A seasoned sales and business psychology expert.

Jim, is a seasoned sales and business psychology expert. More than that, he carries a special gift. His oratory, story telling and business wisdom often captivates an entire audience.

When he speaks, you can hear a pin drop...

I have worked with hundreds of sales experts, authors and speakers during the past 26 years and have never come across someone like Jim Cathcart. When he speaks, you can hear a pin drop in the room. Why? Because his message comes from a rare universe that's filled with compelling stories, powerful analogies and infinite wisdom.

One of the sharpest and best grounded speakers and consultants that I know.

Jim Cathcart is one of the sharpest and best grounded speakers and consultants that I know. He has a special knack for helping others figure out how to succeed when they are facing challenges and uncertainty. His coining of "The Acorn Principle" is a landmark concept in the field of business and personal development.
