Several years ago James Beeman was working in San Antonio, Texas and was so stressed out from his job that he had a headache every single day from clenching his jaw and grinding his teeth. In fact, the stress of his job kept him up at all hours of the night and began to negatively impact his personal relationships like his new marriage.

He was tired, he was miserable, and he began to think that he was hopeless.

James got his personal wakeup call when he ended up in the ER thinking he was having a stroke or a heart attack, because he was taking every conflict at work to heart and because he thought that every problem at work was all his fault. That’s what it took for him to change – to strike out in a new direction – a new career where he can help people who are miserable at work, find new life and joy.

By the way, James wasn’t crazy, when he quit his job, they hired three people to replace him!

My Why

I love watching others play to their strengths, stomp out self-defeating mindsets, leverage their positive emotions, take hold of their personal power, and wield it in ways that benefit themselves and others. I believe that love, or the ability to meaningfully connect with others, starts by more fully connecting with your emotions, thoughts, and responses, and that by sharing this sort of love with the world, hate and fear can be diminished. I believe in spreading and sharing goodness.

My Ideal Client

My ideal client is a person who is ready to make a significant change in their life or career. They are aware that they have to change in order to make this transition happen and are okay with being vulnerable or feeling uncomfortable in the process. They’re ready to go beyond simply being successful and achieving their goals, to becoming someone of significance who is ready to dream far outside of their own box and live a rich and meaningful life. They’re fully committed to making the changes necessary to make this a reality for them and are open to the timing of how it all comes to be for them.
