Who is James Wedmore?

Zero to “Hi” in 60 Seconds!

This is the story of how a BROKE BARTENDER started a business around his passion for ONLINE VIDEO and Visual Storytelling, and how he now teaches digital entrepreneurs all over the World how to reach more people, make more money and have more fun!

Video + Strategy Mindset

I haven’t just been teaching video marketing to boldly ambitious online entrepreneurs for the past 9 years—I’ve been doing it myself for even longer (like ever since I got a hold of my mom’s hefty camcorder).

Armed with a degree from one of the top 10 film schools in the country, I have built a seven-figure business helping entrepreneurs leverage the (SERIOUS) power of online video and YouTube with such courses and programs like Video Traffic Academy and 48Hr Film School.

Starting in 2016, I massively shifted this focus to the big, glaring gap in the marketplace: the mindset needed for entrepreneurship.

Creating a Totally WOO-WOO Podcast!

I launched The Mind Your Business Podcast and my new signature program (Business By Design) to help other content creators, authors and coaches make their mark online and leave an impression that LASTS. I also curate a high-level mastermind called The Inner Circle.

And if you need a little name droppin’, I have been featured on sites you’ve probably heard of, like Entrepreneur.com, Rise to the Top, and Mixergy, and taught as an instructor on CreativeLive.

The bottom line? Building a multiple seven-figure business I run with my smarty pants wife, Chelsea, has given me the financial freedom to do exactly what I want (even when that means watching entirely too many reruns of How I Met Your Mother.)

My mission is simple: show business owners how to make serious cash doing what they’re good at, so all work and no play becomes all work is play.


Everything I do in my business (like making videos, teaching, and coaching) is FUN. Anything that isn’t fun I stop, drop, or delegate!

I believe one reason I haven’t experienced burnout of a plateau, is because I FIND THE FUN in everything I do!

I lead with PLAY. Surfing, skateboarding, hanging with my 16 month old nephew… my wife married a big Toys-R-Us (I don’t wanna grow up!) kid!

My “lifestyle” is about fun in and out of the business. I want to walk that talk every single day…

AND I want to invite YOU to do the same! Stop taking this business stuff so seriously! Enjoy the ride, and create your BUSINESS BY DESIGN.

My favorite books to bring you inspiration in BUSINESS…

and in LIFE!

“My business has grown over 300% to over $300,000 in revenue…”

“In my first year working with James, my business has grown over 300% to over $300,000 in revenue.

While the revenue growth has been amazing—what’s really awesome is that James is one of the few people that CARES. He shows up for his clients, he knows what he’s doing, and he’s humble.”

“Within 3 months of starting BBD, I hit nearly $20K in sales—with only 1400 people on my email list.”

“Less than 2 years ago, I left my 11-year career as an elementary teacher to pursue my dream of financial freedom & to spend more time with my family.

The problem was that I knew nothing about online business or marketing.

Even though I had invested over $10K in business training during my first year, I still felt confused & frustrated. I felt like I was playing a guessing game trying to put all these puzzle pieces together without seeing a picture of what it was supposed to look like in the end.

“I launched and made $20K in 10 days with my very first course.”

“As a cancer survivor, I learned how to build a support team to help me cope with cancer. But when I started building my online business, I was a support system of one.

I was working long hours, trying to do everything myself. And while I knew bits & pieces, I felt like I was lost at sea, desperately searching for a lighthouse.

With a push from James & the BBD community, I launched and made $20K in 10 days with my very first course, which was life-changing… and validated everything I was doing.”
