About Julie

2018, Julie and Genevieve in Dexter, MI

Julie Cook has worked in the global technology field for over 25 years, primarily in the Learning and Development space.  In her spare time, she writes books and articles, and between publications,  she practices life-coaching.  She was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan and currently lives with her family in Dexter, MI.


Favorite Authors: Emmet Fox, Ayn Rand, Neville Goddard, Mike Dooley

Favorite Topics to Write About:  I write when something important needs to be said, and I can’t find anyone else saying it.  My life is very full and busy and I don’t seek out topics to write about.  But, if I become aware of a truth that isn’t being told, or a great need for information that isn’t out there, it gnaws at me until I fix it.

Why Life Coaching?  If I had the time, I’d accept life-coaching clients all day long.  Even though one of my degrees is a PhD in Psychology, I don’t have an interest in traditional therapy because it often focuses on the past. I greatly prefer life coaching because it focuses only on the present and the future. I can help take a person from where they are today, to where they want to be.  If a person can define a goal, there is always a set of steps (mental and physical) that can be identified and put in order, that will get a person from precisely where they are now, to where they want to be.
