It's Your Time! Thrive!

Jevonnah Ellison

You're not alone. I've been there, too. 

From losing one of my best friends to cancer at the young age of 42 to relocating halfway across the country, I know how it feels to wonder if you have what it takes to succeed.

I just want to come to you and encourage you with a few things...

#1. Your pain is a prerequisite for your purpose. 

#2. Your trauma will lead to triumph. 

#3. The crushing you're feeling now is cultivating something great inside of you! 

I've been coaching for 18 years. I delight in helping high achievers to start and grow successful businesses while keeping God 1st in the process. Several of my clients have gone on to build 6, some even 7 figure businesses.

My post graduate studies were done at Oxford University and Yale University.

I want to help you live out your God-given purpose in a meaningful way by helping you start and grow a business that you love!

Imagine making a lasting impact with your life...

You Have What it Takes

You want to positively impact as many lives as possible. You want God to order your steps, but sometimes you need a nudge to take those steps.

I get it.

In the not-too-distant past, I was staring down some of the same struggles you might be facing now. 

I knew God was calling me to something greater, but it seemed overwhelming to pursue it.

I already had so much responsibility in my life. 

From being the Director of Operators for The First Jurisdiction of Southern California to becoming a First Lady in Alabama, I had a lot of change going on.

The moment that changed everything...


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 she wanted more. 

We’d even have conversations about how she wanted to “launch out into the deep” and make an even bigger impact with her life.

I became committed, right then and there, to not let another person, “die with their song still inside of them.”

I got down on my knees in prayer and dedicated my life to helping as many people as I could live out their God-given purpose and thrive while doing it.


That First Investment...

I never forget my first investment in coaching. 

I was on a teleseminar (remember those?) when the coach I hired talked about her high level coaching program and how to sign up. 

I knew this was something I had to do. I wanted to grow. I wanted to experience the joy of having something to call my own. I knew I wanted to empower others to Thrive. It was scary because it was a big investment. But I knew deep in my heart it was what I was supposed to do. 

So I began that day and haven't looked back since.

The Birth of a World-Class Coaching Business...

Far out landscape
Jevonnah 2

I became a ravenous student of the world's best leaders and coaches. 

I listened to their trainings every day while driving to work (Entreleadership with Dave Ramsey was one of my favorites) and vowed to put what I learned into action.

Today I run a thriving, profitable coaching business that is transforming the lives of leaders 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 some 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. 

It's Your Time!

I’ve had such an extraordinary journey, and I’m so grateful!

Whatever your calling looks like, I'm here to help you step into it confidently and courageously. 

The same God who has opened these doors for me wants to bless you, too.

Clarify your purpose, amplify your strengths and thrive financially from what you already know!

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.

Faith over fear.

Courage over commonplace.

Perseverance and Resilience. 

Stay focused. Stay faithful.

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

Lady J
