Motivated by what he saw as one of the most tragic challenges of modern life--the disconnection of busy entrepreneurs from their families--Jim developed the Family Board Meeting process to help business owners bridge the gaps between themselves and their loved ones.
Since then, both Jim's message and his book, the Amazon best-seller "The Family Board Meeting," have spread around the globe. Often called "Crazy Glue" for families, Jim's popular and simple frameworks now reach thousands of parents worldwide, helping them feel more connected with their kids, be happier at home and leave a lasting legacy.
Jim is the founder of 18 Summers, which specializes in live events, workshops and private consulting for organizations looking to strengthen their family lives while still succeeding in business.
He's an in-demand public speaker, and owns a private real estate company that has done more than $200 million in transactions.
Jim is an avid surfer and enjoys traveling with family and friends, especially his beautiful wife Jamie and their four children, Alden, Leland, Magnolia, and Sampson.
His greatest adventure to date? Donating a kidney to the best guy on the planet, his father.

Some of Our Favorites
There is so much rich description of a now-vanished but still relevant world, that the listener walks away more educated (while also a little romanced).
This listen will make you change the way you think about everything.
Think Steve Jobs was a tough boss?
Lisa Brennan-Jobs' gorgeous memoir gave me goosebumps as she described what it’s like to love and seek approval from one of the world’s most notoriously withholding personalities.
Historical fiction at its best
I wish I could write something as genius as this story. It’s a long one, and it’s a deep dive, but it is so masterfully crafted and engrossing that it goes by a lot quicker than you’d think.
