Hi everyone, Jared Tendler here. I was a collegiate All-American golfer who tried qualifying for the 1997 US Open golf championships and choked – missing a playoff by 1 shot to the second stage of qualifying. That failure drove me to find answers that eventually turned into a career.
I have a master’s degree in counseling psychology, and started coaching golfers in 2005, before turning to poker, trading, esports and business. At this point, I've worked with over 200 institutional and individual traders. Over a thousand poker players, including some of the best players in the game. I have a few golf clients on the PGA and Korn Ferry Tour. I was the head of sport psychology for Team Liquid, the largest esports organization in the world, for 4 years and was a key factor in several major championships across different games. I've worked with entrepreneurs, sports betters, lawyers, sales professionals and even a radiologist.
I’ve written three books: The Mental Game of Poker 1 & 2, and most recently The Mental Game of Trading, which lays out a system for trading psychology. My work isn't about simply providing advice or tips - I've developed an actual system that you can learn and use every day to correct your most costly performance errors. There’s no magic to fixing problems with greed, fear, anger, confidence and discipline. You need practical steps to solve them, rather than just trying to manage, control or put a band aid on the problem.
Full disclosure - I’m not a trader, nor a poker player or esports professional. But a racecar driver doesn’t need a mechanic that can drive as well as they do. They need someone who understand the conditions of competition, how to get the car ready to perform, and how to analyze problems and ensure they’ll hold up in critical moments in the race. I do that for clients across multiple industries. The central problems are the same, the difference is in how they show up, and how my system is applied given the unique nature of the competition.
I'm happy to answer any questions about how emotions affect performance, emotional control, greed, FOMO, fear, anger/tilt, confidence, discipline, routines, mental endurance, mental strength, dealing with variance, distractions, laziness, the zone, focus, etc. There’s a lot to talk about. Let’s go!
