About Nanette Jordan

A lifetime of demonstrating dogged determination and fearless change is Nanette Jordan's trademark.
Her life path has struck a unique course from designer to corporate marketer, from mother to teacher, and from mentor to certified coach.

After receiving her college degree, Nanette began a career designing bold marketing programs and dynamic sales campaigns working with Fortune 100 Companies. The result?.....a solid twenty year foundation for Nanette's own future businesses: NanetteDesigns and Jordan Coaching.

Then at the age of 42, Nanette decided to hang up her "power suits" and become a mother, adopting Mayan Indian baby Delia. With no firm plan for their support, in what has become Nanette's signature "can-do" spirit, she leapt........and a net appeared.

While tending to her first and most important commitment as a mother, Nanette resurrected a childhood hobby, making earrings at the kitchen table. She'd put Delia in a stroller, walk into local boutiques with her jewelry... and she would walk out with a check. Nanette never imagined that her solid twenty year foundation in marketing would catapult her beyond her wildest dreams running a successful business as a serious jewelry designer. Hence 'NanetteDesigns' was born.

Since then, The Smithsonian's Renwick Museum as well as many other fine galleries, museums and stores worldwide have featured her work.

Her designs have traveled to Japan with the California Gold Collections over a span of five years.

She is honored to have exhibited her work in museum collections alongside works by Andy Warhol, Christo, designer Kenneth Cole, and Yoko Ono. Pieces are in the collections of such notables as Oprah Winfrey and Celine Dion to name a few.

Other experience spans successfully selling her work at numerous prestigious juried art festivals, managing a team of wholesale reps, and mass-producing collections for well-known department stores such as Marshall Fields and Nordstrom, and for catalogs such as Coldwater Creek and Sundance.

A number of years ago Nanette began mentoring other up-and-coming artists and designers on marketing and selling their work. This evolved into marketing coaching for a broad spectrum of businesses. Nanette offers workshops, has taught college courses, writes articles, and presents speaking engagements. She also continues her individual Life Coaching.

She has taught Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development at schools such as The Fashion Institute of San Francisco (FIDM), has offered workshops and seminars at California College of The Arts in Oakland (CCAC), and at College of Marin.

In recent years, NanetteDesigns has taken a back-seat to her coaching. Ready for another major life shift, Nanette Jordan retired from designing and embarked on the schooling necessary to become a certified professional coach. Attending the Coaches Training Institute in Marin, an accredited International Coach Federation School, and receiving her professional certification in 2006 (CPCC), Nanette continues her ongoing education as a Co-Active Coach. Nanette is also certified by The International Coach Federation (ACC).

As a life-coach, Nanette and her clients address issues ranging from pursuing life purpose and understanding one's calling, to family dynamics, career transitions, and transformative goals.

In business, Nanette coaches within companies of all sizes on leadership, increasing sales, team-building, marketing, and on a greater positive impact.

All of Nanette's successes have grown out of her resolve to remain centered in her purpose. May you use your gifts to create a daily masterpiece.
