Jim grew up in LaGrange, Ohio, attended Ohio State where he met John Joseph from Episode 5, and then embarked on a landscape architecture career.  He then moved forward to become a coach, speaker, and author of three high-volume selling books to help businesses and professionals move forward toward their goals.

Jim shared 5 principles which he drives his work from.  These are:

  • continuous learning
  • appreciate people
  • positive attitude
  • setting goals
  • don't quit

Jim calls himself a "motivational listener" and feels he excels at pulling dreams and passions from people.

One of Jim's missions is to combat physical inactivity in people's lives.  He has launched the Come Alive Outside movement for people to be involved in.  Click here for more information.  This webpage is a great read if you are concerned about people, especially children, spending so much time playing indoors.

For episode 7 of The Outstanding Ohioians show, I had the privilege of interviewing Gene Logsdon, the well-known "Contrary Farmer".  Gene has authored 30 books, written for many farming journals, and his popular blog "The Contrary Farmer".

During the interview that will stir your soul, Mr. Logsdon will reminisce about growing up and returning to Upper Sandusky, being raised in a charming rural lifestyle, giving the Seminary a try, becoming a writer, raising a family, and recently fighting a battle with cancer that made him look at life through a different lens.

Mr. Logsdon is best recognized through his writing as an advocate for garden and small-scale farming, along with sharing pieces of farming history.  His writing is often the result from his own small farming operations or talking to others.

I really enjoyed my conversation prior to the interview, and I trust you will enjoy listening to the podcast.   Here is how you can learn more about Mr. Logsdon:

Thank you for listening.  Please rate the show on Itunes or Sticher.


In episode 6, the show took a different approach, in that we interviewed an expert about a historical figure in Ohio history.  I interviewed Laura Bullock, Volunteer Director at the Sherman House and Museum in Lancaster, Ohio.  The Sherman House and Museum is part of the Fairfield County Heritage Society.  This historical house was home for the prestigious Sherman family.

Of the 11 children who lived in this house, General William Tecumseh Sherman and Senator John Sherman were the two most well-known historical figures.

Some of the most well-known events in their lives:

Some resources to learn more about the Sherman brothers:

For information on the Civil War Symposium referenced by Laura in the interview, click here.  Please note this event takes place September 27 and September 28.

SHOW NOTES

 

In this episode, listeners will listen how Tom and Bev Theobald transformed their family farm into a very successful agri-tourism enterprise.  Agri-tourism is a movement based on getting customers to visit the farm for a variety of activities. This book is an excellent resource to learn about agri-tourism.

 

 

Tom and Bev were very generous in sharing the successes and learning opportunities from unsuccessful ventures.  They walked through each development phase from ideation to infrastructure to execution, and then evaluation.  They shared their philosophies of listening to customers, offering a quality product, working as a family, and giving back generously to the community.

I was inspired by listening to the Theobald’s story and admire how they have created an incredible family business.  I believe you will feel the same way.  Thank you for listening.
