i'm willing to bet YOU'VE BEEN WONDERING:
How to share your story with your audience without over-sharing all those personal details
How to add speaking to your existing business without trying to juggle #allthethings
How to transition from speaking for free to booked and paid
I get it, you want to be the go-to expert in your industry.
You have a wish list of podcasts that you want to appear on and conferences you want to speak at. I don’t blame you. Speaking is the fastest way to grow your platform and increase your influence.
But when you start researching HOW to get started, all you find are vague suggestions and empty promises. Why is everyone so hush-hush about their speaking strategy when there are more than enough opportunities for all of us?!
You know you can’t navigate these waters alone but you have no idea where to start. You don’t have the time (or patience) to navigate an endless google search or the black hole that is pinterest. What you really need is a trusted support system… a mentor who has been there, done that, and is ready to help you shorten the learning curve. Someone who is just as invested in your success as they are their own….
Well guess what, friend… you. just. found. her.
Hey girl, heyyy! I’m Jessica, your secret weapon to achieving the speaking success you desire. As a professional speaker and coach for female entrepreneurs, I’m dedicated to helping you turn your mess into a message and your passion into profit.
We want to share our message with the world… but if it isn’t serving others or benefiting our bottom line, why are we doing it? You can do great work in the world and still provide the life your family deserves.
If you want your work to reach the people you created it for, you need to have a clear plan of attack. Yes, even good deeds need a strategy.
Trust me, I know.
I’ve spent the last ten years traveling the country sharing my story of turning my mess into a message and have been featured on major media outlets such as ABC 20/20, Katie Couric, MTV, The Today Show and many more.
But none of this was never in my plans.
I was just a college freshman with a business scholarship. I thought I had the whole world ahead of me. That was until I threw away the life I knew in a matter of minutes. I made a decision that claimed the life of my best friend, nearly ended my own, and shattered the lives of more people than can ever be measured. I drank, drove and killed my best friend.
There was nothing that could change what happened. Nothing was going to bring her back and I am the only one to blame for that. The only thing I COULD do (and what I knew I had to do) was prevent others from repeating my mistake.
I set out on a mission to share my message and raise awareness across the country. Over 15,000 young adults were impacted by that message before I was sentenced to prison.
Speaking to the masses was never in my plans.
But if there is one thing I learned from this journey it’s: Your message matters. Someone is waiting to hear it right now. They need you to be their ray of hope.
I know you have a message that the world needs to hear. My question to you is: Are you ready to ditch your comfort zone, roll up your sleeves and put in the work to serve your people from the stage?
If your answer was “Hell yeah, I am!” I’m going to show you exactly how to own your story, rock the stage and impact the masses.
Hold on tight, friend. You’re about to embark on that journey you’ve been dreaming about for years.
you should probably know that:
Yes, I have purple hair.
I’m thoroughly obsessed with go-getter women who aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves to make their dreams a reality.
I live in sunny Florida with my fiance and our four year old daughter Chloe.
We're expecting the arrival of our baby boy in June of 2018 and we can't wait!
I drink more coffee than I’ll admit to (note the statement about the small human).
I’m obsessed with coffee mugs, colorful markers and fresh flowers.
Our team here at JRHQ is the.best.ever. and I couldn’t do any of this without them.
I love cooking but am just as happy ordering a pizza.
FYI - GF Pizza is absolutely a food group.
- Painting is my outlet, although it should probably be working out instead (note the statement about pizza).
