We had the good fortune of connecting with Jillian and Jan Yuhas and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jillian and Jan, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Our life passion and mission began to unfold at the fresh age of twenty-one when we volunteered to work with families and children who ran away from home. It inspired us to further expand our endeavors and receive a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. As much as we appreciate all forms of mental health, we felt there was a better methodology that aligned with our inner truth when it came to helping clients achieve their relationship goals. Being growth-minded individuals, coaching seemed to sync on all levels for us due to its solution-focused style and goal-oriented approach.

When we started Entwined Lifestyle, we wanted to be able to have the flexibility and freedom to work from wherever while serving driven professionals globally around the world. Sitting in a chair between four white walls has never appealed to us, even though we strongly believe in having structure and a fundamental foundation of values to thrive from each and every day. However, the real joy of starting our business is knowing we get to work with unique clients and learn about their personal stories. The luxury of being able to help others is one of the most rewarding careers, especially when we get to see our clients achieve inner peace, greater happiness, and experience more personal fulfillment in their relationships.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are most proud of our relationships! Without our sisterly twinship and the relationships with our clients, our business wouldn’t be where it is today. Our company values confidentiality, communication, trust, and integrity to sustain exceptional service and an excellent reputation.

The success of clients’ goals is the ultimate factor in our business. We dedicate ourselves to our client’s needs to ensure commitment and consistency every step of the way. No two clients are alike and we customize our coaching to fit their personalities and goals. Our unique, interactive process allows our clients to authentically own who they are while simultaneously transforming their challenges for growth and success. We take pride in making sure every client walks out the door feeling like a badass.

When it comes to business, we know it can be easy to stay in our comfort zones. However, we know quite well the risk is usually worth the reward. One of the biggest risks and turning points for us in life was moving from a small rural town of 900 people to a huge city of 3 million. We didn’t know a single soul except each other and it became a big learning experience for us. It built our thick skin and determination for success overnight. It was in those moments, where we knew nothing was going to stand in our way. With sheer strength and resilience, we began our entrepreneurial journey.

For the past fifteen years, being entrepreneurs has inspired us to keep putting ourselves out there and not turn back. Of course, with any risk, setbacks happen from time to time. For us, these setbacks have always been a place for us to grow from and plant new seeds towards a better outcome. Turning yesterday’s pain into today’s power has been the fuel that keeps our light burning bright and is the key to our work’s purpose.

One of the biggest lessons we have learned over the years is setting healthy boundaries, both personally and professionally. Knowing how to speak up based on values versus emotions has been our catalyst to cultivating healthy relationships, maintaining professionalism, and implementing work-life balance. Boundaries are the lifeline to bridging the gap between differences and finding happiness in life. 

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If our best friend was in town visiting we would take her to Bistro 31 for brunch, grab dinner at Beverly’s or Monarch, and maybe hang out at the Thompson Hotel rooftop in the evening. We are also down for some southern BBQ or shopping around town. We like to mix things up with a variety of sightseeing, see a comedy show, and catch up like old times.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
We would like to recognize Kristie Jorfald, a wardrobe stylist. She helps women shop for their shape with a customizable tailored approach based on their unique personalities and upcoming events.
