The Builder Nuggets Podcast

Nov 1, 2022

**Trigger Warning** This piece briefly discusses suicide and suicidal ideation, and some people might find it disturbing. If you or someone you know is suicidal, please, contact your physician, go to your local ER, or call the suicide prevention hotline in your country. More resources are available below.


If you're trying to get from Point A to Point B you need a map and a compass. If Point A is where you are now in your career, your relationships, and your happiness and Point B is where you want to be, then a Coach and Leadership Trainer are the map and compass you need to help you get from one to the other. Our guest today coaches others on how to live life on the offense. Jay Tiegs has traveled his own bumpy road, and through investing in his personal development he's learned to evolve and grow into the coach he is today. Fundamental change starts by fundamentally changing everything around you. The first step is often investing in yourself.
