We got to catch a moment to ask Speaker Jeff J. Cunningham aka JeffTheEntreprenuer Why He Took A Boxing Match On 10 Days Notice. here is what he said;
Well scared me to say yes. Fear is a direction like my Business Partner Andy Audate of the Progreda.com software tells me. So I attacked it.
Last time something like this happened to me I was told I could never play QB, since I didn’t know plays or how to throw in pads. I wound up changing my throwing motion like Tebow, learning a playbook, and earning to start QB in SemiPro Football. I share this in my Keynote as a Speaker on Amazon Prime Video in Speak Up Season 2 under name My Dreams Keep Me Awake. (Merch line)
See, This changed my confidence in my life. One year took off from football and boxed and fell in love with the sport. I actually love what Jake Paul and Logan Paul are doing, not only great marketers but pretty good fighters. I cant wait for Logan or Jake to brave the UFC with Dana White.
New challenge and I was scrappy – but the main reason I said yes, besides knowing great Real Estate Legend Carlos Reyes is calling the fight with Pat Hilton, but main reason is the cause.
Most don’t know I lost my mom to breast cancer, no life insurance, and totally impacted my family for the worse and saw what it did. I try not to think of it, so I fight against it. This time I really am fighting for something.
‘Can you tell me why you do all this?
“It was Friday morning 10am, my sister’s wedding was the following week, and I was going to wake up my brother Jay to get a haircut. He didn’t wake up.”
He died of an overdose of fentanyl that still I hear to many times listed today of causing lives lost.
I told this therapist lady the dream me and my brother sketched out on a napkin of the coffee shop / studio we would call Kokomo, and she said I would never get there.
So now m my why, to build KokomoJays.com – it will happen. We are looking to do a YouTube studio and possibly take it into the VR side.
The vision is to have top level celebrities influencers come to KokomoJ ays so you can ‘get a sighting of someone like Bruno Mars or Jake Paul’
This led to me all forming Changing Lives Consulting Group – And led to much paid travel, air fare and paid to be a Speaker to businesses and at events
