Scott James

“Resilience is a worthwhile pursuit.”

BusinessWeek named Scott as one of America’s Most Promising Social Entrepreneurs and Forbes Magazine profiled him as a Game Changer.

The products from his companies have been featured in publications as diverse as Oprah’s O Magazine, National Geographic, Parents Magazine, the Washington Post, Outside Magazine, and US News & World Report. His film projects range from the opening shorts at the United Nations Climate Change Summits (Producer Lyn Lear and Director Louie Schwartzberg) to the breakthrough nature-based series on Netflix (title series: “Moving Art”).

Scott was awarded a Governor’s Award of Excellence in Service by the state of Washington for his nonprofit community preparedness work. He was recently asked by FEMA to present his book at their national training symposium. It is available to purchase everywhere.

He previously worked in the high tech sector, including Visio and Microsoft, and completed degrees at Baylor University and University of Notre Dame. His training includes permacultureTransition TownsCERT, Wilderness First Responder, as well as mindful movement techniques such as MovNat, AcroYoga, and vinyasa yoga…all of which tend to be reflected in his work.

Scott does 1:1 sessions with top performers and small teams of senior thinkers, particularly among the social entrepreneurship tribe. You can learn more at He lives with his wife, children, and a very active Belgian Malinois on an island micro-farm in the Pacific Northwest. This is his first book.
