Vulnerable only to Kryptonite and Magic, I am both a former baby and a future skeleton.

I grew up in Williamsport PA, a town that time forgot and the decades haven’t improved.

I moved to Colorado. That was a lot nicer.

I have been a dishwasher, a logger, a fire lookout, a forest fire fighter, a Ranger, a brother, lad, and Dad. I proudly served our government.

I have spent time behind bars. But only as a Bartender.

I work in restaurants and retail and like both. I travel a lot. 

My basic philosophy of life I learned from a Sicilian organ-grinder on the Atlantic City boardwalk in 1903: “Life, she a-no messa with me, and me, I a-no messa with her.”


The people I’ve admired, the work I’ve done and the way I think are all the same thing.


How lucky/nice is that?

I learn a lot of stuff and share it on my website, on Twitter @Sullivision and my YouTube channel (Jim Sullivan’s Video Channel)

Like Jim Gaffigan, I’m a vegetarian. Not a strict one. I eat meat.

Along the way I’ve learned key stuff like:

  • Life and business is all about relationships; the rest is just details. 
  • Every day is Earth Day. 
  • Everything in moderation. But occasionally…
  • If it is, it is; if it’s not, it’s not. 
  • Don’t punish your liver like it shot a cop.
  • Mo money? Mo problems. (Biggie was right.) 

Please check out my new book Fundamentals: 9 Ways to Be Brilliant @ the New Basics of Business. It’s at Amazon or USA Today said: "Read it and reap." I say, thanks for making this the best dang industry in the world!
