Career Experience –In 1991, James Miller decided he wanted a job where he could make good money and get a tan. He started working for a guttering company at 18, and by 21 was running the operations of that company with a team of 30 under him, all of whom were older than he was. The first year he ran the company, they brought in $750k, with an average job size of $350.
He has been a GC since 2001 and has managed and built several teams. He started his current company in 2011, and currently has 10 full-time and 2 part-time employees.
“If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.”
His Struggles – James has struggled with childhood trauma, head trash, lack of confidence, and massive debt.
What Qualifies James to be a Coach? –James spent 28 years making the same mistakes over and over – losing money, barely getting paid, getting paid last, etc. He lost a lot of money from 2018-2020, but then turned a corner. From Jan of 2020 to Jan of 2023, he paid back all of that debt, gave himself significant raises, got benefits for his team, and turned his company into a real business. He went to work on himself, investing hundreds of thousands of dollars and thousands of hours in getting out of his own way. He went from a negative, traumatized person with no hope, to a positive, outgoing, vibrant human being. Along the way, he learned how to help others see themselves differently, and find answers they didn’t know they were looking for.
Personal Life –James lives in NW Arkansas with his wife, Stephanie, of 20 years. He has two married children, and a teen still at home.
