Hi !

I'm Chekesha Tha Bosslady

My name is Chekesha Nellrose Crippen and I am the owner of How to Life On Purpose and Transform Through Difficult Times Coaching Services. This year, I took a leap on faith and opened my own coaching practice after the tragic murder of my first born daughter.

About Me

A little bit about me:

I grew up an only child to my mother in Boston Ma. Growing up I frequently visited and lived in Knoxville TN with my grandparents which is not unusual for me to have chosen this as my home. I spent many years during my childhood growing up in Knoxville I attended some elementary, most of my middle school life, my freshman and sophomore years in High School attending Austin East High School. All my childhood memories are mostly of growing up around my cousins known today as my brothers and sister, making them all aunts and uncles to my kids. After graduating, in Massachusetts from Medford High School in Medford MA. In 1991, I headed back to my love of the much slower paced south.

I continued my educational journey in Tennessee at Knoxville College majoring in political science and business management later leaving after becoming ill. I eventually returned school at Tennessee Technology Center where I majored in Medical Billing and Coding. Ultimately graduating TTCK as a Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist.

Getting Married at the age of 21 to help raise my 2 oldest girls then onto having my 1st born child a girl at the age of 22. Now today a husband or two and many many many children and bonus children later here I am CheKesha-THA Bosslady. Currently, I live in Knoxville, TN with my children and family. When I’m not keeping busy with helping the underprivileged people in job searching or creation, housing sustainability or entering into the music spotlight you can find me being the lifelong student that I am studying and mastering my life on purpose or somewhere on a computer and researching how to evolve and grow love for myself crushing one by one all of my limited beliefs and trying new things fulfilling my life on purpose.

The purpose of this website is to bring us to a deeper understanding and assist us in the development of ourselves. To teach us to become confident in ourselves and our life on purpose, and how feeling good adds to looking good from the inside out.

I specialize in helping each individual I serve to reach their goals, and ultimately, their highest potential. I truly cannot imagine doing any other kind of work and I enjoy supporting my clients in their change efforts.

In my packages, the only agenda I have is to help you get unstuck, resolve a problem, or take the next big leap you’ve been thinking about taking but have been too afraid to do on your own. Every person is different and I pull from different evidenced-based techniques in my work.

You’ll have the opportunity to chat with me for a free 15-minute phone consultation to make sure we’re a good fit before making a commitment

My Mission

"My Mission is to help you discover your purpose on life, where you want to go your (Vision), why you are here your (purpose), how(mission) and (values) what’s important"

Your life purpose consists of the central motivating aims of your life—the reasons you get up in the morning. Purpose can guide life decisions, influence behavior, shape goals, offer a sense of direction, and create meaning. For some people, purpose is connected to vocation—meaningful, satisfying work.
