Unlock the Secrets of Leadership and Legacy with Jonathan Milligan

Ever found yourself standing at the crossroads of your career, the wind of uncertainty howling around you? That’s where Jonathan Milligan once stood before he charted a path to becoming a beacon for those journeying through the realm of personal development and online entrepreneurship. In our enriching conversation, Jonathan peels back the layers of his evolution, from a high school teacher wrestling with direction to an acclaimed author and coach. His story, marked by a parking lot epiphany and the courage to seize his entrepreneurial destiny, echoes the universal quest for purpose—a tale that promises to resonate with every listener who’s ever dared to dream of more.

Settle in as we unravel the intricate dance of leadership and legacy building with the man who once bore the title ‘Mr. Practical’—a moniker he transformed from a bland label into a testament to his unique gift for simplifying the complex. Through Jonathan’s insights, we explore the steadfast nature of purpose amid life’s ever-changing roles and the profound significance of hope and meaningful projects in shaping our lives. This episode isn’t just an interview; it’s a masterclass in cultivating influence and identity, serving as a torch for both emerging leaders and seasoned mentors alike on their quest to leave an indelible mark on the world.

1 Resource That You Might Find Helpful

This time of year, many small business and agency owners think about taxes, and I wanted to share my experience with an amazing accounting and tax professional, John Leland. I’ve been working with John for 6 years, and in that time John has proven to not only understand the small business/entrepreneurship space, but the non-profit/church space as well. John’s company, The Honest Accountant, is a full-service CPA firm that provides expert services to founders and CEOs. This can range from entity creation to accounting system setups/clean-ups, monthly accounting work, outsourced CFO, taxes and more! I recommend John Leland often; that’s the highest compliment I can give. If you’re looking for an accounting or tax professional, reach out to John. He’s the real deal.


We’re just over the halfway point of the first quarter of 2024. Has this year been different so far from last year? Or more of the same? Are you breaking old habits and sticking with new ones?

How can you get out of your own way and take steps to become the leader that your team and your company need you to be? It’s not just going to happen. It takes intentionality. And that’s where coaching comes in.

As an Executive Coach specializing in Mindset and Leadership, I work with entrepreneurs, founders, executives, and C-suite leaders who want to become catalytic in their leadership. Through 1:1 coaching, my clients move from where they are (stuck) to where they want to be.

For March, I currently have availability to take on 2 new clients. I don’t accept every person who approaches me about coaching; in fact, I turn down those who I believe are not ready or a good fit for what I do. If you’d like to explore whether Executive Coaching is your next step toward the impact you want to make, let’s talk. No hard sales pitch. If it’s not right for both of us, I’ll tell you so. My goal is to help leaders get out of their own way, stop breaking their own businesses and teams, and move into being catalytic in their impact and their legacy. If you’re ready, book a time for us to talk.
