    "Going through life with a few extra challenges has made me a better person, not better than anyone else, but better than I would have been. I've learned that sometimes adversity can be a good thing." Jim Abbott

"There are no words to describe the impact Jim had on my business, he was nothing short of phenomenal. Jim spoke for breakfast, lunch and dinner seminars. His story touched everyone in the room with standing room only in some instances." —Prudential

"Jim Abbott is awesome. You could hear a pin drop during his speech. Frankly, I am not a baseball fan, don't really know that much about it, but it really didn't make any difference. His speech - to me - had little to do with baseball although the stories he wrapped around his words did. We laughed, and many of us (me especially) cried as he wove his touching story of his life and experiences overcoming his handicap. He is charming, very receptive to our guests, and he was willing to take the time to go to our luncheon, pose for pictures, and answer questions from anyone who asked. I now know more about human behavior since I've met and heard Jim Abbott. It was a great experience." —Toshiba

"Jim, I've been producing events like these for over 20 years. In that period of time I have NEVER experienced the deafening silence in a crowd that large, all of whom had their minds, hearts and souls transfixed on your speech. You touched the hearts of each and every person on the Civic Center, and your message of adaptability, determination and trust is now embossed on the spirits of hundreds of community leaders. The e-mails and voicemails filled with kudos and praise have been unending since the meeting this morning. You’re going to be a VERY tough act to follow." —United Way
