VP / Father
When Cody and I started working together, I was fully engulfed in a victim mentality that I had created for myself over years of refinement. I had just finalized my divorce and lacked intentionality in most phases of my life. I was tired. I was upset. I was angry. I was generally lost, but put on a mask every day that I “had it all together”. My time with Cody has included both Group work as well as 1 on 1 coaching. Both of which have been incredibly rewarding investments. Initially, I was drawn to Cody’s ability to relate to my situation and his practical advice to move forward. However, it wasn’t until Cody and I decided to work 1 on 1, did I really begin to see the major shifts in my mindset and my outcomes. We have worked through some incredibly personal and difficult topics together and Cody has provided me with the grace needed to get rid of those emotions, but also with the infrastructure to move forward with no more excuses.
My time working with Cody has dramatically improved how I show up in all areas of my life. I’m a better father. I’m better at co-parenting. I’m stronger, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I have developed sustainable and intentional habits that serve my purpose to fully show up for myself and my family. This has truly been the most transformative 120 days of my life.

I can't say thank you enough to my coach, Cody Jefferson. I hired him two months ago and little did I know he was about to totally transform my mind/life. Not only has he has helped me break down so many barriers but also helped me experience break through, too. He made me challenge every belief I had. I never got away with one sentence answers. He always wanted more for me. He never let me settle the easy way. What I thought I wanted in the beginning has totally changed now. He has taught me to believe in myself...like TRULY believe in myself. He'll forever be one of the pillar's that shapes the course for my journey! You're the best coach ever! Truly.

When I first started working with Cody, I was finalizing a divorce and was completely directionless of where I wanted to go in life, having left ministry after nearly a decade in it. As a result, I realized that I had always played my life on everyone else's terms. So the very first thing Cody had me do was figure out my why. I had never done that before, beyond trying to fit a certain image for everyone else. But he asked me to dig down deep into myself and figure out who I wanted to show up for, and what it would take to do it.
This wasn't the answer I was expecting at all to It wasn't easy. I honestly felt anxious and lost for a solid week. Questioning everything about myself, and everything about all the stories I had told myself over the years. When I finally came up answers it felt like I was able to skip over a giant and slow inevitable mid-life crisis to answer the difficult questions of my life right now. I wanted to be able to serve a new generation really well, and I wanted to do it through writing a book.
This wasn't the answer I was expecting at all to come up with, but it was suddenly crystal clear. Because of that, Cody's coaching changed my belief about what was possible, and how quickly it could happen. The things that I thought would take me years – with the habits and systems Cody helped me put into place made it possible for me to accomplish them just in three months.
This wasn't the answer I was expecting at all to In those three months. I finished writing a book, sent it off to an editor, lost 25 pounds, was lifting heavier than ever at the gym, and found myself opening up relationally and romantically again.
All because I started showing up for myself and my why, first and foremost, every single day before I even thought about how to do anything for anyone else.
I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that working with Cody has been one of the most fruitful, transformative, and effective times of my whole life.

Over the course of the summer I made a choice to work 1 on 1 with a mentor. It was not because I needed it. It was not because someone told me to.
It only took a split second to choose to change my life; a split second to get my power back and draw that line in the sand where I did not want to remain stagnant in business and in life anymore.
We were all meant to do more in life than just simply exist. We were meant to THRIVE. Not simiply survive.
Were the past few months of making that SHIFT within myself to move forward easy? NO!! It was A LOT of work and a lot of pushing forward and uncovering a lot of issues to guide myself towards a greater version.
I remember my first call with Cody like it was yesterday, feeling anxious and nervous most of the time. I was wanting to jump forward with life and just "reach my goals.” I just wanted to be "successful" in life. Truth be told though…I was not ready for success. I did not have the tools to use yet in my tool box for success. This was EVERYTHING we worked on.
What Cody guided me towards was digging deep within to uncover a lot of dirt – to uncover what was holding me back. How to communicate effectively, How to open the door for other people, How to LEVEL UP.
We worked on confidence, self love, self image, leadership skills, effective communication, systems, and how to add more value in order to guide others towards their more powerful and radiant version of themselves.
I can say with the utmost confidence that I NOW have the tools in my toolbox for success!
Coaching is there for those of us who are wanting to LEVEL UP our life. For those of us wanting MORE. For those of us no loner excepting the feeling of being stagnant!
Start walking towards those things that fear you the most versus pulling back from those thing sin life you fear! ETL is the pathway.
