I’m proud of my clients’ success.

Read the stories of some of the incredible people who once stood where you’re standing now—and have found their path to fulfillment in their careers.

  • From the very beginning, James showed a genuine interest in my aspirations and took the time to listen to my concerns and challenges. His attentive and supportive approach created a comfortable space for me to express my thoughts and fears, knowing that he was there to guide me through the process.

    Throughout our sessions, James consistently displayed a high level of professionalism and dedication. He was always available to answer my questions, provide feedback, and offer valuable resources. His personalized approach made me feel like I was his top priority, and he never hesitated to go the extra mile to ensure my success.

    I wholeheartedly recommend James to anyone seeking a career coach who truly cares about their clients’ success. His expertise, attentive nature, and commitment to finding the best solutions make him an exceptional career coach. Working with him was a transformative experience, and I am grateful to continue to have him by my side.

  • I was approached by James after being laid off from a long career in telecom. We had a great first meeting and he was very clear to keep an open mindset and that there was no cost for exploring the career journey. It was great to learn about my personality/career assessments and to discuss possible franchisees that might align with my results. Even though I did not move forward with a franchise, I valued James interest in me and enjoyed our Zoom calls. I would highly recommend James!

  • I highly recommend speaking with James. His passion for helping others achieve their goals, combined with his extensive experience and expertise, makes him an exceptional coach. He is very easy going and patient. I enjoyed our conversations and getting guidance to help me navigate and achieve my personal and professional goals.

  • I had the opportunity to work with James during my job search in early 2022. He is a wonderful man who listens, raises good questions, and helps to get the crux of what an individual wants in his or her career. Above all else he is a good human who truly cares about his “clients” and their success. He is soft spoken, intelligent and insightful without being pushy or having an agenda of his own. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    Amy S. Atlanta, GA
  • James is an excellent career coach that helped expand my awareness of the possibilities that were available to me. After an extended nearly 3-decade career in the military, I needed coaching assistance from someone who was more interested in my success than trying to force me to accept a few narrow options. I really looked forward to our coaching sessions and would recommend James for anyone desiring to discover which career opportunities will make best use of your natural strengths as a growing professional.

  • My experience with James, was life changing.  His ability to ask the right questions and really listen to your wants and needs, helps guide the process.  I would recommend anyone who is looking to better understand their career path, to seek James out.  The great part is you get out of the interaction what you are willing to put in.

    Delbert- Las Vegas, NV
  • In contemplating the next step in my career, I met with James Schrage to discuss possible franchise opportunities. As like many, I’ve completed career assessments as requested by an employer but had not contemplated the value of a career assessment as I launch a search. Although I chose not to move forward with a franchise, James was curious, asked thought-provoking questions, and as a result provided an interesting perspective on career opportunities. Thank you James for your guidance!

  • James is very influential individual. James takes the time to listen and build a relationship with his clients. James has helped me through a very difficult time in my career by providing guidance through motivation and challenging me to ask the hard questions. I was in a situation where I wanted more from my career to ultimately provide a better life for me and my family, but I was grounded by Fear. James has helped me stay confident and ready to face that Fear with challenging my mindset with the accomplishments that I have already achieved in my career.

    James D. – New Business Owner
  • James is an awesome knowledgeable friend! For over 8 weeks, James and I have spoken weekly and he was immensely helpful in helping me find my way to freedom. James provided assistance in establishing a primary aim in life, addressing my personal fears, so much more & in the process became a true friend…one that sincerely cares. James will ask thought provoking questions that only an individual can answer. I am blessed beyond measure to have met James and worked with him. Simply put…James cares!

    Anthony W. – Started a New Business

My experience dealing with James has been enlightening, enjoyable, and has inspired me with determination and hope for the future. These are tough times. It’s great to realize that there are people like James that truly care about their clients. His personable and friendly approach in the way that he has interacted with me has been awesome. If you have an opportunity to deal with James, I suggest you capitalize on it.”

    Joel R- Boise, ID
  • “For anyone who is looking to learn more about themselves or curious about changing careers, speaking with James Schrage is a must. James helped me learn about myself and what type of work/people I do well with professionally. While we didn’t complete all our sessions, I cannot stress enough how helpful it was to speak with James. I look at the world and people in a new light that helps me communicate and work in a much more effective and efficient way. Thank you James for everything you did for me!”

    Ryan H.- Gained Clarity About Career Path.
  • “I worked with James for roughly a month’s time. The process we went through was very thorough and made me stand back and evaluate my current career path. James asked great questions and I truly enjoyed our Zoom meetings. If you are looking for a Career Ownership Coach, I would highly recommend James Schrage.”


    -Michael C, Chose to Stay on His Career Path
  • “I started with just me and one truck, working out of my garage. I now have four employees, and I am in a commercial space. The earnings potential is pretty well limitless at this point. I am busy. I do have to spend time away from my family just as I did before. But now, if I want to stay home and cook my kids breakfast, I can. On nice sunny days, if I want to cut out early to take the kids swimming, I do. I don’t just have weekends to choose from anymore.”

    BRANDEN BOWDEN, New Business Owner
  • “After working as an executive in the Detroit area, I found myself at a crossroads. At the age of 64, many people are looking to wind down; but I was starting a whole new adventure. I considered taking another shot at the day-to-day corporate grind. I tried to find another position, but my wife and I have always dreamed of owning our own business, so we began to examine the possibilities. That’s when I found The Entrepreneur’s Source®. I feel my coach has developed his communication skills which allow him to listen with true empathy and I completely trusted The Entrepreneur’s Source process. Now I feel I have personal value in my work. I am loving being a business owner and can see the impact it can have on others. The Entrepreneur’s Source has a great process to help you explore self-sufficiency.”

    RICK WEAVER, New Business Owner
  • “I was traveling across the country working in corporate sales and one day I realized that I didn’t want to travel anymore! That’s when I began to think about owning my own business. I began working with my Career Ownership Coach who helped me begin my Journey of Discovery. For me, it was a great process. I was learning about what excited and motivated me, but also what didn’t! That was just as important. I am so happy I went on the “journey,” and was also happy to have my coach along with me. He was a very good listener. He was genuinely interested in my long-term success. and he challenged me to see some things I didn’t even see in myself.”

    LEE PUTNAM, New Business Owner
  • “I had worked for 15 years in the world of corporate finance when I was forced to make a sudden exit. I had always thought to myself, I have this great corporate job, I’m on easy street. But I was really in the wrong place at the wrong time. I had no control over my own destiny. My Career Ownership Coach helped me take a close look at Franchising to achieve self-sufficiency.  Franchising was a better choice for me rather than starting a business from the ground up. I have a good sense of how things should run and customer service but I tend not to be strong on the sales side and frankly, I am not the stereotypical idea-man. A franchise is giving you the playbook, and you have a product. In my mind a lot of the basics have been built, you just need to follow the proven system. When friends are approaching those exit ramps in life, the first thing I tell them to do is to connect with a Career Ownership Coach at The Entrepreneur’s source.”

    ANDREW BROWN, New Business Owner
  • “The first time I met with my coach, I didn’t think I would walk out with a popcorn stand…Throughout my career, I never once dreamed I’d be in the place I’m in now. I thank E-Source for helping guide me.”

    BILL BENTZ, New Business Owner
  • “Being an entrepreneur was always an idea in my head, but to be honest, I thought when I got to the point in my life that I had a family, that that ship had sailed. My wife and I met with our Career Ownership Coach and found The Entrepreneur’s Source® to be a valuable tool throughout our discovery process. Now, as a business owner I have not only raised nearly $1 million dollars for schools in my community, but I work hard, and I get the flexibility to do what I want to do when I want to do it.”
