Life is either a daring adventure
or nothing at all.

Meet Jane Bahneman

Be brave and explore your passion. Be wise and define your purpose. Then make this your life’s reality.

I’ll walk beside you as you step into your power as a female entrepreneur, helping you create a profitable business.

Because operating in survival mode stinks, right?

We’ll create alignment by defining what success means in your life, clarifying your “Why?” so your work is fueled by this greater purpose every day.

You’ll dig deep to reach your true potential, and I’ll support your development. We’ll implement strategies and systems so you achieve your goals. 

Why work with me? For starters, my brick and mortar business survived COVID, and expanded its offerings. That’s huge.

As the Founder of Nectar Yoga Studios, I’ve built my business from the ground up. I have a proven track record that my formula works. Business owners must expand in every area of their existence by overcoming obstacles, demonstrating patience, learning on-the-daily, executing with consistency, and stretching beyond perceived limits.

And it’s important to find a healthy mix of work and play. Your business shouldn’t own you, rather you should own your business – a profitable, fine-tuned business.

Total wellness and freedom in my life are my highest priorities. I run, lift weights, hike and camp, ski, raise my son, and cherish my loved ones. I’ll coach you to find your ideal balance, too.

You’ll build your dream business that supports your unique priorities. 

I’ve sharpened my skill set over two decades, and now I’m using these tools to serve you.

I’ll pull the best out of you. Am I talking your talk?
