Do you want to boost your confidence, get unstuck and start working toward a new future?


Let me tell you about a rock star named Danielle…

After just 5 weeks of working with me 1:1, Danielle launched her dream of being a health and wellness coach, “…helping her tribe achieve their optimal health and wellness goals holistically and authentically.”

Ahhhh! I did the THING!!! If it weren’t for you showing me my strengths and bringing out my confidence, I would have NEVER done this! Thank you!

Danielle’s story can be your story.

Danielle is a wife and mother of two energetic boys, works a steady job, is working on getting her degree, and she found a way to start her dream business doing what so many people only dream about. She’s making it happen.

The question I have for you is… are you ready to do the same?

If your answer is “Yes!” then I want to help you get started by giving you the foundation you need for future success.

Except for the fact that right about now you’re focusing on one or more of these obstacles:

  1. You don’t know how to begin. The good news is you’re not alone. Most people feel this way because formal education prepares you for what you do, but not how. So you’re left with a bunch of questions. Those questions lead to doubts and self-limiting beliefs. And then those doubts and beliefs lead to fear – and that’s where most people quit. They quit before they ever begin. This doesn’t have to be your story.
  2. You lack the confidence you need for success. Give yourself a break, it’s not your fault. It’s likely that you’ve never had anyone help you understand why you are the way you are. You think and see things differently than others. Depending on your family, friends and co-workers, this has either been a positive – or a negative – experience for you. I’ll help you to not only understand your gifts, but I’ll give you practical ways to maximize them.
  3. You lack the resources you need. Money. Time. Connections. While these are all very real, your mindset may be fooling you into believing false truths that you’ll never have them or, at least, they’ll take far too long to overcome. Want in on a little secret? These are nothing more than excuses. I know, that’s hard to hear. But so many people kill their dreams before they ever begin based on FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real). I’ll help you switch from a scarcity mindset to a growth mindset.


So does this sound like you? Do you feel unsure, stuck, struggle with confidence, or feel like there’s something more you could (should) be doing with your life?

The truth about these challenges, however, is that they are just symptoms of a lack of awareness you have about yourself.

You can overcome these struggles and I want to help you get started for free.

How can I know that coaching is right for me?

Actually, performance coaching isn’t for everyone. Because we’ll be working closely in a 1:1 session by phone it’s important that we’re a good fit. I work with men and women who are:

  1. Motivated to achieve excellence. I work with high achievers who are stuck, but aren’t afraid to chase – and become – excellent.
  2. Willing to be honest with yourself. To achieve excellence, you’ll need to embrace being 100% honest with yourself. As your coach, my job is to get you where you want to go. Sometimes you’ll have to tackle some misguided beliefs about yourself. As long as you’ll commit to being honest with yourself, you’re going to nail it.
  3. Ready to be challenged to grow. After all, that’s what this is all about… creating a life that you don’t need a vacation from. If you’re willing, I’ll meet you there!


Get started for free.

Most people have never worked with a professional coach so it can be intimidating to know if you’re ready to invest in coaching.

That’s why I make time to visit with you so you can get a clear picture of what we’ll cover. Our first call is about getting to know each other and to is designed to help you:

  • Get clear about your short term and longer term goals
  • Identify what obstacles are preventing you from getting unstuck
  • Feel optimistic, motivated and confident about your next steps to move you closer to your goal

Coaching helps people unlock their future. And for me, it’s exciting to see people’s confidence soar as they launch new businesses, receive promotions at work, work in their strengths and become better leaders.

You taught me that I am capable of having amazing ideas, helped me channel my strengths, and taught me to not apologize for being who I am. ‘Covering confidence with humility’ is one of the most insightful things that anyone has ever told me. The things that I have learned about myself would be impossible to put a price tag on.

Here’s what others have said:


You have shown me that anything is possible, if I want it, go get it….the only thing that’s holding me back is myself and I feel like I’m really pushing through that!  THANK YOU!!!!  Thank you for helping me find my strengths and the things that are most important to me.


Health and Wellness Coach, Holistic Hippie

I was at the point in my life that I was ready to do something different. I was a great starter but my finish was lacking. I wasn’t sure if coaching would actually help me or would I go back to my old self, but James spoke truth into my process. I was more clear on the steps I need to take and also what was holding me back.


Small Business Owner

I knew coaching was going to force me to recognize and admit my own failings out loud, which is never easy. But it was an upbeat, positive experience with open, honest conversation in a non-threatening environment. Coaching with James helped me to come up with achievable, actionable items.


Marketing Director

I have been reading a lot about how one on one coaching is a big factor in improving leadership. As leaders we don’t spend much time reflecting on our individual leadership skills – where we are and where we want to go… so to set aside time to pay particular attention to this facet was invaluable to me.


Educator, Vinton-Shellsburg Community School District

I am truly grateful to have had Jim’s expertise and insights to help me figure out where I am headed and what I need to do to implement my plans.  This is the first time I’ve hired a coach, and it is one of the BEST investments I’ve ever made.  Jim has a true gift when it comes to coaching and I highly recommend his services.


Business Owner, Speaker, Author, Dr. Barbara Fox

There was benefit in talking to someone outside of my industry. The questions helped uncover possible needs in my life. My goal was to be better in many areas, and the questions got me there.
