Unleash Your

creativity, intuition, purpose

Step into your next level

Have you experienced a high level of success in your business? But you worry about burning out if you continue at this pace? If you’re on a mission to build a business you love, stress less, and have more time for what matters most, I can help you.

As the founder and CEO of Jadah Sellner Media, I help visionaries like you, tap into a deeper level of creativity, unlock your next level of leadership and become a thriving business owner (without destroying your life or burning down everything you’ve built).

Drawing on my own experience as an entrepreneur for over a decade and mentoring hundreds of women from start-ups to $5 million a year companies, I know what it takes to not only survive hard times, I know the steps to take to thrive in business and in life. I understand the unique challenges we face as women to build a company while balancing our personal lives too.

Representation matters

As I started my path as an entrepreneur, the thing that was missing was mentorship. I desired guidance from women sharing their entrepreneurial journey in a real way. I read all of these books written by white men with no children from Ivy League colleges, and I couldn’t relate.

I wasn’t sure how I would build a business when all the odds were stacked against me. I was married, a mom to a young daughter, and a multicultural black woman of color (I’m 40% African American, 30% Chinese, 30% White – I cover all continents on my 23&Me except Australia). I also had no college degree, lived with my in-laws, and had a mountain of credit card debt. Without seeing any representation of myself in the business books I read, I had to figure it out on my own.

BECOMING RESOURCEFUL
I started my first brick and mortar business in Kauai at the height of the economic crash in 2008. I didn’t have much of a choice. Nobody was hiring. I was a first-time mom trying to support my family and survive. So I started a business out of necessity.
CHOOSING RESILIENCE
I wore so many hats in the business, juggled mom duties, and was stretched too thin. With no mentors or guidance, my worst-case scenario came true, my first business failed. We moved back to California to live with my in-laws to make ends meet.
EMBRACING REINVENTION
$42,000 in debt, I fought with my husband over money we didn’t have. I felt completely burned out. I reached a breaking point. My confidence was shaken. I was tired of living paycheck to paycheck, and barely scraping by. I knew something had to change.

Burnout is not an option

I knew I had to build my business differently. I promised myself I wouldn’t compromise my health and my relationships again. I wanted to grow a business that gave me more flexibility in my schedule and more financial freedom, so I didn’t have to sacrifice time with my family.

I went on to start several more companies, including Simple Green Smoothies, a company I co-founded with my friend Jen Hansard and sold in 2016 after growing the business from $0 to over $1 million in sales in the first two years. With business strategies rooted in love, I built our online community to over 400,000 Instagram followers, 300,000 Facebook fans, and 355,0000 email subscribers.

What I learned from my own business ventures over the past 12 years is building a business that causes burnout is not sustainable. I teach women how to take their business to the next level and be more fulfilled in their life with a proven 4-step process, Build with L.O.V.E.™ Method: LEAD with confidence, OPTIMIZE your support systems, VISUALIZE a compelling future, and EXPAND visibility and partnerships.
