Julie Ford is a certified life coach, author, speaker, and trainer and the owner of Julz of Life. With one-on-one and group coaching, she helps her clients to define what matters most in their lives, and to realize what is and isn’t working. Collaboratively, they move through a customized plan to find more joy and less chaos in the everyday.
Many of Julie’s speaking topics are based on her workbooks and courses. Creating Time and Energy is her most resent publication now available on Amazon.
Julie speaks to groups and leads live and virtual classes on numerous topics related to creating values-based habits, prioritization, and keeping joy and passion in one’s work, parenting, and life. She specializes in helping organizations support their high performing parents through transitions. By teaching working parents how to keep their chaos level under “code yellow,” organizations increase engagement, effectiveness and retention. Additionally, parents can do the important work of raising the next generation without blowing into a flaming “code red.”
