Who Is Jim Whittaker
I feel that it is about family, because whenever there is a decision to be made, the first thought that pops into my head is “how will this affect my family?”
My entire adult life has been lived by one philosophy and that is, “if I help enough people get what they want, I will get what Iwant”. I know it seems a little cliché and it is hard to say where it originated. Some believe motivational speaker Zig Zigglars aid it first.
My intorduction to the phrase was found in a book by an ex-high school football coach turned insurance mogul, Art Williams and it was called “Pushing Up People”. I read this just prior to buying my first RE/MAX franchise. It made sense but I had not really experienced it on a large scale to this point in my life.
As a franchise owner, I was able to create a system, provide coaching, a vehicle and support that changed families lives forever. Making a difference in peoples lives that actually changed their destiny was much more powerful then being a part of one event in time.
As the saying goes, “feed a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he will never go hungry” .
That is what I now dedicate my life to doing from home on the internet, where we can create many more success stories. There is no better feeling in the world than doing something you really love, actually making a living at it and helping others along the way. So I guess when it comes down to it, it really is about me.
It’s all about FAMILY, Friends and the Time and Freedom to Enjoy Them.
