Jean-Gardner started out as a Group Mentor for eco-sustainable lifestyles in a San Francisco neighborhood, non-profit, grass-roots education project in the early 1990s. Later, he began 1-to-1 mentoring and coaching clients/patients in his holistic clinical practice since 1994. Then starting in 2011, as a digital media consultant, Jean-Gardner began business coaching/mentoring in mastermind groups for start-ups in the holistic wellness space since many prospective clients did not know which marketing products best suited them. Based on the current state of their business numbers (because numbers never lie), he set up and grew a creative consultancy in his city.
Desiring to follow his heart passion, going back to his roots, and wanting to have a greater social impact, he recently pivoted and launched GaiaThrive.com, a new creative agency and podcast, with a Circle here on GeniusU.
As a leading learner, Jean-Gardner’s focus is on supporting entrepreneurs in the Global Wellness Industry and those aligned with the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
