Jim’s son Jamie died in a rock climbing accident in 2000 at the age of 15. After his son’s death Jim started a non-profit organization that eventually merged with a company called The Bridge. If you are a BMX rider, you may remember that The Bridge is where the annual JoMoPro contest was held for many years.

Jim is a traveler and adventurer who likes to hang-glide, paraglide, scuba dive, snorkel, hike, and ski…he just loves to explore the world with high adrenaline.

Jim is a very wealthy guy and owns a mansion overlooking the river outside of St. Louis, Missouri that is on the National Register of Historic Places that is complete with a tennis court, gazebo, and swimming pool.

Jim accumulated his wealth through investments and was a founding partner in a wealth advisory company called Trinity Wealth Advisors that started in 1997. His firm’s clientele are some of the biggest players in the St. Louis area.

From 1992-1996 Jim hosted a weekly radio program called “More Money with Matush”, but unfortunately we didn’t have time to discuss that on this episode.

Jim is also very active in his local community and church and is a dedicated husband and father. His daughter Lindsay is one of my closest friends that I’ve traveled the world with.

On this episode Jim drops knowledge and inspiration all about money and how it relates to our lives. I got to talk to him about his wealth advisory business and I got to ask him what he thinks about the old cliche of “money is the root of all evil.”

Most of what we ended up talking about was finding balance in your life, a direction for you life, and learning to be generous.

This episode is absolutely packed with valuable content from a very experienced and wise investor and I think you guys will get a lot out of it.
