About Jim Robinson
Passion and Purpose
Jim’s passion for over 25 years has been equipping people of all six American living generations with the proper financial, investment, retirement and estate planning information to make suitable financial decisions.

Jim’s believes that Financial Services Professionals should provide outstanding leadership in helping Americans achieve their financial goals and preserving their lifestyles.
James Robinson is a board certified financial planner (CFP). Jim is also the author of several military fiction novels and well as the author of non-fiction self-help books for Financial Services Professionals and United States Armed Forces Service Members.
Jim draws inspiration from Tom Clancy, an American novelist best known for his technically detailed espionage and military-science novels. Born in Baltimore, Tom Clancy was a Financial Services Professional before he went on to write blockbuster espionage books, including ‘The Hunt for Red October’, ‘Patriot Games’ and ‘Clear and Present Danger.’
Jim’s path is similar to Tom Clancy’s. Jim worked in the Financial Services industry as an insurance agent, Certified Financial Planner, and a General Principal for financial advisors before writing his first book, ‘Changing Faces – America’s Wealth Advisors.” After several years, Jim then turned his attention to his first military fiction novel in the Accelerant Series, ‘The Sixth Extinction.’ The sequel “Continental Drift’ followed a year later. In 2017, Jim completed the non-fiction self-help guide ‘Your Financial Life After Military Service’ for transitioning United States Armed Forces Service Members.
Jim wants you to know he was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia where as a boy, he watched huge container ships travel up and down the Savannah River. Savannah is also home to two military bases, Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Air Force base. He currently works and resides in Fairbanks Alaska, which is home to Fort Wainwright home of the United States Army Garrison and the 354th Fighter Wing, Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska.
Jim’s community involvement includes the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and multicultural organizations. He spends as much time as he can with friends in Tortola BVI and Puerto Rico bill fishing. He also loves fishing in Alaska. Salmon, Halibut, and Trout…a fisherman’s paradise.
Jim appreciates your interest and welcomes you as a reader of his work.
