Multi-millionaire-dollar business owner Jimmy Colson was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Quite the opposite.

He had to overcome being raised by a heroin-addicted mother who used her welfare checks to get her next fix (instead of food for Jimmy and his two younger siblings), a biological father with Paranoid Schizophrenia, abuse, homelessness, violence, and a long list of other obstacles to get to where he is today. His tell-all book is live now: CopyThatPops.com/Jimmy Despite it all, Jimmy Colson never gave up and wants others going through tough times to know there is a way out of the dark depths. Today, a successful business owner who loves to give back and make a positive difference, Jimmy found the process of writing his story cathartic and sees it as the start of more speaking, interviews, and reaching even more people.

A Few Highlights and Mentions: - When did Jimmy first think about writing this book? - Advice to others contemplating writing their story and sharing it with the world. - Who has already reached out asking Jimmy to speak on stage, even before the book is published? - Happy 2 Year Anniversary of my first book!
