Life Coach Joan Jakel

Hi, I’m Joan…

I’m an Empowerment Instigatorequal parts coach, attorney, entrepreneur, creative maverick, ass kicker and cheerleader.

For 25 years, I’ve coached entrepreneurs to develop the mindset, create the structures, learn the skills and up-level their tools to design a life and business that exceeds their expectations.

Now, my focus is on helping women who feel stuck, afraid or frozen in place because they are stressed out, burned out, exhausted and overwhelmed.

Women who want more from life.

Women who want to confidently use their voice and unlock their potential, but don’t know how to achieve it.

I’m here to show you the way.

My programs teach you how to:

    • tame your fears,
    • turn obstacles into opportunities, &
    • strategically take on change to build a life aligned with your values and purpose.

I’ve created multiple program options to fit your needs and lifestyle…
