JIM KWIK is a New York Times Best Selling Author, Entrepreneur, and International Speaker. After suffering a brain injury at the age of 5, he thought he was useless and a worthless person. But one day when he met the father of a friend, he found out that he was not worthless and then he started reading what he loves and kept focusing on the concept of “how to learn something”, and he started investing his focus in learning. After years of slowly investing, he learned how to become an expert in speed-reading, brain performance, memory improvement, and accelerated learning. He is now a well-known brain coach. He has trained CEOs, celebrities, and many big companies such as Virgin, SpaceX, Fox Studios, Naik, Japon, and Harvard University. He also wrote the book, Limitless, and he donates the proceeds to charities advancing the studies in Alzheimer's and underdeveloped countries providing schools and opportunities for learning.
