YOU’RE A LIFE COACH.

I’M a Life Coach.

OMG, So great to meet you!

Hi, I’m JJ! I founded The Coach’s Playground so that we coaches could explore a playful, coach-approach to learning the building blocks of business.
I also run a life & leadership coaching practice for disruptors and changemakers.

 

ONCE UPON A TIME…

A woman had a baby girl who was the love of her life.  But driving hours and hours a day to work 60 hours a week, and then come home to watch her baby sleep drove her into a post partum depression so deep it took years to heal. Out of that experience was born a certified professional life coach (me!) who knows for sure there is life on the other side of a draining day job.

Your job might not actually be killing you the way mine was killing me, but chances are pretty good it falls somewhere between “toxic” and “tolerating it”.  It’s time to playfully, and at your own pace, build the escape hatch and give your dream a fair chance! 

Yes, there are gremlins at every corner. Time management must be wrangled and tamed. There are new skills to learn and master. But the first time you break the money barrier, it is so worth it.

 

My Values & Beliefs

FREEDOM. AUTONOMY. FREEDOM. more freedom.

Like most coaches, I followed a deep desire to be of service. BUt my  heart rings truest to the bell of FREEDOM. Time freedom, freedom of choice, money freedom… Freedom is my highest value.

CURIOSITY. COACH-APPROACH.

The fastest way to blast through entrepreneur paralysis? Curiousity. The fastest way to jump out of stress and into child-like joy? Curiousity. Curiousity is my meditation, my practice, and my escape hatch.

BE BRAVE. BE KIND.

In the words of The National, “All we gotta do/is be brave/and be kind.” Coming back to these 2 principles always helps me stay in integrity – in life, business, parenting, and marriage.

You & me

I’d love to spend more time with you!  That’s why I created The Coach’s Playground Mastermind Group.  It’s a gathering place for folks who want to keep on moving towards their goal of having a coaching practice… while enjoying the journey. C’mon over – it’s free! 

If you’re looking for a way to move foward that is ethical, sincere, and totally YOU…

If you’re driven to #ServeLikeHell AND kind of psychologically unemployable…

If FREEDOM is your highest value, followed closely by compassion, connection, fun, curiosity, and adventure…

You’ve found your people.

When I’m Not Working…

…you will find me tearing across NJ in my beloved 6-speed Honda.  I have a wild passion for cars, street fighting, and books.

I spend about 8-10 hours a week training at a dojo, partly driven by passion and partly to make up for a lifetime of being a bookworm, not an athlete. I specialize in a hybrid form of Mixed Martial Arts that focuses on reality scenarios and street fighting. 

Martial Arts has been the greatest gift of my 40’s!

 

Fun Facts

01

I’M A MAMA

I have two inspiring daughters. Both times, we received incredible foresight from my husband’s Gram, who passed away just before my husband & I met.

02

MY HAPPY PLACE IS

Tucked into my Tuft & Needle Mint Memory Foam mattress with something by Sue Monk Kidd, Anne Lamott, Dr. Joe Dispenza, or any of the other mind-blowing thought leaders out there. Oh, and with a .$19 notebook from Staples by my side.

03

TEA V COFFEE

I don’t want to talk about it, but we’re working on it.

04

AS A KID I

Used to lay on my belly next to the bedroom door so I could stealthily read a book by the crack of the hallway light. I also had (still have) an embarassing empthy with that one mitten you see in the street.

MY BIGGEST LIFE LESSON

From The National, “All we gotta do/is be brave/and be kind.”
