Storytelling is the all powerful tool for communication, persuasion, and inspiration.

It is a tried and true way of expressing our authentic selves and connecting with others on a deeper level.

In this episode, Jamie Hopkins, Managing Partner of Wealth Solutions, and Ana Trujillo Limón, Director, Coaching and Advisor Content, speak with Jimmy Yeary, Presenter, Songwriter, and Speaker.

  • The significance of leaders being imperfect and vulnerable to create trust and connection with their team

About our Guest: 

Jimmy Yeary is the rarest of speakers. Because his content is filled with instantly recognizable moments, audiences are quickly taken to a high level of energy. For well over a decade, he has influenced millions of people–how they think and what they think about on a daily basis. Jimmy Yeary is not only a highly sought-after speaker, he is a hugely successful songwriter and his music is all around you.

Jimmy Yeary was writing songs long before becoming the lead singer of the Grammy Award-winning supergroup SHENANDOAH. These were years that saw Jimmy performing #1 hits like Mama Knows, Somewhere In the Vicinity of the Heart, and Sunday in the South.

Today, in Nashville and Los Angeles, one of the most common calls in the music industry is from an artist’s representative to Sony Publishing requesting availability on songs from Jimmy Yeary’s catalog of music.

It’s not surprising. Jimmy has written more than two thousand songs, many of which have been featured on albums selling millions of copies–Grammy winners, and gold and platinum awards among them. 14 of Jimmy’s songs have been certified “Number 1” hits as singles by Billboard Magazine.
