"My passion is sowing increase into the lives of others" - James Holmes
I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and was blessed to have two dedicated parents who worked hard to provide for my siblings and me. I grew up well cared for but I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth as the son of a mechanic who is an awesome father and a stay at home mom. You see I wasn’t given any money, so I had to learn how to create my own money because I have BIG DREAMS. I grew up believing in the power of creative thought and self determination and I use these attributes to live an extraordinary life. I gained an understanding of how to translate this knowledge and way of living to other people.I am here to help you.
Welcome to my page “Who is James Holmes” designed to give you a better since of who I am, what I value and why I am so committed to helping others achieve their destiny and create a life worthy of their birthright.
My life experience have brought me to a deeply held mission for my like; to sow increase into the lives of others by co-creating wealth and abundance.
“You can have anything in life you want, if you just help enough other people get what they want." - Zig Ziglar
God blessed me with a true life partner and beautiful family that I love
I was raised in a large family with both parents, siblings, two sets of grandparents, lots of aunts uncles, and more cousins than I could count. My upbringing fostered in me a strong desire to have a family of my own and I trusted that God would bring the right person into my life in His time. When I met Wendy all of the pieces came together and we began a common journey to do our part to change the world. We are very much alike and we share a love of the arts, community service, our careers and family.
My daughters represent a great sense of pride for my wife and me
My daughters are a great source of pride on my life. I want to share with them as many lessons from my experiences as they will allow. I believe they will inherit a much different world then in my generation as they become adults and grow into their own power. I have really enjoyed watching them mature into responsible your women and I am proud of the choices they have made. My commitment to my family has allowed me to relate on a very personal level with the people I work with in my business.
My faith in God is a foundational aspect of who I am and my desire to serve
I was blessed in 1977 as a high school freshman to be introduced to the concept of having a personal relationship with God through acceptance of Jesus Christ as a personal Savior. When I heard the Gospel message it had a very profound and lasting impact on my life and has essentially dictated the way I have conducted my life since the day. I have faced plenty of chances and made less than the perfect choices a few times on my journey, but I have always been able to rely on my faith to bring me through difficult times.
My Christian faith also governs the way I treat others in my life. I have made choices in my career driven by my desire to exercise a form of servant leadership that has allowed me to help many achieve their dreams whether it be home ownership or success in their home based business. I don't make a big deal of my Christianity, because I believe that the greatest testimony one can give in that which can be observed by others. People are a lot more interested in how you conduct yourself and how you treat others rather than what you claim to be.
I have always been adventurous
I am not sure where this came from because all of my siblings are very conservative; I on the other hand love high speed high risk sports and over the past twenty-five years I have participated in a number of them ranging from driving race cars in the NASCAR Late Model Regional Series and American Indy Car Series, competing show horses in hunter – jumper equestrian events and racing on an elite amateur cycling team.
I had to learn how to effectively market to sponsors to indulge my passions
This is my NASCAR Late Model Stock Car which served as the perfect gateway into the American Indy Car Series. I owned this car and raised the funds to provide for my budget through corporate sponsorships. I had to learn how to market to value of exposure and measured impressions to a variety of companies. From the moment that I entered my first stock car race I had a dream of driving Indy Cars in competition.
There are few experiences that compare to driving race cars
After three years of climbing through the super stock, sportsman and late model stock car divisions my dream was achieved when I competed in the American Indy Car series. I still remember my heart was pounding as I sat on the grid waiting for the race to begin. I finished 9th that day and revised my dream to one day driving in the Indy 500. I did not get there but its often about the journey when climbing to the mountain top.
A different type of horse power, the kind with a mind of its own
It all started when I as a little kid; I always wanted a horse and I used to ask my parents to buy me one every birthday and Christmas holiday. I never did have that wish granted but it made for one of my best childhood memories. Whenever my dad need to run an errand that couldn't include me he would stay; "you stay here Jimmy, I am going to see a man about a horse" and of course I would comply without complaint.
This is Oberon a German bred Holsteiner that I competed on for two very successful seasons. I won a few blue ribbons on this wonderful horse and almost managed to get dumped a few times when he didn't particularly like my approach to the jumps. I learned a lot about horses and myself, I have grown to love the relationship between man and animal when working together for a commons set of objectives. I used to love spending long weekend days at the barn being with the horses grooming, riding, cleaning stahls whatever - just being at the barn.
Why don't you find a nice safe hobby?
My latest obsession is cycling and again I can trace this back to my childhood. When I was in Jr. High and High School I used to love watching the Red Zinger and Coors Classic bicycle races. I also used to race BMX bikes so its almost like I "book marketed" this passion until I had time to get back to it and man have I gotten back to it! I have been racing the past couple of years on an elite amateur team; I have celebrated the thrill of a few top ten finishes and the agony of a broker collar bone (come with the territory) and some pretty severe road rash. I believe that I will be riding horses and bikes into my nineties Lord willing. Its worth mentioning that my 85 year old grandmother recently asked me "why don't you find a nice safe hobby?"
I love the arts and have enjoyed expanding my vision by exploring the arts
My wife and I share a deep love of the arts and I presently serve on the board of the Denver Art Museum. Over the years I have served on numerous cultural and non-profit boards including the Denver Ballet, Denver Arts Culture and Film Foundation among others. I also am a past recipient of the Juanita Ross Gray Community Service Award. I truly believe in the statement; “to whom much has been given much is required.”
I have spent more than twenty-five years in the real estate and mortgage industry
I carry accreditation as both a Realtor and Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist. I figured after 25 years in the field I would retire as a real estate professional; that was before I discovered the home based business industry and online marketing as a vehicle to help people all over the world. I have used a number of business principals learned in real estate to build my business. I have helped to create several millionaires in real estate while helping thousands achieve the dream of home ownership. I am currently featured in an episode of the HGTV hit reality show “My First Place.”
I don't care about the odds
Although I respect statistics and coach my team members to know the numbers related to their businesses and measure the ratios that will appear from their marketing efforts, I have never allowed the odds to be the determining factor for a major decision and where people are concerned you can never measure what is in the heart of a man or women. Personal commitment and drive will always be a more accurate determining factor than the odds makers. I want to work with people who have a strong desire to succeed!
I have learned from many mentors
So how am I creating my success? I studied mindset, I sought out programs that had exceptional value and came from credible sources and I sought the guidance of mentors. I ask a lot of questions and once I made a decision to participate in a program or training I remained committed to provide myself with the greatest chance to succeed. In the beginning I measured correct activities, not results. I knew that if I consistently completed the correct activities my results would be exceptional and they have been.
I have learned from many mentors such as Eric Worre (pictured with me in the above photo), John Assaraf, Russell Brunson, Joe Schroeder, Diane Hochman, Josh Peak, and others in order to learn what I needed to learn and become what I needed to become to achieve my goals and share my knowledge and experiences with every person on my team with whom I have the privledge that I work.
“What the mind of a man can conceive and believe he can achieve.”
- Napoleon Hill
I knew that I would have to pay my dues and develop a track record of success and also prove to myself that I could teach another person how to do what I did to become successful. The success of this business does after all depend on duplication. You may have heard it said that it doesn't matter if it works, it matters if it duplicates and that is true.
I had to pay my dues
Perhaps like you, I had no idea how confusing this “simple” business of online marketing, network marketing and affiliate marketing could be. So many offers, promises, systems and gurus all promising to provide the “perfect program” guaranteed to make you millions by just signing up or buying their system. I was not easily seduced and can say that I have gotten value from 99% of the information products and training that I have acquired. I just as easily could have spent thousands of dollars by buying into the hype and I am not judgmental of those who have. I fortunately decided to take a business approach and made very good choices.
I am not saying that I haven't taken a few dead-end turns and fall into empty rabbit holes because I have, it is almost unavoidable. There is a formula to success on the internet and I assure you that it is more science than art. The internet is the great equalizer because it matters far more where you are going not where you have been and people care a lot more about whether or not you deliver value for them and conduct yourself with integrity. I love that!
I teach a duplicable system and invest myself in other people
I AM A New Media GURU, a Social Media Evangelist and a true coach and teacher. Duplication is the key to everything I advise. I remember the first time that I enrolled someone into my primary network marketing company and they turned to me and asked “what do I do now?” At that moment I made the decision to become a coach and trainer; I knew that my success was dependent on the success of those who enrolled with me and in order for me to achieve my goals; they would also need to achieve their goals.
I made a decision that I would not just seek to enroll other people into my primary or affiliates businesses; I would also create a system that duplicates and teach those who chose to engage everything I have learned and continue to learn about creating a “real” business and “meaningful” income in this industry. Those who join me and are willing to learn and work do make money. I only require that people be coach able, persistent and patient; I work best with those who are goal oriented and have a major purpose a “why” for being in this industry.
I coach on creating attraction and how to use the law of attraction to market your business. Once you understand how powerful attraction is and how to create it; you will be on your way to building a big business and a large residual income working with people that are like minded and action oriented. You will no longer need to chase prospects; they will find you, just like you found me.
I woke up one morning and asked of myself a simple question
After a year in the network marketing industry I had personally enrolled nearly forty people into my team which had grown to more than two hundred; far better than average in fact I had rank advanced to the position of Director with my company and had the privilege of presenting at many events including a couple of times at our large corporate conventions. The problem was that there were too many people being left behind because they couldn't make the warm market prospecting model and the three foot rule work for them. This is a common problem.
So one morning I woke up and of ask myself a simple question. Why aren't you using the power of the internet to build a global business and help others succeed? I wasn't taught that way, but I knew that I had to marry my desire to coach and train my team members with my knowledge and passion for marketing online.
I decided to look outside the box and to seek ways to leverage the internet to build a modern network marketing and affiliate business. I did my homework, invested thousands of dollars in my online education, I drew upon more than twelve years of experience of online marketing everything from auto-racing sponsorships to home mortgages online, I completed a very extensive "101 Day Business Growth Challenge" facilitated by the world renown professional coaching company "One Coach" and I was personally mentored by their CEO Mr. John Assaraf.
I now earn money every day online and I get paid whenever I recruit for my businesses regardless if my prospect joins my business or not; by the way I teach this system to everyone on my team that has the desire to succeed online. My system is built upon the simple idea of earning on every aspect of the momentum developed within my businesses.
People who work with me can expect to create between three to ten specific streams of income all tied to one or two non-competing primary businesses. That is how people become wealthy online, you build a marketing funnel that allows you to create maximum leverage and earn income nearly every day.
I am prepared to help you succeed
I am accessible to everyone on my team and everyone that I coach. I make my personal email and cell phone available so that I remain an email or telephone call away. If you are serious about building a successful online or home based business you MUST gather the tools and identify credible mentors that can help you achieve your goals and BUILD a LASTING BUSINESS.
My burning passion is to sow increase into the lives of others and I work personally with every member of my team who share my passion to succeed. I recognize that every one I work with is an individual with diverse skills, unique challenges and opportunities. I could charge thousands as a paid consultant, but I chose to provide my best for those who join my team or become a sub-affiliate, FREE OF CHARGE.
I am a real person, you can find me all over the internet; I don’t hide behind my computer and I remain accessible because this is a people business aided by technology, not the other way around. I offer a free thirty minute consultation to anyone who wants to call me. Call me to discuss where you want to be in your business, I can be reached Monday to Saturday 10am-10pm EST on my personal cell phone 303-523-9503 or toll free in the USA at 800-498-8715.
I wish for you God's blessing for success in all aspects of your life!
