:: Jim's favorite quotes

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics; to appreciate beauty; to give of one's self, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived--that is to have succeeded.

 -Ralph Waldo Emerson


:: In the beginning.....

What started as a commitment to helping a few individuals improve the quality of their academic and athletic performance has grown into a dynamic program for assisting teenagers across the United States to become strong, successful, well-rounded people.

In 1988, Jim produced the first video version of the Standards of Excellence program. Then in 1992, the Standards of Excellence went to an audio version. With the success of these programs, a newer version was produced in 1997 called Making a Difference, which was extremely successful in impacting teenagers’ lives. The latest and most up-to-date version of Jim’s program is 10 Steps to Success, now available through this website.

Jim is a former professional basketball player in the NBA. He had the privilege of starting his career with the Golden State Warriors and finished with the San Diego Clippers. He is a graduate of West Virginia Wesleyan College, with degrees in business and psychology. Jim is coauthor of the book titled Inspiring Others to Win. He has delivered over 1,000 presentations to corporations, businesses, and schools teaching effective techniques for gaining life skills. From 1994 to 2000, he was the keynote speaker for the DARE program in San Diego, California. Since 1996, he has been a keynote speaker for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Conference. He is on the President’s Advisory Council for West Virginia Wesleyan College and served on the advisory board for Pro Kennex.

Jim was born in Merion, Pennsylvania, just outside Philadelphia, and attended Lower Merion High School. He is married to CJ Thornberry-Brogan and they own and show their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs.
