My Take On Prosperity
For me, it starts with aspirations. Growing up in the housing projects near downtown Memphis, my dream was to graduate from high school. (Oh yea, I had high aspirations?) And guess what? I made it! But college was out of the question. I had no resources and no family encouragement. My mother's prayer for me was to stay off drugs and out of jail. Her prayer was answered.
Then, as a senior in high school it all changed. My home room teacher told me that I was "college material." And I believed her! So, my aspirations changed. I won a 2-year academic scholarship. In college, during my senior year, my aspirations changed again. I won a full fellowship to Cornell University Graduate School of Business. By the age of 35, I was a commercial bank president, stockholder and board member. Aspirations are the foundation of prosperity. In my life, it all started with aspirations.
I believe that aspirations are the foundation of vision. And vision (imagination in a picture frame) is a key element of prosperity. So, I created JimVisions to serve those who struggle to get to that place they really and truly want to be in their careers. Now, based on my 40-year, 3-phase management career in Memphis, St. Louis, and Atlanta, I know that this lack of vision is a major challenge for thousands of others. Perhaps you are one of them. If so, I invite you to consider the VisionMaster Program.
You already have natural talents and interests. You already have aspirations. And you have imagination. Your potential is unlimited. I believe that about you, even though I may not know you.
You were born for a specific purpose, and you have a specific mission to accomplish. But, as you well know, life has many distractions. They come disguised in many forms everyday. Do not be tricked, fooled, bamboozled, hoodwinked or deceived. You can find your purpose, and the pathway that takes you there. This pathway will bring you true joy and fulfillment. My role is to help you find your path, the path you were born to take, the path that leads to your prosperity, to the lifestyle that you enjoy. I am your prosperity strategist.
