From Broke Bartender to 10 Million Dollar CEO: A Conversation with James Wedmore

Friend, let’s throw it back to 2016 when Queen B graced our ears with Lemonade, everyone was first crying their eyes out to This is Us, airpods just came out, and Hamilton swept the nation.

*Can you picture it?*

Well at the same time, I was making my first attempts at learning how to run a digital business. 

This was something I had *never* done before. Y'all it was 2016, not 1996, but I was straight up acting like my parents trying to work an iPhone!

Then walks in James Wedmore, my online guru who totally paved the path to where I am today. Let me tell y’all, his story is AMAZING and the lessons he taught me even more INCREDIBLE! 

In this episode James and I discuss: 

  • How to change from the employee mindset to the entrepreneur mindset 
  • How to view failure as success
  • How to let business be an extension of yourself
  • How to begin with your end goal in mind 

I might be a little biased but this episode is full of ALLLLLL the juicy goodness. For those of you who have been around the block with me, you know how much James has influenced my business and I can’t wait to share how we first met and about some of the first lessons I learned in my business. Join us by clicking play >>HERE<<.

For 10 years, James Wedmore taught entrepreneurs and online business owners how to leverage the power of online video and YouTube marketing to reach more people, share their message and convert more customers.

He launched a totally woo-woo podcast, the Mind Your Business Podcast and his signature program, Business By Design. Today he helps coaches, experts, content creators, and authors not only to craft better marketing messages but also how to ditch the “hustle” mentality and create success from the inside out.
