Janet Tyler Johnson, CFP®
I’m Janet Tyler Johnson, the founder of Corporate Hostage, No More! You’ll notice in the picture above that I’m looking at something — it’s your future. I can see it and it’s making me smile.
Your future is amazing. You’re working where you want, when you want and with whom you want. You’re spending more time with your family than you ever have, and working remotely from fabulous locations.
Sound like a fairy tale? Well, it’s not.
I left corporate America in 2005 and have never looked back. Never before has my life been so free. I finally have the time and money to enjoy things that are important to me again. No more living for the weekends.
And because I escaped from those corporate confines my husband and I were able to relocate to the Land of Enchantment — beautiful New Mexico. We truly are living our dream, and you can too!
I know even thinking about giving up your corporate job can feel scary. I’ve been there! But, with the right help, you can feel safe and confident that your escape will be a successful one.
Since 2005 when I escaped I’ve helped hundreds of clients plan and implement a successful escape plan. But I don’t stop there. I also help them create soul-based businesses where they can thrive.
For the past 30 years I’ve been a Certified Financial Planner® professional. In my career I have worked in small firms, mid-size firms and large firms, my last, and I do mean last, corporate job was running the wealth management division for the 12th largest CPA firm in the U.S.
In addition to my financial planning and investment management experience, I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Metaphysics, am a Certified Akashic Record practitioner, and a soul-based energy practitioner, all of which took years of study, mentoring and proficiency.
Over the course of my career, I have worked with thousands of clients just like you who wanted to live the life of their dreams. I have coached hundreds of clients to leave businesses they hate and create businesses they love. A few of these were young Certified Financial Planners® that I mentored pro-bono which was my way of giving back to the profession I’ve been part of for so long. All of the rest were in a variety of professions all with the same thing in common — they wanted to escape a corporate job for good!!
And if you’d like to know a few other things about me:
- I sing and play the piano, not too shabbily by the way;
- I love chocolate;
- I am usually reading about four books at a time;
- I am married to my best friend, Randy; have three grown step-children, and five young and very active step-grandchildren;
- And my “kids” include my cat Bear, and my two adorable chihuahua mixes — Sunny, who, like me, loves to lay in the sun and Luna, fondly referred to as Lunatic, who is six pounds of sheer love and joy.
