Since 2016, I was a partner in a Life Coach company that downsized in 2019 and left me unemployed, and facing homelessness…again!

By special request of my online and offline friends who still wanted to become Life Coaches to earn an additional income stream for their families, I was encouraged to start my own Life Coach Certification training program online for Black women around the world.


I have a Bachelor’s if Science (BaSc) in Training and Development, an Honorary PhD (Doctorate) in Christian Psychology, and receiving a Masters in Life Coaching and Counseling. I’m a Certified Life Coach, and a Master Life Coach Certification Trainer.
I’ve trained and certified 160 Life Coaches around the world; 98% of them are African American and 1% Latina women.

My business challenges the societal norm of seeing non-African American women as successful owners of their own Life Coach businesses, practices, and companies.

It also challenges the stigma of black women in the online personal development/technology space being few and far between.

It challenges the stereotype that Black women can’t and don’t work together.

It challenges the coaching industry’s ‘norm’ to have people pay thousands of dollars for “accreditation” from a specific organization that’s attempting to dominate the Life Coach Certification training portion of the Life coaching industry.

The women I serve are 35-55+ year old moms, veterans, retirees, and soon-to-be empty nesters who have or are working in service-based organizations in corporate, church, or community and are seeking to finally reintroduce themselves to a society of other mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends by serving as a Black Woman Certified Life Coach, helping others set goals, achieve results and take action in their own life.

On April 14, 2008 I was homeless, dealing with a divorce and the death of my mother – on the same day.

Soon-after, my corporate job downsized and I spent the next few years getting my life together.

I decided to take control of my destiny.

But, I felt like I needed permission.

I had a burning desire for knowledge and a passion for helping others.

As a Psychology major at Clark Atlanta University, I vowed to ‘help others while helping myself’ understand life and heal our way through it.

April 27, 2013 (thanks to the help of a friend), I became an internationally recognized Certified Personal Life Coach through The International Coach Science Research Foundation where the Founder studied with the Father/Founder of the Life Coaching industry, Thomas J. Leonard.

I studied my notes from class, re-read the training manual, read tons of books, watched various DVDs and online videos, listened to countless cassette tapes, CDs, and audio books, attended any special event, conference, summit, panel, symposium, tele-conference, webinar, and seminar I could get access to or get my hands on.

What I learned, plus the framed certificate on my home-office wall gave me exactly what I needed to start my new journey as a Certified Life Coach.

Today, my business provides an online 1-day Life Coach Certification training for Black women of faith using my story and experience of growing my own six-figure Black Life Coach Training Company as a Black Woman Certified Life Coach since 2013, my expertise as a Master Life Coach Certification Trainer, and near decade of reading, and researching the Life Coach industry from it’s foundation to what’s “out there” now.

160+ Black Women Certified Life Coaches worldwide!

My business empowers women by helping breathe life into Black women and their lifelong dream of becoming a Certified Life Coach, and starting their own small business as a life coaching company, working from home to help them bring in extra income for their families.

Seeing me progress through the turmoil of homelessness, divorce, downsizing, and the death of my mom all on the same day to receiving an honorary PhD in Christian Psychology, growing an online business during a pandemic and such a time as these of civic, civil, and economic unrest, social injustice empowers women to believe that they too have it within themselves to make a positive impact on the world while building, living, and leaving a legacy for future generations to come.

My goal is to educate more women on how they too can continue to impact lives and earn extra income working from home as an internationally recognized Black Woman Certified Life Coach.

I use my story of homelessness, divorce, and the death of my mom — on the same day — to help black women online around the world achieve entrepreneurship by becoming a Black Woman Certified Life Coach online…in a day!

After the Certification, my year-long Mastermind and Mentorship, Boss of Me University, offers specialized trainings for winning clients and helping our Coaches get paid in their coaching company and build a budding life coaching business brand.

Maybe you’re like me, and all-too-familiar with the struggle-to-success story of starting, sustaining, and scaling a coaching company…

My coaching company, The International Center for Life Coach Training, LLC (ICLCT) and Boss of Me University™ is an online Training and Development Company for Coaches.

“Hi, my name is Melissa Dietrich. I’m the Associate Director of Longwood Gardens and I just would like to say working that with AJ has been fantastic. We have been working for two years planning a symposium for professionals of public gardens across the US. We had 117 colleagues join us. AJ was able to lead us through a workshop to talk about how to explore our gardens, but create a very specific message to connect to our donors, and our members, engaging them to help support public gardens. Thank you.”

Melissa Deitrich, American Public Gardens Association (Philadelphia)

“We just finished up a meeting of The Writers Guild, where AJ Austin was the Guest Speaker. She was phenomenal. She was off the charts! The people loved her nteractive workshop. The information was superb!” -Douglas County Writer’s Guild, Founder
