Janet Fouts is a coach, author, caregiver, speaker and facilitator. She teaches mindfulness and emotional intelligence to individuals and teams.
Janet trained with the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute to teach mindfulness and emotional intelligence, UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center in their Mindful Awareness Practices program, Dr. Rick Hanson’s Positive Neuroplasticity Practitioner program, and Stanford’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE). She earned her certification as resilience and coping facilitator from the National Wellness Institute.
Janet’s journey as a caregiver inspired the transition from social media marketer and CEO to mindfulness coaching after discovering the value of mindfulness and emotional intelligence in rescuing her from depression and anxiety. She shares her story in her book “When Life Hits the Fan, A Mindful Guide to Caring for Ourselves While Caring for Others” available on Amazon.
Janet’s studies and exploration in emotional intelligence, mindfulness, positive neuroplasticity, and positive psychology led to launching a second company, Nearly Mindful, where she shares her knowledge of mindfulness, meditation and bringing joy to life through a podcast, programs and writing.
