    James Dixon

    James Dixon

    James Dixon's life has been marked by immense hardship since his early life growing up in the notorious Cabrini Green neighborhood in Chicago. A catastrophic accident left him paralyzed from the neck down, and the daily struggles of caring for him became too much for his overwhelmed mother who subsequently signed over her parental rights, leaving him essentially orphaned. This daunting experience pushed young James to the edge, instigating him to contemplate suicide at such a tender age. He spent his nights reflecting on his situation through a mirror on the ceiling placed there to foster communication due to his paralysis. The trials continued one morning when he woke to find his leg had been amputated, an act done without his prior knowledge or consent, pushing him further into a realm of fear and uncertainty. James entered his 11th birthday confronted with a grim reality - he had lost his mobility, his family and now his leg, making for an extraordinarily challenging childhood. Despite the adversities he faced, James Dixon stands as a testament to human resilience, embodying a remarkable story of survival and strength.

Absolutely LOVE This Show!

OMGosh - the episode with Ryan Tate and the work he does with VETPAW.org utilizing veterans to help protect African wildlife was remarkable. I was touched and inspired to learn about it and loved the platform Steve provided through his delightful and thought-provoking podcast.

I really enjoy hearing Steve as he shoots from the hip...and in a world that craves authenticity these days...that goes a long way in my book. Steve is passionate, smart as a whip, and does a magnificent job with his marketing and memorable branding so one can learn a lot from him! Oh - and I dig his accent too! I could listen to him all day.

I highly recommend this podcast to anyone wishing to be fired up in business and life!
