Janet feels blessed that God granted her a passport of more time; having survived a near death experience, a physical attack that took place more than 15 years ago whilst visiting an island off the coast of north Africa. Janet believes her calling in life is to serve and make a difference in the lives of others around the world. She speaks on women’s issues, personal growth and leadership.
Lessons in Leadership!
“I was first introduced to John C. Maxwell’s work in 1998 at the start of my leadership journey in the USA. I share his passion for leadership, teaching and serving others. I believe he has helped shape the leader I have become! Sports and leadership have a lot in common. As a competitive gymnast for more than 10 years you learn things like discipline, hard work, teamwork, persistence, patience, endurance, creativity and the ability to vision, plan, execute and accomplish! You also learn how to overcome challenges and press forward”.
Janet’s compassion, empathy and humility ignited her passion to lead and develop others from a young age. Her father a social worker and former math teacher had sparked her interest in teaching and helping others. Her leadership career began at 19 leading staff and managing a travel agency. By the time she was 26 she led a district of 300 independent business owners and was the youngest leader on the team. At 27 she got on a one way ticket to the USA and in time would lead an independent sales force of up to 800. At 34 she became a Regional Manager for a global skin care company leading a region that consisted of 13 states, 90 leaders and 2,000 independent business owners. At 35 Janet’s coaching business, Leadership In Excellence, was born and shortly after she was blessed by the birth of her daughter.
“Being a full time stay-at-home Mom is one of the most rewarding and yet challenging experiences, and one I would not trade for the world. The time you spend with your child is golden. The transition from career driven corporate leader to being a full-time stay-at-home Mom is certainly quite a journey. You learn to become more patient, flexibility is a must, as is a sense of humor!”.
Janet later took on a role as Area VP of business development with a national home care company where she successfully led an outside sales team of professional sales executives and clinicians. Today she continues to serve and helps others through her teaching, coaching and speaking on the following:
- Women’s Issues (Breast Cancer, Domestic Violence, Rape, Work Place Bullying, Self Esteem)
- Personal Leadership (Discipline, Productivity, Focus, Getting it done)
- Servant Leadership (Love. Serve. Lead Make a Difference)
- Team Development (Organizations, Direct Sales home based business)
- Business Transformation (Direct Sales home based business)
- Leaders Developing Leaders (Leadership Development)
- Coaching for Higher Performance (Women, Men, Youth)
- Leave a Legacy (How to write a book)
- Youth Leadership (Bullying, Self Esteem, Goal Setting, Mindset, Leadership)
“As leaders we never stop learning, it’s a personal dedication, a commitment to love, serve, lead and develop others”
Love – Serve – Lead – Make a Difference, Leave a Legacy!

“My sincerest thanks to Janet for the opportunity to help parents and teachers through her outstanding leadership work. We share a loving concern for children. We value the growing need to address their natural curiosity and to engage their attention…even for just a minute. The Teachable Minute: The Secret to Raising Smart & Appreciative Kids, is my way of addressing those needs. The book grew from a tiny seed in my head, planted by an observation of a little boy whose Mom was focused on her cell phone for 45 minutes instead of on him…lost opportunities. My goal is to reach at least 1,000,000 parents and all of their kids! Janet’s encouragement has pushed me higher and farther along the path. She understands HOW to take a seed, help it grow, and watch it bloom…With gratitude…Dr. Connie Hebert, National Speaker, Author, & Reading Expert
“As a 24 year cancer survivor, who is definitely a thriver, I immediately gravitated to this book based on its title. However, it was the incredibly diversified stories of inspiration, the depth of love and compassion expressed, the insightful and soul-probing questions included, and the simple, easy to implement, spiritually based strategies, that make this book a “must” read for both the patient and the caregiver alike.” – Marilyn Joyce, RD, PhD, Founder & CEO of “Kick Cancer In The Can”, and author of “INSTANT E.N.E.R.G.Y.™: The 5 Keys to Unlimited Energy & Vitality
“A Champion’s Guide to Thriving Beyond Breast Cancer is a gift to all who must walk the path of cancer because it goes BEYOND the initial stages and challenges. It uses the ‘power of the story’ to inspire and encourage readers. It uses the ‘power of reflective insight’ to help readers say, “Hmmm…” as they read. It uses the ‘power of sharing’ to create a community for those who truly KNOW. Author Janet I Mueller said it best when she wrote:
“Life is like the Olympics. It’s a series of events. Run in such a way as to win the race. You receive honor, victory, and crowns for your accomplishments.” True! I hope you will be as touched by this powerful book, as I have been. Let other women know about it” – Dr. Connie Hebert, National Literacy Consultant & Author of The Teachable Minute: The Secret to Raising Smart & Appreciative Kids.

“I have considered and discarded the idea of investing in a personal coach for many years. In the meantime, I’ve tried practically every other way to accelerate my business to the next level…books, videos, tapes, ezines, conference calls, online courses, and live events. Nothing helped, until I received a FREE coaching session with Janet. WOW…what a difference an hour can make!! I got off that first coaching call with definite steps that I could take to move me forward. My family and business colleagues saw an immediate improvement in my attitude, my focus, and my sales and recruiting results; and wholeheartedly encouraged me to continue my coaching sessions. I have BIG DREAMS!! I’m willing to work harder to achieve them. I also want to work smarter and not waste my precious time on things that won’t bring results. I believe the coaching sessions with Janet will continue to help me move toward my Dreams at an accelerated rate. I highly recommend Janet.”

The support and motivation given to me from Janet just made me want to do more and more and I started to eat, sleep and breathe Avon. Leadership started slow but again with the guidance of Janet and my upline leader I was able to achieve Unit Leader – Janet was everything Avon stands for, she was our guidance, our support, our motivator, our “Go to” person our friend and our biggest fan.”

She is passionate, enthusiastic and makes me want to be the same way in regard to my business.”
