POSITION IT TO SELL

Hi,
I’m Jess!





I started my multi-million-dollar company, Headbands of Hope, while I was in college eating Ramen Noodles and using my sister’s Netflix password

Clearly you don’t have to be an expert to get started. Now a little about me 👇

AS HEADBANDS OF HOPE STARTED TO GROW, SO DID MY STORY…

For a long time, I thought my success was how far I could reach. How many books could I write? How many businesses could I start? How many stages could I speak on?

But now, I’ve realized my success isn’t about
how far I can reach – but how far I can help
other women reach.

Specifically, how can I help women uncover the value in their story so they can sell it through speaking & writing.

So here’s my

North star.

EVERYTHING I CREATE IS TO HELP YOU TELL AND SELL YOUR STORY…

so you can make a living and make a difference at the same time

Let me be straight with you – I’m not that perfectly filtered influencer on the internet that promises you the world and doesn’t follow through after that credit card is swiped. My mission is to guarantee you two things 👇

Enough about my story, let’s discover the purpose of

your story

Take my THOUGHT LEADER QUIZ to help you discover the best way to monetize your story.

LIFE DOESN’T HAVE TO BE A TUG OF WAR BETWEEN LIVING YOUR PASSION AND MAKING A PROFIT.

What if you could make a living and make a difference at the same time…just by telling your story?
Your story has value to serve others…but where do you even begin telling it?
Selling it as a keynote or a book?
Don’t you have to be an “expert” to do that?
How do you package it?
Don’t worry-I got you. 👇
