Jim Rohn has impacted me and my life more than anyone except for Zig Ziglar.
I sold tickets to seminars featuring Jim when I was in my early 20's and working for Success Source in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Organo Gold Co-Founder and Global Master Distributor, Shane Morand, also worked for Success Source at the time and is a big fan.
I also introduced Jim to a live audience of about 1200 people at the Ottawa Congress Centre.
Because I stand 5'1", and I referred to my nickname, too tall, when Jim took the stage he said "That was the shortest introduction I have ever had". I thought it was a great line and so did the audience.
Jim's wisdom will change you for the better as it has already done for millions of people around the world for a long time.
Born to an Idaho farming family in the mid-1900s, Jim was ingrained with a work ethic that has served him well throughout his life.
At 25, he met his mentor Earl Shoaff. And over the next six years he made his first fortune, yet didn't get into speaking until he moved to Beverly Hills, California, when a friend at the Rotary Club asked him to tell his success story, which Rohn titled "Idaho Farm Boy Makes It to Beverly Hills."
Jim Rohn focused on the fundamentals of human behavior that most affect personal and business performance. His is the standard to which those who seek to teach and inspire others are compared.
He possessed the unique ability to bring extraordinary insights to ordinary principles and events, and the combination of his substance and style captures the imagination of those who hear or read his words.
He shared his message with more than 6,000 audiences and over 5 million people all over the world.
He received numerous industry awards including the coveted National Speakers Association CPAE Award and the Master of Influence Award.
Jim's philosophies and influence continue to have worldwide impact.
