wasn’t invited because of unnecessary hype, but because they truly believe that Jayson is a good speaker. Jayson Averages 200 talks a year. Just thinking about it is already tiring. But for him, it’s just another challenge down the line. He plans on building up speakers that have the same DNA as him. Those who would focus on empowerment, and believing in the next generation. Being a speaker is a big responsibility. You can’t just say anything you want when you’re on stage. You need to be disciplined enough to say only what needs to be said. It also comes with a few perks. Even with an average of 200 talks per year, Jayson still owns his time. He can choose to say yes or no to an invitation. He can choose the people he wants to work with. Support the show (https://tribe.leadershipstack.com/)
