Jim Mattie

Biography

Hello! I’m Jim Mattie, the creator of GoogaStories LLC. I am a husband, father of three daughters and a retired pharmacist.

I have always had a passion to give back and also felt strongly to influence my children in the same way. As a father, I felt a need to nurture my children without telling them directly what to do. So I would develop stories that deliver a message I wanted to share. To avoid children’s names that they may encounter, I created an imaginary girl by the name of Googa; hence, the name GoogaStories.

For the past 30 years, I have been telling these stories to others and sharing the concept of Googa to other parents to utilize the Googa Stories platform to help foster the message they wish to deliver to their children.

As time progressed, many people have told me or my children that this concept should be shared with others. GoogaStories has ALWAYS been a passion to share; however, I never had the gateway to bring the concept to fruition.

Upon retirement, I knew it was time to take Googa Stories to the next level. We now have created a platform for not only our own GoogaStories but also, the ability for others to contribute messages to incorporate in future stories.
