Hi, I'm Jackie Ulmer!
Probably like you, I wear a lot of hats: wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, entrepreneur, business owner, keeper of the family, and PASSIONATE Life, Mindset and Health Coach.
I consider myself so fortunate for all of the opportunities, personally and professionally that life has presented me.
Yet, like most, these opportunities often came shrouded in challenges and obstacles.
Through this journey called life, I have encountered so many women, and others who get stuck on the “struggle bus.”
Feeling overwhelmed and stressed out; suffering from comparanoia and imposter syndrome. And, plain ole “Not Enough” syndrome.
A lot of this is cause by the many “hats” we wear, as I mentioned above and the “labels” we take on.
I know the struggles of trying to balance career and family, body image perceptions and constantly measuring my “B” roll against the “A” roll of others, especially now, with social media.
We can easily slide into a downward spiral of negativity around self image, health and wellness (weight), relationships, career and find our faith slipping, too.
Where do we find the fun again?
I’m glad you’re here! I’d love to share some concepts that have not only worked for me, but have allowed me to create that First Class Life.
While life is never perfect and 100% happiness is a myth…. I now have the tools and awareness to pivot when the “Struggle Bus” attempts to turn down my street.
My #1 SuperPower is mindset, and it is something I work on daily. Throughout the day, in fact.
We are taught and told what to think; we are never taught how to think.
The first time I heard the expression - Thoughts Become Things - it stopped me in my tracks. That was January, 1997.
I've studied and explored this concept since that time. I've spent a lot of time resisting it, for sure.
It's the top skill set I now coach on.
Your Checklist to Upgrade Your Life!
A Little About My Family
I am a proud wife and mom!
I count a successful (not perfect) marriage and a solid relationship with my two adult children as my greatest accomplishments.
My son serves our country as a US Marine, and he has a wife and daughter! I love my role as “GJ!” (Granny Jackie)
My daughter graduated from Northern Arizona University and is my favorite travel companion. We have so much fun together.
My Health Journey
My love of health and wellness started at a young age when my mom, way before her time, cleaned out the cupboards of most foods that were processed, canned, lacking “life force” and not “clean, whole and original.”
My dad was diagnosed with high cholesterol way backing my early childhood and my mom decided to use food as his “medicine.” And, the rest of the family followed suit.
Consequently, I raised my children and fed my family the same way, and focused on keeping my commercial airline pilot husband fit and healthy to pass his annual FAA Flight Medical (he’s never failed!)
Like many, when I began perimenopause, I began experiencing things I never had - the “Muffin Top”and some resistant weight, trouble sleeping, brain fog, and lack of clarity/focus. Life just seemed a little off kilter, yet I didn’t feel like I had changed anything.
So, I got busy, started researching and ultimately completed my Institute of Integrative Nutrition Health coaching certification.
I’ve been “coaching” friends and family members in this area for years, but nothing official. As a life and business coach since 2005, I know how important our habits are in every area of life.
A Few Mottos I Live By
“We don’t get our goals, we get our habits!”
“Track it to Hack it!”
“Time’s going to pass any way, why not give this a go?”
"It happened; I can't change it. How can I learn, grow and move on from here?"
Things you might not know about me:
I've been married to a Pilot for over 33 years, and so "Pilot Wife" is another label in my "label box.”
I've built a million dollar direct sales business; and coaching business, sharing my simple, proven formulas for success.
My goal is to live to be a centenarian, and watch 4 generations unfold in my family.
With one exception, I have loved every place I have lived in my life (the one was a bad relationship “thing.” No surprise, right?) including Durango, Colorado (hometown); Albuquerque, New Mexico; Nashville, Tennessee; Phoenix, Arizona; Lake Arrowhead, California; Ventura, California (right off the beach!); and currently, back to Scottsdale, Arizona.
One book changed my life - Mach II With Your Hair On Fire - I know, odd name. I realized after reading it how important our thoughts are to creating our reality.
I love to cook. I have an “Inner Rachael Ray” that comes out almost every day when I let go of business, stress and anything negative and start slicing, dicing and finding my most creative self.
I host the Pilot Wife Life Podcast and I am working on a book, mostly to help women navigate the sometimes turbulent, most often gorgeous “skies” of life, living, love and laughter.
Surprise - I love to travel and have told my husband I would live in a tent rather than give up my travel budget.
