Jake Ballentine | Creating a Community is the New Coaching Currency


What’s holding you back? 

So often people—especially entrepreneurs—create, study or build anything new, and get stuck in the cycle of perfectionism. You can work and work and work on a project, and no matter how much of your heart, talent, and resources you invest, it feels like it’s never good enough so you never actually launch. Breaking free from that cycle is the most important step you can do for yourself your and business, and that’s exactly how Jake Ballentine created epic success as a musician and entrepreneur. He owned the value in his work and released it—the way it was, without obsessing over whether or not the work was “perfect.” 

Ready. FIRE! Aim. 

Jake also shares his take on how to cultivate community within your business. He believes that community fosters an environment that helps you maintain momentum without ever losing inspiration. For him, it’s about trusting yourself to take those first steps, and allowing yourself to be called by the mission and pull.
