    #TUClassic: Failures Lead to Success with Matt Prater

    Today on the show we’re talking with Arizona Cardinals kicker, Matt Prater. Matt came from a small town in Florida just outside of Fort Meyers, playing sports with his brother. Prater was kicking 60 yard field goals in his senior year of high school, at which time he entered a kicking camp and eventually got on a college team.

    When Prater entered the NFL, he still had a lot to learn, he missed a couple of field goals in his first game, and his team went on to lose that game. Prater felt ashamed and embarrassed, and he used that to improve his game eventually landing a starting position on the Denver Broncos.

    Highlights:


    Where Matt grew up

    The decision to kick for football, and not soccer

    His father instilling a tough work ethic

    Going undrafted in the NFL

Very fun with a new perspective to business and life.

Jayson has an amazing positive energy that you can feel through his episodes. Very fun with a new perspective to business and life.

cbeltnym15 ,

Huge fan

Jayson knows what he’s talking about! Listen in if you want each episode to provide a step in the ladder of success!

Dr.Brule ,

He’s a scam

Not sure why people are listening to him. His sales team must be trained to way over sell and under deliver! It’s been a year now and we still don’t have permission to operate our $100,000 power home solar system. Jason is a modern snake oil salesman and has no reason to get access to this type of platform. It’s all nuts to me. We honestly want our system to work as it was sold to us. Their customer service is nothing short of a nightmare. Can’t wait for the 20/20 or Netflix special…i just hope we and others get taken care of one way or the other, because it’s ruining many of us financially and it was sold to us all to save money. Sad sad sad.
