Making Coaching an Adventure (Jackie Cote)

  • Episode #125

After being laid off from her last job, Jackie Cote courageously built a thriving six-figure coaching business and embraced a nomadic RV lifestyle. Jackie shares how nature fuels her vision and how she guides clients to embrace their “freedom lives.”

Jackie Cote is known as the “freedom empowerment mentor” for guiding her clients in creating their “freedom lives” rich with more time, money, and flexibility.

In this episode, Melinda and Jackie talk about:

  • Emphasis on nature’s role in expanding Jackie’s personal and client-oriented vision
  • Shifting to virtual client interactions and how it opens up new prospects
  • Guiding clients’ self-discovery of desires and pathways to possibilities
  • Rising above fear, living in future visions, and letting go of past concerns
  • Taking risks as growth and outreach strategies
  • Running a successful virtual coaching business while traveling
  • The practical aspects and emotional considerations of mobile entrepreneurship
  • The critical role of clarity in vision and desires while building a business framework
  • Overcoming fear and complacency by reframing experiences as adventures
  • Setting intentions to harness feelings of freedom and success
  • Manifestation of desires over time and embracing change as a constant in life
  • The turning point of Jackie going “all in” on her business
“The difference between people who don’t go all in and people who put a toe in is why you’re where you are today.”

— Jackie Cote

Jackie Cote is a “freedom empowerment mentor,” international speaker, and RV adventurist. After mentoring and developing over 300 leaders to new levels in her past 30-year restaurant career, Jackie decided to take her gifts to the world in her own business. Now she mentors ambitious professionals who no longer believe in the hustle and grind, but aren’t quite sure how to get out of that without losing the success they’ve already built. After working with Jackie, they start doing what they’re meant to be doing instead of what they think they “should” be doing — all while still creating more time, money, and freedom.

Jackie believes in awakening, empowering, and owning YOU unapologetically is this world. As such, she is now living her “freedom life” traveling full time in an RV with her husband and two fur babies while doing what she loves on her own terms and helping others create their freedom lives.
