Welcome

The Jim Baumer Experience is my personal and professional workspace. I created this site as a platform to share and write about ideas and theories I’ve been working on and piloting for more than a decade. I also wanted to create my own WordPress website.

My fascination with reinvention got me started on this journey back in 2002. I’ve been on a quest ever since.

I have spent much of the past decade involved in a variety of initiatives across the state of Maine: workforce development, employment of people with disabilities, and aging in place. I’ve been recognized for my work in building effective partnerships.

I’m also a freelance writer, author, independent publisher, and book coach/consultant, helping others get their books to market. I can help you achieve publishing success, just like I have.

I have demonstrated that I have the ability to move projects towards success. I have worked as a consultant and project coordinator on smaller, nonprofit projects, and have worked with international corporations. I spent a year as a project manager in rural Maine, shepherding community members and instilling passion in them, helping them take charge in addressing aging in place in Rangeley and New Sharon, while identifying and developing resources that allow seniors to stay in their homes.  I’ve worked with a group in L+A that is committed to sustainable economic growth and the preservation of a historic mill.

What I’m trying to say is that there are exciting things taking place in Maine and elsewhere. I hope you’ll join me in making magic happen.

Please contact me if you want to talk about a project you’d like me to help you get started, or take to the next level. I look forward to hearing from you.
