HALEY JAMES

HI! HELLO & WELCOME! I'M

HALEY

JAMES

I’m a purpose-driven, multi-passionate entrepreneur, chronic illness & rare disease advocate, public speaker, 3x podcast host, healthy home interior designer, YouTuber, member of the creator economy.

While loving, connecting & supporting others has always been big for me, everything else I listed was not actually in the plan or on my radar at all; they came to be because I saw a need for that role to be filled because I had had that need myself. 

When I was in my early 20’s I got really sick and ended up on a feeding tube & plasma infusions to survive. I almost lost my life – and in the process of that, learned how much I not only wanted to live but wanted to LOVE the life I was living!

I felt so stuck though – in a place I didn’t want to be and definitely not feeling like I was living in alignment with who I felt I was as a person. So, I made a commitment to myself that as I worked to heal, I would also be working to do everything I could to make sure I was creating a life I truly loved!

Which brings us here, to this space with you, where I get to use the pain and lessons from my past, combined with my passions, to continue to find ways to live out my purpose and mission. My hope is that I can help you live out yours too!

Pain. Everyone has gone through pain at some point in their life. Start talking about pain and what causes pain in peoples lives, then for me it was and go into my story. pausing your dreams pausing the life you actually want but i want to help you press play. press play on your life we all have times where we feel like we want to (broad end goal) stuck in pause. that might be (list life circumstances). positive side of pain. looking for a change and dont know where to start or they know the end goal but not how to get there. what is not working for them and what do they want.

For me, that pain happened in my early 20’s when I got really sick and ended up on a feeding tube & plasma infusions to survive. I almost lost my life – and in the process of that, learned how much I not only wanted to live but wanted to LOVE the life I was living!

I felt so stuck though – in a place I didn’t want to be and definitely not feeling like I was not doing anything I was passionate about, didn’t feel  like i had purpose and definately felt like i wasnt making a positive impact. So, I made a commitment to myself that as I worked to heal, I would also be working to do everything I could to make sure I was creating a life where I was living out those things / fullof passion, purpose etc. excited to live!

Which brings us here, to this space with you, where I get to use the pain I’ve gone through and all I learned from it, combined with my passions, to continue to find ways to live out my purpose and help people as I go. My hope is that I can help you do the same! formula not unique to me but to others too framework or tool that could help others too.

Here's How I Can Help ↓

HERE’S A GIFT JUST FOR YOU, FROM ME! IT’S FREE!

Free Resources

Through my own journey, I’ve learned a lot – and I mean A LOT – from my mistakes, failures, and successes that have shaped my perspective and approach to how I live my life now. Whether it was learning to overcome & be empowered by my obstacles or trying to figure out my passion, purpose and what the heck to do with my life – I felt firsthand how hard it can be to navigate alone.

I don’t want you to go through that too, so I created various types of resources & tools that I wish I had had on my chronic illness journey and on my path to turning my pain into something helpful, meaningful and impactful. 

My hope is that through all these resources you will be inspired, empowered, and equipped to confidently move forward on your journey to creating a life you love filled with passion, purpose & positive impact!

If you have explored my page and content a bit, then you know I am big on creating platforms, projects, and places where people can own and share their stories as I truly believe that is where the magic in figuring out your passion, purpose & how you can make a positive impact starts. 

Here on the blog though, is my space where I share bits and pieces of my own stories in the form of my experiences, opinions, thoughts, lessons I’ve learned or am learning in the hopes that it will help to serve you on your journey, whatever that may be.

Speaking & Teaching!

Do you know the best way to make a meaningful connection and impact with people? It’s through stories—vulnerable, authentic, and genuine stories that connect us all on a deeper level.

Whether it’s chronic illness, passion, purpose, overcoming adversity, learning to own your story, or one of the other topics I speak on, I want to be here to help you put on an event, a seminar, a panel, a podcast—something that matters and can make a difference.

If you’re looking for someone to join you in creating a meaningful impact on your audience, I’d be honored to partner with you to change lives through the power of stories. Let’s connect and make a difference together!

Shop The Store

At my core, I am a creator. I love making things, but not just anything. I like making things that I think really matter and can make a difference in someone’s day, in their heart, in the world – and the things I create for my shop are no different.

From clothing to journals to games and accessories – everything you find in the shop has been intentionally created from how it’s made, the materials used, the words it says – all of it carefully chosen to bring you something that I hope will come to mean something to you too.

Someone Needs To
Hear Your Story

“Someone Needs To Hear Your Story” is a passion project and societal movement that revolves around the first step to healing your pain and creating a life you love which is empowering you to own and share your story!

Through street interviews conducted in the vibrant streets of the San Francisco Bay Area, I give people the platform and the mic to share their personal stories, hearts, and messages with the world.

My hope is that through this project, others will feel empowered to own and share their stories and see all the potential they and their stories hold in inspiring, guiding, and encouraging others who may be facing similar challenges – connecting all of us through our stories.

FROM ILLNESS COMES EMPOWERED RESILIENCE

Advocacy & Representation

You know I’m all about taking the hard things you go through in life and turning around and using your unique gifts and passions to find a way to make it easier for someone else going through it after you.

For me, that hardship has been chronic illness. If you can’t tell yet, I like to talk and use my voice (no matter how raspy it is!). One of the ways I use it is in trying to bring attention to issues and make positive societal and legislative changes on the issues I am passionate about.

From modeling with medical aids to meetings with members of Congress, chronic illness representation & advocacy is so important to me and you will often hear me talk about and share information, resources, and easy ways you can use your own voice, story, and gifts to get involved too!

Let's Work Together!

If you’re longing to be living a life you truly love, you’re not alone. I’ve been on a similar journey since rebuilding my life after chronic illness. Navigating the healthcare system, rare diseases, medical aids and the unknown was hard. Then getting in a better place and trying to figure out what to do with my life – that was hard too. 

If you resonate with one or both of those – you are not alone and it’s important you know that. I don’t want you to feel how I felt so I have created a variety of ways to help make sure you don’t, including things like 1:1 calls with me where we can figure things out together, monthly support groups and events where you can feel connected and filled up, and so much more!

Close-Knit Connection

The thing I love most about what I do is connecting with you! The internet though is large and there are a million voices all at once and while I love getting to add my voice to that mix through podcasts, youtube, instagram etc. – at my core I’m more of a personal gal – think Drew Barrymore on her show vibes – the crawl up on the couch with a warm cup of tea and getting close, personal, real, deep and honest – that is actually much more my jam. 

So as a way to do that through the internet – I created these 3 little spaces where we can more intentionally connect based on what serves you best! Whether that is talking about health and healing or chatting about passion, purpose & positive impact on my broadcast channels or getting all the updates, deals, free stuff, and personal life updates from me via my newsletter: The Bloom – I would love nothing more than to connect with you on 1, 2 or all 3 of these! I’ll save you a seat!

Putting what I preach into practice

my passion projects

I am such a believer in taking your pain – whatever that looks like in your life – and using your passions to help create a positive impact by preventing, alleviating, mitigating or eliminating that pain for others – and by doing so – fully stepping into your own purpose. I believe in it so firmly because I did it myself.

I didn’t have just one pain point though and I didn’t have just one passion or purpose or way I felt I could make a positive impact – so I created a variety of different ventures that I genuinely am so passionate and excited about! Each of them was created from a desire in my heart to help others so I would love for you to check them out and see if they serve you or could serve someone you love!
