Martial arts transformed Jim’s self-perception from former drug abuser and failure to successful entrepreneur and Black Belt. As a speaker and author of Amazon bestseller Think Like a Black Belt, Jim tours nationally presenting his philosophy of Black Belt Mindset for coporate and conference audiences. He's a regular guest on TV and radio programs including FOX News, BBC Worldview and FOX Across America.


Before the Baltimore riots reached their full crescendo on Monday afternoon, mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake made a critical leadership error––one that likely incited or at least exacerbated the mayhem. In the relative calm following the “purging” riots, she compounded that mistake. One of the most important strategies for effective leadership is clear and effective communication.

Shermer's work is always fascinating and powerful.

Sometimes I didn't know where the author was going with this one, but taken in total this book is a wealth of information about how we think and how we make decisions.

“Il nous faut de l'audace, encore de l'audace, toujours de l'audace!"

[Assemblée legislative, Paris; Sept. 2, 1792]”
Georges Jacques Danton

Jim Bouchard, Think Like a Black Belt

“Sit in a room and read--and read and read. And read the right books by the right people. Your mind is brought onto that level, and you have a nice, mild, slow-burning rapture all the time.”
Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

“Go to the people. Live with them. Learn from them. Love them. Start
with what they know. Build with what they have. But with the best
leaders, when the work is done, the task accomplished, the people will
say 'We have done this ourselves.”
Lao Tzu

“Service is providing what's wanted, not what I'd like to give.”
Brian Klemmer, The Compassionate Samurai: Being Extraordinary in an Ordinary World
