In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with author Jimmy Burgess.
Jimmy is from northwest Florida and grew up working in a family real estate company until he became burned out. He started working with a bank as a commercial lender right as the real estate boom hit. He was doing well and enjoyed his job, but still felt that something was missing. Jimmy soon realized that if something was going to change about his situation, he had to change to make it happen.
Jimmy began to focus on positivity. He started reading biographies by people who had led extraordinary lives. Jimmy left his job at the bank and began to focus on people. He asked people what they needed or wanted in their lives and businesses, and after a while he realized that he had two lists of people: ones who needed something, and ones who had what the other people needed. He started putting people together and helping them get what they needed through these connections. Soon Jimmy was thriving on his own in this new adventure.
But Jimmy lost himself again. He began focusing on himself rather than the people he had wanted to help. When faced with the reality of having to claim bankruptcy, he asked himself what had he done? He felt shame and guilt for putting his family into this situation. He had fallen into a tailspin that he couldn’t stop. He realized he had to change again and get back to focusing on other people like he had originally intended.
Jimmy now uses his own life experiences to help coach and teach other people how to make changes and turn their lives into something positive. Listen in as Jimmy tells us about his struggles and how he turned his life around, and how he hopes to help you do the same.
