Jim Woods | Leadership Speaker

Mr. Woods is a true rags to riches story. Following his divorce he lived in his car for several months. Eating bean burritos while sleeping near a California beach, he was determined to get his life back. But this time, on his terms. Ever persistent Jim mapped out his life's goals. How? Mr. Woods changed his self limiting beliefs and took massive action.

Since then he returned to college earning two degrees and taught fifth grade math and science. Then as a professor at two universities. To think it all started with a plan.
