Jillian Bullock

Jillian’s Mission Statement

“To empower people to be Victors, not Victims by giving them the tools, advice, guidance, tips, and knowledge to “fix” their lives and achieve happiness, success and greatness."


It seems nearly impossible that someone could go from living a life of drug addiction, crime, high school dropout, prostitution, homelessness, and teenage motherhood to a published author, fitness expert, award winning filmmaker, life coach, and professional speaker. As Jillian held on to what she calls her “fighting spirit,” she slowly took the steps necessary to transform her life from a Victim to a Victor.

Jillian Bullock, aka “The Legitimate Fixer of Transformational Development”© is a renowned and highly sought-after professional speaker, life coach, author, and fitness, health and wellness expert. Jillian became a speaker and certified life coach after her memoir, HERE I STAND was published in 2012 and she started getting letters and emails from people all across the country, including people in correctional institutions. They all asked her the two same questions: How she turned her life around? Can she help them?

Jillian is the CEO of Jillian Bullock Enterprises, LLC, an empowerment and entertainment production company based in Pennsylvania. She uses written material, (books, articles and screenplays), visual methods, (film, video), spoken word, (speeches, lectures, seminars), and fitness and wellness workshops to produce positive, entertaining and empowering material for people. Jillian has shared her unimaginable, but inspirational life story with hundreds of thousands of people through TV, radio and print appearances, and speaking engagements.

“Practically anyone can transcend suffering, overcome horrible conditions, deprogram destructive habits and remove self from negative circumstances and abusive people if they are truly determined to change in order to make their life better, happier, safer, and more fulfilling.” – Jillian Bullock

When it comes to helping people transform and “fix” their lives, Jillian deeply and fully understands their dilemma, pain, frustration, disappointment, sadness, and anger, all of which holds people back from fulfilling their dreams and goals in life. Jillian sees the picture from all sides; not only because of her education and training, but because she has been there. She knows firsthand what it takes to turn one’s life around.

Jillian’s empowerment and transformational programs are designed to push audiences and clients to take them out of their comfort level and get amazing results, far beyond their expectations. They will change and improve their mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-beginning. But to have this amazing personal and professional life it does take discipline, focus, faith, sacrifice, and a fighting spirit.

"Recently, I had the privilege of attending The Dress for Success luncheon held in Pittsburgh PA. I found Jillian Bullock to be quite an inspiration to all women. Jillian is a true hero and a fighter. She is the role model I think that we all aspire to be. A woman who had to fight, day after day, year after year, to achieve the goals she wanted to obtain. I plan to have her conduct a workshop or speech at my organization next year." - Danielle D. McBurney, Senior Member Service Representative Highmark Help on Hand
