Jill James developed the Business Design Bootcamp, a strategic planning framework for founding CEOs centered on the right customers and strong foundational economics, which is a massive gap for most self-funded founders. Most founders also need and want elite accountability – a partnership with someone who can elevate their thinking and operations but respects their vision and growth as the CEO.

James commented, “I help self-funded business owners put a strategic, operational strategy in place, to make sure your financial decisions set you up to thrive, without having to sell, take on partners, or spend years figuring out everything by yourself. This is the journey of the self-funded business owner positioned for growth. And we bring the elite operational support, expertise, and sounding board to you. This allows you to keep your dream, let your business thrive, and know you do not need to make every decision alone. I help you move from founder to CEO.”
About Jill James
Jill James is the CEO and Founder of The Jill James, LLC, a consulting & coaching firm that transforms self-funded businesses into high-profit companies through strategic operating support
Originally from a small town in Wisconsin, Jill attended the University of Chicago, where she graduated with honors in political science. She then moved to New York to work in banking with J.P. Morgan and AXA Financial.
She returned to the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business to study finance, but switched to entrepreneurship, strategy, and marketing after a summer with a venture-backed startup. She’s held executive positions at early-stage technology companies in San Francisco and Los Angeles and served as an advisor to the media, marketing, and entrepreneurship program at the USC Annenberg school of communications.
In 2015, Jill realized work wasn’t working for her anymore. At seven months pregnant, she started The Jill James to help founders define success on their own terms. Her “twins”— her son and her company — have grown up together in Los Angeles and Valencia, Spain.
