My name is Jeremy Hobbs Reisig aka brotha James. I’m from a small town in Northern Michigan where my mom, my dad, my brother, and I have lived for over 30 years.

I’m a husband, musician, brother, son and lover of life.

My childhood was packed with sports, family, friends, and getting into trouble. I was adventurous to say the least and I’m grateful I had a mom and a dad who supported me through the challenging times

At 20 years old, I found my first real job, and by the age of 21, I was a top salesperson for Vector Marketing, the marketing arm of Cutco Knives. Over a 15-year career, I sold over $2,000,000 in Cutco Products and gave countless trainings, motivational talks, and coaching sessions. I am forever grateful for my Cutco/Vector experience.
In 2006 I joined a band called “The Weatherly Band”, my time with that band led me to another band. A band called FUNKTION. I joined the band FUNKTION in 2009, and over the next four years, we toured roughly 150 days a year and played shows in over 25 states. It was a 7 pc FUNK, SOUL, GROOVE band. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life.

In 2014 I decided to become a singer-songwriter, produce albums, and tour the country. Over the past 8 years, I’ve toured the country and written 30 songs that have been mixed, mastered, and available for streaming. I’ve written custom songs for Keller Williams International, Go Bundance, Front Row Foundation, and many more.

As I found my niche in music, I started playing at corporate events where I was brought in to increase the energy, engagement, and creativity that was unlocked in the room.

Through my experience of playing music at corporate events, I met Jon Berghoff, the Founder of XCHANGE. Jon was the first real facilitator I had ever met. I became interested in becoming a facilitator because I could see that what Jon was doing was both powerful and paired very nicely with the music I was bringing into the events.

I got trained in the XCHANGE Approach, an Approach for Initiating, Designing, and Facilitating group experiences that Unlock Potential at Scale.

Over the past decade, I have spoken at, designed, and facilitated over 1,000 meetings, workshops, trainings, and events for companies, communities, schools, and large groups of entrepreneurs using the XCHANGE Approach.

Through the pandemic, I became a ninja facilitator for Online events.

I work closely with my clients to understand their unique needs and objectives so that we can develop an agenda that is comprehensive, creative, and flexible enough to meet the needs of each individual participant and for the participant to enjoy themselves along the way.
