LaDena Chisum, a native of Waukegan, IL. LaDena is a Wife, Mother, Kingdom Citizen, Certified Spiritual Life Coach for Women, Young Adult Success Coach, Empowerment Speaker, Blogger, and Radio Host. After years of tackling life on her own accord, there was a urge to surrender her life to a higher power. LaDena is all too familiar with making the same choices hoping for different results. The decision to surrender it all to God led directly to purpose. Understanding her purpose and walking in it were two different things but choosing to build an intimate relationship with God, her steps were being ordered. Overcoming Domestic abuse, single parenting, rejection, abandonment, and low-self esteem. Her purpose and passion is to help others understand the process of walking unapologetically bold and purposely authentic! Which in her words, means "LIVING RADICAL!" Process means, a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end. LaDena affectionately called Coach "L" understands from her personal journey that we all have a past and our past has nothing to do with our future. Being a personal process coach sets the tone that there will be an action plan in place to uncover and rediscover to reach a destination, which is PURPOSE!
LaDena attended the Tony Gaskins Life Coaching Academy to obtain her life coaching certification in 2017. Throughout the process, LaDena began to heal from past generational dysfunctions by acknowledging her truth, forgiveness, and understanding of how traumatic experiences shaped her mindset and thought process. Ultimately, she identified the circumstances and choices in her life were the steps endured to uncover her purpose. Through her healing she became dedicated in helping others journey backwards to the root cause in order to move forward. Purpose was the key that unlocked the dedication to coach.
