Former NFL Star Jordan Babineaux’s New Book Becomes an #1 International Bestseller

Published

on

After building his identity as an NFL star, thought leader, sports broadcaster, and entrepreneur, Jordan Babineaux is now receiving accolades as an author. Jordan’s recently released book titled Pivot to Win is receiving high praise in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada. The book is currently Amazon’s top bestseller in all three countries, including two categories in the United States. Pivot to Win is currently available in Kindle as well as Paperback versions. 

In his book, Jordan shares the challenges he faced while rising through the NFL to fulfill a dream he envisioned as a kid. He talks about the uncomfortable reality of leaving the NFL, starting a broadcast career, and becoming an entrepreneur, consultant, and owner of several businesses. He discusses the adversities he has triumphed over, the hard lessons that he has learned, and things he had to accept to grow.

Jordan also shares:

  • How to cultivate the mentality and determination needed to pivot successfully
  • Why pivots are hard and what tools people need to persevere
  • Why having a Pivot to Win Playbook is critical for anyone who desires greatness

Pivot to Win is a must-read for anyone pursuing challenging goals, a better life, or a desire to overcome difficult circumstances. Jordan Babineaux shows us how important the inner game is to win—and offers clear, actionable techniques for mastering that game. He does this through a moving memoir that conveys his personal story and the deep motivation he has that fueled his success. Self-knowledge, self-awareness, and self-control are superpowers when it comes to winning, and Babineaux is the motivational coach to help you bring your all to the game,” said Marilyn Gist, Ph.D., former professor, University of Washington and Seattle University, and author of The Extraordinary Power of Leader Humility

Jordan comes from the small town of Port Arthur, Texas with an NCAA Division II football career under his belt. While leaving the NFL, he felt like losing his identity along with his jersey. However, with his courage and fierce determination, he was able to avoid the pitfalls that many professional athletes face during transition. Partnering with his brother Jonathan Babineaux, he has built several successful businesses, including a film production company and a Seattle-based transportation service.

Resolute Media CEO Announces Brisbane THRIVE Initiative for Local Businesses

Published

on

Resolute Media CEO, Brian Richards, has revealed a new initiative for local Brisbane, Queensland businesses, to be launched officially in the first week of September, 2021.

Called the Brisbane THRIVE Initiative, this project will seek to assist local South East Queensland businesses in Australia, especially those who are continuing to feel the impact of the pandemic.

“Business is a challenge for smaller operations at the best of times,” said Richards, “Given the additional hurdles continuing to be faced, we want to make the best traffic, training and tools we have available to interested Brisbane businesses.”

Richards has decades of experience in employing digital technologies to support business outcomes. He is keen to provide more immediate, practical, evidence-based support for the small business sector.

Resolute Media has already begun work on the infrastructure and systems needed to start rolling out the Brisbane THRIVE Initiative from early September through to the end of 2021 and potentially ongoing, depending on the feedback and outcomes experienced.

“We have always believed in leading with value,” Richards explained, “That has meant creating results in advance for clients wherever possible. We have now expanded and formalised that long-held business philosophy in our new credo of Proof Over Promises.”

Richards asserts that Proof Over Promises principles will underpin all aspects of the Brisbane THRIVE Initiative. This means that local business owners will be afforded numerous weekly opportunities to test out for themselves a broad range of cutting edge marketing technologies, at no cost and with no obligations. A number of these resources are proprietary and exclusive to Resolute Media, who will fund the initial availability of these assets.

The marketing systems firm will also provide comprehensive training, tools and traffic options on a complimentary basis from September onwards. It is devoting August to setting up structures, preliminary testing and seeking feedback from interested parties.

Those parties will include local Brisbane charities and groups, who have also been severely impacted by the pandemic. Resolute Media will be looking for opportunities to support these non-profits in a number of projects under consideration for this year.

Further information can be obtained by emailing [email protected] A dedicated website and social media presence are also being created to provide regular updates leading up to the launch of the Brisbane THRIVE Initiative in early September, 2021.
