WHO IS Julie-Anne Black

If your life was a TV show would you watch it?

My mission is to show you how to escape Groundhog Day, direct your future and be the star of your life. So you can make a massive difference, sharing your best work in the world and Be Brilliant Now.

Self-sabotage and the imposter syndrome are the biggest catalyst for our clients to stand in the wings rather than taking centre stage.

I believe the most spectacular results in people occur when your confidence, creativity and performance intersect and when you unleash these aspects remarkable things happen – your attitude shifts from dull to brilliant!

Are you ready to be brilliant now?

Producing a brilliant life is a lot like producing a hit TV show, you'll be a ratings success or flop depending on how you connect, engage and communicate with your audience.

Emerging Leader

When I first met Juls I was feeling unhappy with my life as a whole. Everything seemed dull on a day to day basis. I knew I wanted passion, colour, connection and meaning but I didn’t know how to articulate that - let alone manifest it. When I saw the short course on body language Juls offered at CAE I felt drawn to it as it offered insight into understanding why we behave the way we do. Investing in time with Juls to get crystal clear on what is important to me, and what type of life I ultimately want, was one of the most important decisions I've made. The support and advice that Juls gave me was invaluable! She has a unique ability to understand what I wanted to say when I couldn’t find the words and in helping to verbalise these deep and complicated thoughts, she helped me to have some big realisations. By getting clear on what I wanted, and most importantly why it had to happen, I have been able to manifest my dream of living in Mexico with my amazing partner and of living a balanced life of adventure yet comfort. I can now use what I learnt with Juls whenever I reach a cross roads and want to make a decision that feels right to me.Thank you Juls! You rock!!

Thank you SO, SO, SO MUCH for everything you have done for me, put up with and worked through with me. I’ve been trying to get this stuff sorted for the better part of 10 years and just never really found the right person. I knew right from the moment I met you that you were it.  I don’t think I have ever felt this light before in my life. I don’t feel so panicked and chaotic in my head and being which is an amazing relief that I am just not able to put into words. The very fact that I’ve attracted two of my largest paying clients to me in the time we have worked together is pure testimony to the work we’ve done. This process isn’t for the faint-hearted and you really do have to be willing to confront the demons you may have buried for a very long time, but the end result is SO worth it. Don’t live one more day of feeling like crap.  A loving, colourful, crazy-ass soul is waiting to navigate the path with you and it’s not as scary as you might think.  Cannot thank you enough Jewells – you are amazing more than words or actions could ever communicate.  MWAH!
