Jim Straw passed away on Dec. 3, 2012
 
I just heard from Harvey Brody that Jim Straw passed away yesterday, Dec. 3, 2012.

This is very sad news. I always have had immense respect for Jim Straw, and he has helped me many times in the past when I needed good advice (in my business, but also in my personal life as well).

I was very much in his debt.

May God bless him for all the good work he has done, and help his family too, in their time of grief...

The obit said he was 67 years old. That can't be right, can it?
Maybe they transposed the numbers?

Thats pretty sad.

Jim was one of the first guys who got on board and helped me promote my Marketing Hotsheet newsletter 10 years back. I learnt a lot of things from him over the years.

1. Having the ugliest website in the world won't hinder your growth. But not being helpful to others will.

2. Repeating the message is not bad. In fact, every repetition will bring in 50% more sales.

3. Think beyond yourself. Help connect people.

I'll truly miss him. :'(

Sad Times… Losing wonderful People like Jim Straw who [Shared] so many {Awesome} Learning Experiences…

Always way to young though, no matter our age… But reasons for Everything in Life I guess…

Back Together with his Life partner will be wonderful I’m sure, Sad loss but Life has it’s Reasons whether we Like it, Believe in it or not…

My understanding is that Jim’s children are very involved in Jim’s business network…

So Hopefully as with other Legacies within the Business world…

Jim Staw’s will Continue-on in Many ways into the Future Also…

I’m sure we’ll be hearing More as the Family celebrates his life and Heals as best as possible during these Difficult times…

After the Healing process...

Hopefully! Jim Staw’s work, past and new material, Experiences will live on Continually into the very distant [Future] for Ever! …

So Glad! Jim got a Chance to Publish his very recent book…

A Must read… If some Haven’t already!

It is so sad!

There are so few people who know how to say, teach and do the right thing for themselves and for all who are willing to listen, see, do and learn. Jim was one of them.

I will miss him.
