Here’s what some of James’s staff say about working with him:
“Working with James and his team has been amazing. Over the past year and a half, I've grown in ways I couldn't imagine. James and his team is a fountain of knowledge helping me to grow with overcoming obstacles, strengthening systems, finding flow in communication with virtual teams and learning new technical skills. The team here is all about learning from those who've done it first, moving into action quickly and ongoing testing like a mad scientist. James is kind, generous, thoughtful and one of the BEST networkers I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. It's a fun team, we get things done and are on the ground floor of something that has potential to grow big. If you're looking for a team that wants to try fresh ideas, have fun, while getting things done… this is it.” – Kevin Schouweiler
“Before I met James, I was stuck in a well paid but unfulfilling job. I wasn't sure where my life was going. In only 18 months, James's mentorship showed me different parts of his business. We experimented with different roles, and I found media outreach and writing to be the most rewarding. James taught me how to pitch journalists with engaging headlines and write engaging copy. He introduced me to other people in his network like Tai Lopez, who I also work for. I now freelance full-time and work from wherever I want in the world. I've written for publications like Business Insider, Fortune, The Huffington Post, Thought Catalog, Collective Hub, MindBodyGreen, and more. I create stuff that impacts the lives of other people. I have 100% control of my schedule which means more time for my son, exercise, and the little things which make a big difference to my happiness. Friends and family say I've transformed. I'm stronger, calmer, more positive and focused. Thanks, James!” – Steve Costello
