About Don’t Wait, Lead Now
This book is my attempt to capture some of the most memorable, real-life leadership stories that I’ve heard, learned from others, read about, or personally experienced and benefited from in my own growth as a man, a son, a brother, a husband, a father, and a leader. My intention is to use these stories as a tool for others looking to manage and lead others. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve used analogies, stories, and anecdotes as a way to help me get my messages across in a more fun and succinct manner. I’ve learned that people tend to relate to information differently, and by that, I mean more effectively when they have perspective; when the information being shared with them is something they can relate to. As I grew up working countless blue-collar jobs between the ages of twelve and twenty-one, I began to learn how to use this technique as a means to build relationships, establish credibility, and create a personal brand for myself. When I entered the corporate world, I was pleased to find that these skills were easily transferable into the business world. This book is filled with real-world experiences and lessons you can easily apply to your own situation to help you become a more effective leader, whether in business, family, or life in general.

Jim was born and raised in a lower-middle-class family in western Massachusetts. He learned very early on what the value of hard work and a strong work-ethic would mean for him and his family. As the oldest of three children in a single-parent household, Jim worked hard throughout his teenage years, even quitting high school to work full time to help his mother put food on the table and keep their house warm in the winter. With nothing more than hard work, effort, and determination, Jim went back to graduate high school. He broke the mold and made the shift from blue-collar to white-collar almost overnight. Jim went on to graduate Magna Cum Laude from Providence College. He has more than three decades of leadership experience ranging from managing a local restaurant to leading a successful organization with nearly $500M in annual revenue and more than 380 employees. Jim serves as a Client Experience Advisory Board member for Rutgers University and Seton Hall University. Today, Jim and his family reside in New Jersey.
