I’m Akai Jackson, America's Favorite Mindfulness Coach, Health and Wealth Development Expert, Professional Speaker, Author, and Owner of I.X.L As a business owner & life coach my agency helps curate mindset shift programs that take clients from existing to excelling in mental health, physical health, and financial health.
Growth excites me! The common theme of my career has always been helping people evolve and grow into the best version of themselves. I started in the fitness industry, training everyone from the daily gym-goer to nationally recognized athletes. I learned early on that the most successful people had to break through self-limiting barriers through mindset shifts to succeed in excelling at their goals. I applied that same rule to everything and soon realized fitness just wasn’t enough for people to attain true health. I applied those same mindset shift principles to a more holistic definition of health involving mindfulness, physical, mental and financial health. My development agency, IXL Today, was created in the truth that success isn’t defined by one single ingredient; instead, it’s applying core shifts to everything in the journey- reflecting, introspection, retraining the way you think, and speak to yourself. It’s my passion; it’s my purpose.
My grandmother laid this out for me when I was young. She said if you aren’t making other people feel better about themselves, you are wasting your time here on planet earth. I created IXL to help others go from existing to excelling. I wanted people to have the opportunity to experience happiness and financial security, and have power over their minds. Watching clients personally overcome their struggles, overcome their challenges, and genuinely have breakthroughs after their breakdowns are powerful! Like those light bulb moments! It’s special! My online coaching helps win the war people have in their minds. You can expect to be a different version of yourself in the end. A version where the winner you see in yourself every day, the hero you know you have within you- shows up.
I still face challenges, but that is how I know that these mindset shifts are working in real-life applications. Because of my mental shifts, I choose to try. I decide to make my days count. I do my best to control the outcome of everyday life through the choices that I make, and you can too. I NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS, thought this was where I would be. Growth brought me here, and this course can bring you here, too. Let me bring you from just existing to excelling. Now that you know what this is all about.
