In this episode James opens up about his journey to create balance while living life as a husband, father and boss. Listen to how he overcame the need to do everything on his own, learned to invest in team and embrace his role as a visionary committed to service. 

More about James: he is the proud husband to Erika and father of two precious girls, Niobi & Cairo. Additionally, James is the majority owner of BakerStreet Steakhouse, The Hoppy Gnome, Gnometown Brewing Co., & Proximo. Born and raised in Fort Wayne, IN, James majored in Electrical Engineering at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN.

While very engaged with the success of his restaurants, James’ truest passion lies in helping others. James donates much of his time and resources to a multitude of local charities and individuals to help meet the more critical needs of the members of our community through mentorships and Board participation.

If you’re listening and could use some expert consultative advice in accounting, human resources and concept development go to and drop James and his team a message.

Also be sure to add ClockWork by Mike Michalowicz to your business library as a complimentary resource to this episode and as a catalyst for your #bossformation.
