How to Be Your Own Best Consultant in Business & in Life

Interview with James Layfield

Serial entrepreneur and innovation catalyst, James Layfield is the Founder & CEO of Blackbox, of Never Ever Limited, and of Central Working. He also serves as the Tech Ambassador for the Mayor of London and early in his career worked with Richard Branson. Prior to seeing the connection of state-of-mind and his performance as a leader, he was often drained and bogged down by success. In this episode James talks about the difference between being successful and struggling vs being successful and peaceful and how our struggles can be in our blindspot and have a major downside. James also shares how he had to learn the hard way not to let his emotional reactions lead in his business decisions or relationships. Seeing this has helped him create strong teams and scale his businesses. After this episode, you will be inspired to be your own consultant.
