Dr. Jevonnah Ellison (Lady J)

Dr. Jevonnah "Lady J" Ellison is the Founder and President of The Entrepreneurial First Lady, LLC, a transformational leadership coaching company. Recently named "Small Business Person of the Year" by the Montgomery Chamber of Commerce and with nearly 18 years of coaching experience, Dr. Ellison is equipped to help you experience the kind of success and significance that matters to you.

Her company has helped small businesses and entrepreneurs generate over 150 million in revenue and increase their lasting impact and influence. Most recently, she was selected by the United States Small Business Administration as "The Official Business Coach" for the Montgomery/Mobile Cohort Emerging Leaders T.H.R.I.V.E. program.

As a First Lady, Speaker, and 4-time Author, Lady J is clear about her God-given assignment: to help others thrive & flourish in life and in business while keeping God 1st. As a graduate of business programs at Oxford and Yale Universities, she is an expert at helping entrepreneurs and small business owners clarify their purpose, amplify their strengths and thrive financially from what they already know.

Clients say that she "coaches with class", makes them feel like her only client and truly helps them achieve lasting results. Making her clients feel truly seen, heard and understood is one of her unique "superpowers" and gifts.

My Top 3 Values as a Business Owner:

1. Generosity
"A generous person will prosper, and she/he who refreshes others will be refreshed.” (Proverbs)

I'm a firm believer in generosity when it comes to leaders and high achieving entrepreneurs. Many of the best of them are the most giving people on the planet, so it is my goal to give back to them in a way that can help them accomplish their deepest dreams and goals.

2. Integrity
Doing business with integrity means doing the right thing, serving your customers with the highest levels of excellence, and honoring your word. A core value of ours is also keeping God 1st in business. We stand in the integrity of Proverbs 3:6

3. Innovation Through inspiration
Encouragement is excellent, but so is the ability to speak the truth in love. That's one of the things we specialize in. While we cheerlead our clients to higher levels of excellence, we also challenge them to growth, expansion and bigger thinking mindsets.


“I believe in helping high achievers thrive and flourish in their lives and businesses. As a Dean of Coaching at a national University, I know first hand the power of coaching. It changed my life and the trajectory of my business. I'm looking forward to providing the same hope, inspiration, encouragement and strategy I received into other promising entrepreneurs & leaders.”

How do participants benefit from having you as their SBA T.H.R.I.V.E. Coach?

I specialize in 3 key areas:

1. The Right Challenge Clients are challenged to believe bigger, think deeper and move from inspiration to implementation.

2. The Right Accountability & Growth Plan Clients are held accountable to follow through on what they said they'd do and adhere to deadline dates and assignments. The power of small groups makes a lasting impact. A strategic growth plan is consistently reviewed and habits put in place that help make success possible.

3. The Right Systems Clients are given a custom roadmap with the right systems, a strategic growth plan, strategies and methods they need to personally succeed.
