We’re pumped to have JAMES DIXON joining us today to talk about the explosive growth of his YouTube channel and how his motivational videos are affecting his community. With father figures becoming less and less prominent in minority communities, the wrong influences have filled those shoes. Now days, kids look up to YouTube channels, musicians, and actors. Join us today as we learn why a positive influence for todays kids is SO important.


In his own words: James Dixon, aka Supermanis4real, is a motivational speaker, author, and minister known for his high-energy speaking engagements. He is the KeynoteSpeaker on Absolute Motivation YouTube channel, and has worked with both Fortune 500 companies and professional sports organizations. 1.3 million subscribers have viewed his channel more than 110,000,000 times!

Quickly- I’m Scott Groves – Husband, Father, Loan Officer, Coach, Author, Podcaster, and Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I gave up boxing, where I was 5-0 in amateur fights, when I turned 40. BJJ is safer for old men than getting punched in the head 🙂

This podcast is paid for and brought to you by…. by me, Scott Groves 🙂

Because I think these kind of long form conversations are valuable, I pay for 100% of the production of this show out of my pocket. This channel is FAR from monetization and because of the subject matter, may never be monetized.

I am a Mortgage Loan Officer & Loan Officer Coach in real life. It’s the money that I earn, from helping home-buyers and home-owners obtain home-loans, that pays for this show. If you, your friends, or your family are looking for a home loan from an honest Loan Officer, please contact me at [email protected] or find all my links to connect HERE: www.LinkTr.ee/ScottLGroves

I can do the loan for you (our team is licensed in 8 states) – OR – I can refer you to an amazing loan officer in the state where you’re searching. ON WITH THE SHOW!!!
