Meet Your Coach

Meet Leigh and Get Inspired!


lsj-6Leigh St John’s Professional Profile:

When you meet Leigh St John you understand the meaning of the word “passion” – she lives & breathes it with an enthusiasm that is contagious!

Whereas some coaches and trainers will tell you how without having done it themselves, Leigh St John has actually walked the walk!

Leigh is a best-selling Author whose writing credits are too numerous to list and include authoring several published non-fiction books, ghost-writing over twenty books and several successful blogs, being an Expert Columnist with one of the leading small business magazines, Editor of her own publication, and literally hundreds of published articles.  One of Leigh’s greatest passions is helping Writers achieve their dream of becoming Published Authors!

While I may now have the majority of the answers to successfully writing and self-publishing, it hasn’t always been this way…

For years I was like you probably are right now… with one or more books inside you, longing to come out… but they never did…

I know what it feels like to tell friends “I’m going to finish my book this year and finally get it published,” only to have that statement haunt you months, years later when the book is still un-finished and un-published…

…but one day I reached a point where I said “enough” and I made a commitment to write, to be published and to stop letting excuses get in the way of achieving my dreams!

That day was made waaaaaay back in 1990 and since then I’ve achieved more than I ever dreamed…

Here’s what my professional bio looks like today – when you read it, think of all the ways my Team and I can help support you to achieve YOUR dreams…

On the personal side, my passions include (not in any particular order) …

Good red wine, my glorious friends, the joy I feel from helping people achieve their dreams, writing, travelling the world in style, sharing my adventures, Italian food, books, being on or near the water… and generally being ‘happy’…

“All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
