The Model FA

Mar 30, 2021

David Meltzer is a business coach, sports & technology executive, and founder of the global sports and entertainment agency, Sports 1 Marketing. He is a three-time international bestselling author, the executive producer of Entrepreneur’s #1 digital business show, Elevator Pitch, and a Top 100 Business coach. He is also the former CEO of Leigh Steinberg Sports and Entertainment, the firm that inspired the movie, Jerry Maguire. But beyond his roles as founder and executive, David’s mission is to serve humanity by empowering one billion people to be happy. This is a mission he realizes by creating platforms to help educate and mentor people from all walks of life - from C-Suite executives to college students. To this end, David has created David Meltzer Enterprises, through which he also facilitates free weekly training sessions, as well as The Playbook Podcast, where he shares his insights on achieving success in life and business.


David joins me today to discuss the role gratitude plays in creating lasting abundance and happiness in our lives. He reveals the underlying lessons of gratitude and the factors that fuel consistency. He explains what inspired his maxim, “make a lot of money, help a lot of people, and have a lot of fun!” and describes what it was like to live a life of scarcity early on in his career. He also discusses how focusing on lack hinders us from getting what we want in life, emphasizes how asking for what we want can help direct us toward success, and underscores our connection with infinite abundance.


“To enjoy the consistent and persistent pursuit of your potential, you have to change your perspective through gratitude. Define the light, the love, and the lesson that you have.” - David Meltzer
