James Tarantin is a philosopher, game architect, American businessman, speaker, and author.
His family heritage begins with his paternal grandparents who after losing all their children were told by a doctor that they will never be able to have a child. Despite this awful decree, no ceiling would defer their dreams.
His grandfather fasted while his lips spilled words of prayer. To the amazement of many, wishes do come true; nine months later, a son was born, David.
James’ father, David, was born into deep poverty where the pots and pans did not serve to cook food, but to hold the raindrops dripping from the sky. He braved the cold and the scorching heat and through the sheer powers of humor, humility and heart … he carried his family up the mountain.
Meanwhile, James’ mother grew up as an orphan raising her only sister alone. Her hope for a little home of her own materialized when she married David and her son, James, was born. She would invest her savings for his education and devote her time to teach him the meanings of Self-Reliance, Wisdom and Generosity towards every member of the human family.
His parents share unconditional love and an abiding faith in the possibilities for their son. Because in a giving world, no barrier, neither your birthplace nor your mother tongue, should block your potential.
Often James would recite the words of Isaac Newton, grateful to his parents: “If I have ever seen farther, it is by standing on the Shoulders of Giants.”
Despite the many difficulties which present themselves to many students, James learned that if one is to quit on him or herself, then he or she quits also on his family, country and the future of others. Even as a teenager, James almost never went clubbing. He developed a passion for reading Constitutions. And when he was 21 he wrote a Constitution which serves as a road map for success. He published it at the age of 25.
At the age of 16, James’ loving, young aunt passed away in a tragic manner before accomplishing her dreams. This heartbreaking event inspired him to do deep research for six months and travel to Rome to discover an Equation that will provide people with a science of accomplishment and a power to reach happiness.
Being only a teenager, he could not publish his philosophical work. At age 25, from 9/22/10 – 12/25/10, he handwrote the entire book and then published it.
The Equation book lets people express their dreams and explores a rich array of issues such as Family Life, History, Philosophy, Human Evolution, Personal Success, Enterprises, Spirituality, Moral Business Conduct, Pragmatism, and The Universe.
James is one of the youngest modern thinkers to actually author a philosophical book, at the age of 25, in English which is not his native tongue. And with no training in writing, James became one of the youngest authors in history to write a memoir.
The Equation book is one of the few memories ever written to give people a groundbreaking Equation on which to climb up.
While still a teenager, James set sail to Asia, Europe and the Americas to experience other cultures; an innocent search for self and a higher purpose.
His belief in people grew ever-larger. When he reached poverty, a wealthy man gave him some coins. When he had no health insurance for years, doctors would treat him free of charge. When his family was miles away, a perfect stranger extended hospitality. When he encountered the famous painting of George Washington Crossing the Delaware, he saw purpose and a new hope. In the words of Ghandi, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
James arrived to Los Angeles, California at the age of 21.
James’ family heritage and life experiences serve the truth that America is a nation of immigrants, and though we come from different places and speak different tongues, our hearts beat as one.
At the age of 22, though still young and untested, the legendary broadcaster Larry King took James under his wing, giving testimony that the American Dream genuinely means giving each other opportunities.
Although the recession of 2008 had hit the global economy, James decided to take initiative. He founded TarantinDream. A holding company with a mission to spark the imagination of people with intellectual properties in the field of media: games, films, literature and animation.
James became an American Citizen at the age of 25.
Building on his Quotables, he serves as a speaker and personal guide to many people while also running his second enterprise, Flag & Symbol, Corp.
As the President of Flag & Symbol, he is responsible for balancing the budget, international trade, expanding cash-flows, business legislation and the ethical codes of the privately held enterprise.
From the ages of 20 to 28, James lived in a poor studio apartment with no health insurance and for 5 years drove a $1,500 car which had over 120,000 miles. During these humbling years of poverty, chefs would give him food so he would not go to sleep hungry.
Yet against many tough odds, with no local investors, partners, domestic connections, or a college degree … James humbly proved that the Equation Book is a science of accomplishment, when at the age of 31, Flag & Symbol company became a multi-million dollar enterprise.
Throughout his life, he genuinely never tried stiff alcohol, smoking, drugs or driving recklessly down the street, understanding that true excitement comes from within and that by experimenting with these edgy things you may put the lives of other people in danger.
Today James lives in Maryland, USA along with his wife and newborn baby.
