Memory Hacks to Help Make You More Money with Jim Kwik


I am out of mind excited for you all to hear my conversation with amazing memory-improvement expert, Jim Kwik. Once called the kid with the “broken brain” because he was a slower learner (as a result from a severe brain injury at age 5), he struggled in school into his college years. But just when he was about to give up, he met family/man who had him write down all his dreams on paper. Once those dreams were read aloud by that man, Jim’s life changed and he committed to finding new ways to help him learn to learn more quickly.

Fast forward several years later, and Jim is a sought-after expert when it comes to memory improvement and speed reading. This episode is going to be life-changing for you as he shares in detail how to improve your memory as well as how to rewire your brain’s limiting money mindset beliefs. He gives this advice freely because he doesn’t want others to suffer and struggle like he once did. Jim truly believes in “no brain left behind.”

I could go on and on about what he shares, however I’ll let you listen and learn for yourself. And my advice? Have a notebook and pen ready to capture all of the priceless information Jim provides – episodes like this don’t come around too often.
