The Idea Mensch website often features motivational interviews with interesting individuals. Such is the case with a recent interview that the site held with real estate investor and business expert Jim Toner.
For more than 25 years, Jim Toner has been a leading figure in the American real estate business and has helped many people to become real estate investors and achieve more financial security.
Jim Toner said, he is a big believer in keeping the mind and body strong, Jim Toner usually starts his day by physically working out at the gym. Sharing a trait with successful people around the world, Jim Toner also regularly takes a short nap every afternoon. This expert real estate investor knows that by resting the body and mind, a person can actually be more productive.
Besides physically exercising the body, Jim Toner strongly believes in the benefits to be gained from reading. One of these benefits is being able to learn from others, and Toner says that all of the successful people he knows are readers.
While he is working out, Jim Toner frequently listens to books on tape. By doing so, he is able to exercise both his body and mind simultaneously. Even though he is generally not one to follow trends, Toner is a fan of podcasts, because listening to them is similar in nature to reading.
An interesting and unusual business idea that Jim Toner endorses is to give away ten percent of every dollar earned. Stating that some of the wealthiest people in the world have done so, Toner believes that the positive benefits of using a portion of one’s income to help others is a good business policy.
These days, Jim Toner stays busy working with a limited number of private clients and real estate/business coaching groups. Toner is also a philanthropic man who is known for his efforts in helping homeless people and military veterans.
