Jamal Jivanjee is a best-selling author, podcaster, and full-time life coach. As an author with over twenty years of experience working with people in various stages of personal struggle and challenges, after traveling to many cultures around the globe, and now as a full-time life coach, Jamal has discovered the common roots of human suffering along with the sustainable solutions required to help people become liberated and empowered.

Do you live in survival mode?

This is when one goes about their day-to-day life, trying only to survive without thinking about the future. Jamal started his journey in life doing just this. When he worked as a correctional officer, he found that many inmates and correctional officers were doing the same. His life experiences went from being a correctional officer to being homeless and not wanting to live. Now he has learned how to live and helps others do the same.
