It's not us. It's you.

Truly, Compete Every Day is ABOUT YOU.

You have the power deep in your gut to...

  • Increase your mental toughness
  • Smash your fitness goals
  • Thrive in your career
  • Do the work and get better

The problem is you don't know where to begin...

  • You can't figure out how to tap into your limitless potential.
  • You're looking for a "secret solution" to becoming a better leader or athlete.
  • You think you need a talent you don't have to fulfill your goals.

Reaching your full potential isn't about the talents you were born with. It's about taking action.

Who am I?

My name is Jake Thompson.

I'm passionate about sparking fires beneath people to compete every day in their life and career.

I create gear, content, and other resources to help Competitors grow their mindsetinfluence, and focus.

In 2011, I started Compete Every Day by selling motivational t-shirts from the trunk of my car.

But my gear wasn't just for anyone...

It was for ambitious leaders who wanted to make a bigger impact in their professional + personal lives. The kind of people with an on-fire determination to win.

If that’s you, just know, you’re in the right place.

And if I can use my grit and hustle to create the life I’ve always wanted – you can too.
