The James Austin Company and Up A Notch Marketing LLC presents
"Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway”
From the streets of Turtle Creek, PA to Beverly Hills, from “street tough” to “suave manager” of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and Wall Street Executive – meet JIM CONNELLY!
“I grew up in the projects of Turtle Creek and learned on the mean streets that with every adversity carries with it the seed of an equivalent benefit.”
Jim Connelly’s amazing journey from Turtle Creek to the boardroom of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in just 6 short years is nothing short of astonishing. With no college degree, no money and no connections, Connelly did what everyone who knew him thought would be impossible.
“Anyone in today’s economy with the right work ethic, the right attitude, and the right mentor can still create a successful life for themselves.
As Jim explored other business opportunities, he 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.
Jim has established 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. (see the remarkable story at www.onemoresunset.com).
"The Donna Jones story is very heart warming and I was amazed at Jim's dedication to her recovery." --Don Green, Executive Director, Napoleon Hill Foundation
"Hope our paths cross in the not too distant future." -- Peter Ueberroth, Chairman of the 1984 US Olympics and Time "Man of the Year"
In his first public appearance in Pittsburgh, Connelly is going to share stories of:
The big lesson he learned from Frank Sinatra and why Frank asked Connelly to throw his 50th birthday party.
How he learned to ask 2 simple questions that almost guaranteed success and how it still works as magically today as it did 35 years ago ---- and they’re never taught in college.
Why Elvis Presley’s weekend request of Connelly should be a case study in how to be flexible in the business world.
The 3 books that changed his life.
"I value our 30 year friendship." -- Kirk Kerkorian, Chairman, MGM
"When my bank asks about my assets, I start with Jim and Kate Connelly." -- Lou Holtz, legendary Football Coach and Analyst for ESPN
Today Connelly is:
• Trustee of the Lou Holtz Hall of Fame
• Chairman of the Board and co-founder with his son Jeff of Integrated Communications Services, an international communications and information systems services provider.
• The Director of the Napoleon Hill Speaker's Bureau.
• Serves as an advisor to some of America's most successful leaders and entrepreneurs sharing his extensive business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit to help their companies grow and thrive during his Inner Circle weekends.
• Sought out by top executives and entrepreneurs to become their personal master mentor through one-on-one private coaching.
