Jim James Jr.

Jim James is a published author and lover of the outdoors. When he isn’t watching survival shows, or reading post-apocalyptic books, he enjoys coaching his daughters’ soccer teams and spending time with his family.


After doing college jobs ranging from a YMCA counselor, to a Domino’s Pizza driver, to an insurance adjuster, I graduated in 2000 with a degree in History, Anthropology, and Music.

I did what typical 20-somethings do and bummed around for a while, doing a lot of gaming, and a lot of recreational things (like Golf and playing chess). Eventually, I got a bit more serious and decided to go back into the insurance game and started back working as an insurance adjuster in 2002. I moved to the Charlotte, NC area and have been here ever since.

Along the way, I took up Poker and got pretty serious about it over the last 10 years. I even wrote a best-selling book on the subject called Automatic Poker. I now run a training site and teach dozens of students how to improve their poker game with the least amount of study and effort.

In late 2021, due to my love of learning, I decided it would be fun to learn more about every bit of info I could get my hands (eyes) on. Since I also enjoy building websites, I decided to start clearanswersnow.com so that I can share with the world what I learn, while I learn it.

I don’t claim to be an expert on anything outside of insurance appraisal, history, and poker. However, due to my background and degree, I do know how to research. I love pouring through books, articles, and Google in order to find answers to interesting questions that myself, and hopefully the readers of this website will as well.
