Hi, and thank you for visiting Phoenix Coaching. I’m Jackie Mott and I am a Disruptor, a Mindset Coach and Facilitator of Change.
I haven’t always been a coach. I started my career as a bookkeeper and started my own business because I couldn’t manage to balance the needs of my family with a full time job. I’d become a mother at 17 and after that, made every major decision based on what I believed was best for my family. It took me several years to finish my high school diploma and when I finally got tired of minimum wage jobs and the type of life I could afford on that income, I went back to school and got my diploma in Business Administration.
When I started that business in September 2000, I had no idea what I was doing but I’m pretty persistent and I just kept going and learning, falling down and getting back up until eventually I’d developed the confidence to succeed.
In the beginning of 2012, I had an office and a couple of assistants and things seemed to be going well.
On April 16th, a phone call changed all of that. My sister had been killed in a car accident while driving to work that morning and even though I was 2 weeks away from the income tax deadline, my world ground to a screeching halt.
In the aftermath, I experienced a deep, paralyzing grief and as I worked on healing and working through everything that meant, on figuring out how to function in a world that no longer made sense, I began to see that I was desperately unhappy and didn’t even know it. I had everything you were supposed to need to be happy. I was married to a man I loved, had a house with 2 dogs and a big yard, a thriving business… What more could I possibly need? Right? But there was something missing…
Over the next couple of years, I started to share my story and was asked to speak publicly about my experience. What surprised me was that I found that I had a unique way of speaking that seemed to touch people and help them see things differently. I didn’t use a template or a format I was “supposed” to use, I simply spoke from my heart and somehow, people connected with that.
I took classes and attended workshops to help me try to understand what was happening. Eventually, I was encouraged to start coaching people in small groups and running workshops of my own and that led me to become a Certified Strategic Intervention Coach in 2015. It amazed me the transformations that my clients and guests experienced so quickly and that caused a thirst for more. So I’ve continued to learn and develop my skills and will continue to do so because I really LOVE this stuff!
My WHY is simply to share a unique perspective that challenges the status quo and help people break through the mindset blocks that hold them back because watching someone shift their thinking and see their unique beauty and value and begin to truly love themselves gives me tremendous joy.
