It’s not for nothing so many people loved him. Two tidbits –
One time, Jim was giving a motivational seminar, and someone called his office a few days before, to inquire what the event would cover. Told it was a motivational type of training, the caller said, “Oh, well, I’ve already been to all of those.”
“Hmm,” said Jim Rohn’s (well-trained) person, “you haven’t been to this one, have you?”
“Well then, how about I sell you a ticket so you can keep right on saying ‘I’ve been to awwwl of those meetings.'”
The gent bought a ticket.
Jim often talked about reasons one might want to become an entrepreneur. One very good reason, he said, was so that you’d earn enough to give a good person who needs it, a job.
His distinctive voice will be missed.
