Lumia Testimonials & Reviews

Lumia (formerly JRNI) has proudly graduated more than 2,500 coaches to date, with more joining their ranks every day. We asked our coaches to share their takeaways about the Lumia experience in their own words and here’s their honest, unvarnished reviews of this life-changing program.

Tiffany Montoya

I was looking for a program that would provide me with a 'stamp of approval' as I started my coaching business, but I didn't only want the 'stamp' offered by so many weekend courses. I wanted a solid foundation of knowledge and practice. Lumia gave me actionable content from excellent instructors, meaningful and diverse connections with my cohort of coaches, and time to develop the foundation of my business at the same time I was elevating my coaching skills. It is tempting to take the quickest route from point A to point B, but if you arrive at point B without the roadmap to point C, you will be lost. Invest your time and money in a program that will provide a solid certification AND the knowledge, connections and practice you need to run a thriving coaching business. Lumia is that program! At Lumia, all of my unique experience, perspective, and potential were valued and leveraged in a very open and diverse community. Access to thought leaders at all levels of the community was amazing!

I left my executive corporate HR Leadership role in 2021. I decided to launch what had been my "side gig" of coaching and consulting as a full time endeavor. I chose Lumia because of the people. From John Kim and Noelle Cordeaux (who lead with authenticity), to each and every one of the people I have met, everyone is there to support your growth. I went from no coaching engagements to reengaging with former clients, getting referrals and attracting new clients since joining Lumia.

Before I began at Lumia, I was adjusting to being retired and trying to figure out what's next for me. I was on this same question for about a year when finally, I knew in my heart, it all added up to being a life coach. What's great about Lumia is that your uniqueness is celebrated and they teach you how to bring your story to coaching. As a graduate now, the academic training was thorough too.
