Are you looking to transition into the next chapter of your life? Maybe it’s a new career, starting a business or finally listening to that feeling that’s been telling you you’re meant for something more, something different — for years. Certified High Performance Coach James Williams (and Emily’s husband and business partner) is here to share his own journey from a 12-year career in TV to becoming a coach. He’s reveals how he finally moved forward with his dreams and went from extrinsic validation to finding happiness within. He also touches on what it’s like to be a man married to a driven woman and how that dynamic — a different one to what most of us grew up — requires transformation on both parts. Emily and James also speak on their own relationship and the work they’ve done to drop resentment and learn how to work together and build a stronger marriage while remaining individuals and still putting themselves first. If you’re moving forward with a big dream this episode is for you.

During this episode, we’re going to cover…

  • How to drop the “how” and move forward with your dreams despite not having all the answers
  • Why putting you first is the key to serving the world (and creating successful relationships)
  • How to handle the naysayers in your life (especially if one’s your romantic partner)
  • The power of surrounding yourself with people who inspire you when you’re making a change and what to look for
  • Some of the top practices and learnings from being a couple working together and from our year working with our relationship coach

One of my favorite quotes from this episode is this:

“We were born with an imagination so that we could think of things that were outside reality, outside what we’ve experienced in our life. Like I said, flying to the moon, it’s not something anyone had ever done before, so how could you imagine what it’d be like? Just fly there and find out and figure out as you go.” – James Williams


After 12 years working in TV graphics, James could no longer ignore the feeling that he had more to give — and it wasn’t in the industry he found himself. He left TV to join his wife Emily in her personal development business and studied to become a Certified High Performance Coach through the High Performance Institute created by Brendon Burchard. James integrated his coaching into the programs at I Heart My Life, hosting teleclasses, co-hosting events and providing one on one coaching through his High Performance Program. James has now expanded his coaching onto a group High Performance program and is following a passion to work with couples who wish to raise their level of performance and potential together.

If you’re truly ready to create a life better than your dreams, then it’s time to talk about the concept of visualization. What is visualization? It’s when you paint a picture in your mind of what you want your life to LOOK like, but also, focus on the other senses too to make it as […]

Do you remember the last time your life took a total 180?  Perhaps it was the time you moved to a brand new home (or city), welcomed a new family member, or quit your full-time job to finally pursue your true passion. Or maybe it was a more sudden, shocking, or sad type of change, […]
