I Help Leading Ladies Thrive!

Jevonnah Ellison

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 leading 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.

I help powerful people remember how powerful they are.

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. 

But have you ever felt overwhelmed or been spread too thin? Like the pace of your success outpaces your ability to manage it? 

But are you also . . .

Jevonnah Ellison book

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.

I want to help you maximize your impact and expand your influence in a meaningful way. 

My Story

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 and with his 6 grown children from previous relationships. (yep, you read that right...7 churches)

I immediately experienced the responsibilities and expectations that came with being a Pastor’s Wife and the interesting role of being a "bonus mom" to grown children who were nearly close to my own age. (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?

Jevonnah Ellison story

Then it happened...

Jevonnah Ellison speaking

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 had not been placed in the challenging role as a Pastor's wife to just settle - I had to help others overcome the same way I overcame. 

The Shift...

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.

A Note From Jevonnah

Dear World Changer,

I know it can feel scary when God is calling you to a new level. I want to take a moment to pause here and celebrate you for reading to the bottom of this page!

You know that if you’re still here, something about my message is calling to your heart.

Don’t ignore this nudge! God uses specific people in your life to help you accomplish His purposes, and I am confident that He brought you right here, right now, for a reason.

Whether it’s your bank account, your time, or your fear that’s holding you back from saying a resounding yes to the dreams God has placed in your heart, we can work through those blocks together.

I am persistent (can’t finish 13 marathons without being that way lol!) and I will be here for you through every single step of this momentous journey.

Faith over fear.

Courage over commonplace.

Stay focused. Stay faithful.

You’ve got this! Let’s do it together.

Love,
Lady J
