In 2011, Jim wrote and published his first book, “seeds of Intent”, which became an Amazon “ Best Seller” in November of that year. He wrote this book for the person who has a desire to live life more fully while experiencing less worry, fear and/or struggle. Throughout the book, he shares examples of his own struggles and learnings from those struggles to help the readers better understand their lives are in essence their instruments of learning, and that they are not their past. The book has had many powerful reviews, including one from Kirkus Review, known as the world’s toughest book critic. While this book has been impacting 100’s of lives, Jim’s personal drive for continuous growth has resulted in the publishing of the 4th edition of “seeds of Intent” in 2015 which is more reader friendly as it serves as a unique tool contributing to a person’s transition into the life he or she is meant to live.
While Jim’s qualifications and skills as a personal and professional development facilitator for business owners, executives and workforce talent are well documented, he is also a skilled seminar and workshop facilitator as well as a speaker for company and association conferences. In addition, he has hosted an international talk radio broadcast on the VoiceAmerica Business channel that was heard throughout the U.S., Canada and Eastern Europe.
Jim received his undergraduate degree from Kent State University with post-graduate studies at The Harvard Business School and The American College. He has also served on various Boards of Directors, as well as an Adjunct Professor for the University of Iowa and the University of North Carolina Business Schools.
