Julie Wadley

Julie Wadley is a certified life and relationship coach and the owner Eli Simone, LLC, a boutique matchmaking and coaching firm for Bold, Brilliant, Beautiful, Black Women. Trained at both the Matchmaking Institute and Relationship Coaching Institute, Julie has learned that the ability to love and be loved is one of the strongest forces of nature, yet one of most overlooked and underrated life goals.

Infusing her no-nonsense, cut to the chase personality, she challenges women (and men) to get back to basics on building a fulfilling life. Her mission is to empower those to find and keep love by assessing individual goals and customizing strategies to achieve them. Her goal is to bring out the best in people so they can bring out the best in others.

Julie has been a featured relationship expert on NBC, CBS, The CW, Time Magazine, Chicago Tribune, Vice magazine, and MadameNoire online magazine. Her workshops, eCourses, and programs offer a multitude of practical techniques to “Bring Love to Life.” Her podcast While We Wait, on Soundcloud and www.whilewewaitpodcast.com, is dedicated to helping women turn their dreams into goals "in the meantime".
