Ann Morgan James is a two time award winning marketer (Marketer of the Year and STAR Marketer of the Year), an author, speaker and Jack’s mom. In the third grade, Ann’s son Jack was dealt a devastating blow. He was bullied in school to the point of physical violence. His self-esteem was virtually non-existent. Ann knew she had to do something to help him.
As a marketing professional for more than 25 years Ann turned her talents for selling other people’s products to her son. She began selling her son bully proof self-esteem. She decided to help him start a business and through those efforts she rebuilt his confidence and self-worth.
Ann was amazed with the results. She realized she was teaching Jack the same millionaire mindsets her parents had taught her – Outlook, Attitude, Skills and Action. To help Jack, she defined six millionaire skills she needed to teach him: “Dream It”, “Believe It”, “Love It”, “Work It”, “Own It” and “Give It”. These six skills are now a philosophy she and Jack have adopted in life!
Ann has spent years volunteering and working with parents and kids. After her amazing experience with Jack she decided to share her millionaire skills with other parents and wrote her book, How to Raise a Millionaire.
She is also one of the featured entrepreneurs in Entrepreneur Success Stories: how common people achieve uncommon results, volume two edited by Loral Langemeier and John C. Robinson.
Aside from the credentials and awards Ann has earned, she is first and foremost, Jack’s Mom. Other parents will surely identify with her. With her challenges in her life; challenges she has faced down head-on and overcome, Ann has a story of hope and inspiration to tell.
Ann has one passion which drives her to overcome any bump in the road life throws her way; she is determined to teach her son Jack how to live the life of his dreams.
Ann is a native California girl who lives in San Jose with her son Jack, their three dogs, one parrot and every single Star Wars: The Clone Wars action figure known to man!
