James Woosley

James Woosley-

James Woosley is an underachiever—only because he’s constantly expanding his potential by doing something amazing then immediately striving for more—knowing that his mind, body, and spirit have been stretched to a new level of possibilities.

As a business coach, consultant, publisher, and project manager, James helps people and organizations move ideas from the dreaming and planning stages to full implementation. He sets goals, plans strategically, and makes things happen…for himself and those around him. He is the author of Conquer the Entrepreneur’s Kryptonite: Simple Strategic Planning for You and Your Business and Challenge Accepted!: A Simple Strategy for Living Life on Purpose.

Beyond serving his clients, writing and publishing books, participating as a newcomer to athletic events (Spartan Races, charity bicycle rides, running for no good reason), sitting on the board of education in his hometown and on the executive committee for the state school board association, James is a dedicated husband to his high school sweetheart, Heather, and a doting father to his children, Anna and Ian.
