Jim Crowell loves doing two things over all else…. Building businesses and mentoring coaches and business owners to enjoy inspiring, fulfilling, and successful careers. He attended Penn State University where he double majored in Finance and Economics. After graduation, Jim moved into the fast paced environment of a commodities trading hedge fund first in Columbus, OH and then in Austin, TX. After five years in the financial arena, Jim couldn’t ignore his heart anymore; he left finance in pursuit of fitness.
For the next four years he founded and successfully scaled multiple fitness facilities in Pittsburgh. He built his reputation around three main principles: hard work, progress, and fulfilment. Those ideas lead him to earn a Business Designation with honors from The Harvard Business School, as well as his MBA through the Kenan-Flagler Business School at The University of North Carolina (UNC) while concurrently working full time.
After his tenure in Pittsburgh, Jim was honoured to join OPEX in sunny Scottsdale, AZ. His unique background helps him understand that every coach and business situation is different and needs to be treated with mindful strategy and relentless execution.
