About Me

Hello, I am Jerry Gaura.

I'm a passionate family guy, creator, coach, therapist and founder of an online media co. focused on inspiring people to go big. Basically, I'm always busy trying to help people unleash new levels of their amazing.

Where does my mission come from?...

Well, I've always been driven to go deeper. This resulted in some interesting adventures, and some not-so-interesting misadventures. For instance, I've worked with Killer Whales, guided lost young men in the wilderness, and survived the real but temporary humiliation of washing out of the US Navy SEALS. But I've also painted houses, catered to celebrities, wrote financial news copy, and cold-called people like heck during their family dinner times.

The biggest and best adventure to date arrived when I became the father of a wonderful boy with Down Syndrome named Gus. 

Gus is four years old and takes the cake at this whole amazing thing. Actually, both him and his mother do.  Playing dad to Gus was a big factor in my decision to launch a brand dedicated to OVERCOMERS. 

What's an Overcomer?...

These are folks that have the experiences and tools to show you that the impossible is possible.  They've faced the seemingly impossible situations and came out better because of it. They have the hard hard data, not just fuzzy anecdotes or wishful thinking. And they're resilient enough to brush off the judgement and lack of imagination of others.

The goal is to point you back to your own inner resources. Greatness is available, if you can muster the courage to create the experiences needed to get there.  I hope by hearing these stories you'll begin to let go of the stories you no longer need running your life. 

So there you go. The story behind my mission to create a brand for OVERCOMERS.  As the brand grows, I aim to support OVERCOMERS in the community through special projects and programs! Sign up for the newsletter if you want to learn more about those.

If you'd like to learn more about me,  a good place to start is THE EPISODE OF TAKE HOME STORIES TITLED "FAILING ON PURPOSE"


Being a media geek in general, I've run into an obvious truth. People learn better when entertained! So I try going the extra mile to create content that is fresh, real, useful, and fun. My goal is to leave you feeling rewarded for the time you've invested here, as both you and I know you can't get it back!

I also strive to take you deeper in these interviews and stories. As a therapist with good time under my belt, I believe I have skills to deep dive the mindsets behind the stories.  If you listen, you'll hear I'm willing to challenge and have fun with the leaders, achievers, and creators I interview. I believe real connection and good questions can inspire a process that's much more important than an answer. And I believe letting you into that process is the most important thing I can do for you.

So I guess that’s it.  I hope it helped clarify a few things and inspired you to have a look.

So, dive in.  Take what’s useful and leave what's not.  And please do share what you enjoy! Giving back helps to build great communities. And I aim to do my part for the greater good.

Stay great,
