We had the good fortune of connecting with Mike James and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mike, is there something you believe many others might not?
I completely disagree with the notion that nothing comes to a sleeper but a dream. There is plenty that comes to a sleeper, with one of the main things being rest. That is where your body, mind, and soul recovers from all the stress and strain you put it under on a daily basis.

What should our readers know about your business?
I’m the founder and owner of P&Z Life Coaching. I partner with those who feel stuck or lost to unlock their power and gain their 5Cs. That is they become capable, competent, confident, conscious and courageous to achieve greatness. A few years ago I started to ask how I could offer more for people beyond personal training, which was my career at the time. I wanted to provide support beyond the physical. I did my research and realized that I could affect people in all aspects of life through life coaching. The biggest challenge for me was actually getting started. Most people want everything to be near perfect before they venture into something new, but you have to be careful not to get caught up into the paralysis of analysis. Instead of waiting for everything to be perfect, just get started and trust that when you follow your passion… The Universe will align to give you what you want, will, and work for. I continue to grow everyday and realize that every single individual alive today is unique in their own way. So there is no single approach to whatever success looks like for you.
I just want people to know that my brand is built from my story. I’m the youngest of 11 children born to the late, great Prince & Izola James. I credit much of who I am to my parents and siblings, which is why I named my business after my parents’ initials. P(Prince) & Z(Izola) Life Coaching. My personal mission is to share my light, love, and positivity with as many people as I can in the time and space that I have.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Being a Birmingham, Alabama resident, I must say that the entire area is an adventure for me. I look forward to the next time I can visit, which will now be easier since I family in the area now. I think the climate alone is to be desired.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would love to give a shout out to Javonne Steward Wallace out of Houston Texas. She is an amazing inspiration that has embodied everything it takes to be a successful person in her brand No Excuse Today. She has also authored two books that are very inspirational.
