Meet Your Coaches



John Elder

Hey, I’m John, and I’m addicted to baseball and business!

I got bit by the entrepreneurial bug when I started mowing lawns at the age of 12. Since then, My wife, Carrie, and I have owned numerous businesses, I have been Vice President of a company and I have coached business owners ranging from mom-and-pop operations to multi-hundred million dollar companies as a business coach with Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership All-Access program.

During my coaching tenure, I facilitated monthly mastermind calls, wrote and taught original business coaching sessions and hosted a daily, live call-in show where business owners were able to get in-the-moment business advice on the issues they were facing day in and day out.

I’m excited for you to join us in Next Level Coaching! I’m passionate about helping the business operator truly become a business owner. I know as an entrepreneur you didn’t start your business to simply operate it, you want to own it. I can’t wait to bring my in-the-trenches experience to your business and help you take it to the Next Level!

Carrie Elder

Hi friends. I’m Carrie... a wife, business owner, and #boymom of 3 loud, energetic boys! I’m obsessed with hiking, my dog Leo and dark coffee.

My work career began in the music industry at Capital Music in the Christian division. Although that time in my life taught me a ton about the “real world” of business, I soon realized that I was built to help people grow their business. And, ever since, I have been committed to helping people in their journey of starting and running their personal businesses. I have worked with several authors and speakers as well as the leaders and reps in my direct sales company.

In addition to helping others start their businesses, my husband John and I also owned an exercise therapy clinic in our town of Franklin, TN for 10 years.

I enjoy learning who God made me to BE on this earth. And in all facets of my life, I believe I am created to be an encouraging, strategic, supportive leader to those around me. I expand vision and develop plans and systems for people non-stop in my head. And it brings me great joy to be able to deliver those to my clients so they feel more confident, hopeful and stress-free in their entrepreneurial journey.

Here's what ZYIA Active leader has to say about working with Next Level.

"When things have been tough, I’m so thankful I had a business coach who brought me back to square one, taught me about mission, vision, prioritizing, mindset, and communication. These simple yet STRONG business practices have led me to a top rank in my company and I’m proud of what I’m building."

"Wow, doing this next level coaching is bringing about some interesting thoughts…my principle always told me I was born to lead and I never really believed her, but I really feel like that is kind of what I was born to do - now I want to build a team even more!"
