It's about time to raise your profile as a Business Analyst.

Welcome to the place where hidden Business Analysts unlock their highest potential and become visible.

Do you ever have ideas at work and wonder "Is it good enough to be shared?"

Your confidence is definitely not at it's best. Most days at work, you're staying in the shadows and feel overlooked. You're too busy overthinking everything to even think about the impact you could have in your company. You end every day feeling overlooked, burned out and empty.

The truth is you wish you could step up, run the project with confidence and show them who you really are capable of. You want to stop using perfectionism to hide, stop playing it small and start taking risks.

You are ready to take ownership of your life, your career so you can finally feel alive, acknowledged, belonging and inspired again.

Welcome to Confident Sage. I am glad you are here.


I am James Compton,

It's my mission to unlock your highest potential

Welcome to the space where ancient wisdom meets modern strategy. My journey has been anything but ordinary. From the tranquil halls of a monastery, where I spent years as a monk embracing the virtues of mindfulness and compassion, to the dynamic world of business analysis, where for two decades I’ve honed the art of transforming complex challenges into streamlined solutions.

My unique blend of experiences has taught me that at the heart of every successful project lies a profound understanding of human needs and aspirations.

As a former monk turned Business Analyst, I bring a serene yet strategic approach to navigating the ever-evolving business landscape. Let’s embark on a journey to unlock potential, foster innovation, and create enduring value.
