Are you a career woman or female entrepreneur that is stepping into a leadership space where you will be a leader in your industry, company, or as an influencer?
Has your career or business growth plateaued or been limited in part due to lack of confidence, discomfort in being a leader, not having a powerful or influential leadership presence, or challenges in presenting and communicating as a leader?
If this is you, first off you are not alone and secondly, you are in the right place to transform and become the impactful, confident leader you are!
When I think back to my twenties and entering the working world, I see a young women who was not prepared with the foundations or skills to navigate all the people, situations, and challenges that were about to unfold as she grew her career and later her business. Skills that would have profoundly accelerated her growth, eased stress, and boosted confidence.
Then after coaching career women and female entrepreneurs, I realized that it is not our skill and mastery that limits or stops our growth, but rather, it is not having specific leadership skills and the confidence that comes with these.
The irony is we each have our own brilliance and shining talents, but we either do not feel comfortable communicating these or don't know how.
I created ElleVantage, an online women's leadership coaching program and course, to empower career and business women with the skills they need to lead and grow their career and business.
My grandma was from Ireland and the Irish meaning of Elle is 'shining brilliant'. Elle also represents ray of light in Hebrew and Greek and in French it is the pronoun description for her.
In addition, the theme of my mission is to 'Elevate' and I believe it is women's leadership skills that are the secret, competitive advantage to grow our careers and business.
We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and take the lead.
Imagine needing to show up to the interview of your dream job or the opportunity to pitch yourself or your business for an exciting sale, but not feeling confident or prepared. What if you did not have the leadership and communication skills to have a successful outcome in those situations?
Now think about what it would be like to have confidence, to have a presence that exudes leadership and competence, to know how to communicate boldly, and be able to negotiate.
Amid these higher stress moments and even the seemingly insignificant ones, would it not be amazing to be able to manage your nerves and present and perform to your peak?
This is what women's leadership skills give us, but they offer so much more too. When we feel confident presenting, networking, asking, leading, and communicating, all of these have huge positive implications including: advancing us into leadership, getting a career promotion, and growing our business for more reach and sales.
ElleVantage gives you these skills, preparation, confidence, leadership, and peak performance to lead as the leader driving results in your career and business.

I sought out coaching with Jody to build my leadership and communication skills along with my executive presence. Together we worked on developing my confidence and voice to take up space in meetings and in addressing challenging situations. She was instrumental in guiding me through difficult circumstances in the workplace. As I evolved and our coaching continued, Jody coached me in preparing for an important interview where I have now landed a great job. If you are looking for leadership, confidence, communication or career coaching, Jody will assist you with all of these, including the stress and wellbeing required to navigate it.
Working with Jody over the past couple years has been one of the most rewarding and impactful experiences that I have had since entering the job force nearly 8 years ago. I began working with Jody at a time where my professional life was beginning to spill over and negatively impact my personal life. From the onset Jody created a safe and compassionate environment for me to share freely without judgement while we began dissecting the aspects of my personal and professional life that were no longer serving me.
Throughout the process Jody helped me realize my value, find my voice and learn how to advocate for myself in tough situations. She taught me to have compassion toward myself, and encouraged me to keep moving forward even when I encountered bumps in the road. By doing this important work I was able to find the confidence I needed to make difficult decisions knowing that I now had the tools in my arsenal to overcome the challenging situations ahead. I cannot recommend Jody enough as she truly is a “perle rare”!
“I interviewed for the position and one of the interviewers shared that I scored 98%! I know that my confidence and how I was able to present myself is a direct reflection of our coaching sessions and I need to really thank you for that.”
The question isn't who's going to let me; it is who is going to stop me?
