James was promoted in mid July, since then he has prepared for completing the rest of this year on a high note. After James left Downers Grove, Jacob shared that, “he always had the right mind set for the business, it was minor things, and fine tuning that James needed to modify.” He is now using the tools he learned at Chicago Marketing, and he excited more then ever for his future in the industry.
