Welcome back to The Main Thing Podcast! I’m your host Skip Lineberg.
Our special guest is so dynamic. When I think of this person, I can’t help but think of The Energizer Bunny. He just keeps going … and going … and going. Jim Strawn is a charismatic leader, doing his part to make America and his home state of West Virginia a better place … to live, work, learn and play. In pursuit of this, Jim wears many hats: author, TV show host, emcee, marketing & PR strategist, fundraiser, radio personality, basketball public address announcer, track athlete and university professor. He is also the president of Jim Strawn & Company. Jim and wife, Lisa, reside in Charleston, WV. You’re in for a whirlwind of wisdom from this energetic, wise guest!
Learn more about Jim’s story, his work and his interests here.
Check out Jim’s “Sad Mad Glad Book” series here.
