FUN FACTS

When your adjectives become explitives… That’s a #%@? PROBLEM!

I think one of the stories it comes to my mind as I was shooting a Bollywood film which, by the way, I know there aren’t a lot of Americans that can say that they have been in a Bollywood film.

I was one of the supporting actors, it was through Disney and was called ABCD2. Apparently it has broken all the records in the box office and is the highest grossing Bollywood film, that’s pretty cool for my first Bollywood movie.

I flew into Mumbai, India, and absolutely love the place! It’s very cool and hope to go back again because it is a franchise movie. I have my fingers crossed that they will talk to me about returning because I believe they enjoyed my performance.

It was a Bollywood/Disney film and shot in 3-D. The only thing missing was smell-a-vision.

I’m in there and they’re talking to me with the director while I get into make-up, costume, etc., and there’s about 600 extras that they have sitting in chairs all around. That’s when I make my announcements to the dance teams who come up. They were there in this whole gigantic sound studio which was all on a giant green screen. This basically means that all the walls in the whole place were done in green screen to show it like a Las Vegas casino, and it was very well done. I made one of my announcements (lines) then lo and behold the director comes up and says, “That was fantastic Will, let’s do it again.”

Folks, we’re talking there are 600 extras there, so the next day they replicated exactly the same scene and we shot it again, so there’s my interesting story.

As a speaker, Jim Cathcart was selected as a 2017 Top 25 Speaker (#9) out of 1,300 speakers in an online survey by Speaking.com. 27,000 people voted in this survey to isolate the Top 25. This is the 3rd year in a row that Jim achieved this ranking.

Designated as the first “Entrepreneur in Residence” by California Lutheran University’s School of Management since late 2016. Jim is also an Adjunct Professor in their Executive MBA program. Chosen one of the Top Sales Influencers of 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017 by Top Sales World Magazine based in London & Paris. In December of 2012 Jim Cathcart was inducted into the Sales & Marketing Hall of Fame in London, England. This is in addition to his existing Speaker Hall of Fame listing.

A business strategist, psychological researcher and philosopher at heart, Jim is also a down-to-earth regular guy. He has worked in warehouses, driven trucks, sold door to door and at trade shows, been a bank teller, plays guitar in night clubs and pubs, and has toured much of the world on a motorcycle.

A TV interviewer said, “Jim Cathcart is what ‘Fonzie’ would have been if he’d gone to business school.” (Millennials are asking, “Who is Fonzie?”) Jim was an insurance agent for many years, an Army officer and a bill collector who, while in his twenties, had to repossess log trucks in the mountains of northern Arkansas. From this varied background he decided in 1972 to become an authority on the subject of motivation and through decades of dedication, study and hard work, he made it happen.

After hearing Earl Nightingale on the radio one day in 1972, Jim was inspired to change his life. While working as a government clerk in the Housing Authority he determined to learn psychology and master the process of self-improvement. Through years of fanatical dedication to this quest he learned new skills, became a certified trainer for a variety of programs, read stacks of books, attended countless seminars and volunteered thousands of hours to civic organizations. In this process he moved from clerk, to manager, to sales person, to leader, to trainer, to author and professional speaker.
