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 Encourage is all about, other than the obvious. Listen to my conversation with James and be surprised...and encouraged...by what you hear.
