Jay Barnett is a former professional athlete who has written 3 books on the development of teens. As a best selling author he has seen the word leadership defined numerous ways over the years. Is it charisma and positive thinking? Fitted suits and bow ties? Decisiveness? Is it all about the situation? Is it meant only for the chosen few who rise to the top? Or is there a different story?
With over 10 years of experience mentoring, public speaking, and most important, real-life in the trenches business experience, his view is radically different. He has generated countless success stories and has transformed hundreds of lives. Jay shares with his mentees that leadership is a moment-to-moment choice and not about title and position. Leadership is for everyone. It’s a choice. It’s how we should live our life.
As a leader in the community, Jay serves as the senior consultant and Master Teen Mentor with his Sugar Land, Texas-based organizations. His various organizations serve “at risk” teens ages 13-18, which includes children and teens transitioning through foster care and group homes. He also offers Back To School Back Pack Campaigns as well as Football and Basketball Camps. He continues to work with the best and brightest in the leadership development field. As a result of working with Jay, teens develop winning mindsets, self-esteem, self worth-worth, and value for their bodies.

Love Jay’s story! “Fear is necessary; instigator…courage steps in.” “Failure; it’s part of the process…grow from it.” Winning mindset; “winners are made…some characteristics are innate…cultivated…based on perspective.” “Stay consistent and faithful.”

One of his Motto I adapt is ….”stay consistent and faithful”. Which is what I’m doing ?
Thanks for your comment Tamara! I agree. He speaks from a very genuine place. Despite his success, he’s very humble which also adds to his relatability. Have a wonderful new year!
