SUMMARY:  For more than three decades Jim Paluch has been an author, business coach and inspiring motivational speaker. His books, newsletters and workshops have impacted thousands worldwide.

Jim’s commitment to energize a zillion people is built on the approach of “speaking with people not at them.” Whether presenting on stage or coaching a leadership team or individual, this approach works because people feel engaged in the process, and that builds confidence to take action and get results. His willingness to stretch himself and his audiences comes through in his passion for motivational speaking and his creative approach to the books he has written and programs his team at JP HORIZONS developed.

His latest book, THE DEPRESSED MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER, published in JULY 2022 is impacting readers not only to rethink the approach to defeating depression but also presents a strategy for winning at life.

Recently retired from speaking, Jim enjoys the serenity of rural life in western Massachusetts with his wife, Beth. Jim still enjoys writing, being a persistent oil painter, and is always ready for a walk in the woods.
