Jason A. Dixon inspires young people to trade in their goods for greats by unlocking their potential, passion, and purpose.

His story is proof that achieving greatness is not about having the most ability. It is about having the courage, commitment, and conviction to take your gifts and positively impact the world around you.

Not only does Coach Jason use his platform as a top motivational speaker to positively impact young people in middle school, high school, and college. He also helps them realize the power they possess and understand the true meaning of success.

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 Toledo, Ohio’s roughest area, Coach Jason bravely continued to dream.

He went on to become a first-generation college graduate. Following that, his 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, his vision endowed him with the internal fortitude to keep pressing on.

With each speech, he encourages audiences to do the same and speaks in a way that empowers young people to believe that greatness truly does live inside them.

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.”
