"Perception is reality. If you are perceived to be someting, you might as well be it because that is the truth in people's minds."
As the eldest in a large family, James has a natural tendency to look out for the best interests of others and to lead by example. From a young age he has understood that perception creates reality. Whether it be mediating a family conflict or keeping open lines of communication with his clients, James knows that it is important to present himself in the way that he wishes to be viewed. Today James follows this by helping to create and maintain relationships built on trust, honesty and transparency with both clients and Strategic Partners. One of James’ favorite quotes delineates the importance of maintaining these qualities in both his business and his personal life:
“Perception is reality. If you are perceived to be something, you might as well be it because that’s the truth in people’s minds.” — Steve Young
