Jake isn’t a celebrity, a mountain climber, or a rock star. He’s an ordinary person, who figured out how to thrive in extraordinary circumstances. His talk will challenge how you deal with change, make you laugh hysterically, and walk away feeling uplifted so that you can be a stronger person inside and out!
Inspiration lights up your people’s inner drive to push past limitations and perform at their highest level. Jake French teaches what fuels inspiration, inhibits it, and the strategies you can use to leverage it.
