A Message From Jim

Hi my name is Jim and as a professional speaker, I have been delivering presentations on retirement, investing and personal finance for the past 20 years. I’ve made it my mission to help people make better financial decisions through not only my presentations but also my syndicated column, best selling books and personal consultations.

I get a thrill when I walk on stage in front of people. I love educating, entertaining and inspiring my audiences to a better life. There’s no better feeling though, than when you really connect with your audience. I think the best way to connect with your audience is to speak from the heart and use the ancient art of storytelling to inspire them to action. Telling stories that people can relate to is a form of communication that I am really passionate about.

It really touches me when people come up and give me hugs and handshakes and tell me how great the session was. It’s even better when I get emails or letters long after the presentation from participants who have taken the information and improved their lives because of me. Quite frankly, that’s what I strive for each and every time I get up on stage.

As a professional speaker, my specialty is presentations on retirement, wealth and personal finance. I’ve got presentations for 1 hour keynotes to 3 full day workshops. Whatever your needs are, let me know. I’ll work very hard not to disappoint.
