About Julie, Leadership and Business Coach

Julie Smith, Leadership and Business Coach

Julie Smith

Hello, I’m Julie Smith, Leadership and Business Coach. I partner with individuals and groups to help them build their vision and reach their goals with Clarity, Focus, and Purposeful Action.

My clients include purpose-driven professionals, entrepreneurs, active and emerging leaders. It is my true passion to help others to stretch and grow personally, professionally, and as leaders.

My Role as Leader

An experienced marketplace leader, I strive to bring excellence, integrity, and purpose to everything that I do.

For more than twelve years I worked in the corporate world in Human Resources management, and training and development. I’ve worked on the teams of numerous multi-million-dollar business coaches and speakers, leading teams and managing marketing efforts. I’ve devoted more than twelve years as an entrepreneur and business owner. More recently, I’ve worked with entrepreneurs and nonprofits in marketing consulting and coaching, as well as web design and strategy. I also serve on staff at Professional Christian Coaching Institute as marketing advisor and community manager.

As a leadership and business coach, I believe we are all leaders — in our work, our families, our communities — every place where we have influence. All are created for a specific purpose. It is my honor to inspire others to clarify their vision and purpose, and to build upon their strengths and gifts as individuals and leaders so that they may impact and effectively lead others in transformational ways.

I also believe that in order to live and lead with strength, purpose and impact we must be fit to serve. Within that belief lies my core value and passion for health and wellness. Creating optimal and holistic wellness involves how we eat; how we move; how we live; how we think; how we connect with others; how we work; and how we serve. It is my passion to help others create optimal wellness so that they’re strong and healthy, feel great, and are bringing the best version of themselves. They become free to serve with a sense of purpose in family, work, and community.

Julie the Entrepreneur

Having established and grown my own successful business for more than ten years, and working closely with entrepreneurs from start-up to million-dollar growth, I understand their challenges and opportunities. I understand the importance of vision, of purpose, and of passion in order to conceive, build, and grow a sustainable business, movement or initiative.

In building teams, I understand that people have very specific needs in order to engage as confident, committed individuals who give their best and work together, effectively, toward a goal.

Just Julie

In all that I do, I strive to live my life with Christ as the center and foundation, and my core values of faith, family, integrity, learning/growth, wellness, and excellence as my directional compass.

I live in Des Moines, Iowa, with my husband, four kids, and one impossible (but lovable) dog. My hobbies include singing, music of all kinds, a good cuppa joe, gardening, reading, and being with my family.
