Jake has always been a “hungry” kid. Growing up his dream was to play for the Lakers. But, at 5’8’’, that wasn’t going to happen. So, Jake studied to be a sports agent to be able to work with the players and the Lakers in some way. He was willing to do whatever he could. Coming out of college, he put his hustle and what he had learned to work and go a job with the Lakers to work in corporate partnerships.
He got to be on the court and work in the business and with the players every day.
“In the pursuit of greatness, you must always be willing to take action every day because great things will happen when we don’t expect them or how we expect them.”
It wasn’t too long before he realized that it was time to move on and start his own business career. He started his first business, launched several books, building a combine for the NBA, and teaching entrepreneurs how to build a 6-figure business – all from creating world class networks.

Misfits, running multiple businesses working with clients across 50 countries keeps me pretty busy. Not to mentioned keeping up with family duties and events. I’m always looking for ways to gain leverage and make my life easier. And the ability to offload even the smallest tasks makes a big difference. And one convenience I never thought of until I started using it, are smart bulbs connected to Amazon Alexa.
Seriously, I love this. I literally can automate the lights in my house and control them from wherever I am. I also can make sure to turn them off when the kiddo leaves them on when we leave for a long weekend, saving us money. I cannot stress how easy it is to set these things up and use them – it took me about 4 minutes the first time and now, it’s just a few seconds.
And that is the beauty of it, with Amazon Smart Lighting, you can turn your home into smart home in just a few minutes. You can even changes colors and brightness, set lighting routines, turn lights on or off just by asking Alexa to do it for you or from the Alexa app.
