Jim Griffiths ran away from home young and quit school to join a rock-band 3,000 miles away, after getting kicked out of boot camp, (all prior to turning 18). In his early twenties he found himself working the docks in Dutch Harbor, Alaska, contemplating the future. He knew if he didn’t return to the lower states and at least try, he’d regret it for the rest of his life.  

Inspired and motivated by extraordinary mentors, he went on to conquer insecurities and fears which led to being successful in business at a young age. He adopted what he refers to as the “Traits of an Entrepreneur” and has developed an educational system with a specific focus on why most people, in business and personally, are stuck in a spot:

What it took to get from A to B is not the same as what it will take to get from B to C. It’s time to make some changes, develop new habits, and set a new course.”

His stories are motivational, exciting, and as he says, “Like a grocery store…. there’s a little something for everyone.”

Name a specific topic or just let him run with scissors. Your audience will not be disappointed!


In 2017 Jim wrote and published the book “Don’t Tell Me I Can’t Do Ita collection of his life from Key Largo to Alaska explaining how mentors helped him learn how to overcome fears and make things happen.
