Jim Toner, Spotlight On Responding To Financial Defeat
Jim Toner was interviewed about his thoughts on a variety of topics including his daily habits and work philosophy. Here’s some background information about Jim, he is a real estate entrepreneur, business consultant and philanthropist. He’s responsible for a unique methodology of always going “against the grain,” to discover your own way of developing a business. After once having a personal fortune with an expensive home and car, Jim and his family lost it all. They relocated to Scottsdale after leaving behind their home and possessions in Pittsburg. From there, Jim Toner was both literally and figuratively back to zero. Despite pressure to innovate, to come up with something entirely new as a business concept, Jim followed his gut. His instincts lead him back to what he knew best, real estate investing.
Instead of seeing his life downturns as a major defeat, Jim Toner used them as motivation; finding a reason to push himself to give more and fight harder. He was left with no money, a rental car and no place to call home; but he persevered through by putting action behind his words. The fortune he initially built was made from teaching others how to invest in real estate, with no money or credit. He applied the same advice he spent countless years teaching others and soon embarked onto a new path to success. Now, fast forward to present day and Jim Toner is once again teaching real estate investment seminars using his nearly three decades of experience.
In order to attend his seminars, people pay airfare anywhere in the range of 2,000 to 15,000 dollars. The reason that they’re willing to do this is because many have heard of Jim’s customized approach for real estate investing called, the 12 Little Houses Plan. The plan involves talking to others and looking for new opportunities to invest in the real estate market. His method has been identified as, “intelligent real estate investing.” And as a result, Jim Toner is often asked to appear as an expert guest on popular financial news shows. He has been on television with some of the biggest names in the industry; this includes as a speaker of the Napoleon Hill Foundation and with Sharon Lechter and Frank McKinney.
Another aspect of Jim Toner’s life is his involvement with various charitable organizations. He stated that he advises all entrepreneurs to donate, give freely of their time or money, without seeking anything in return. Because his philanthropic experiences have taught him that it comes back to you double fold. Jim also identifies some resources to help in this regard, they include listening to podcasts and using an online tool called, Charity Navigato.
