Jason A. Dixon inspires young people to trade in their goods for greats while helping them reach their potential.

His story is proof that success is not about fortune, fame, or personal gain. It is about having the courage, commitment, and conviction to make a choice and chase your dreams.

Coach Jason is the epitome of perseverance and strength. But he is also known as The Greatness Coach and a top motivational speaker for young people in middle school, high school, and college.

His extraordinary messages remind audiences of this: “You have the talent it takes to go and be great and gifts to share with the world.”

“Trading in your goods for greats is all about becoming the best version of yourself. Each day is an opportunity to be better than you were the day before, and that can only happen when you have passion and purpose.” Coach Jason tells audiences.

Born with a rare disability that affected his fine motor skills and coordination, Coach Jason decided to defy the odds and not allow his condition to define him.

He knows firsthand what it takes to rise from the ashes, break cycles, and pursue greatness. While growing up in one of Toledo, Ohio’s roughest areas, Coach Jason bravely continued to dream.

He went on to become a first-generation college graduate. Following that, Coach Jason’s professional achievements included working as a sportswriter, coaching high school and college basketball, and serving as an educator and qualified mental health specialist.

In 2007, Coach Jason’s speaking career began with a goal and mission to impact young people worldwide. Despite dark days, Coach Jason’s vision endowed him with the internal fortitude to keep pressing on.

Now, Coach Jason passionately urges his audiences to do the same. He speaks in a way that connects with hearts and minds and creates a sense of belief that anything is possible.

He tells his audiences, “You have to be tougher than the obstacles that stand in your way, stronger than the negative words people might say, and crazy enough to believe your dreams will come true someday.”
