Carol James | Company Profile


Our mission is to inspire, encourage and support people and businesses as they learn to express the fullness of who they are in relation to themselves, others, business, community and our planet.


Through the activities and philosophies of this organization, we intend to inspire, encourage and nurture society to move toward a heart-based lifestyle, which treats people with dignity, respect and love, and which co-exists in harmony with the natural environment. People will come to know themselves more intimately and become more connected to their inner guidance and knowing. They will reconnect to the joy in life as they align their profession with their own inner purpose and dreams in ways that foster self-expression, creativity and personal responsibility in an atmosphere of joy, respect and freedom. People will connect with others in supportive, nurturing and collaborative ways, while honoring and appreciating diversity. This will contribute to the creation of self-empowered people, prosperous economies and thriving local and global businesses and communities that embrace a deeper appreciation for our planet and all life.

Company History

Carol James, Founder and Owner of InspiredLiving.comOwner Carol James started her first business, a computer dealership, in 1985 to provide business development consulting and computerized accounting services to small companies. This was a continuation and expansion of the work she had been doing since 1977, working as an employee for other companies.

In 1990, Carol shifted the business focus to HR consulting and education in the areas of retention, employee and manager development, skills development, skill gap analysis, knowledge management, career development, curriculum management and training administration, working with many MIS and IT departments in Fortune 1000 corporations.

In the summer of 1996, the idea for an online community began to emerge and the site was launched in May, 1997 and is still growing and going strong (see overview below).

Returning to her roots in small business development consulting in 1998, Carol brought together her extensive sales, marketing, customer attraction and retention, business development, accounting, e-commerce, e-marketing, talent management, stress reduction and human potential expertise to help small business owners start or expand their company in ways that retained their personal passion and focus and enabled them to collaborate with talented people who shared their vision, mission and values.

In September, 2002, Carol began selling health-promoting products and added an extensive health section to her web site, which has grown to over 800 pages of content, newsletters and products that promote greater health and cleaner, safer home environments: electromagnetic field (EMF) protection, air purifiers, water filters, salt-free water softeners, skin care, hair care, dental care, body care, cosmetics, makeup, pain relief, nutritional supplements, far infrared portable saunas and devices, Himalayan salt products and lamps and more. Carol's web venture quickly turned into a full-time enterprise, which feeds her passion to help people to become their highest vision of themselves.
