Jesse Puata was able to streamline multiple projects into a systemized, scale-able model that is enriching lives and transforming the MMA industry.
Jesse describes himself as a ‘tin arse’ (lol!)..always managing to pull off improbable feats from an early age. He’d already experienced much success including a martial arts world title and enjoyed a stable 6 figure salary.
But as he got older and responsibilities became more complex and weightier, maintaining the winning edge through sheer hard work and determination was starting to show itself to be ineffective.
Chaotic work-flow, balancing existing passion projects and bringing new ones into being was leaving Jesse mentally and physically tired.
Still…he felt he was only just getting started and had so much yet to create and contribute!
He was ready to up-level.
Jesse and I first met to talk about his hopes and dreams and what things were like for him in the moment back in October 2018.
I learned that he had a passion to portray Martial Arts in a much more positive light within the community and also provide real, financial pathways for fighters to support and develop themselves within New Zealand and abroad.
He was also developing and growing a line of branded apparel, holding down a full-time job, driving an exciting life-skills centre development while also being a committed husband and father.
He told me he wanted to open an MMA studio in downtown New Plymouth.
After identifying a few unhelpful patterns, I was excited to invite Jesse to take part in a pilot program which was part transformational mindset work and part effectiveness training. It was called the “Magnetic Mind”.
We aligned his mind to the identity of the person who achieved his goals and systematically created a precise road map of action that would bring his dreams to reality.
We then met regularly to discuss progress and unearth needed resources or move through any blocks.
Jesse was soon operating on entirely new level, experiencing flow and productivity like never before!
Within 6 months the New Plymouth MMA studio was opened and operational!
Together we also created the foundations for scale via e-commerce of his apparel income stream and worked on creating more fulfillment within his family life.
Jesse invited his wife,
, to participate in the program and her self-transformation has been a joy to witness. Although Jesse and Marina’s marriage was already in good stead, their relationship and obvious delight in each other has sky-rocketed!
Now 12 months down the track the
New Plymouth MMA Studio
studio is pumping with plans in place to create more space for even more students.
Jesse has an e-commerce website created with much of the infrastructure and systems in place to enable scale (when he’s ready to hit that green light).
The life skills centre is poised to move into the new decade as a more structured and stable entity that can attract better funding and have more impact.
And Marina shines as a beacon of beauty and power, inspiring all those around her!
I’d like to take this moment to publicly thank and congratulate, Jesse and Marina!
You’ve been and are stellar clients and it’s a true honour to serve.
Your dedication and investment into our time together has paid off for us both.
