Someone recently said, "Jim Cathcart is what "Fonzie" (of Happy Days) would have been if he'd gone to business school." Jim was an insurance agent for many years, an Army officer and a bill collector who, while in his twenties, had to repossess log trucks in the mountains of northern Arkansas. From this varied background he decided in 1972 to become an authority on the subject of motivation and through decades of dedication, study and hard work, he made it happen.
After hearing Earl Nightingale on the radio one day in 1972, Jim was inspired to change his life. While working as a government clerk in the Housing Authority he determined to learn psychology and master the process of self-improvement. Through years of fanatical dedication to this quest he learned new skills, became a certified trainer for a variety of programs, read stacks of books, attended countless seminars and volunteered thousands of hours to civic organizations. In this process he moved from clerk, to manager, to sales person, to leader, to trainer, to author and professional speaker.
In 2012 he was inducted into the Sales & Marketing Hall of Fame at a ceremony in London due to the influence of his concept and book "Relationship Selling™". He also is listed in the professional Speaker Hall of Fame, a recipient of the prestigious Golden Gavel Award (along with Earl Nightingale, Tony Robbins, Art Linkletter, Zig Ziglar and many others), has been the president of the National Speakers Association and received the Cavett Award for a lifetime of service. He has authored 16 books and scores of recorded programs.
