Jim is all about:
High performance teams
His goal: To help others as I was helped
Michael is focused in many areas:
After a successful 19-year career in the clothing business, Michael Coles co-founded Great American Cookie Company in 1977 with an investment of only $8,000. Shortly after starting the company, he was involved in a near-fatal motorcycle accident. He was told by doctors he would never walk again unaided. As Coles recovered through a self-designed rehabilitation program, he took the company from its first store in Perimeter Mall in Atlanta to hundreds of stores nationwide. At the same time, he set three coast-to-coast bicycling records.
