Jeff Grant on making a difference
I’ve been described as having infectious enthusiasm, relentless positive energy, and always a smile to share. Truth is, I’m just thrilled to be alive and to have the chance to pursue my passions on a daily basis. I love helping people improve their lives and offering them tools and insights for thriving in adversity. The more opportunities I have to make new connections and help people awaken and strengthen their Inner Coach’s voice, the happier and more fulfilled I am.
My perspective and coaching approach are not based on elite performances and a career in professional athletics. Rather, they are based on enduring and overcoming the Struggle in myself and others. Personally, this includes the struggle in transitioning from an overweight, sedentary IT professional into an ultra endurance athlete, the struggle of transitioning from a stressed-out corporate worker into a successful business owner, and the struggle of chasing down and making big dreams come true despite the many temptations to remain in a comfort zone.
Do what you love: building a coaching practice
I fully embraced a philosophy of “Do what you love” in 2010 by leaving a successful 18-year corporate career to focus full time on coaching and writing. Professionally, I am a coach, author, motivational speaker, and team builder. Purely for joy, I am an ultra-endurance athlete, musician, and outdoor sports enthusiast. I am also an active supporter of charity work in Malawi and Cambodia as a Board of Directors member at the nonprofit Face-to-Face Project.
