Jim Kwik Net Worth – $5 million

What is Jim Kwik’s net worth? Is Jim Kwik married?


Jim Kwik is an American business coach, author, and entrepreneur who founded Kwik Learning.

He is a widely recognized world expert in accelerated learning, brain performance, memory improvement, and speed-reading.


Kwik was born on July 29, 1973, in New York City, USA.

At age 5, Jim suffered a brain injury after he hit his head on a radiator. Later, he recalled:

“I was bleeding everywhere. There was a pool of blood and my parents, the way they describe it, it was very traumatic.”

The accident led to his slow brain performance. Kwik spent several years training his brain for memory improvement and speed-reading.

Later, he created strategies to significantly enhance his mental performance. During an interview, Jim said:

“I started reading anything I could get my hands on about learning; adult learning theory, learning styles, reading, memory, focus.”

Kwik Learning

Jim is the Founder and CEO of Kwik Learning, an online brain-training company that is based in LA.

For more than 20 years, Kwik has served as the brain coach to educators, entrepreneurs, seniors, and students, and as an advisor to numerous of the world’s celebrities and leading CEOs.

Jim has also trained universities, namely Harvard University, for optimal brain development performance as well as companies such as Virgin, Fox Studios, and Nike.

Kwik said in an interview:

“Primarily I’m a personal trainer for your brain.”

Jim went on to say:

“Just like a personal trainer for your body makes your muscles stronger, faster, more agile, more flexible, younger, and stronger, that’s what I do for your mental muscles.”

He added:

“I want to make your brain faster, smarter, more focused, more agile, more youthful.”

Rapid Reader

Jim reads through light fiction around 1300 words per minute and heavy technical tomes at around 500 words per minute.

He explained:

“The average person reads 200-250 words-per-minute and spends 3 to 4 hours of their workday reading. That’s more than one-third of their time on the job.”

He continued:

“If that person makes $60,000 a year, then at least $20,000 of that money is paying for them to read.”

Kwik went on to say:

“But proper training can easily double the average person’s reading speed (up to 400-450 w.p.m.). That cuts 3 to 4 hours down to 1 to 2.”

Jim has shown off his memory capacity in many conferences. He said for The Mindvalley Podcast:

“We brought people right on stage, we memorize everyone’s name, and they gave me a list of numbers, and I memorized in forwards and backwards.”

Kwik also said:

“And I always tell people that I don’t do this to impress you.”

He later added:

“I really do this to express to you what’s really possible, because every single person listening, you can do that and so much more.”

According to Jim, the secret to improving your reading comprehension is to increase your reading speed. He said:

“If you don’t give your brain the stimulus it needs, it seeks entertainment elsewhere in the form of distraction, mind wandering or falling asleep.”

To do this, you need to reduce subvocalization (saying words in your head while reading). Jim explained that you can reduce subvocalization if you:

  • chew gum or count internally;
  • listen to music that doesn’t have lyrics while reading;
  • read faster than you normally do.
