Jim is a world expert in speed-reading, memory improvement, and optimal brain performance.
Jim was known as the “boy with the broken brain”. A childhood head injury at age five left him struggling in school. For a while, he even believed he could never be as good as other kids when it came to learning.
He was slow and barely survived school, but never stopped hoping for better. He often talk about “superhero brains” and “superpowers” when he referred to life-long learners and learning.
He loved superheroes as a kid – and the comic books saved him when conventional education couldn’t. Comic books taught him how to read…and they also kept his dreams alive that one day he, too, would find his inner superpower.
As the years wore on, he undertook a journey to learn about his brain – why it was broken and what he could do to fix it. That journey led him to discovering different learning habits, including accelerated learning systems and tactics.
He discovered that, no matter the circumstances, we can rebuild our brains. And after working on himself, he realized his brain was not broken…it just needed a better owner’s manual. This shattered his own limiting beliefs – and over time, it became his passion to help others do the same.
Jim spent the last 25 years helping people like himself improve their memory, learn to speed-read, increase their decision-making skills, and unleash their superbrains.
Throughout his career, he shared these same techniques with students at universities like NYU, Harvard, Columbia, Stanford, and Singularity. He also worked closely with companies like Nike and GE and Zappos to help their executives and employees get the most out of work and life. Even companies like SpaceX and Virgin, owned by billionaire geniuses like Richard Branson and Elon Musk, have trained with him.
In a world of spaceships and supercomputers, our education system still uses methods that are as old, and as ineffective, as the horse and buggy. Jim believes that the techniques he has developed over the years on how to learn – not just what to learn – should’ve been taught to us as schoolchildren. Luckily, it’s never too late to learn these skills!
