theMightyMelanie ,

Nice mix of Science/phycology and woo woo

I have studied a lot of coaches and the thing I love about James is he makes everything simple and easy-going.
He says things like “it’s not a big deal”
“ it’s hard but it’s not a big deal”
“Its hard and simple” we pick a coach that thinks simple. Easy going & highly driven coach,- my favourite part of James

I love the people he interviews. 👏 Kind, simple, and “stop overthinking” and “you got this”. I'm so grateful for all the information, and it's incredible to be part of Business by design course. I love the course and the podcast is like bug bonus 🙌✨💖

PTgirl07 ,

Always inspiring

I look forward to my drive into work any time I get to listen to this podcast.

Michellesnowshoes ,

So helpful on both a personal and business level…

I love that this podcast has some very practical strategies to improve my own business. What I love more are the thought-provoking philosophies behind these teachings that help me examine my own purpose, motivation and decisions. These teachings have helped me to make a positive impact in my world, and I highly recommend this podcast to any entrepreneurs who are willing to examine their “inner business coach”
