Meet Saqunna and Jaqunna Trottie of E.I.G.H.T. Life in Lithonia

Today we’d like to introduce you to Saqunna and Jaqunna Trottie.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Saqunna and Jaqunna. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Initially, we were at a point in our lives where we felt like we were not being fulfilled. Every year we were going in the same circular living and not getting any results. We knew we always wanted to help people but we lacked the knowledge of getting started and that was very frustrating.

One day we met with our pastor to get guidance on what direction we needed to take next because we knew there was more to life than the same day to day routine that most people are living. We had to do some self-reflection and that is where we decided to invest in our biggest investment, which is ourselves. We took a program to develop our leadership skills, discovering how we are wired and learned how they play a part in discovering what our purpose is. So now today we are both Certified Life Strategist Coaches where we help individuals build character, realize dreams, and achieve destiny in every area of their life. We would not be where we are today if it was not for our faith in God and relying on him even when the times are hard.

Has it been a smooth road?
It has definitely has not been a smooth road to get E.I.G.H.T. Life to the point where we want it to be. The biggest challenge we seem to face is the lack of support. This is why it is so important to be your own biggest cheerleader. We had to develop a firm foundation in God. We had to believe in ourselves so when no one shows up, or no one by our product or services we can easily bounce back from the disappointment. Since there are two of us another challenge we face is difference of opinions regarding some decisions to be made, but we always come together to get what we want to accomplish done.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the E.I.G.H.T. Life story. Tell us more about your work.
We are E.I.G.H.T. Life and E.I.G.H.T. stands for Expect Increase & Great Harvest Today. We are Certified Life Strategist Coaches and our mission is to empower individuals and groups with the training and tools needed to develop strong lives and build incredible futures. We are excited that we use our gifts to help serve others by helping them discover their God-given abilities on the inside of them. We are here to empower individuals to take action in their lives to get to the end results they desire to see. Our creativity set us apart from others, you will have to follow us to see what we will accomplish in the future.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
We see that over the next 5-10 years the Life Coaching industry will still be here and thriving. So many people are searching for direction in their lives and what better way to get assistance than having a life coach. We do not foresee any big shifts because most life coaches deal with all areas of life that people need guidance on.
