An Epic Start
I’m a firm believer that your life, my life are supposed to mean something. We’re here to do epic things, wondrous things for the world and for ourselves. We’re not here to toll endlessly in cubes in a soul sucking job until we die. (yes, I know that sounds dramatic). I also believe:
We’re here to be epic. To have an epic life.
To me, there are three key factors in creating an epic life. They are:
Hi, I’m Jim.
I’m a man, a husband, a father, a social venture entrepreneur. I’ve enjoyed huge successes, colossal failures and I can’t stand artichokes. I am a football fanatic, have two daughters and run marathons (slowly). I love surfing glassy waves in warm water and searching for the meaning and legacy in my own life.
Marcus Aurelius, Michael Jordan and Anthony Kiedis are a few of my biggest heroes. Expect to see a lot of references to them on this site.

It was Sunday morning and my email kept f’ing dinging.
In 2004 I was a sales director for CareerBuilder.com. I was 34, made great money, had a whole bunch of cool dress shirts but there was one problem.

Here are a few testimonials from some past clients. It’s always nice to work with such great people and to help them become successful and achieve their goals.
From Sasha Clines, Former Executive Director, Jeans 4 Justice:
“Jim Simcoe is a man of exceptional character who pours his heart into his business clients. He frequently helps a friend (or stranger) in need and will do everything in his power to help his clients . He has helped me with presentations, project analysis, and business strategies. I once learned he had the opportunity to manage an extreme amount of money which would have personally benefited him immensely. He chose not to go forward because he didn’t agree with the values of the financiers. I admire Jim’s courage.” – John Copyak, CEO Clean Power USA
