Dr. Jermaine Martinez

Professor, Life Coach, Budding Entrepreneur

Hi! I’m Jermaine.  I spent most of my adult life being somber, broody, and deeply introspective.  Sadness and depression where just ways of life.

I then made the mistake of pursuing a PhD when I turned 32.  By 34 I had reached an odd turning point in my life with even deeper and longer lasting depressions, anxieties, and pain that eventually culminated in a broken hand when I punched a wall in sheer frustration.

That’s when I decided to handle my shit.  With help from Leigh Louey-Gung and the Attraction Institute I set out to live an extraordinary life.  You can read all about that journey [HERE].

After of lifetime of feeling sad and somber, I have not felt any intense moods of sadness, self-loathing, anxiety, or loneliness in over 4 years.

Now I am 40 years old.  I have completed my PhD in Communication from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2016.

I’m teaching at small college in rural Pennsylvania.

I’ve been life-coaching with the Attraction Institute since 2013.

Now I’m looking forward to building my own coaching business, and seeing what is possible building other online businesses.

Welcome to my page!

Here I will share my experiences as I become a 40 year old entrepreneur, continue to grow in teaching and coaching, and share my perspective on various current events, issues, and public debates.
