I'm Jevonnah Ellison, otherwise known as "Lady J". I got the name "Lady J" when I became a Pastor's wife and my church affectionately started calling me that on their own. It just stuck and people loved it. 

I got my start in business over 12 years ago after I received a random letter of encouragement in the mail from Bishop TD Jakes Ministries.

I knew it was a form letter, but I didn't care. I felt like he was speaking directly to me. 

The letter talked about expanding your vision, starting your business and thriving with what God has placed into your hands. 

After reading that letter, I attended Dan Miller's signature coaching event, Coaching with Excellence, in Franklin, TN and haven't looked back since.

Dan became like a Father figure to me and was my original business coach. So much of what I do in business today is because of him and is dedicated to his memory and legacy. 

I can still remember driving away from that event on that long gravel road thinking to myself, "My life will never be the same." 

When I finished attending Dan's event and got things going in my coaching business, I launched my first series of signature VIP Days and Deep Dive VIP Days.

I had my first consistent, steady stream of sales and was making more money in my business than I was in my day job.

God kept breathing on my business, and after a couple years, we passed the high 6 figure mark and started to get invited to do executive coaching by firms like The United States Small Business Administration and Goldman Sachs in New York. 

That’s when I started getting more and more emails from people asking me for business and marketing advice to teach them how to be successful starting and launching their own businesses using my proven techniques and formulas.

I’ve been very fortunate to work with some renowned, well-known leaders, high achievers and change makers all over the globe. 

I’ve devoted my life to helping high achievers and leaders like you thrive in life and in business while keeping God 1st. I firmly believe that you CAN create a wildly successful business while honoring your core values. 

So take a look around.
