Welcome home, bright light. I see you! (Yes you, sister.)

I’m Jeannine Yoder my community calls me Jey. I help women from Nigeria to New Jersey get in touch with their world-changing gifts, live their greatness with confidence, and run soul-centered businesses that make serious cash.

I’m a master life coach and mentor, totally in love with helping coaches, thought leaders, and speakers (aspiring and established) find their unique zone of genius.  I bring the spirit of play and my broadway stage skills to the table to help you discover your purpose, embody your mission and express yourself in a way that captivates and inspires.

I believe in humor and play:

If you feel called to coach and take the stage in a bigger way, but worry you’re “too young” or “not ready” you’re exactly where you need to be.

I don’t believe in age restrictions on living your purpose. The desire to equip others with the tools and strategies they need to find more bliss and fulfillment is enough. You just need support and training to discover a leadership style that’s all your own.

I would know I’ve been running my life coach practice since I was 24. If you’re going to make real impact you’ve got to get over your fear and take the stage. All you need is a little practice preparing with simple tips on stage presence for your next mission driven performance. No worries, I’m here to help you master the same techniques I’ve been implementing since my first role (at just 8 years old) in “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown.”

From Drug Addicted Parents & Broadway Stages to the New York Times:
My Road to Coaching

Hold up! How do you enjoy connection? I’m all about honoring you and your desire.

I’ve got time for a good story, give me the real “tales.”

I was born in sunny Long Beach, California… and my childhood was far from glamorous.

Both of my parents struggled with drug addiction, and we lived in the hood. They went into recovery for the first time when I was 8, and my earliest memories mostly involve standing on the side of the freeway with dad (begging) and sitting on their laps in Narcotics Anonymous (“NA”) meetings, learning about the 12 steps. (I can pretty much recite all the literature from memory.) Nope, not an ideal scenario. The recovery community taught me the meaning of transformation, and the importance of vulnerability when it comes to making authentic connection. I saw in real time how much work it takes to make shifts that last, and how important it is to share that journey with others.

Before I hit my teens, I was training myself as a catalyst for possibility. I coached my mom and dad as they weaned themselves off their favorite poisons, using a calendar timeline. I followed a witnessing voice inside that whispered insights and ideas when fear threatened to control me.  When financial problems and running from the law meant switching schools 8 different times, I pushed myself to be flexible and social in the energy of uncertainty.

While I was trying to make the most of the cards I’d been dealt… deep down, I had a big, magical dream. I wanted to perform onstage for thousands of people. Unfortunately, from where I was standing – without a safety net, connections, or any support I could count on it seemed impossible. That California sunshine must have slipped an extra spark of positivity into my soul; because from an early age, I understood every challenge was cradled in a blessing. AND I did have one critical weapon in my arsenal. My years of sitting in on support group meetings had taught me the most important truth about success: keep putting one foot in front of the other, and you’ll get there. So that’s exactly what I did. And eventually, I made it all the way to Broadway.

By 21, I was living in New York City, performing on the world’s most prestigious stages.  I’d gone from ex drug dealer’s daughter, to paying my way through musical theatre school, and moving to the Big City on my own. I was on TV, movies, and entertaining sold-out audiences. I’d arrived. Finally! … Or had I? Unfortunately, it wasn’t all roses and applause (is it ever?). Despite my high-profile gigs, I wasn’t happy. I was having trouble making ends meet with the ups and downs of the industry.

My world was split in two. Half was bright lights and standing ovations, the other half was moonlighting as a waitress, and dealing with a seriously chauvinistic boss (I always knew I was born to be my own boss).

It was a tough time for me. I’d worked so hard to get where I was, only to hate where I’d ended up. I was devastated. What was wrong with me?! Was I nuts not to be satisfied? Nope, not even a little. Really, I’d never been more clear. I was only just waking up to my life’s true purpose. While I absolutely loved to perform (and still do!) I realized something: I wanted to make an impact on people’s lives beyond just telling a story, singing, or dancing. Magic happens on the stage, miracles happen in real life. For years, I’d been giving friends advice on making huge leaps in their lives, and building their dreams into reality. It came so naturally to me, I’d barely noticed the pattern. But now, I couldn’t ignore it.

I realized I wanted to serve women, and teach everything I knew about determination, and making it happen for yourself. Over the years, I’d picked up so many tools, and understood the path to permanent change and achieving so well, I could empower them to chase after those “impossible” possibilities too.

My soul was calling out to me. I knew I had to listen.

So I poured all my savings into getting every bit of life coach training I could. I soaked in the wisdom of industry heavyweights like Tony Robbins, Marie Forleo, Danielle LaPorte, and Nisha Moodley.

I was finally stepping into my natural zone of genius, and living with intention — and it felt ah-mazing. (And on a fairy tale note: I met the love of my life and finally let myself accept the happily ever I never thought I deserved.)

Suddenly, I was paying attention to the invitations life was sending me. I was looking for resources, and keeping my eyes on the prize while I worked my butt off. And the results were…almost unbelievable.

Opportunities fell into my lap. I was attracting celebrity clients. I developed a signature coaching method people started to fall in love with. I made the cover of the New York Times. I started a mentorship program to teach fellow young coaches-in-waiting everything they needed to launch a successful coaching business.

But best of all, I knew I had finally found the reason I had faced the challenges I did: because each darkness pushed me towards the light.

Which brings us to the here & now

Nowadays, I work with coaches, leaders and future leaders who are ready to come out of hiding, step into the spotlight, and take the stage of your life.

So now I have a question for you… are you ready to take hold of your destiny, and listen to what your heart’s always been telling you? No more thinking about what “could be, some day” when you could feel fully alive, today. No more staying in the shadows hiding diamond insights when you could “be the change you wish to see in the world”. No more using “I’m too young” or “I’d never make it” as an excuse for putting off becoming all of yourself in this lifetime. Everything you need to make your mark on this world, use your story to inspire and encourage, and help people get out of their own way lies within you. You just need to know where to look and who’s looking out for you.

It would be my honor to show you the way.

I’m here to help you bring meaningful and impactful power and passion into the world through your unique genius.

And now just for funsies a few vulnerable randoms:

  • In 2011, I married the hunkiest, wittiest, most loyal, and sweetest man on the planet. I adore the living crap out of him and after 8 years I still get butterflies.

  • I call him “My Superman”, he calls me “Sweet, Sweet”.

  • I hated planning my wedding.

  • I joined Nisha Moodley’s Freedom Mastermind as the leading celebration & accountability coach in 2014. That means I led all of the Sister Circle calls for the 9-month journey.

  • I love Burlesque.  

  • My grandmother was killed by a drunk driver, two blocks away from home on her way from a late night out dancing (can you imagine how fierce she must have been and the life lessons she shared with me?).

  • I was featured as the cover story for the Life & Style section of The New York Times in February of 2012, in an interview about young and successful life coaches posing the question “Should a Life Coach Have a Life First?”.

  • I suck at spelling and have little-to-no patience with grammar.

  • I hang my clothes on color coded matching hangers.

  • I’m a total self-help geek – and have shelves on shelves of books on every topic!

  • I like ice cream cookie sandwiches and green juice.  I indulge in both.

  • When my girlfriends were crushing on Leonardo DiCaprio, I had eyes for Tony Robbins, still do.

  • I took a break from musical theater at 19 and went to construction school to become a Masonry Inspector.

  • I refuse to label or diagnose you. I believe YOU are unique and that your problems and limitations are coded by your life experience and individual spirit journey. Your talents and your purpose are multifunctional and limitless.

  • I’m scared of bees.

  • We just bought our dream home on the beach.

  • My love language is words of affirmation and gifts (sometimes I’m embarrassed to admit that).  I replay genuine compliments in my head from people who have been kind enough to express and share with me.  I get really excited over surprise gifts and love to surprise people with thoughtful gifts too.  Which is why I include lots of bonuses in all of my programs.

I believe we are connected now for a very important reason.  If you made it down this far I really hope you will take a moment to introduce yourself.  I read all of my emails!  Support@JeannineYoder.com
