Well hello there!
I’m Jevonnah Ellison, aka "Lady J". (If you want to know where the name "Lady J" comes from, keep reading.)
I help Leading Ladies (and a handful of awesome men) prioritize what matters most in life and business so that they can maximize their potential, live out their God-given purpose, and leave a remarkable legacy in the marketplace.
Are you driven, motivated, and determined to fulfill your divine purpose?
Are you an established leader in your business or community?
You already know your purpose. You are already making a significant impact in the world.
I want to help you maximize your impact and expand your influence even more!
But are you also . . .
Desiring to take the necessary leap forward toward your biggest goals?
Uncertain about how to navigate the path you feel called to walk?
Sometimes feel isolated from or misunderstood by those around you who seem content to "settle"?
Well, I’ve been there, too, and I know I can help you break through the barriers that are preventing you from thriving.
Here’s a bit about who I am, what drives me, and my experience.
In the not-too-distant past, I was staring down some of the same struggles you’re facing now.
I knew God was calling me to something greater, but it seemed daunting to pursue it.
I already had so much responsibility in my life.
I left my longtime position as Director of Operations for The First Jurisdiction of Southern California (which was a job I loved) to join my new husband in Montgomery, Alabama.
In so doing, I stepped into the role of First Lady of his 7 already established churches (yep, you read that right...7 churches)
I immediately experienced the responsibilities and expectations that came with being a Pastor’s Wife. (The church members affectionately started calling me "Lady J" 🙂
When I felt the call to formally begin my coaching business, it didn’t exactly make sense.
Where would I find the time for this new venture? Where would I find the money to invest in the training and mentorship I knew I needed to excel?
Then it happened...
I distinctly remember the day I received the news that one of my best friends passed away.
She was only 42.
The cancer diagnosis came in October and she was gone just 2 months later, on Christmas Eve. Of all days...Christmas Eve.
While she had done many amazing things with her life, I knew her.
I knew she wanted more. She knew she wanted more.
We’d even have conversations about how she wanted to “launch out into the deep” and make an even bigger impact.
I became committed, right then and there, to not let another person, “die with their song still inside of them.”
I wanted to help as many people as I could truly live out their God-given purpose and thrive while doing it.
No matter the obstacles, I had to do what God has destined me to do.
I thought. “No more!”
While on my way to work, right there at a stoplight, I Googled the term, “fastest ways to make $20k”. It’s funny now, and I saw a lot of crazy ideas, but one stood out: Dave Ramsey and his Baby Steps. I thought, “This I can do. I can take these small steps toward my future vision.”
So I began that day.
Fast forward a few months later, and I got a letter in the mail from Bishop T.D. Jakes.
I had never given money to his ministry before, so I’m not sure how I was on his mailing list, but I call it providence! The letter asked me to take a small step of faith and sow a seed into his ministry.
I knew in my spirit that God was calling me to make that investment.
I prayed over my commitment and believed God would return that seed to my business in multiples.
I still have the letter in my scrapbook from where he requested that seed of faith.
Wow - talk about happy memories.
At the same time, I became a student of world-class leaders like Michael Hyatt, Dan Miller, and Brendon Burchard.
I listened to their trainings every day while driving to work and vowed to put what I learned into action.
And it happened! God did exactly what He promised.
Today I run a thriving, profitable coaching business that is transforming the lives of people around the globe.
I've been helping high achievers like you reach their dreams for 18 years.
My brilliant clients have gone on to run thriving multiple six and even 7 figure companies, lead Fortune 500 teams with multi-million dollar budgets, publish bestselling books, walk in their purpose, restore relationships, become debt free and even lose weight.
When you come into alignment with who God has destined you to be, so many other things in your life start thriving.
Everything is happening for you in the perfect timing.
Nothing has been wasted if you learn from the experience.
I’ve had such an extraordinary journey, and I’m so grateful!
From connecting me with elite coaches and mentors to equipping me to serve hundreds of entrepreneurs in building powerful coaching businesses, to opening platforms nationwide for me to speak and teach, the opportunities keep coming!
The same God who has opened these doors for me wants to bless you, too.
He’s calling you to step into the purpose that He planted in your heart before you ever took your first breath.
I believe the people we’re supposed to meet come onto our path in perfect timing. Perhaps you’ve come to this page because we are meant to be connected.
It's not by happenstance that you're reading this right now.
One of my greatest joys in life is to speak hope, love, and encouragement into the lives of others.
Leaders just like you, with a divine calling, already pursuing it with passion and vigor!
Yes, I will help you make money doing work that ignites your soul. That takes time, focus, and clarity.
But I’ll also help you align with your truth and divine purpose in an even bigger, more authentic way.
I’ll help you experience more meaning and fulfillment from your vocation and leadership.
Whatever your calling looks like, I’m here to help you step into it confidently and courageously.
