James Sowers

Sales and Marketing Consultant


Please provide a personal bio for other members to get to know you

I'm a sales and marketing consultant who helps run a few digital product companies by day and tinkers on content/service businesses on nights and weekends.

My main gig is a 1099 contract role as a Product Manager, but I also do some freelancing and consulting on the side. I'm also trying to diversify my income with side projects and other creative experiments.

I live in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, with my wife, our daughter Aubrey, a chocolate lab and an ornery cat. Spending time with them is the best part of my day.

If you're into 1.) You're a sales and marketing enthusiast.

I like to discuss all things related to business growth. Content, email, automation, analytics, direct sales, inbound, outbound - all the things. If you want to geek out on marketing stuff, I'm your guy.

2.) You're a freelancer, consultant, or agency owner

At various points in my career, I've had all three of these titles on my resume. If you're in the same boat and looking for a peer to talk shop with, my inbox is always open.

3.) You're a founder of a bootstrapped company.

One of my side projects is a website dedicated to serving and supporting bootstrapped founders. If I can help you overcome a business challenge or exceed your growth goals, please reach out.

4.) You're into sales, marketing, entrepreneurship, personal development, fitness, golf, fantasy football, video games, or craft beer, you should shoot me an email or DM so we can get to know each other better!

Please provide an overview of the project(s) you'll be focusing on for the next 12 weeks as part of Unreal Collective.

Still trying to find that personal project with #traction, but I'd love to learn about what others are working on and apply those lessons to the products I manage for my day job.
