YOU MAY BE ASKING YOURSELF, WHO IS JOE DEGANO?

The truth is, I’m nobody!  I'm just an ordinary person who stumbled upon motocross and that was the one thing that I couldn't get enough of. As an amateur racer I was another invisible rider outside of the top 10. They used to call me "Squid-DeGano" but my love of racing and all things involved in racing had me keep going.

Probably like you, I had a dream of being a professional racer, being in magazines, racing around the country, and even the world.

Looking back, I had no idea how the power of coaching would alter

HOW I SAW MYSELF, WHAT WAS POSSIBLE, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY THE BOLD ACTIONS I TOOK TO MAKE IT REAL!

HOW IT ALL STARTED

 It all unfolded for me but not in the usual way of trying harder, doing more and better. Instead, I was dwelling in new worlds and speaking in ways that forwarded my future.  Even today looking back on the things I have accomplished, most of it was beyond who I considered myself to be at the time.  

Incredible opportunities opened up to me in the form of coaches and mentors and I have the deepest gratitude for each and every one.  They showed me the distinct power of coaching. Some were motocross coaches like Professor Gary Bailey, founder of Gary Bailey Motocross Schools who coached multiple motocross champions and factory racers throughout the last 4-decades, racers like Ricky Carmichael and Cooper Webb. Gary is a master coach who trained me to be a motocross technique coach and for 6-years taught me the craft of motocross physics, how to identify new techniques and coach these latest skills to my students. 21-years later I have integrated and developed an unconventional and leading-edge approach to coaching.  I’m known as The Unreasonable Man and if you work with me you’ll discover access to high-performance in ways you could not imagine today.  


Another motocross coach was Joel MacDonald, a local expert racer from Bayville, NJ.  This is where I discovered the distinct power of coaching!  Joel made an extraordinary difference with me and I would never see myself or what is possible the same way again! He showed me the heart and soul of coaching, which was his unwavering stand, his belief in me no matter what, all while having the time of our lives!

JOEL HAD A HUGE IMPACT ON ME.

I WANTED TO BE A COACH LIKE JOEL.

 Still today I continue to study with other coaches who are world leaders of high-performance coaching, business, athletics, personal development, and human behavior.

 

Learning and mastering one’s craft is a never-ending game to which I am fully committed to.

In 2001, I created MX Coach to share all that has been shared with me. Leading with the mental aspects of racing, where I have discovered the most powerful impacts in every aspect of racing.


The focus at MX Coach has narrowed to working with professional racers and race teams and high-level amateurs who are out to be Champions.

This is the true joy in life. The being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish, little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake.

Life is no “brief candle” to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.

TO GROW, ONE TAKES ACTION.

In 2013, I established DeGano Coaching & Consulting to work with organizations to transform cultures and leadership.  I work globally with large corporations in the Fortune 100 and 500 and locally with smaller businesses in the motorcycle industry. 

 

All of my clients and students share breakthrough results, which at the time were not considered possible! At MX Coach we partner with our students and clients to realize the Unimaginable and we have a 21-year track record to back that up!   I confidently say that I have much to contribute to any racer amateur or professional.  

In my view there is no better game to play than “The Game of Your Life!”  And that’s who I get to work with, those who are willing to dream big and act boldly.  If you were to work with MX Coach, what would be the Game of your Life?  Who would you be and what would you be out to accomplish? 

 

It all starts with a conversation, but not the ordinary kind of conversation.

I look forward to hearing from you!
