“If you are the smartest guy in the room, you’re in the wrong room”- Jim Shorkey
Think and Grow Rich with Jim Shorkey
This episode was a lot of fun.
How it happened.
I have a good friend and mentor named Steve Gardiner who I meet with pretty consistently for coffee to discuss life/tactics etc. (I actually had him on the podcast for episode 6 but the audio quality was poor and we pulled it, Still gotta record a new one with him!) He mentioned in passing one day that he knew Jim Shorkey and said he would be a great guy for the podcast. I knew the name from car commercials and was instantly interested.
So a few months passed and Steve and I met up for coffee again and he asked how he could help with the podcast. I said, “Could you link me up with Jim Shorkey?” Steve texted him that next minute and Jim was in. We later talked on the phone and scheduled it for the next week.
Before our coffee meeting was over, Steve gave me a little background info and told me Jim read “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill over 130 times! I was thinking “Damn, that’s awesome.” And like I said, I knew the name “Jim Shorkey” by seeing/hearing car commercials but when I found out that nugget of info I thought “Man, this podcast will be interesting and I’m going to learn a lot.”
I did and the conversation exceeded my expectations. So hear you go- episode 29 with, Jim Shorkey, former owner of the Jim Shorkey Family Auto Group. Hope you guys enjoy!
