In this podcast, James shares how he started his career in the corporate world in Sales and very quickly decided that he wanted to help others succeed more than just pursuing individual achievement. He then went into Sales management which unfortunately came with a pay cut, however, this led him to gain experience in becoming more of a coach and mentor to others, which he thoroughly enjoyed. When the day came where he was told his role was redundant, he decided to back himself and get into business doing what he was passionate about, even though this was a challenging time, as he had a young family and many financial obligations.
Over the years, James worked decided to focus on helping Mortgage brokers to improve and scale their business. He is a firm believer that when starting out, you’re best of just getting going sooner rather than later. As you progress and learn over time you can begin to plan your vision, structure your business and implement systems and try to refine your niche. James’ business is called ‘The Successful Adviser’ (www.thesuccessfuladviser.com) and he has a Facebook group called ‘Brokers Super Group’ specifically for Mortgage brokers.
