The Jump Start Coaching Program provides an immediate antidote to look at your life through the lens of soul-tapping possibility combined with expert guidance to get you on an immediate path of action with intention.


Seriously – imagine the possibilities!


The Framework:

The Jump Start Coaching Program kicks off with a Life Direction Assessment. The Assessment is an in-depth questionnaire that takes you on a journey to help you closely examine and explore your life.  Some of the areas include your:

  • vision
  • philosophy 
  • dreams
  • life engagement
  • habits 
  • goals
  • accomplishments
  • motivation
  • definition of success

And There’s More!

The Assessment doesn’t leave any stone unturned since the top priority is making sure that YOU are looking at every important aspect of your life.  In light of that, the Assessment also guides you to take a close look at: 

  • meaningful work, career, business
  • finance and abundance
  • health, energy and vitality 
  • peace and groundedness
  • supportive community, friends and family
  • learning and growing
  • play and adventure
  • inspiring surroundings and physical environment

Can I let you in on a little secret?


The Life Direction Assessment is a powerful, powerful tool. However, the secret sauce that truly lands the results is the level of honesty, introspection and clarity that you tap into when completing it.

Without fail, every single one of my coaching clients have shared with me this Life Direction Assessment started changing their life simply by thoughtfully reflecting on every question and completing the entire assessment.

Before they had their first coaching session with me, they started connecting deeply with themselves and finding the clarity they had been desperately seeking.

Be prepared for more than a few “A Ha” moments!

Once you’ve thoughtfully completed the questionnaire, I will take you on a journey.We’ll look at life as you know it and explore the possibilities that light you up and align with your desires.

We’ll examine the distance between where you are, where you desire to go and what it will take to get there.

During the 90 minute consultation, I’ll work my magic and we’ll:

pinpoint where you are personally and professionally

define what truly matters to you

explore the direction you want your life to take

begin the vision of what’s possible

identify the gaps that have kept you from achieving it

determine your priorities

collaborate on actionable steps to intentionally move forward

At the conclusion of the jump start consultation…


I will also provide you with recommendations, a process or tool that you can immediately begin to use to capitalize on your clarity and take action on your priorities.

By the time we wrap our session, feelings of relief, gratitude, excitement and renewed possibility will flood over you.

No more waiting and wondering – you have direction.

Follow up Coaching Calls

After the consultation, we’ll schedule two follow up coaching calls, each 60 minutes, to build on your momentum and maintain forward progress on your results.

During the Jump Start coaching calls, I’ll:


provide accountability, support & guidance

help you keep your inner critic in check

provide additional tools & resources

provide an environment to explore possibilities

assist in refining action steps toward your vision

“In the quiet dance of self-reflection, unwrap the wisdom of the past, stand in awe of your accomplishments and courageously design the next vibrant chapter.”

~ Joan Jakel

Why work with Me?

I have a proven track record. For 25 years, I’ve successfully coached hundreds of 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.

Diversity of Experience

I am a personal development coach, a business attorney, a serial entrepreneur, an artist, a student of life, a dream chaser (and catcher), a believer in big, hairy audacious goals and a legend maker.


Extensive Training

I’ve invested countless hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars in training and education over several decades to learn cutting edge processes and continually evolving resources. All of my programs were thoughtfully designed to comprehensively package a lifetime of learning to help you create breakthrough results.

Supportive Environment

I create a safe, nourishing and judgment-free environment to give you full permission and safety to show up and be real (and messy). I provide compassionate yet no BS support that gives you permission to be honest, vulnerable and, did I mention, messy,

I know the pain, overwhelm and soul-crushing loss from navigating a divorce.  The days when numbness consumes your body and the only thing you want to do is pull the covers over your head and hide. When you find yourself behind locked doors wracked in pain, unable to face the world and desperately wondering if you will ever feel joy again. (You will.)

I’ve dared to leave my safe, lucrative dream job to launch my own business and face the uncertainty, the unknown, the fear and crazy lifestyle of an entrepreneur. (After 25 years, I’ve never looked back.)

I’ve picked up and moved my life across the country, multiple times, to follow my inner guidance and live life by my adventurous standards pursuing my unique dreams. (I highly recommend following your unique path!)

I’ve massively transformed my business over the years to follow my purpose and passion. From

    • putting myself through law school,
    • to working at a law firm,
    • to leading the legal department of a corporation,
    • to setting up my own law firm,
    • to becoming an artist,
    • to becoming an intentional creativity teacher,
    • to having an art studio on the Napa River,
    • to leading retreats and experiences,
    • to becoming a transformative personal development coach combining my wisdom with my skills, gifts & passions.  (And I’m only just getting started!)

As a result of my life experiences, I’ve created powerful, results-driven coaching programs to help you create the life YOU love!

Life Coach Joan Jakel

How quickly can I schedule the consultation?

Once you’ve paid for the assessment, you will receive an email with access to the questionnaire and a link to Joan’s calendar to schedule your consultation.

How much time do I have to complete the questionnaire?

 Joan requires the questionnaire 48 hours prior to your phone consultation so she has time to prepare for the consultation.  If you cannot return it in that timeframe, the consultation will be rescheduled.

How long will it take me to complete the questionnaire?

 Give yourself at least an hour and more if it’s necessary to fully answer all the questions.  It’s the quality of time that matters more than the quantity.  Thoughtful and thorough answers will lead to a more productive and impactful consultation which will lead to transformative guidance and results.
