489

Jacquelynn Cotten is one of the coaches that we found this month and we did a little interview with her. She impressed us with her honesty and strength of character.

She shares a transformative career journey that began with unexpected job loss as a single mother in 2019. What emerged from this challenge was a dynamic shift, from freelancing to creating the Magnetic Marketing Academy and, most recently, birthing the Spiritual Support System in 2023.

Her story is not just a professional evolution, it’s a profound personal metamorphosis. Battling a challenging childhood marked by abuse and overcoming mental health struggles, she found empowerment through self love and the exploration of neuroscience during the pandemic.

She is utilizing neuroscience, hypnosis, energy work, and intuitive abilities, she designs an experience where clients feel genuinely seen and heard. Beyond business success, she emphasizes accessibility, offering free and paid containers, turning her coaching into a brand rather than a mere service. Here is what she said.

Name: Jacquelynn Cotten

Pillar: The Spirit, The Mind

Who is this coach for: Anyone who wants to find their path and succeed in life.

How they can help: Through various tools and techniques like hypnosis, energy work, neuroscience techniques, meditation, and shadow work, just to name a few.

First of all, how are you and your family doing after these Pandemic times?

We are doing wonderfully.

I actually grew my family in the midst of the pandemic.

My life experience throughout this time, having a baby and losing the father of my first child, is what pushed me to become a life coach.

We have 5 kids total and are a blended family of 7.

We were close knit during the pandemic and blossomed as a family more since the world has gone back to normal.

No complaints here!

How did the coronavirus pandemic affect your clients? Did it affect you at all?

The pandemic really activated something within my clients.

When the world shut down, I noticed that some people really struggled but others thrived exponentially over others.

My clients used the pandemic to slow down and find purpose in life.

It was an honor to help facilitate that for several of them.

It really put a lot of things into perspective for all of us.

I started a podcast called Just Women Talking Sh!t as a byproduct of being lonely and needed adult female friends to chat with.

They all said the same thing, that the pandemic forced them to slow down and focus on what truly matters.

What are the biggest lessons that you learned in this pandemic?

During the pandemic I learned so, so many lessons.

I built a family during the shutdowns.

In 2019, I was a single mom of one.

I had just begun dating my husband.

I certainly didn’t expect someone so new in my world to want to spend the lockdown with me, but I’m so glad he did.

The shutdowns taught me to focus on what matters.

It forced me to slow down and quit just going through the motions.

I began reading more, being more intentional, following my passions, and pouring into myself.

I finally had a partner who supported me which gave me confidence to follow my dreams while being my most authentic self.

In doing so, I was able to recognize that I had been living a toxic, unhealthy life for far too long.

I wanted more out of life.

The shutdowns showed me that.

They showed me that I did want a family, a husband, and people who love me surrounding me.

Because let’s face it, being stuck at home can really take a toll on your mental health.

I was beyond grateful to have what felt like an “overnight family” out of nowhere.

It helped me tremendously to not feel alone.

It also challenged me to do something more with my life.

I wanted to make my new husband and bonus children happy, yes, but making them proud became my top priority.

I became fully aware of how precious time with those we love truly is.

The pandemic taught me to never, ever take anything for granted.

The Origin:

Tell us about you, your career, how you started with your coaching career?

In 2019, I was a single mom.

I had started dating a fella but it was still so new.

A week before Thanksgiving that year, I was let go from my marketing position.

I was furious, humiliated, but above all, concerned to not have a steady paycheck coming in.

My daughter depended on me, but I knew with the state of my mental and physical health, I wouldn’t make it at another job in corporate America.

Plus, I really missed my daughter.

I worked so much that I had become the mom who takes her kid to school and put her to bed.

I hated not getting quality time with her. 

So I decided to use the month and a half severance salary to pay up my bills and get to work on my own things. 

Something in my brain switched.

I didn’t want to be at someone’s disposal ever again so I got creative. 

I posted in some groups what had happened and to my surprise, got a huge response.

I was freelancing in no time.

I realized my marketing skills were needed online.

I freelanced for a year or so, unemployment was helping me make ends meet since I wasn’t making much with my business, and then I became pregnant. 

Having another baby lit a fire under me like no other.

I decided in 2021 to pivot from freelance work to coaching instead. 

After several hiccups, I established myself as a marketing coach and created the Magnetic Marketing Academy.

I launched it one time and one time only.

It was a magical container.

However, every single client told me that although they came to me for marketing, they really felt I was an entire support system for them. 

I hated to admit that I wasn’t 100% happy in the marketing industry anymore, so I took a break and started a podcast.

In doing so, I began working with other coaches which lit that fire again. 

Early 2023, the Spiritual Support System was born.

The idea came to me in the shower and took life of its own.

I help people around the world unlock their full potential.

It’s a beautiful and delicate experience, journey, and responsibility.

What was your biggest obstacle that you had to overcome in your life that made you who you are today?

I have battled with my mental health and self identity since I was a child.

I grew up in a home where I witnessed a lot of drug, emotional, mental, and physical abuse.

As a child, I didn’t know anything about mental health or mental illnesses so I thought I was simply broken.

My anxiety controlled me up until 2020 and 2021, during the pandemic actually.

Considering I became divorced from my first husband in 2018, I was not looking for another relationship.

I finally realized that I had been trying to fill a void with relationships and love when the truth was, I didn’t even love myself.

Between 2018 and 2019, I made learning to love myself and take better care of myself a mission.

I became fixated with personal development and self help.

From there, I discovered works of authors like Mel Robbins and Dr. Joe Dispenza.

That’s when I discovered neuroscience and reprogramming the brain.

I became obsessed with figuring out why in the world I am the way I am.

During this time period is when I met my current husband.

In the midst of the pandemic, September 17, 2020, my daughter’s father passed away suddenly.

He and I were in the midst of a custody battle and things were getting pretty ugly.

This is when it all started coming together for me.

The survivor’s guilt had prompted me to learn more about spirituality and the quantum field.

Since 2020, I have been focused on evolving my brain obsessively.

It’s led me to gain control over my mental health, marry a man who is good for me and good to me, conceive and deliver a healthy child, build not one but two companies during the pandemic, hire employees before the money was truly there, etc.

All the things that used to stress me out, I’ve turned into super powers.

I feel more complete than I ever have and my mental health is better than it’s ever been.

I’m no longer a slave to my anxiety and depression.

I feel so free.

The girl who was too shy to make a phone call is now leading a coaching company, closing sales in the DMs, and living a life I truly love with my big, beautiful, blended, but wild family.

The Coaching Style:

How do you innovate with coaching your clients?

I feel that when people work with me they are part of an entire experience.

My clients know they aren’t just another number. 

When we work together, each 1 on 1 coaching relationship is so different, so I always create custom plans based on the person.

What is different about working with me, whether you hire me as a business and, or, life coach, is that I work with the person’s subconscious.

My goal is to help a person unlock their full potential in 6 months to a year.

The way we get such great results is because we go to the root of the problem, the brain.

I use neuroscience and a range of modalities to help my clients get results.

One way I’ve innovated the industry is I am creating a brand, not just a coaching business.

This means that my clients can also simply be customers.

I make it so that anyone can afford to work with me, whether that be in a free or paid container.

I have something for everyone ready to unlock their full potential.

What’s unique about your coaching approach?

I make people feel truly loved, seen, and heard.

I am a psychic medium so I use that a lot when working with my clients.

I have strong intuitive abilities which allow me to connect with my clients in a way they claim other mentors have never been able to.

In doing so, we build very intimate and long lasting relationships.

I aim to ensure my clients never feel like a number and advance in life quickly so they don’t have to retain my services.

I want people to truly grow and leave our coaching relationship behind.

In turn, we both have a friendship we can come back to no matter what phase of life we are in.

I’m not the coach who blows smoke up your ass and tells you what you want to hear.

If someone comes to me with a problem, I am compassionate but quick to help them snap out of the sob story and find power in it instead.

What benefits do your clients get after working with you?

I support my clients each step of the way.

Most of my clients find me and want me to help them start their own online brand with the end goal of leaving a legacy behind, or to help them scale their businesses in the early stages of financial success.

Those who work with me to increase sales can expect to increase their monthly income by $2,000 to $10,000.

Although I am typically hired for and seen as a visionary, at the end of the day, all my clients are in need of life and mindset coaching.

It never fails.

That’s because this business and life work balance can be extremely challenging sometimes.

When my clients initially come to me they’re often battling with mindset and, or, imposter syndrome.

By the end of working together, my clients are smiling, hopeful, confident in their skill sets, making money, and radiating because they’ve found alignment.

They’ve unlocked their full potential!

Do you use any specific tools to be efficient with your clients?

Absolutely.

I use a number of tools and modalities.

We use hypnosis, energy work, neuroscience techniques, meditation, shadow work (such as rage ceremonies, burn letters, and energetic releases), channeling, etc.

As far as tools to keep me efficient on the business side, I do have some systems in place that make my life a lot easier.

I depend heavily on Calendly, Zoom, HoneyBook, Flodesk, and my virtual assistants.

The Impact:

If you had a super megaphone that, when you speak into, the whole world will hear your message, what would you say?

Build a life you don’t want to take a vacation from!

You do NOT have to settle.

Do the best with the resources you have and make shit happen!

Everyone starts at the beginning.

Everyone starts with zero followers.

What is the greatest lesson you have learned in your life?

Quit worrying so damn much.

It all works out in the end.

I spent so many years just worrying myself about things I needed to do, things I hadn’t done, not being smart enough, pretty enough, wealthy enough, far enough along in life.

When the reality is, we can hit reset at any time.

We can become the person we want to become at any time.

We can change our lives, do more, be more, love more, accomplish more, at any time.

The moment that I learned to “release the timeline and commit to the result” is when everything changed.

I realized I had been wanting things to just happen for me and when they didn’t happen fast enough, I often threw in the towel.

That very thing is what kept me from success I deserved for so long.

So now, I live by “going with the flow” vibes.

I don’t second guess things.

I know that everything happens the way it happens for a reason and now find lessons in every situation.

I don’t compare myself or my success to others, I use it as motivation.

All in all, I learned that when you find alignment in life, that’s true happiness and how you collapse the timeline to achieve great results in any area of life.

Your final thoughts?

To anyone reading this who feels stuck in life, unfulfilled, or like they’re destined for more, don’t daydream, hope, and wish for change.

Do something about it.

It’s up to you to make life what you want it to be.

You have the power to do so!
