Jim Cathcart’s Key Accomplishments Include . . .

A business strategist, psychological researcher and philosopher at heart, Jim Cathcart is also a down to earth regular guy.

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.

Today he is listed in the professional Speaker Hall of Fame, is a recipient of the prestigious Golden Gavel Award (along with Earl Nightingale, 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. In 2014 he was listed as one of The Top 50 Sales Influencers by Top Sales World magazine.

In 2008 he was inducted as one of the “Legends of the Speaking Profession.” And in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014 he was selected as one of the Top 5 Sales & Customer Service Speakers by in an online survey of over 13,000 leaders. Now, he adds the Sales & Marketing Hall of Fame to his accolades!

In his personal time he plays Rock & Roll guitar in clubs, rides his motorcycle on the twistiest roads he can find and runs the trails of the mountains near his home at least twice each week. He’s a proud parent and grandparent and an active civic leader. He serves as an advisor to the School of Management at California Lutheran University and High Point University.
