About Jim  (from his website)

Hi, my name is Jim Greenwood.

Just scratching the visible surface … I was born and raised in Southern California … started my first business when I was 14 … graduated from USC with a major in finance and a minor in sociology … been married for 35 years … have four adult kids (oxymoron?) … started and sold successful businesses … retired twice (the first time to be with my young and growing family) …chaired not-for-profit … traveled the US and the world … received a black belt in Hap Ki Do/Tai Kwon Do … and so much more.

The common denominator of it all has been personal change.

Tossly comes from reviewing my years of change, and that of the people who have changed around me. In exploring that change I’ve identified valuable processes and tools that anyone can use as an ally in change, when it’s wanted, in any area it’s needed. It is those ideas and concepts that Tossly now shares.

I wish you all the best and look forward to meeting you.

Have Fun, Jim

Although this interview was recorded over a year ago,  the wisdom Jim shared in still relevant. Thank you Jim!

SpaceUp is a space unconference for people who care deeply about humanity’s future in space and want to play a part in it.

An unconference means that the attendees (read: you) decide the topics, schedule, and structure of the event. Anyone attending SpaceUp is encouraged to give a talk, moderate a panel, or start a discussion. Sessions are proposed and scheduled on the day they’re given, which means the usual “hallway conversations” often turn into full-fledged topics.

Let’s Play – This is How We Do It (in Space)

Since we didn’t get to schedule a lunch, I thought I’d share some of the related mentions from my presentation at the Space Tourism Society Dinner in Los Angeles.

10 years ago, on April 28, Dennis Tito soared to space on  Soyuz rocket become the world’s first space explorer to fund his own trip to space. Dennis – Thank you for your contribution to opening the space frontier.

A few hours ago, I spoke @ FRED hosted by Steve Glenn of Living Homes. What a wonderful way to end a Wednesday. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to share my love of space. I don’t think there were any pics taken at the event – guess you had to be there.

For those who were there, I’m copying some of the items, events, etc I mentioned.

I think that’s enough for now. Ad Astra!

I attended the recent Space Access Conference  in Phoenix presented by Henry Vanderbilt and the Space Access Society.”Space Access conferences are designed to let people who are serious about low-cost space transportation get together, trade information, make deals, and learn useful things” (

I’m listing a series of blogs that covered the details of the conference. If you love rockets, this conference is for you.

I thought for Yuri’s Night it would be appropriate to post a mix that might work for spaceflight – whether are reaching the space in your dreams, staying aloft in orbit, or somewhere in between.

April 12, 2011 is the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s flight to space and we’re listing ways you can celebrate the first flight of a human to space.

  • Invite to Yuri’s Night, global space party.
  • First Orbit – a new film to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the flight of Yuri Gagarin. First Orbit will premiere on this channel on the 12th April 2011.

We’re still working through some technical issues on the site. There are several  items worthy of your attention.
