I’m Jennifer Mattiola (née Yau), a Personal Development Coach loving life with my husband, living on the beach in Los Angeles. I received my diploma in Marketing Management and Communications at BCIT (British Columbia Institute of Technology), and studied Business Administration and Psychology at Kwantlen University College in Canada.
I worked in the fashion industry for more than two decades, which allowed me to not only live in Vancouver, BC (where I’m from), but also in New York City and Los Angeles for a number of years. I’ve held positions as Western Canada Sales Manager, Senior Account Executive, Director of Trade Shows, and Sales Team Trainer - all for a global denim and apparel brand, based in New York.
After leaving the corporate business world, I founded a leather goods and accessories company in 2012 that was dedicated to manufacturing sustainable goods made ethically from recycled leather with Fair Trade partners. Loved by retailers and customers across North America and internationally, I sold the company in 2018 to focus on what I’m truly passionate about: helping people bring out the best versions of themselves so that they can do amazing things in the world and live a life they love.
My other passions include my close relationships, where I get to choose to be happy, everyday. I love to travel - I’ve visited 6 continents already and plan to keep exploring this incredible planet we call home. The different foods and cultures around the world alone are enough to make me want to check out new countries, year after year. I love adventure and sports, and I’m definitely a health nerd when it comes to nutrition and optimization.
MY CORE VALUES
My job is to help you move towards a more enriching and fulfilling life.
Our actions stem from two places, and two places only: Love and Fear. When we operate out of Fear, we are inauthentic (not being true to ourselves or what we want) and we often don’t get the results we ultimately desire. When we come from Love, we are genuine and sincere. From Love is where we make the real change. Love for ourselves, and love for others.
My goal is to help you develop the skills and tools you need to confront anything that comes up in your life and master the process so that the challenges are seen as opportunities for growth, rather than failures. My desire is for you to feel empowered to make the big changes and transition into the life you’ve always wanted for yourself - for you to be exactly who you want to be and to receive what you deserve.
The most inspiring people are strong, determined, and not afraid of doing the work to get the desired results they want for themselves.
These are the people I work with. And my goal is to help these people – people like you – accomplish more great things. Each and every day.
