Are you any of the following?
Startup Stella / Steve
You are starting (or planning to start) a new business venture and you want to get it right from the start and avoid expensive mistakes and losses later.
The jump from being employed, for so many years, to business is not a smooth journey…
You need clarity, confidence, support and handholding … especially the hand holding
Sammy / Samantha the Service provider
You are a service provider with a good product however you who is facing stiff competition and finding it surprisingly difficult to penetrate the market.
A winning strategy to turn things around is what you need…like yesterday.
Solo the Solopreneur
You are still a ‘one man’ show despite all your efforts. You want to run a ‘real business like the big boys … get more money and move out of survival mode….and have people working for you…
You are now ready to step up to the plate …
Paul/ Paula the Professional
Your practice is not growing and you are worried. The Cashflow has slowed down but the bills keep rising. Sometimes you feel it’s like you are working just to pay your suppliers and employees …. You cannot remember the last time you took a day off…
Fidelis the Financial services provider
Selling insurance, investment and financial products to the ‘Rising Middle Class’ is not easy anymore. They listen but don’t buy ….. At times you wonder where if you are really in the right business ….
Maggie the Multi-level marketer
You are in Multi-level marketing to stay …. But it is time consuming work and your teams need A LOT OF MOTIVATION.
Right now you feel drained and have slept for just a few hours …and you need that Uplift yourself ….
You desperately need a solution for dealing with overwhelm and time management … (and a day with 36 hours …24 hours are too few)
Irene the Importer
You travel a lot to Turkey and Dubai and bring in the best items for your many clients. Things are not too bad….. You have 3 outlets and are looking for space in a mall….
But you are also tired of these trips… They keep you away from your family and you are not available for your kids it feels like soooo much to deal with and sometimes you wonder if you are overdoing it ….
And you now need to get better organized. You need better systems and the right staff…
Growing Grace/ Graham
You are in the right business but things have slowed down and plateaued. Some of your good staff members have left or you fired them … You are not in a very good mood because it feels bad to have to start all over again …
Your business needs an injection and a dose of something to cure it of stagnation …and turn it around.

We deliver our promise. Here is what our Mentees have to say.
“One thing that I loved about Harness Your Brilliance® was the amount of clarity it gave me. James made me ask myself, “What transformation am I making?” This helped me see what my personal vision was. I also went through the Mentor for Profit program. Thanks to that, I now have two new mentorship programs. I now run an alumni program for my students who have graduated 3 times a year during the holidays which is heavily peer to peer driven. And I also started a new business; Breakthrough Parenting Solutions. And I also run a network of Christian Mums in Business. I feel alive and now I see more possibility everywhere I go. ”
“I was in such a bad place when I showed up for one of James’ free talks. When I sat down and began to listen to James speak, I couldn’t believe I took so long to attend one of his talks. He was speaking into what I was going through. I had worked in banking for 23 years and I was neck deep in debt. I. WAS.STUCK. After that free talk during the sign up opportunity for the Harness Your Brilliance® (HYB) course, I made my deposit immediately. I understood that to get out of debt the changes would be very deliberate and sometimes seem drastic. But it is for a season. By being more thoughtful and realistic in my expenses I saved more. By saving more I now had money I could invest and help yield a passive income. And with a passive income that meant more wealth generation. The tables slowly began to turn. Week by week, month by month I slowly began the change. I feel sorry for people who were associated with me before I met James. I was so negative, but now, there is nothing to complain about. HYB taught me how to be positive, seek solutions and now I see opportunities. I am open for these opportunities and I embrace them. I no longer let other people or events define who I am. I feel so alive and so confident now.”
“My desire to set up an online business was part of my plan to gain financial freedom. I wanted more flexibility to travel around the world while having an online business running. A colleague and I joined James’ Market with Confidence® course. We learned so much about marketing and how we could apply it to the online business. Many of the things people were discussing I had already gone through in operating my financial consulting business over the last 16 years and through personal experiences. As a result, I could contribute to the varied discussions and give suggestions as to how to handle the situations. It was nice that I could share of myself and give back to others. I enjoyed this as much as learning new things from James. He helped me realize why I respond to things the way I do. More importantly, he helped me discover a new passion “helping women in business handle issues with a woman’s perspective. James really helps bring out ideas you hadn’t thought about before.”
