Game-Time Decision Making is the playbook for positioning yourself (and those around you) for success. Prepare yourself, no matter the odds

When the pressure is on, great leaders remain confident, guiding their teams to success.

David Meltzer, Founder at David Meltzer Enterprises, Co-founder of Sports 1 Marketing and a consultant to Fortune 100 executives and startup CEOS, will help you learn to make the right decision in the toughest of situations, no matter the odds.

Using concepts from his latest book, Game-Time Decision Making: High Scoring Business Strategies from the Biggest Names in Sports, David will help you create and utilize the best strategies for leading your company through times of change. A three-time international best-selling author, a Top 100 Business Coach, the executive producer of Entrepreneur ’s #1 digital business show, Elevator Pitch, and host of the top entrepreneur podcast, The Playbook, David is the former CEO of the Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment agency, the inspiration for the movie Jerry Maguire. He will motivate founders to make the quick, accurate calls needed to dominate the industry.

You’ll learn:

  • How to build a positive mindset that will overwhelm the competition
  • Why failures can help you never make the same mistake twice
  • Ways to create offensive and defensive strategies for branding and marketing
  • How to put together an all-pro team with diverse skillsets

David will be introduced by Lifetime member Kevin Shrock (May’17 Cohort), founder at WhichDocs, a crowd-sourced database that expedites the process of getting a patient to the right medical provider.

If you don't have a cohort group in something like Founders Network that you can develop long-term relationships with and discuss the same topics that come up with people that you already know, you're probably missing out on something very important.

David Plonsky

The number one advantage is the law of compound interest. The longer you stay in a very high-quality network the strong and more authentic relationships you build.

Chaitanya Vaidya

We know each other's business and we know each other's struggles. Having a personal relationship with other founders that is completely confidential and completely authentic gives you a lot of great advice.

Doug Lessing

FN manages my network for me by connecting me with other founders in my specific industry sector. I've been able to explore business development opportunities, partnerships, etc.

Becky Splitt

We just saw the first Mexican unicorn come to life this same week which is a fantastic idea. Being part of the Founders Network makes a lot of sense. We see that the Mexico City chapter is growing substantially.

Max Linares

There's a lot of great stuff going on even now in San Francisco. I've found Founders Network has been a great resource for me and for all of the founders I know during these tough times.

Jarie Bolander

It allowed me to meet people who had done this before that had the experience. I was able to explain an issue very briefly and they were able to give me a very detailed response on how they addressed it.

Terence Finn

I've used the platform to discover advice, connections, resources, discounts, on important services, connections to investors, and practice on how to pitch. The kind of conversations you can't get anywhere else on youtube or google searches.

Alexandra Greenhill

I see Founders Network as one of those necessary resources in the Chicagoland area.

Jason Jacobsohn

The Black Founders initiative allows me to shape this program where we can inspire, engage, and support Black Founders.
