Marcy Predmore  0:59  
Well, good morning, everyone. This is Marcy Predmore-McPhee, with ordinary women extraordinary wealth. And today, I'm just super excited to share an interview that you are about to hear with a dear friend of mine, actually, a dear friend of Tim ionize. And he just has so much to share his wisdom is is truly beyond his age. So I'm really excited for him to just give you a few nuggets of gold today. And he started out again, in an ordinary journey, but has become extraordinary. And so my friend JT just really needs to have some light shone on that extraordinary. And, you know, we talk a lot about extraordinary wealth or ordinary women. Well, there's ordinary men out there, too, that have become extraordinary. And JT is one of those. So without further ado, I would like to introduce Jason Taylor, known to me as JT, and he's going to share just a little bit about himself. But one of the things he's truly passionate about is his family, his wife, and he really, really spotlight and focus on their three daughters. And he's going to share a little bit about that, actually, he's written a book, and it's called coaching the home team, winning the game of parenting. And that you can find on Amazon, he's going to share a little bit more about that. But he's also launching, ending the exhausting power struggle with your kids. And that's going to be launched in February. So he'll tell you a little bit about that. But again, I just want you to hear the passion for his family, for his daughters, and just for kids in general, because JT himself is an amazing athlete. And that's one of the things that he likes to shine the light on their achievements. So JT, thank you for being here this morning. And just tell the audience just a little bit about where your passion came from. And just a little bit about you.

Jason Taylor  3:11  
Oh, thanks. Thanks for that great introduction. I don't know if I'm worthy of that. But I appreciate it. Marcy, you are so welcome. Well deserved. Yes. So I go by JT, most people have known me by JT since I was in Little League. I played baseball all the way through college, and then the independent leagues. And amazingly, in college, I hurt, I got hurt, I got an injury. And I had no desire whatsoever to coach at all. And then when I was hurt, I came back home to my hometown in Denver. And the high school coach heard that I was back and asked me to come and help. And that ignited something in me that I didn't even know existed. And since then, 20 plus years, I've been coaching young athletes, of all ages of all ability levels, and part of those lessons that I've learned on the field over the years, and I've always been fascinated by coaching and good coaches. So I've studied many of them. And applying that, in seeing the results in our in our kids lives is just unbelievably amazing. And that's where the coaching the home team book was born from, and really was inspired by Bob Proctor when I was out training with him. It's Ron. Oh,

Marcy Predmore  4:40  
that's so awesome. That is that is just awesome. We're going to talk a little bit about about Mr. Bob later too.

Jason Taylor  4:48  
Perfect.

Marcy Predmore  4:49  
Yes. So again, the book they can get on Amazon, and then JT, let's just talk a little bit about, of course, your passions around that coaching. Which I'm really glad to know that because a light bulb just went off is my father was coach and a teacher, and was so so liked by his players. And I, so I grew up, watching and kind of idolizing my dad as that coach. And I'm sure that's where your girls really see you as their example. So what ending the exhausting power struggle with kids? What's that all about?

Jason Taylor  5:31  
This is an introductory course. Actually, a woman who read my book coach and own team was like, JT, you should do some online training with this. And I hadn't even I guess considered doing anything. I figured I wrote the book, I was good. But what I found is that there are smaller pieces that have broken down and a mentor is applied to that those lessons, it can be super invaluable. So what this is about is, especially in this time of COVID, this craziness, where you're spending a lot more time with your kids, but maybe it's not quality time, because there are these frustrations with the new learning process and new learning environment. And what you'll find in that is we've created the short course, to specifically address that. And it's something that, you know, we all want instant wins, right? Well, this course is designed for that, specifically, in two weeks, you will experience the most amazing transformation in terms of your one on one relationship with your kids or at home, that you won't even be able to recognize who you are after two weeks. And that's specifically how we designed it.

Marcy Predmore  6:53  
That was a phenomenal message right there. Because one of the things that we all are trying to learn the new road is when we're all together, yes, it could be time together. But we also have to create quality to that time. And sometimes kids, I mean, you have teenage girls, which sometimes people would say oh my gosh, JT, how in the world do you do that. But they really want that time with you too. So you have to create quality with them.

Jason Taylor  7:25  
100%. And I love that people ask me all the time. And they always make that sort of standing joke. When I tell him I have three girls. And they say oh, you're in trouble. And they're all teenagers. And I would 100% disagree. Yes, so amazing. So powerful. And they're all doing amazing things that are, by the way, totally different from each other.

Marcy Predmore  7:47  
Which is, which is phenomenal that they're all picking what they're passionate about. But they have such a great coach to lead them in that direction. Well, I just I just really appreciate that JT, and just sharing a little bit about your passion. So we're gonna start with some questions. And some of the questions that I asked are, are somewhat broad, but I want people to know that you and I are just ordinary, becoming extraordinary. And so these questions are really a thought, and food for thought for people today. So the very first question, it's broad, but it's so important for people to understand, JT, what is success to you?

Jason Taylor  8:35  
This is a question that I've asked asked myself many, many times. And the answer I've come up with, is not only a combination of what I've learned, but of truly what success is. To me, right, and this is, this is what I've found. Success is a comfort in knowing that you are on the right path, that you are headed in the direction that makes you feel good. And gives you wins along the way. One of the things I teach when I when I first start with a new team, and a lot of times, if I digress a little bit, a lot of times when I'm working with kids, it's a team that has not performed well in the past. And the different leagues will say JT, can you come in and coach this group, they're not having the success that they need, and we don't have a coach for them. So I'll come in and I'll coach that group for a very short time, with the end goal that they all make the majors in their division or whatever it is that they're going for. Yes, and it works every time and people in and what I found is that it's in teaching them to see success differently than others. allows them to move forward. Because if I go to a young athlete who has just been devastated by the fact that they didn't make, but certain team that they thought for sure they would make. Yeah. And if I say this is this is the way I define success is that you make that team, right? Well, then they're they're doing, they're doomed from the start. But if I say let's redefine success in the progressive realisation of a worthwhile ideal, right, you've heard that before? Absolutely. If we redefine success as a conversation, a making one good throw, as showing up to practice as doing all these things that have to be done to get you to eventually that end goal, then every day is this success, and that success breeds more success. Yes. And before you know it, you look back and you don't recognize yourself.

Marcy Predmore  10:58  
And absolutely, you need a telescope to see how far you've come. And you know that I just love that JT in the moment, you have to realize that every day is a success. And one of the things that I'm studying right now is I shared all month is you squared by price Pritchett. And there, I take a chapter, and I focus on a chapter for 30 days. And one of the things that he talks about is being aware of where you are, not where you've come, not where you're going. But be aware of where you are right now. So right now, the word aware is is really prominent in my thought process in my paradigm. So I really appreciate that, that success is is daily, it's it's, you know, it's your daily achievements, whether they be big or small. So thank you for that. The next question, and because we do talk a little bit about money now, again, wealth isn't always money, but money gives you a solid foundation, and gives you some freedom to move. Those are my words. But JT, what does wealth mean to you?

Jason Taylor  12:16  
So wealth is the total package that always has been for me. When I, when I first started on this journey, I thought wealth was money, period. It was wealth equals money. That was the whole equation. Yeah, but much like math growing up. Sometimes the equation you think is the one that gets you to the right answer is not the one that gets you to the right answer, or maybe it's a part of the equation. Yes. As your teaching math going through, you'll notice that you add on different parts to the equation, and it gives you a better answer, or a more specific answer. Right? Right. So wealth, to me, is the whole package. It's your health, it's your ability to enjoy the money. It's your ability to enjoy the free time and the experiences. Yes, you know, it. And one of the things that I like to do when relating it to monies, oftentimes, our programming has done something to us where it's, it puts money over to the left, and then everything we're good at to the right, and it makes them different. Yeah. But if you can somehow find a way to relate what you're really good at to money, and connect those two, suddenly, money is much easier to come by.

Marcy Predmore  13:44  
Wow, do I love that that is profound. I mean, truly is, when when it's not, it's not either, or it's what you were just saying, it's not either or it's not work hard, and expect some money, or work hard and not expect the money is actually coinciding, it's actually waking up every day, passionately loving what you do, and then the money will come. And again, I know some people will say, I've worked really hard for this, and it still hasn't arrived. You know, Tim and I have been working on a quantum leap for almost six years. And a lot of people would say, Oh, my gosh, and we've even had people say, why don't you just give up? Why don't you just have something else. But we're paving the way. And every day isn't the success, the money will come. But the quantum leap, the landing point is what we're really focused on. And again, the money will come easily once that happens. So it's not an overnight sensation, as you very well know.

Jason Taylor  14:52  
No, it's not. Yeah.

Marcy Predmore  14:55  
So one of the things I'm going to just jump topic for just a minute, we're going to talk a little bit about being an entrepreneur, because I know you working with Tim and I know how important that is for you. I know you've worked for people, and I know that you've really focused on growing your own business. And I really want you to encourage people. What does entrepreneurship mean to you? Number one, number two, I want you to share what does the day in the J? What does a day look like in your life? Being an entrepreneur?

Jason Taylor  15:34  
Wow, okay, I'll summarize those for you. Those are pretty big topics, right? Yes,

Marcy Predmore  15:39  
they are.

Jason Taylor  15:41  
I would say let's start with entrepreneurs. So I firmly believe in, in deep down in my soul that every single person on this planet is an entrepreneur. Yeah, I really do. And as I'm coaching kids, what I've noticed is they all are passionate about different things. And if you start that passion, you'll find out what they will eventually be an entrepreneur for. And if you can get them out of the thinking of I need to go work hard for money, and say, if I play hard in my life, money cups, and if you can change that, what you find is every single person is an entrepreneur, even if you're a stay at home, Mom, if you if if you try to tell me that's a state being a stay at home, mom is easy. I will quickly tell you, there's nothing harder in this world. Okay? Yes, yes. Unless you're passionate about it, and you're that mom who is and then you do it so effortlessly, that when your husband comes home or what or vice versa, whatever it is, in this day and age. It's amazing to me, What can be done? Yes. And I am one of those guys who believes that anybody can do anything. And sometimes when you see somebody in their passion, whether it be at home, whether it be in their work, or whether it be a graphic designer, a web designer, or somebody who teaches people how to create wealth, like you, it is amazing. And it just captivates my attention when I see somebody operating in that passion. And so as far as entrepreneurs go, everybody's an entrepreneur, in your passing right now might be finding a soulmate. Yeah. And that can be your entrepreneurial journey. endeavor doesn't. Yeah, it doesn't have to be something that defined as a job or a business, per se.

Marcy Predmore  17:50  
Yes. That and really, I just love that JT only because, and you know what, I'm going to make that a goal. Today, I want to look up the word entrepreneur, I want to see what that actually says. But when you become an entrepreneur, again, you you could work for somebody be a W two, you could be a 1099, you could, you could do whatever it is you need to do. But as long as the passion is the driver, you are the entrepreneur, because you're creating, and that's what just popped into my mind is I wonder if entrepreneurship has anything to do with creation?

Jason Taylor  18:30  
I've looked it up you find it does,

Marcy Predmore  18:32  
I'm really looking forward to looking that up. So tonight, I will do that. And I'll put it in the show notes what the definition of entrepreneur is. But um, so you shared kind of, like you said, very broad topic really hard to some kind, sometimes bring that in. So let's talk a little bit about just a daily look, let's take a look at what is your day look like from start to finish at?

Jason Taylor  18:59  
Sure. So it's gonna seem a little bit like, there's not much to it, right? But years and years ago, when my real estate company, which was very big and bringing in a ton of money, overnight collapsed. It sent me to a point where I actually attempted suicide. And not a lot of people know that wow, without me, but it was that moment in my life, where I was so attached to my business. I thought that when it died, that was the end of May. Wow. And it was my three beautiful girls and my wife that brought me out of that and got me on this road. This personal development journey that I've been on for all those years since I was 12 years ago. And since then, it has really changed but what I do now, every day without question is the first thing I do when I wake up I prepare my day. Meaning I lay there in bed and I say, this is how I would like my day to go, or something better. And I just imagine how it feels to experience that type of day. And then I get up, I make my coffee, and I sit down with a good book. And I read about a book a week. And sometimes I read the same book over and over and over again. This one right here, I'll show you or tell you about the Neville collection. Actually, Bob Proctor turned me on to to neville goddard or Neville Godard, however you pronounce it. But yeah, it's just fascinating to me. Some of these authors that have come before me add their perception of life and success and wealth and how you create that. And so I'm constantly reading those things, as well as books on coaching and making money and all these other things. It's really about whatever I'm inspired to, but every day starts out like that no matter what the rest of the day looks like.

Marcy Predmore  21:13  
Yeah, yes.

Jason Taylor  21:15  
So sometimes that's a 4:30am. Sometimes that's a 630. It totally depends on what the rest of the day looks like.

Marcy Predmore  21:22  
Yes, yeah. You know, what we get, I just have to touch on something that you said. And, and no, I didn't, I didn't know that in your background, about just your identity and the loss of that. But I just, again, I just had to it resonated with me, because I worked in an industry for almost 30 years. And and when I left that business, I felt like in the community I lived in, I lost my identity. I really wasn't Marcy, I was just this to everybody else. So it just resonated when you said that JT about, you know, an overnight loss like that your identity goes with it. And, and of course, again, I won't interrupt anymore, but for 12 years now, you've been really fortifying growing you.

Jason Taylor  22:15  
Yeah, no, it's, I think you'll find a lot of people in business. They really take it seriously, when they start their own business in, if I can tell anybody who's thinking about starting a business, one thing that would change everything is I would take it as seriously as playing a game with my kids. And if you do that, it changes your perception. And by changing that little perception, it will make it a whole lot more fun, and a whole lot easier.

Marcy Predmore  22:55  
I love that. And really, it's, it's just so easy, just have fun with it, make it a game. I know Tim and I were just talking with a client the other day, and again, it just resonated as we said, sometimes money is just a game. And you have to you have to play it like a game and not get so serious. But I'll have the tip of the week at the end that I really feel like you have to be focused, but really play a game. I love that too. And and just a great tip for anybody who is getting ready to or thought about starting a business and, and not really sure how or if they can. So let's talk just a little bit about as we're talking about growth and personal growth. You mentioned neville goddard. And that's how I say it too. But so in in your day, do you I know you go to events, I know you read books, give the audience just a few other tips and tools of people that you would do go back and read the same author more than once or, you know, journaling or affirmations. What what is the what are some of those practical tools every day?

Jason Taylor  24:12  
Yeah, well, journaling is a big one. And I journal almost every day I'm not. I'm not 100% diligent in that. And then I give myself some leeway if I don't feel like it today. I don't do it. Yeah, yeah. And what I noticed is at the end of every year for about the last four years now, I go through that journal. And when you look at some of the journal entries in January, compared to the ones in July and October, I mean, there's no way I would be able to keep score on my life if I didn't journal because it is such an amazing change. Yeah, in the more advanced you get in this in person, personal element, the quicker the changes become. And part of that is your perception is changing a little bit on change, right? Because at first, when you start this journey, you're really, you don't like change very much, typically, yes. But as you progress and see the changes and going back and reviewing those, you're like, Oh, I want to change some more. Change this, I want to change that. And what happens is those winds come so fast that if you're not tracking them, you just have no idea how far you've come.

Marcy Predmore  25:33  
Oh, my gosh, is that ever the truth? And and again, I'm going to just just chime in just a little bit on, and you said something earlier. But sometimes the failure is what creates the success, you've got to fail, or maybe not attain it as quickly as possible, because that's what drives you, and what creates the actual success. I know, that's where I've come from, too, as you talked about losing a business overnight is the same thing. I ran a business for 30 years, closed the doors, lost my identity, and it felt like, you know, everything was just over. But it spurred me on. It gave me the courage to take the next step. Oh, absolutely.

Jason Taylor  26:25  
Yeah, absolutely. And I liken this to athletes on the field to Marcy in it. And I, you know, me, I always bring it back to that, right?

Marcy Predmore  26:34  
Yes, yes. Which is great. Because people couldn't wait.

Jason Taylor  26:38  
That's right. If I have a star pitcher, who comes into the high school level, as a freshman is an absolute star pitches on varsity his first year, it is much more likely that he will be the same person or very similar as a senior as he was as a freshman than somebody who comes in as a freshman doesn't make it on varsity and has to work to get better to attain that. Yes. And the reason why is if we're doing okay, there's not much motivation to change. That's exactly right. So the bigger the failure, the more excited I get, because if I really screw it up, I know that the lesson that comes out of that is going to really watch my next level switch to success.

Marcy Predmore  27:28  
And that I just love it. That's exactly I mean, you and I are on the same page for sure. And it brings me to another topic that we're going to talk about because you are so involved with children families. Right now. That's where you are entrenched. So we're going to talk a little bit about tradition. And yes, we're going to bring money into it. So growing up, JT, what was your tradition around money that you you either carry today positively or carry today negatively?

Jason Taylor  28:03  
That's That's an excellent question, Marcy. And a lot of people I think listening to this are going to relate to what I'm about to say. But as a kid growing up, I grew up in a family of nine. So I got eight brothers and sisters. And my dad was of the old school came from Pennsylvania farm, you have to work hard to make money. And you have to spend a lot of time at it. Yes, right. So he was never around growing up. And when he came home, my mom and him would constantly fight about his spending habits is wanting to support me in baseball, and the other my brothers and sisters in what they were doing. And my mom saying that we needed to buy food instead of doing that. So it was constantly a, a fight in the House about that. So at a very early age. In fact, at 11 years old, I started my first paper route, it was completely responsible for delivering and collection and everything. And as soon as I could get a workers permit, I immediately was working at the pizza place down the street, and continued to work several jobs throughout high school and college and have always, really the good I take from that is not I am not afraid of hard work. I call it something different these days. I like to say that I play very hard every single day. Whether I'm on the baseball field, whether I'm coaching somebody as an individual client, whether I'm talking to somebody like you as a radio host it on this podcast it whatever it is, I'm playing hard. I'm full in I'm all in. That was one thing that I take away from my that I learned from my father that I would never give back. Yeah. The one thing that has really driven me to become wealthy myself is The fact that my parents were always fighting about money, I looked at that situation, I said, that is not what I want. That is not what my kids are going to experience. That is not what I'm going to experience. And even if it becomes a struggle in our household, we don't fight about money forever. Any conversation we have, is a positive way of framing whatever the actual situation is.

Marcy Predmore  30:28  
I love that and what great advice to because, you know, I mean, if we really want to be honest, there's, there's one thing that will take down in marriage, and it's usually money. And it's usually two people having kind of like your folks kind of having two different, they had their own tradition around money, your dad had his, your mom had his, they are imparting two different traditions to you and your brothers and sisters. And so one wasn't right or wrong. But in a marriage or in a family, you really do have to it's a topic you have to discuss, you can't just brush it under the rug, and like you said, Go to work hard, sometimes you have to have a goal together. And usually, that would be one of them would probably be a money goal. And I tell people that a lot as Tim and I, with our private banking concepts business, we mentor a lot of people, as you will know. And one of the things that we share with people is, you really do have to, when it comes to money, you have to be aware again of where you are. And you have to keep score, you just have to, because if you don't, it'll creep up on you. And it will take control. So I really appreciate that piece of message JT, because it's awesome that in your family, it becomes just a topic of conversation and communication, rather than a division.

Jason Taylor  32:06  
Yeah, I knew, I knew even long before I came on this path of personal discovery, it was not going to happen like that in my house. And so any conversation about money is always a conversation, not a fight, not a debate. It's an open conversation where both parties are listening. You talk it out and out of that conversation, you have a plan to move forward.

Marcy Predmore  32:34  
That's awesome. So tell me this. You came away from your mom and dad, with your daughters? Do you? Is that a topic topic of conversation? Have they come to you? Or have you come to them? And it's been a conversation with them on, on if they have jobs and saving money? Or what to do with it? Or how to how to take care of?

Jason Taylor  32:57  
Yeah, it's a very interesting conversation too, because my wife still works in a in a job. And obviously, I'm an entrepreneur and constantly pursuing bigger and better things. Yes. And she is very much in the mindset of, I like the security and stability of knowing I'm getting a check every month. And I'm very good at what I do. I like that. And when she has conversations with our children, they're often along those lines. And whenever the girls come to me, and they're saying, Hey, Dad, I was thinking about this, and I'm like, you could do that as a job. Or you could create the opportunity for others to work for you. In which case, you'd be creating a lot more value than if you just worked in that industry as a job. And oftentimes, they'll go away from that and say, ah, dad says his thing, but the one thing I know about parenting is always instruct from your heart, and make sure that they know that they love you. And everything else will follow. So there will be a time in conversation where I see them having that conversation with their grandpa or grandma or with a friend. And they're saying, Well, what they will say those same things, even though they won't admit it to me, they will say those same things, to their friends to their grandparents and say, hey, what

Marcy Predmore  34:22  
if I did it like this? And this and it just shows me that when you're leading by example, those lessons getting rained, regardless, right? Regardless of what they say back to you in that moment. Don't be don't be discouraged because you think they didn't learn that lesson because I will absolutely tell you if you're coming from a place of love, they did learn that lesson. And they will use it and that that is so true. And that's going to lead me to the next question because they listened to you and a seed was planted. They might poopoo it in front of you, but they regurgitated. So they heard what you had to say. You heard your dad's passion behind what he did. So let's talk about who you listen to. And that's going to encompass some mentors. But let's first talk about who you listen to. So again, in your daily, the daily tools that you use, I know you read a lot. But what else? What else do you do you listen to any podcast, YouTubes anything that really motivate you to change your paradigm around money around life around entrepreneurship, anything like that.

Jason Taylor  35:49  
I'm constantly throughout the day, it's funny because it's become a running joke in my family when they get my car the the podcast or the recordings or the audio books, or they just come on because you know, your your fancy cars now remember, and when you get in and your phone connects, they start playing whatever it is you're listening to. My girls will say dead. We don't want to listen to your stuff. Can you listen to music?

Marcy Predmore  36:19  
Like No, my car.

I'm constantly enjoying podcast free neville goddard. podcast is a fantastic one. It's a little bit crass, meaning that he is blunt. His name is Mr. 2020. And sometimes, but you take the good with the bad, right? Whatever. It's a very good way of restructuring your thinking. In terms of audio books, I'm a member of audible. And whenever I I read a good book, I'm like, man, I'd like to listen to this too. Because you're, that's two different forms of learning. I'll download that. And it'll just come on and play. As I said, when I'm driving the kids around, or whatever I'm doing. Yeah. And it's a great way to take advantage of that time commuting. I know a lot of people are commuting as much as they were before. But when you do, you might as well take advantage of that time.

Marcy Predmore  37:20  
Oh, gosh, that is so true. And I know I do the exact same thing I love to listen to I love to listen, and read. I am truly an auditory in some ways. But for me to really comprehend it, sometimes I have to go back to the book. And then I have to visually see it. It's just just how I learn. I'm not one that can hear something and it just stays there. So one of the books again, many of you know is thinking grow rich. And right now I've been reading the chapter on persistence. And I listened to it on my phone as I walk, run, do my thing outside, but then I come home and then I read the chapter again, or am I just read a paragraph? Just so it kind of cements it into my subconscious? I guess. So. Yeah. So I truly love that. And I'm excited to ask you because again, you and I have you and Tim and I have have kind of grown up in the last few years together in and just the the people that we do listen to or the mentors that we have. And I have to encourage each of you out there in the audience. If you don't have a mentor, alive or not with us anymore. You need to really focus on a mentor and somebody that you know has been where you've been, but achieved what you want to achieve. So JT, tell us a little bit about some mentors that have really remoulded your life.

Jason Taylor  39:06  
Well, I'm going to tell you about a couple that has really changed my life tremendously over the last couple of years. And one of the things that I do in my morning preparation, I don't like to call it meditation because people have a certain connotation on that, you know, you can call a prayer, meditation, whatever. Every ancient writing says that you should take time for yourself. And that's what that is. So call whatever you want. But oftentimes, if I'm faced with a particular challenge in my life, I will actually imagine a mentor that has the qualities that I'm looking for at that moment. And I will tell you, and this might be a crass commercial, but I will tell you, Tim, and Marcy came into my life from doing that. And it was, we had been running in the same groups for years, and it Didn't know each other? That's exactly in the moment, I was looking for something specific, that the two of you had you showed up and have absolutely impacted my life in a positive way. Probably more than you didn't, you know, through what do you guys do in teaching this wealth component, this total wealth, you know, in using money more than once and all these things that you teach people that are just, it was totally, there's no way I could have known that somebody would do that. Right. Yeah. So what I did is I said, I wanted some powerful teachers who believed in what, what they were doing, who had been where I've been, and who are now experiencing the success that I wanted, that I want to experience, and you showed up.

Marcy Predmore  40:49  
That is, thank you so much. I mean, it's just such a joy when we get to be with like minds. And, again, we started out very ordinary, we started out in the trenches of life, if you want to call it that, but, but we really want to share the extraordinary that can be and thank you for just, you know, having us be one of your mentors, because it's it's a joy to see your growth. And it's a joy to see how you grow. And just the passion around that we did, we were in the same circles for the longest time, under a same roof at different events. But we really didn't even know each other. And now we really gotten to know that we both them, we all three, we all four really feel strongly about that growth. And, you know, a dear friend of mine said, and I mentioned this always because his name pops in. He's no longer with us. He's in heaven. But he reminds me often if you're not growing, you're dying. And JP, you, you give me that encouragement. When I see you. You give me that encouragement, because you're always sharpening your sword. You're always preparing. Whether it be success or not, you are always preparing. So you give me that encouragement. And I just want to share that with the audience. Because JT is somebody you'll want to get to know and read his book. And really, if you are out there, and you have children, you're raising children get on his launch, I believe you said it was February, middle of February, correct.

Unknown Speaker  42:38  
February 17,

Marcy Predmore  42:40  
February 15. And we are going to have that link in the show notes for people to get together. But um, so really, the last very last thing I just really want to bring up, JT, I know mentors are a big thing to you. And, and thank you so much. You've also mentioned Bob, Bob Proctor is a mentor of JT and eyes. And Tim, we actually were able to travel to Canada quite a few times. Right now not traveling, but I listened to Bob every day. And is there any other any other tip or tool that you can share on mentors, or just really, um, next steps and being that entrepreneur?

Jason Taylor  43:25  
Yeah, well, I highly recommend what I briefly mentioned earlier about creating that mentor in your mind, and then they'll show up in your physical experience. And, and that's how Bob showed up in my life. And he's been an unbelievably powerful mentor for me. Not only do I own all his books, I've done a lot of his programs, I went and studied with him for a week in the matrix. And that was perfect for me and may not be for you or for your audience. But that was perfect for me when I did that. And the one thing I would say about a mentor is you can get where you want to go on your own absolutely can. It's just going to take you more time, it's going to be a little harder, and the path will be more like a winding Canyon Road than a highway. When you add a mentor, what you're doing is really increasing your belief in what you can do, because you have somebody who's been where you are showing you the highway to where you want to be. And eventually you will pass them. Eventually, you will pass them on that highway and any mentor that is their goal. They don't want to see you just succeed to their level. There is nothing that brings more pleasure to a coach or to a trainer or to a mentor than seeing their students surpass them.

Marcy Predmore  44:56  
Oh gosh,

Jason Taylor  44:57  
I can't even describe what that feels. Like,

Marcy Predmore  45:01  
and what a way to wrap up I mean, that touched my heart. And I know there's many hearts that are attached right now is a mentor once more for you than you. And, and I know Bob and a few of the people that we listen to, they want that for us. JT, I just want to thank you so much for joining me today and just really showing your ordinary to your extraordinary. So people can be encouraged by being an entrepreneur, failure to success, all of those things, but more importantly, passion for your family. And I just want to share with the audience, just a tip of the week on money. We are extraordinary wealth here. And I just really want you to know that one of the things that JT talked about, and that we touched on was keeping score. And I know I've mentioned this before, but your own finances, I want you to take a look at your finances. This week, I want that to be a number one thing that you do is take a look at your debt, take a look at your assets, really get to know your money, and how it works with you and for you. So the tip of the week is keep score, know where you are. So you know where you're going. So I just want to thank you so much. And I just want to tell everybody to have a truly extraordinary day.

Jason Taylor  46:42  
Absolutely. And remember, if you don't know what the score is in a baseball game, it's gonna be really tough to watch. Oh,

Marcy Predmore  46:51  
that's I that's a great wrap up right there. Thank you so much, JT.
