How To Fall In Love With The Process Of Being Great | Jake Kelfer - Part 2

December 8, 2020

Jake Kelfer’s professional journey out of college took a right turn when the job he had lined up disappeared. Instead of being a NBA player’s agent raking in the bucks, Jake found himself working for the L.A. Lakers where he was influenced by the likes of Kobe Bryant and for us older NBA fans, the great Jerry West. Jake left the Lakers after Kobe’s retirement and has gone on to become a 2x bestselling author, global speaker, and founder of Pro Basketball Combine which has helped 70+ NBA draft prospects sign their first contract. Jake is also a coach to entrepreneurs and freedom seekers. 

In part two of my feature interview Jake tells us that:


  • we have to stop giving importance to things outside of our control
  • to grow we need to start from a place of gratitude
  • there has never been a better time to start your own business
  • starting over is hard, but so is staying broken and depressed
  • It’s the hard challenges we face make us who we are
  • The person you are is good enough to connect with the people you want 


And tell us that Kobe Bryant taught him the importance of falling in love with the process of being great.
