Jay Abraham

As founder and CEO of The Abraham Group, Inc. (Los Angeles, California), Jay has spent his entire career solving complex problems and fixing underperforming businesses. He has significantly increased the bottom lines of over 10,000 clients in more than 1,000 industries, and over 7,200 sub industries, worldwide. Jay has dealt with virtually every type of business scenario and issue. He has studied, and solved, almost every type of business question, challenge and opportunity.


Jay has an uncanny ability to increase business income, wealth and success by looking at situations from totally different paradigms. He uncovers hidden assets, overlooked opportunities, underperforming activities, and undervalued possibilities unseen by his clients. This skill set has captured the attention and respect of CEOs, best-selling authors, entrepreneurs and marketing experts, worldwide. Jay’s clients range from business royalty to small business owners. But they all have one thing in common – virtually all of them have profited greatly from Jay’s expertise. Many of his ideas and strategies have led to millions of dollars of increased profits for his diverse clients.

Jay has identified the patterns that limit and restrict business growth. He is a unique industry leader who shows clients that most industries only know (and only use) one particular marketing approach. He teaches that there may be dozens of more effective and more profitable strategies (with far lower risk), and options, available to them. Jay shows his clients how to take different success concepts from different industries and adopt them to their specific businesses. This gives Jay’s clients a powerful advantage over their competition.

Jay has been acknowledged as a unique and distinctive authority in the fields of preeminence, exponential business growth, performance enhancement, risk reduction, and the maximizing and multiplying of business performance assets. He has been featured thrice in Investors Business Daily – on the front page, and twice in the Leaders & Success section (“Jay knows how to maximize results with minimum effort”). Forbes Magazine called him “The Real Thing” and listed Jay as one of the Top 5 Executive Coaches in the country (“Jay’s specialty is turning corporate under-performers into marketing and sales whizzes”).

Additionally, Jay has been featured in USA Today, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, National Underwriter, Entrepreneur Magazine, Huffington Post, Success Magazine, Inc. Magazine, and many other publications.

Jay sees overlooked opportunities, hidden assets (both tangible and intangible), and underperforming areas of a business that no one else typically recognizes. He is renowned for finding significant profits where no one else can. His depth and breadth of empirical experience has facilitated exceptional judgment, communication, and collaboration skills.

These are THE vitally essential traits necessary to establish, lead and effectively contribute to any organization and any extensive collaborative growth initiative. They are the prime abilities required to add new life and strategic vision to a company that is stuck, struggling, or one that needs to redefine or better distinguish itself in the marketplace. Surprisingly large numbers of prosperous companies are actually “successfully stuck,” content with above-market performance when order of magnitude/higher profit performance is frequently possible.

Jay is considered one of the world’s foremost nonlinear strategic/critical thinkers in the areas of revenue model generation, business model generation, strategic restructuring, as well as marketing makeovers of every kind. His principles can be the difference between mediocrity and a business that generates millions of dollars in additional revenue.

Jay has an estimated 100,000+ individual business success stories from his sold-out seminars around the world. Many of the world’s preeminent trainers, consultants, and entrepreneurial icons have sought out Jay’s advice and counsel in growing their organizations. He has sold-out seminars in China, Singapore, Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai, London, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Bali, Sydney, Melbourne, Canada, Vietnam, and Italy – in addition to conducting over 100 programs in the US.

As a proven business leader, innovator, and “performance maximizer” with enormous energy and vision, Jay has demonstrated the critical ability to stimulate true breakthrough thinking and execution throughout large and small organizations. His “four vital areas of performance enhancement” include Strategy, Innovation, Marketing, and Management. He understands how to focus on the Upside Leverage within an organization, while effectively controlling and minimizing downside risk. Jay has a very rare ability to understand the implications, correlations, applications, opportunities, and vulnerabilities in almost any given situation from a “Cat Scan” perspective. He’s identified over 50 internal revenue system impact points that few businesses maximize.

His forte, which is the ability to think “way outside the box” while also thinking “way inside the box”, is to prepare for multiple potential scenarios. This has enabled him to find (and successfully implement) creative, preemptive solutions to very complex problems in order to generate high-performance results. He has successfully established beneficial relationships with key strategic partners, and has developed cardinal business strategies for many companies. These organizations boast, with Jay’s counsel, that their objectives have been consistently met and/or exceeded.

Jay has been instrumental in raising performance, even while working in adverse business environments. Investors Business Daily probably said it best – “he knows how to get maximum results from minimal efforts”. He is a master of highly-revealing Socratic interviewing. They went on to say “he directs questions like Patton directed tanks”, in one of three major stories they ran.

He has spawned an entire generation of marketing consultants and experts who credit him as their primary mentor as a result of his Protégé and Consultant Training programs.

Jay’s life’s work has been dedicated to growing businesses, advancing careers, and multiplying bottom lines exponentially. He believes strongly in ethical business practices and is a champion for anyone who wants to build their own business, advance their career, increase their personal wealth, and add to their personal growth.
