Are you ready to create a life you LOVE?!

The last couple of years have done a number on us.  You’re not alone if your focus shifted from desires to necessities, from thriving to existing, from career climbing to care giving.

Life’s curve balls led to forced lessons to learn how to navigate struggle, lack, fear and isolation which led to feelings of being disconnected, overwhelmed, anxious, uncertain and lost.

As the world robustly re-opens, I’ve discovered two common threads:

      1.  Having survived, now you want to thrive! Recognizing that life can be too short, it’s time to live a more purposeful life aligned with your values and desires while using your unique skills and talents; and

     2.  Even with a strong desire for change, there is an entrenched feeling of being stuck or overwhelmed and having no idea how to start making a meaningful change.

So, if you are in the camp ready to thrive, I can show you the way!


The reality is we all need help from time to time. It’s nearly impossible to find the solution and the path to what you desire when you are immersed in “what is” and focusing on the challenges all around you.

My programs teach you how to tame your fears, turn obstacles into opportunities and strategically take on change to build a life aligned with your values and purpose.

 Inside the programs:

  • I guide you to get clear on your vision of your life,
  • determine what it’s going to take to get you on that path,
  • help you develop the skills and mindset to achieve it, and
  • teach you the tools to accelerate and solidify your results.

When my amazing clients complete my programs, I ask them what they have learned about life and themselves and the best lessons, take away’s and A Ha’s they discovered during our time together. Here’s a peak into some of the transformations & you’ll see many more on the program pages:

I’m such a badass! I’m an incredibly capable person who can do anything.

Best moment: When I realized I had been chasing someone to believe in & realized it had been me all along!

I am a totally different person than when we began. I now love myself, celebrate my gifts and feel worthy to have the life I desire.

The greatest realization is how much I was quietly suffering over beliefs of unworthiness. Now, I know I am worthy!

Life Coach Joan Jakel

I provide a safe, supportive, nourishing environment where my top priority is to ensure you feel safe, seen and heard.

A place you don’t have to compete with other loud voices to be heard.

A place where you can show up, have permission to be your messy self and know you are a worthy without having to do anything to earn it.  You have unconditional permission to be real and never judged for it.

A place where you will experience deep empathy, compassion and love with an unwavering commitment to hold you accountable on your desired path.

If you’re ready to take center stage in your life and start living the life you’ve imagined but haven’t yet created, check out my programs and find one that resonates with you.

Each program is powerful, results-driven and designed to fit your lifestyle, goals and needs

Feel into it, dance into it, analyze it – honor your process.  Above all, trust your instincts and let intuition guide the way.  They will never steer you wrong.

Serendipity may have brought us together – you get to choose the path forward.

What are you waiting for?  Your life is beckoning!

Coaching Success Stories…

Through my work with Joan, I was able to completely transform some realms of my life that were bringing me down and preventing me from being the person I wanted to be. Now, I have a clear vision of the path to take to be in the place in life that I have always dreamed of being.

Serial Entrepreneur

I was in a funk with a few key relationships in my life & felt adrift at work.  We worked on a nagging negative inner dialogue that held me back, drilled down on my core values & mission in life & created a “tool belt” of resources to navigate challenges. This clarity catapulted my life into action!  I can’t recommend Joan highly enough.

I contacted Joan to kick some generational bad habits while preserving tradition to become a leader for my family. I found that changing my thinking empowered me, personally & professionally, to discover my best self. I will be forever grateful that her program helped me learn the tools to become a better leader.
