“I must say that the Jessicas's Speaker Circle was one of the best things I've ever done for my business!!!  I've been in business  since 2008, and truly, nothing has shaped my business like working with Jessica.  The content was amazing and the support throughout our implementation was top notch.  Jessica created an environment for community, collaboration, and ideation.  Our cohort members ran with her ideas, cheered one another on, and ultimately had a once in a lifetime experience for our in-person deep dive weekend.  The relationships that grew out of our time together are irreplaceable and like no other.  We are all finding ways to collaborate in our businesses, we send each other ideas, and we are a sounding board for future projects.  In our creative business world, that is hard to come by.  With Jessica's knowledge and leadership, we are all on a path for huge growth, both personally and professionally.” - Corry Frazier, Corry Frazier Photography


“I have felt such a shift that has happened with me and such a change that has happened in me. … what Jessica provided was truly unforgettable. I could not be more grateful for this wonderful woman and the group of women that I got to work with. …

Speaking is something that I had wanted to add to my business for so long, it’s something that has been on my heart for years, but I didn’t really have the confidence in myself. I felt like an imposter, I felt like a fraud.

But being apart of the Speaker Circle was one of the most incredible experiences because she teaches you what to do, she teaches you the ‘how’ … but what happened for me is she grew my confidence. I was more confident in the fact that this is what I’m meant to do. She helped lift me up and raise me up in such a way that I felt like I could do this. …

She helped me embrace this thing that was already in myself and to speak it out loud with confidence. … I feel really confident about who I am, how I show up in the world, and what it is I need to talk about. I cannot even tell you how grateful I am. …

I hope that if you are sitting on the fence wondering if you should join the Speaker Circle or not, that you just do it. … If you have it in your heart that you want to speak, that you want to add this to your business, then don’t even hesitate, just say YES!”

"Finding Jess and being a part of her Speaking Circle Mastermind, was a huge and significant pivot for me and for my business.  I knew that the next step in my editing business would be to start speaking to photographers all about outsourcing their editing, however, I had no clue how to go about doing this the right way.  I had such an important message to share and I knew it would help so many other photographers, but delivering that message takes skill and I needed Jess's help.  I needed someone who would help mentor me and guide me to craft my signature talks and teach me the ins and outs of pitching to the right conferences and podcasts. 

Thanks to Jess and her Mastermind I now have my signature talk, have been working on other signature talks, and have been able to pitch with confidence to large conferences.  Since completing the mastermind, I am now speaking at several workshops, podcasts, and large conferences and I couldn't have done this without her!  I am also so grateful for her careful curation of women that were in our mastermind group.  We all bonded quickly and are still cheering each other on even after our mastermind is over.  I feel like I left the group with a new band of sisterhood, which is priceless!  This was one of the best business decisions I've made!"  ~Janelle Joy, Janelle Joy 

 

This is an intimate experience with limited seats.

It’s important to me that you feel confident in sharing about your business and masterminding with our group. For that reason, enrollment is via application only. This allows us to curate the perfect mix of entrepreneurs without fear of overlapping content or direct competition.

>> Let me say that again: THIS GROUP IS HAND CURATED <<


Maintaining the integrity of every presentation I take part in crafting is incredibly important to me. I never want to question where a piece of content (or bullet point in a presentation) came from. To ensure everyone in the group program feels confident in sharing their presentation without hesitation, I hand select each participant to guarantee there is no overlap of business types and/or speaking topics.

What does this mean for you?

If you’re a copywriter who is selected to be a member of the program, you will be the ONLY copywriter in the program. This also means that as soon as a seat is filled for a particular topic, we no longer accept applications on that subject matter. If you’re considering joining the program, I can’t urge you enough to submit your application today to save your save on your subject matter.

You have an important message to share with the world and I’m going to help you maximize the impact of your message.

FAQ:

Is this best for a product or service-based business?

This program has been designed for service based businesses and/or content creators who want to leverage speaking as a marketing powerhouse for their business. If you want to get in front of potential clients/students, serve them from the stage, and move them back into your business - This. Is. For. You.

Our last round included: An Attorney, Photographer, Copywriter, Private Editor, Market Researcher, and a Business Coach

Is this a course or a coaching program?

This is an education-based group coaching program that feels more like a mastermind-group coaching hybrid. What does that mean? I’ll be teaching you the content (live) so there’s no self-paced modules to go through. But don’t you worry, all calls will be recorded in case you can’t make one. Additionally, you’ll be given homework so you can implement it into your business and I’ll be there to coach you through the process and make sure it fits with your unique business model.

I’m going to teach you, help you implement it, hold you accountable, and coach you through the blocks. The best part? You’ll have a community to support you through the entire process and link arms with you on the journey. You’ve got a coach AND a community in your corner.

Is the workshop included in my investment or is it an add-on?

Yesssssss! Your entire coaching program, call recordings, swipe files, project boards, and templates are included. Additionally, you’ll receive complimentary admission to an intimate in-person workshop experience in sunny Florida. The workshop will include materials, educational sessions, presentation delivery & real-time feedback, photos, daily breakfast, lunch, and happy hour mastermind sessions.

To make booking your travel arrangements as easy as possible, we’ve reserved a hotel block at our waterfront venue in Apollo Beach, Florida. You’ll be able to book your room with our special discount rate and/or split lodging with a fellow circle member.
