Jamal Jivanjee is a best-selling author, podcaster, and full-time life coach. As an author with over 25 years of experience working with people in various stages of personal struggle and challenges, after traveling to many cultures around the globe, and now as a full-time life coach, Jamal has discovered the common roots of human suffering along with the sustainable solutions required to help people become liberated and empowered. Jamal is passionate about serving individuals, couples and groups on the path toward enlightenment, wholeness and liberation.  Though helping to identity and clear energetic systems of belief that create fear, disharmony and disease, Jamal seeks to restore awareness of the ever present and unitive divine flow of abundance, good will and love that exist for us all physically, mentally and spiritually.

Jamal was raised in Columbus, Ohio and grew up in a religious home, his father a devout Muslim and his mother an equally staunch Catholic. is parents were bound by their intellectual curiosity and their shared passion for books, which they passed along to their son. Driven in part by his voracious appetite for meaning and significance, Jamal came to the faith in Christ as a young adult and heard the call to ministry. He served as the pastor of his local church for a number of years until his personal journey eventually led him away from institutional religion altogether.

Jamal started his work life as a corrections officer, then reemerged as the leader of his local church before ultimately transforming into a life-coach and writer. The path he traveled might seem random at first glance, but his explanation of exactly what he learned from each profession makes it clear that each step taken would not have occurred without the experience of the previous step.

While interacting with prisoners, Jamal discovered that he loved working with people who were in desperate need of help due to a life of hardship. From that point on, each subsequent move he took made perfect sense in the evolution of becoming who is he today.

Jamal’s evolution is relevant to countless Americans’ paths today. Thousands quite their jobs en masse in The Great Resignation after coming to a collective epiphany that the pandemic forced them to discover. They weren’t happy. We all know that jobs or careers can leave us feeling unfulfilled, but should they leave us feeling downright miserable?

A recent Pew Research Center survey found that low pay, a lack of opportunities for advancement and feeling disrespected at work were the top reasons why Americans quit their jobs. The survey also found that those who quit and are now employed elsewhere are more likely than not to say their current job has better pay, more opportunities for advancement and more work-life balance and flexibility.

Why does it take something enormous like a global pandemic for us to declare that we deserve better?

Jamal likes to ask those who are looking for guidance -- what if you were told by your doctor that you had six months to live? How would your day today change? How much time and energy would you spend on drama and arguing with others? The point he makes is that we must not waste time waiting for the weekend or a vacation, much less retirement or even the promise of heaven itself. Living needs to begin today.
