How to Build a “Family Now” Lifestyle as an Entrepreneur with James Zolman

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.
