Coach Jill Farmer

Once upon a time, Master-Certified Coach Jill Farmer was an Emmy Award-winning TV news anchor and journalist whose life was a never-ending hamster wheel of stress. She left the fast-paced world of TV journalism at the height of her career to prioritize her family… and she lived happily ever after. 

Well, not exactly.

Jill is a go-go-go-getter by nature, so she quickly transferred all of that energy into building and leading charitable organizations, which put her right back on the hamster wheel of stress.

Why does this keep happening to me? she wondered. So, she followed her journalistic curiosity to dig deep into the mechanisms of stress, workaholism, and busyness, which led to master certification as a time and stress management coach.

Jill wrote the book on coaching crazy-busy professionals. Literally. It’s called There’s Not Enough Time…and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves, which debuted as a bestseller on Amazon. Her work has been featured everywhere from Inc. to Fitness Magazine to The Washington Post’s Timehacker series on time management.

Nationally recognized as a “brilliant time optimizer and life maximizer,” Jill parlayed her dynamic TV personality into coaching, captivating audiences at the American Academy of Cardiology and Harvard Medical School among others. Her workshop attendees consistently report “profound shifts” in thinking that transform the way they work and spend their time.

Trust the thousands of busy professionals Jill has successfully coached: She will cut straight to the heart of your stress to liberate you from its shackles.

Expect to walk away with real tools and a fresh mindset to:

  • Accomplish more of what matters in less time.

  • Stop destructive stress.

  • Get your brain working for you, not against you.

  • Get better organized to accomplish what really matters to you.

In Jill's Own Words

"I love coaching doctors who are feeling stuck and overwhelmed. Often, I can give an outside perspective that will help you identify unhelpful patterns, capitalize on your strengths, and make simple, yet powerful shifts toward thriving.
