James has launched several businesses, had a successful exit, failed a ton, and grew 2 businesses over the $10m mark. 

 

Between his own businesses and consulting for others, he has been responsible for well over $250 million in small business revenue and several high six and low seven-figure launches.

 

James now helps business owners stay focused on strategy & growth by keeping them out of the “technician trap” and outsourcing the “grunt work”.

 

His personal mission is to do his best to live a “family now” lifestyle where work interrupts family and not the other way around where family “interrupts” work. 

 

He has two missions at Grunt Workers – one is to help marketing leaders launch more strategic and profitable campaigns than ever before… and the second is to support the career growth of brilliant marketers in the Philippines.
