Bob-Work-With-MeHi! I’m Bob Karcher. I’m a writer, speaker, and coach and I simply love engaging, encouraging, and empowering my readers and clients to reach for and achieve more than they ever thought possible.

My wife, Susan Karcher, and I have just completed our very first book, Who Are the Joneses Anyway? Our book is due to be released in early 2016 under the Morgan James Publishing banner. Stay tuned here and you’ll be among the first to learn more about the book, my new blog, a planned podcast, and more.

I spent a large part of my career in the publishing and advertising industries, including serving as a Chief Operating Officer in the Tribune Company, then owner of the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Hoy Publications, and multiple other media properties operating in the print, broadcast, and digital media sectors. Following my publishing career, I spent several years in the nonprofit sector, serving in a variety of executive-level staff and board member roles.

I really enjoy my current role and am passionate about helping people discover who they are and why they are here so they can lead intentional, authentic lives filled with passion and purpose.

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Leadership from Biola University. I am a Certified Halftime Coach and a Certified Professional Motivators Analyst.

Susan and I have been happily married for over fifteen years and are blessed to have a growing, blended family. We live in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area and love it here. My hobbies include reading, walking, bike riding, and experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes whenever I get a chance.

It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for.

Ephesians 1:11
