Ironic that I will write this blog after just leaving the Eminem concert. Now I have never had a drink, done drugs, or even smoked. I don’t care if other people do, it’s just a personal belief that I have kept based on what it did to my family. Although after leaving the concert I may now know what it feels like to get high, because I think I may have been the only one not on anything… although I am high on life and the prospects which it brings.
So who is JT Foxx? A question hundreds of thousands of people continuously try to ask themselves and so far it has been impossible. Nothing my family, best friends, partners, and even the people closest to me have been able to figure out.
Truth be told, there are 3 JT Foxxs and all are very different. If you think I am unpredictable, then you are probably right because every action and every word that comes out of my mouth is strategic. I don’t do or say anything unless it has purpose or leads to something.
JT Foxx #1–Stage JT: Powerfu
And yes I used to be an asshole–a very big one, but you have to understand that my whole life people told me I would never do it and all I wanted was acceptance from my parents, from the haters growing up, or the hundreds of girls I got rejected by in high school. But I realized that the day I became a millionaire, trying to prove people wrong was only making things worse. I needed to stop looking down for approval and instead look up. The day I did that a huge load came off my shoulders and I became a better person. Stage JT does not need to prove anything to anyone anymore and the only person that can beat him is himself. I don’t speak against other speakers; I speak to make a difference and create my legacy. I don’t want to be known as someone who made billions; I want to be known as someone who helped 1000 people become millionaires.
JT Foxx #2–Business JT: Some may see this as bad but I see it as a winning attribute, JT Foxx business is ruthless. powerful, doesn’t forget anything, is always thinking 8 moves ahead, and will out-work, out-think, out-foxx anyone of his competitors. HE expects 110% at all times and his desire to be #1, to continuously innovate, and keep proving people wrong is unparalleled. JT Foxx business has one goal–billionaire–and it looks with my new company this actually may happen very shortly. JT business may be so tough, but is extremely loyal and will never cross that line of ethics and will never attack unless he is first attacked. He will protect the brand at all costs and if you will attack, you better make sure he doesn’t get back up because once he does, it’s over. For many years I have been coached on how to be nicer which I did, but in the process I let that guard down where people then took advantage of me. I remember when I got sued for sexual harassment by someone I never even met 1-1 in person and they offered 100K to settle and I had done nothing wrong. My lawyers told me to settle because even though I was right, the media would have a field day. I refused and fought, costing me over 350K but I won and was proven right and her extortionist father and her got nothing. It’s not about the money for me, it’s the principle. I don’t just fight for my brand today, I fight for your long-term brand equity. Many of the world’s top entrepreneurs love JT business not only cause he makes them money, but also because what he says is what he does and he always delivers and if he has done something wrong, he will always apologize and make things right. I am not perfect and make mistakes like everyone else, the only difference is that I have 8 coaches to make sure that I almost make none. The last night of events, you will be surprised that Stage JT and Business JT will never be satisfied, no matter how much success, how much money I have it is never enough. It’s that same gene I am told that the likes of Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Donald Trump, Steve Jobs, George Steinbrenner, and Larry Ellison have. It’s never good enough cause there is always more we could have done and there was always be a better way. To become successful you have to become uncomfortable, and if you are comfortable it is the beginning of the end. If you ever have the chance of being on the JT Foxx Business side, the only thing that matters is success and results and getting the job done.
JT Foxx #3–Personal JT: A side very few people have seen or even know exists. This JT is loyal, has a heart of gold, and hates disappointing people. In the end he is a prankster, always busting balls, the guy everyone wants to be his friend. This JT does not care about the money and he never has, and rather gives it to charity to make a difference in sick kids’ lives than his own. This JT spends very little and does not care about material stuff, Ferarris or 3 million dollar watches, even though he could afford them all day long. At the end to me it’s about feeling people out, it’s about getting to know them as Jack Welch said so well at Mega Partnering 8. The personal JT can’t sit still for more than a few moments and the only thing that makes his brain shut off is watching a movie at the end of the night. Watching it on an iPad on his bed and a pile of pillows on the floor so when he falls asleep, the iPad falls on the pillow. This JT is a side very few people get to see and often before he closes his eyes he hears ”JT, JT, JT can you, JT I need, JT please….” Those echos are exhausting and scary for some, for JT it’s a sign that as long as he is needed, he will continue to do what he does best, powered by your success.
Yes I am wired different depending on which JT you get, every second will never be boring and he is going to the top. The only difference is that he is taking you along with him.
Please feel free to share stories on how I have impacted your life or business. Sometimes it’s nice to know what I am fighting for and the impact I am making.
