jason’s short story...
World Champion | Pan Am Games Gold Medalist
Speaker | High Performance Coach | Olympic Psychologist
What do you do when you are an elite athlete and the wins stop? The plan for professional BMX racer Jason Richardson had been simple. He traded training for studying and gotten his undergrad and graduate degrees while racing. Post retirement he planned to transition into corporate life, using his MBA in Global Marketing to help companies expand their reach. One problem: while this was a fit, it wasn't the best one.
Anyone who has listened to Jason in the commentator's booth at a race, seen him at a public speaking engagement or sat and talked to him about husband life, fatherhood or cars knows that at his heart, "J Rich" is a people person. Helping corporate brands expand their reach just missed the mark. What actually excited him was working to help the people in those corporations build and expand their personal brands in order to build stronger companies. So, Jason course corrected; again splitting his time between the track and the classroom, earning a Doctorate in Psychology.
This latest achievement gave Dr. Jason Richardson the tools to start on his new journey, but his old one was not quite over. Jason continued racing, winning gold at the Pan American Championship and landing a sponsorship with one of BMX's oldest and largest companies. When he retired - as the number three ranked racer in the Elite Men's division - the wins hadn't stopped but the focus had shifted.
Dr. Richardson had thousands of hours of conversations, aiding people in overcoming their own limitations; coaching Olympic athletes, executives, and people who were stuck in a proverbial rut. The one thing that united them all:
The desire to do more, get better and be happier!
This realization pushed Jason to formulate the base of his approach, that a #ChampionshipLife requires that you recognize and play on your strengths while recontextualizing your weaknesses. Treating your day to day mentality the way a champion athlete approaches physical training will allow you to maximize not just your potential, but your achievements. In short Dr. Richardson's program focuses on helping you be:
More. Better. Happier.
