Jelan Agnew has the gift of helping others see their true potential. The best way to learn to become a better version of yourself is to be coached by someone else who has a journey similar to yours and a person who inspires you as Jelan did for me. I consider myself blessed to have her say yes to being my coach.
This is the best investment I have ever made and I have no regrets. Do not think of the here and now. Manifest where you need to be, invest in a coach that is invested in you. Jelan was that coach for me and I highly recommend everyone to hire her.

During the strategy session, Jelan provided me with the support, courage, and strategy to complete an application to become a Continuing Education Provider to facilitate training on mental health and cannabis. I'm grateful for the opportunity to be a CEU provider to diversify my income and reduce burnout so I can live a life of leisure and not burnout. ​

I can’t begin to express the deep transformation that occurred in every aspect of my life

After 2 failed businesses, I've struggled to find my confidence again and wanted to work with Jelan to explore public speaking. She wasted NO TIME in addressing my fears head-on and every session has been better than the previous one. Within the first 30 days of working with her, I posted my own face and my struggles on social media in order to connect with my target clients... something I didn't think I could ever do! If you're ready to take your business or speaking opportunities to the next level, Jelan will push and pull you in all the ways you need. She's the real deal!
