Jim Flynn started in the financial industry. He said they used to be called "Stock Brokers" and he liked that title, however, they are now called "Financial Advisors". It has been an industry that has changed for the better of both sides, removing the "conflict of interest".
Jim left the industry three years ago to become a writer. He said someone once asked him where he had been that he would never want to go back to again. His answer was "work".
Jim experienced a seizure which was then diagnosed to be a brain tumor. When he was told, he asked the doctors, "other than that, how am I doing?"
Jim shared about his experience being on Jeopardy, and how it felt to lose. It is quite interesting to hear his story.
We also discussed writing humor, known to be one of the most difficult genres of writing.
Jim discusses self-publishing, his first books, and how he came about his new series, the JR Johnson book series.
