Jim Connelly Author and Key Note Speaker for the Napoleon Hill Foundation has been selected as the VIP speaker at the Speak Like a Champion Tour to be held at the University of Notre Dame July 31 through August 2, 2017.
Jim is one of 15 TOP speakers selected for this Epic business event.
Jim Connelly’s career began as a young boy living in the projects of a small factory town in Western Pennsylvania.
A street fighter with a bad attitude, Connelly negotiated with a judge to leave his home town in lieu of being incarcerated.
With $100 in his pocket he talked a friend in driving him to California.
Applying for and landing a job as a room clerk at the Regency Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, within 6 years, he had worked himself up to become the
General Manager of this $100 million property, a position he held for ten years.
Exploring other business opportunities, Connelly was invited by the chairman of Shearson Lehman to join the Wall Street Investment Banking firm. He became the first non-college graduate accepted into the firm’s management program and graduated from the New York Institute of Finance in the top ten percent of his class.
At the request of the President, Connelly facilitated Leadership Goal Setting for the California Governor’s Conference and the President’s Committee for Employment of People with Disabilities held at Stanford University.
He went on to start many successful businesses and is a consummate entrepreneur – having lived his entire life “outside the box”..
Even with all his success, the accomplishment he is most proud of is the 25-year journey to assist a young woman, who after a serious accident came back from the brink of death to live independently today.
Lou Holtz says “When my bank asks about my assets, I start with Jim and Kate Connelly.”
