Vincent Duffy

Vincent Duffy is an Entrepreneur + Mental Skills Advisor. He is the founder & creative partner of MetaNu. Vincent is the creator of MetaNu.’s exclusive programs, M.E. Analytics and Culture Calculator.

Vincent made it his main goal in life to help individuals become the best they can be. He began his journey at the age of 23 by developing a program that takes a positive proactive approach by combining Mental Wellness x Performance Psychology.

Vincent received a handful of scholarships to play collegiate baseball. In his senior year of high school, he suffered a terrible knee injury (ACL) that negatively affected his college recruiting. Vincent decided to accept a baseball scholarship from Clarion University of Pennsylvania. During his freshman year at Clarion, he developed the throwing “YIPS” which resulted in a redshirt season. He worked with a sports psychologist during the off-season, but the “YIPS” and ACL injury were too much for the coaching staff to believe in him. Vincent’s baseball career ended after his sophomore year, and a new era of life began.

After this difficult time in his life, Vincent decided he knew exactly what he wanted to pursue, the field of Psychology. Previous experiences guided his interest in Sports Psychology & Mental Health Counseling. Vincent aimed to help as many people as he could gain a competitive edge, overcome struggles, & navigate complex times. His purpose was for others to never feel alone as he once did.

Over the past six years, Vincent has worked with numerous individuals from all walks of life. The list includes professional athletes (NFL, NBA, MLB, CFL), corporate & healthcare professionals, student-athletes, business groups, and sports teams. He has expanded the program over the past four years to help mentally prepare college athletes for the NFL Draft through his Draft Prep Program.

Overall, Vincent loves to help individuals thrive and succeed on their journey through life! “Become the best you, you can be!”
