Jay is an associate on the Business Development and Product Partnerships team at LinkedIn. We connected through Shantel Buford, and he has his own blog and newsletter about self-care, mindfulness, and is an extremely compassionate person. We really connected when we first spoke, and I’m glad we crossed paves. He is also participating in the Redefining Masculinity Book Program I’m running with a bunch of other people. I enjoyed our conversation about creating spaces where men can speak openly about their feelings and insecurities.
Reach out to him below if you would like to connect to chat with more about anything at all.
My main takeaways from this Podcast conversation is
- Practice having real authentic conversations and bringing your true self to work.
- Practice creating safe spaces where people can truly be able to speak their truths and heal from those experiences
- Don’t be afraid to reach out to mentors even if you think they are too busy to get back to you.
- Meditation practices allow you to process emotions
- Building deep relationships and prioritizing relationships.

His Podcast: about the Model Minority myth and how it impacts the Asian-American Identity
Purpose: I create an empowering context for curious and hungry people looking for fulfillment, experiences, and creativity. We do this by developing their growth mindset, introducing self-love, and powerful group experiences. It results in people with strong boundaries, resilient mental health, and practical life skills
People leave with the ability to land their dream job, have autonomy and flexibility with their lifestyle, travel the world, and create from their heart and soul.
Davidson was once broke, insecure, low-confidence, and frustrated by doing all the wrong activities. Addicted to drugs, validation, and wallowing in self-pity. No relationship to family, and at the mercy of other people’s suggestions and opinions.
It was hell.
After spending $100k hiring different coaches, traveling the world doing workshops around the world, reading>1000 books, and through curiosity, have created the most effective system to remove people from that situation. My life’s work is to bring joy and abundance to people who as on a similar path as I was and bring back the joy and abundance of their life.
Through shared experiences and storytelling, I inspire and model behaviors that lead to a richer, more fulfilled life full of joy, experiences, passion, and ecstasy from the richness of relationships and being able to experience the depths of the human experience.
