Jim Shooter Bio:
Jim Shooter is an American writer, editor and publisher for various comic books. He started professionally in the medium at the age of 13 at what is now DC Comics , and he is most notable for his legendary 1978 – 1987 run as Marvel Comics' editor-in-chief, and his work as editor in chief of Valiant Comics.
He was also both the creator and EIC of DEFIANT Comics, and Broadway Comics. During his tenure at Marvel, the company enjoyed some of its best successes. He believed that every title, no matter how unpopular it was, deserved a chance to succeed. He abandoned the long-time Marvel Comics policy that allocated the best writers to the best-selling titles.
This allowed some of the second-string titles, such as The Uncanny X-Men and Daredevil, to reach then-unprecedented heights of popularity. After leaving Marvel, he fronted an effort to purchase the publisher from its corporate ownership, losing out at the last minute to a slightly higher bid. He then founded a new company, Voyager Communications, which published comics under the Valiant Comics banner, Valiant entered the superhero market with a relaunch of the Gold Key Comics character Magnus, Robot Fighter.
Shooter brought many of Marvel's creators to Valiant, including people like Steve Ditko and Barry Windsor-Smith, as well as industry veterans such as Art Nichols, John Dixon, and Don Perlin.
Jim founded Defiant Comics in 1993, Broadway comics in 1995,with many other positions, gigs, and comics written between then and today. Currently Jim is the EIC of illustrated media, a custom comic book company.

Many of Mr. Hall's lectures have been transcribed and are available as pamphlets; others were taped live, and the audio recordings are available on CD's as well. He is perhaps best known for his 1928 classic, "The Secret Teachings of All Ages," an encyclopedia of the world's wisdom traditions and symbolic disciplines. Today, younger generations are re-discovering the works and words of Manly Hall, finding that the material he put forth so many years ago is still relevant and useful today. Mr. Hall's hope for humanity was to learn from the greatest minds of all times so that we may solve current problems - both in society and in the individual - today.

Bob Proctor Bio:
Bob Proctor born July 5, 1934 was a Canadian self-help author and lecturer. He was best known for his New York Times best-selling book You Were Born Rich (1984) and a contributor to the film The Secret (2006).
Proctor's material maintained the idea that a positive self-image is critical for obtaining success.
In 1961, Bob Proctor started studying “Think and Grow Rich” and it transformed his life. Bob listened to Earl Nightingale’s condensed recording of the book thousands of time. Then, Bob worked shoulder-to-shoulder with Earl Nightingale at Nightingale-Conant from 1968 to 1973, before leaving to start his own personal development company. Today, Bob has studied thousands of books, continued to read “Think and Grow Rich” every day, and is considered the world’s foremost expert on the human mind. Throughout his material, Bob Proctor aims to have the reader or audience tap into their "inner self".
He explains their inner-self is what is controlling all that is brought into their life - and that a bad self-image, or bad paradigm "programming", will lead to poor results even with training and proper education. Australian-based filmmaker Rhonda Byrne discovered Proctor's book and led her to requesting he be interviewed and participate in the 2006 movie The Secret. The personal development company they bob founded with sandy Gallagher, the proctor Gallagher institute, continues on as founder bob proctor graduates to the next phase of his eternal journey.
