Inviting James Brown to be a guest was kind of a no-brainer. He had me at “Encourage”! I love that word and all the positivity it evokes. I first met James when he was an executive at a Houston-based oil field services company. Little did I know that a few years later he would be taking a leap of faith to fulfill a long-held passion and start his own company. You might be wondering what a company called EncourageX is all about, other than the obvious. Listen to my conversation with James and be surprised…and encouraged…by what you hear. Then download the app on iTunes and start encouraging any and everyone you can think of. As we navigate these tumultuous times, we can all use a little encouragement along the way.
