From Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul

Who Is Jack Canfield?

Jack Canfield is a bestselling author and one of America’s leading experts in the development of human potential. He is both a dynamic and entertaining speaker and a highly sought-after trainer.

Jack spent his childhood years growing up in Martins Ferry, Ohio, and Wheeling, West Virginia. Jack admits to being shy and lacking in self-confidence as a kid, but through a lot of hard work, he managed to earn letters in three sports and graduate third in his high school class.

After graduating from college, Jack taught school in Chicago’s inner city and in Iowa. Most of his professional career after that has been spent teaching teachers how to empower kids to believe in themselves and to go for their dreams.

He is the author and narrator of several bestselling audio- and videocassette programs, including Self-Esteem and Peak Performance, How to Build High Self-Esteem and The GOALS Program. He is a regularly consulted expert for radio and television broadcasts and has published fourteen books—all bestsellers within their categories.

Jack addresses over a hundred groups each year. His clients have included schools and school districts; over one hundred education associations, and corporate clients such as AT&T, Campbell Soup, Clairol, Domino’s Pizza, GE, Re/Max, Sunkist, Supercuts and Virgin Records.

Jack conducts an annual seven-day Training of Trainers program in the areas of building self-esteem and achieving peak performance. It attracts educators, counselors, parenting trainers, corporate trainers, professional speakers and ministers.
