Passion, energy, and work ethic are common words that come to mind when people talk about Taylor Jannsen. Immediately following his collegiate basketball career in 2011, Taylor started PerformanceMax Basketball Training. Through his business he continues to have the opportunity to teach, mentor, and serve numerous young athletes across the country ranging from 3rd grade to the NCAA D1 level. Throughout his playing and coaching experiences, Taylor has gained infinite wisdom in motivation, discipline, handling adversity, and building organizational culture. In early 2015, Taylor was diagnosed with testicular cancer and would later undergo chemotherapy treatments. He recalls this time period as one in which he began to realize the influence he was having on the players and communities that he worked with. It was also during this time that he began to formulate ideas to author his first book, Leave Better Than Found. Today, Taylor not only brings his story, perspective, and passion to the basketball court, but also to any organization, team, or individual looking to transform themselves.
