Ask Dr. Bunny. A Professional Mentor? Jim Cathcart, guest

Jim Cathcart, CSP, CPAE, Professional Mentor, incredible musician, and bestselling author of 20 books, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss motivation, inspiration, and what being a professional mentor is all about.

Talking with Jim, it’s clear to see why he has been so successful. He is filled to the brim with positive energy – yes, even during this Covid-19 crisis!  Jim is one of the most award winning professional speakers in the world and he has devoted his time to helping others succeed. In 2019 he spent 71 days inside China doing lecture tours and has spoken in 21 cities there. Jim’s TEDx video “How to Believe in Yourself” is in their Top 1% with over 2 million views.
But recently, Jim said “I am no longer a professional speaker, I’m a professional mentor”!  How did he come to that decision? What does that mean, and how can it help YOU?
Jim’s own life reflects the truth that he walks his talk: Jim does 100 pushups every day (hasn’t missed a day in over 1,200 days), runs mountain trails 3 days a week, plays guitar professionally, and has ridden his motorcycle all around the world. He’s been married to Paula Cathcart for 50 years, as of 2020!
Tune in to learn more – and get inspired!
More about Jim Cathcart:
A TV interviewer said, “Jim Cathcart is what ‘Fonzie’ would have been if he’d gone to business school.” (Millennials are asking, “Who is Fonzie?”) Jim was an insurance agent for many years, an Army officer and a bill collector who, while in his twenties, had to repossess log trucks in the mountains of northern Arkansas. From this varied background he decided in 1972 to become an authority on the subject of motivation and through decades of dedication, study and hard work, he made it happen.

In high school I worked weekend nights on drug crisis hotline. People who were having a bad drug experience, or were suicidal or just needed someone in the middle of the night to talk to called in. My job was to listen and be with them until sunrise and they lived to experience another day.

As an undergraduate, I began working with children who were developmentally disabled. I became Executive Director of Forestview Community Homes, Inc. in Minnesota which provided residential programs to children and adults who were developmentally disabled.

While attending Graduate School I was Vice President of Lutheran Social Services of Southern California directing the emergency services, hot meal programs, and senior services in Orange & San Diego Counties and created the counseling program throughout southern California.

While in grad school, I completed my 3,000 hours of counseling internship and became a Certified Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner.

I consider myself to be a life-long learner and I continue to grow in my own knowledge and experience.

Today, I am active in the Medical Hypnosis profession, I teach Advanced Medical Hypnosis to health and wellness professionals and I am active in my home community.

I have served on various boards, volunteered in organizations and I was the sports psychologist for the Bainbridge Boys Lacrosse team on Bainbridge Island, WA.

I love it when young men stop me on the ferry or on the street to share with me how they have used the hypnosis skills that I taught them when they were playing Lacrosse.

They tell me that hypnosis helped get them through college and land their first professional job. Others tell me how they use their hypnosis skills in relationship and parenthood.

These are the stories that fill my heart and make it all worthwhile!

Ask Dr. Bunny. How do you create, maintain and cultivate relationships? Ed Blumenstock, guest.

Ed Blumenstock joins Dr. Bunny to discuss relationships.  Dr. Bunny met Ed when she joined Toastmasters, and was really touched by the way he instantly made her feel so welcomed.

As she’s gotten to know Ed, she has noticed that he seems to have a natural knack for creating, cultivating and maintaining relationships – what a gift! – and she wanted to know more about how he does that so well.

Ed tells us how a career in sales has been instrumental in his way of interacting with people.  In sales, you must be much more concerned about your client than you are yourself.

Ed believes in the Dr. Seuss philosophy of “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened”!

Tune in as Ed shares some thoughts, insights, and stories.  A true delight, especially during this unprecedented time in our country. Prepare to be inspired!

And just for fun, here’s a link to the beautiful song that Ed and Dr. Bunny mentioned, “Dance Me To the End of Love” by Leonard Cohen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGorjBVag0I
