On scarcity in schools, committing to our edification, wealth as activism, and standing back to back as we heal.

Jesse Johnson is a master sales and success coach, specializing in helping spiritual entrepreneurs build 7-figure businesses. An artist, activist, and educator, Jesse's career began with 12 years teaching math in NYC public schools. Frustrated by the limits of both bureaucracy and poverty, she founded her own personal development company and blew her own mind taking it to 7 figures in just 2 years. Jesse now teaches coaches, spiritual leaders, and healers to experience sales as a spiritual practice and match their income with their personal mastery - no compromise, no self-sacrifice, no mediocrity.
