“Turn leadership into your greatest profit-center and the vehicle to live your best life!”

René Johnson, CEC
The Power Zone Coach





My Story.
 My Mission.

My journey has tested me. But if I’d listened to all those who thought it was better to play it safe, not take the risks to break the cycle, I’d miss out on belonging to my true self.

Since I can remember, I’ve felt called to a greater purpose – the calling I now claim as an inspired leader and gifted empowerment coach. My personal story is one of courage and defining moments, which led to my life path of helping others find their voice and deeper power to make significant changes.

Against the odds, in the early nineties, I escaped a marriage of what the District Attorney would later say, “was the worst case of domestic violence he ever saw, I was lucky to be alive.” I realize now this was a pivotal part of fulfilling my purpose, though it wasn’t clear at the time, nor did it feel inspired and blissful. I thought I was only acting out of survival instinct to protect me and my children.

Eventually, I recognized that it required courage, planning, focus and unrelenting spirit to go through the transformation and grueling legal process to start a new life. Every time I have stepped into fear and away from comfort, I’ve grown, learned something new about myself, and claimed a deeper power expressing my potential more completely.

Now it is my life’s work to teach others how to claim their voice, inspire change, and be the leader their life deserves achieving the visions they never thought possible.
