Jeff’s unique empathy and significant personal credibility makes him a world-class mentor who can guide diverse individuals to achieve their path to maximum potential. His book “Inner Rival” is a tangible playbook that distills the best of many decades of the self-help advice industry with remarkable clarity and practicality, while adding compelling new elements. Jeff speaks from lived experience and his own challenges in a world often rigidly measured in binary fashion: “win vs loss”, “success vs failure”, "credit vs blame". We all have a negative voice within, and he knows how to silence that voice and redirect it into calmness, focus and meaningful achievement.

7-Time Minnesota High School Basketball State Champion Coach

"At the end of our season last year, in meeting with my players the overall consistent message I got is that my players struggled with their confidence. Jeff from Inner Rival reached out to me and we scheduled a session. Myself, as well as my players, found it to be an incredible experience, and will for sure be using his expertise throughout our upcoming season. His program will not only help the kids with their game but it will also carry over into their life off the court. Our goal as a program is to promote a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally, and Inner Rival is a perfect catalyst towards that goal, as Jeff is a former coach and player who has first hand experience in dealing with the pressures that go along with competing in today's ever challenging athletic environments."
