Hi, I am James Pruitt, the owner and founder of Life’s Hope Media. I started Life’s Hope Media as an online content publishing company in 2012 to help people with the major challenges that are keeping them from living life to the fullest.
Aside from the blog here, I also run my personal blog and podcast at www.Jamesmpruitt.com, and a site for families of disabled kids at www.disabledlifestyle.com
I started my first online business in 2008, but was devastated after the panda and penguin updates from Google. When I first started my online business, I got caught up in what I thought was the strategies that would lead me to success.
Sadly, it devastated my company and I wound up having to start over from scratch. In 2012, I started up Life’s Hope Media, but then my life took an unexpected turn.
I got engaged, and my fiance found out a few weeks later that she was pregnant. I was going to be a dad.
I can’t tell you how excited I was, but nervous at the same time. I had never really thought about having kids, and here I was about to jump into fatherhood while I was trying to build up a business.
Then, things took a turn for the worse. In Feb. of 2013, we went in for a routine sonogram, and found out that our daughter would have a brain malformation. Life was full of uncertainty at that point. We didn’t know what was going to happen.
In July, my daughter was born, and she has done pretty well since then, considering the brain issuses. She has severe developmental delays, and is growing very slowly, but otherwise, she does pretty well.
However, having a disabled child came with a whole bunch of challenges I didn’t expect. So, my wife and I made the hard decision to put the business to the side for a while, and go back to work.
But, I never gave up on my dreams. Then, in 2016, I started feeling the pull to get back to work on my business. Since then, I have been traveling the web, exploring all the latest advances in content development, and learning better ways to create and share content online.
I decided to start my blog and podcast to share my explorations, and help others learn from the mistakes I had made in the past.
This blog and podcast are my way of doccumenting my own journey, and sharing what is working for me and what isn’t.
Follow along, and let’s enjoy this journey together.
