Hi. I'm Jim.

Thank you for visiting my website.  Please allow me to introduce myself.  I'm a former Fortune 500 executive, who is also an author, poet and business coach.  I live in Des Moines, Iowa with my wife, Sally, and our son, Ronald.  Additionally, I have two other sons, Jim and Rick, and two grandsons, Eric and Brian.

I've authored 15 books.  My most recent publication is also my first foray into children's literature.  Everyday Virtues: Classic Tales to Read with Kids is my first father/son collaboration, co-authored by my son, Rick.  My previous publications include books on servant leadership, gratitude, and business poetry (among other topics).
