Swing Hard, In Case You Hit It with Jesse Cole

January 31, 2023

Swing Hard, In Case You Hit It with Jesse Cole

If you are a baseball fan and have never seen a coach breakdancing in the middle of a game, an umpire dancing before calling a play, or a male cheerleading team, you don’t know the Savannah Bananas. And that, my friend, means you are missing a lot. 

In this episode, I’m delighted to welcome Jesse Cole, Founder of Fans First Entertainment and owner and operator of the Savannah Bananas. Jesse is also the author of “Fans first” and “Find your yellow tux,” “Banana Ball,” and a Keynote Speaker who dedicated most of his life to creating extraordinary and unique experiences for the fans. 

Throughout our conversation, we talk about Jesse’s commitment to creating memorable experiences every time the Bananas get in the pitch and the idea of treating the Savannah Bananas presentations as a spectacle that will never be completed. Jesse shared details of how they keep their shows fresh and entertaining, the attractions that didn’t work very well, and his constantly exploring and trying new things mindset. 

Plus, Jesse talks about his mentors, what to expect from the Bananas in the future, and so much more.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Fans first, entertainment always. Jesse talks about Fans First Entertainment’s mantra (2:52)
  • About Jesse’s “obsession” with creating unique experiences (6:33)
  • Jesse talks about the importance and benefits of having a clear vision (11:45)
  • How to turn an idea into the fuel for your entire business (15:52)
  • Work your idea muscle every day (21:21)

Never would have thought a podcast by an auto repair shop would have such useful information for a life coach! Kim is open, unconventional and totally easy to listen to. Loved her background story and this non-auto-centered woman can’t wait to hear more!
