The Upreneur podcast has partnered up with SCORE, hosted by Jeremy Straub, to help bring engaging conversations with today’s top leaders and business owners. In today’s episode, we spoke with Jon Jay 10 year Major League Baseball veteran.
A product of Columbus high school in Miami, Fl Jon played college baseball for his childhood dream The University of Miami where he was a 2nd round pick of the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2006 MLB first-year player draft. Jon made his Major league debut in 2010 and was a member of the 2011 World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals. Throughout his career he has also played for the San Diego Padres, Chicago Cubs, Kansas City Royals, Chicago White Sox and recently completed the 2020 season with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Jon is just as impressive off the field using skills and lessons he has learned from his baseball journey to his everyday life. When he is not on the field, in the gym, or with his family Jon is meeting with business professionals throughout the US constantly trying to educate himself and has been involved in real estate, marketing, and other business ventures from investing to consulting. On top of that, he gives back to the community. Jon is so much more than just a baseball player, he is an outstanding member of society. He truly wants the world to be a better place, and he plans to make that happen. He has hosted charity events in Miami and in cities that he has played in. He loves to mentor anyone from kids to his fellow MLB teammates.
In this episode, we spoke about how having the right kind of pressure can help you be successful and accomplish your goals. When playing the game of life, short term profits can make you miss out on long term opportunities. Trust the process, and continue to work on your craft. If you are an overall good person, that can translate into being a good friend, good employee, good dad, and so on.
