Jason Ballard's Elite Performance Coaching roots began in Middle School in his home state of Wisconsin where here goal was to become a D1 Student-Athlete. Eventually, Jason’s legs lead him to being Track Athlete at the University of Miami. He graduated Cum Laude from the School of Business and his experience of having to maximize his time and productivity as a student-athlete built an extremely great foundation for his future success.
After college, he went to work at AK Capital LLC, a New York based Broker/Dealer and was placed on the Mortgage-Backed Securities Trading Desk. In his 17-year career he helped create over $1 Billion in new deals. Being on a Wall Street trading desk where split second decisions and time maximization are the difference between making money and losing money, his efficiency and productivity were honed. In addition, long and exhausting days on a capital markets trading floor taught him not only how to maximize his energy, but how to recover properly from it.
Currently, Jason and his wife Leanne reside in Jupiter, FL. Each day they tackle the challenge of managing both of their careers while raising their two kids Emily and Blake. Leanne works on a Global Marketing team for a Fortune Top 50 Healthcare Company. Outside of work, he enjoys balancing his exercise routine, playing golf, coaching numerous youth sports teams, and being an active member of his church in many leadership roles.
