Success Unfiltered Podcast

Jenna Phillips Ballard

Jenna Phillips Ballard began her career in 2006 as a certified personal trainer and life coach for celebrities and has been featured on Dr. Phil and The Doctors. Halfway through her career, she realized that she had a bigger calling.

She’s on a mission to motivate and inspire as many people as possible to become leaders and make this world a better place. Jenna wants everyone to truly fall in love with themselves, because Self Love will heal this planet. She discovered the power of Self Love when she made a full recovery from brain damage after waking up from a coma in 2000. Her commitment to making a full recovery depended solely on how she thought of herself, and she realized that her purpose is to empower others to break through their limiting beliefs and create an unforgettable life.

In 2016, she co-founded Ascension Leadership Academy with her husband and together they have coached hundreds of people into their greatness. She is also the founder of Unicorn University – an online membership community where women never spend another day being beige, broke, or behaved.
