James Newcomb and Sana Dorry: Partners in Business and in Life
We were married in January, 2020 in Taipei, Taiwan, and are currently going through the process of obtaining a visa for Sana to live in the United States. We began this business because of our shared love of teaching/coaching, communication, and enabling others to achieve their goals in their life and business.
James: I'm a professional musician. I spent 8 years employed by the U.S. Army as a trumpet player. As a civilian, I often perform in local symphony orchestras in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia. I have a 6 year old son who loves video games, playing on the beach, and is a borderline prodigious singer.
I became aware of the podcasting medium from Tom Woods in 2013-14, who's show I listened to every weekday. One day Tom had as a guest on his show John Lee Dumas, the host of the successful Entrepreneurs on Fire podcast, and it piqued my interest in getting into the game myself. I joined John's program Podcasters Paradise on January 1, 2015 and published my first episode of a show titled Outside the Music Box on March 15.
I immediately fell in love with the podcasting medium. I found opportunities to scratch my creative "itch" that are not possible as an instrumental musician. Whether it's designing graphics, honing interviewing skills, writing entertaining emails for the Beatin’ Path Media newsletter, or simply hearing others' amazing stories behind their business or passion in life, it's a very fulfilling and rewarding career.
Now that I've been around the block a few times, and have amassed a bit of knowledge on podcasting, business, marketing, and life in general, I'm excited to share what I've learned with others so they can be empowered to speak their own truth to the world.
