Jump In and Start Swimming

A Story of the Unique, Lucrative Career and Life of a BILLION DOLLAR WHOLESALER

By James P. Naughton

Jump in and Start Swimming

OUTSTANDING! Jim, you have done it again! You practiced what you preached. You told me, "I want to write a book! All I need to do is jump in and start swimming!"

The interesting and poignant stories you share to support your values, beliefs, and actions for success are superb. Anyone can benefit by escaping into your life’s adventures. They will take to heart the underlying elements you learned through your journey of "plunging in."

You write as you speak, making for an easy read with powerful, positive, actionable, and vital elements for being successful in any path in life.

I enjoyed it; it was almost like [Naughton was] telling me the story over a few drinks. I especially liked his "bullet" points in Chapter 12. They are sound advice for anyone in any profession at any point in their career. I had a basic understanding of how mutual funds work, and this book considerably enhanced that knowledge.

I first met Jim nearly 25 years ago, and I was immediately struck by his honesty and humility. So writing a book that might have felt almost boastful must have been extremely difficult for him. But how can a successful man tell his truth without imparting some success stories?

Jim’s greatest point is that "showing up" is 90% of being successful; working long hours and being a student of your given profession makes up the rest!

How big a deal is a billion of anything?
   A billion seconds = Thirty-one years
   A billion minutes ago = The time of Christ
   A billion hours ago = Man had not set foot on earth
