Have you ever felt like...

Maybe that feeling has always been there… or maybe it’s something you’ve only recently discovered. And no, I’m not talking about the urge to dip your pizza in ranch dressing (if you haven’t tried this yet, you’re welcome)...I’m talking about that unmistakable urge to help others through your story that only you can share. You know deep down that you can make the world a better place by finding and amplifying your message.

But life gets in the way…

And you’re back to the same old, same old. You tell yourself that there are a million different reasons why you shouldn’t water this idea and you can recite them easier than you recite your Starbucks latte order.

What if this time it’s different?

You’re ready to take the first step on your path to embracing your full potential to make your mark on the world through sharing your story.
Then the questions and self-doubt bubble up and cloud your determination… How do I find my message? What if nobody cares? How do I share it with the world? Can I actually make a living doing this? And… ugh.

Before you rip out this page of your planner and crumble it up, let me level with you.

Hi, I’m Jess!

I started Mic Drop Workshop with one mission: to give you the tools, training, community, and support you need to launch the speaking business and lifestyle of your dreams.

As my speaking career has developed, I’m continuously the token woman in lineups and rarely see an even representation of women voices on stage. It’s time to change that.

You’re the *perfect* fit
for Mic Drop if...

Jess’ 30 Day Money Back Guarantee

Follow my methods in this course and if you’re not satisfied with your results, submit proof of work within 30 days for a 100% refund. You must put in the work first – I want you to succeed and I will hold you accountable!


You get instant access as soon as you sign up and can complete it on your own time and at your own pace!

There are ten modules that include presentation, audio, video, downloadable worksheets, quizzes and more. Oh – and there’s also a bonus module with extra goodies I put in there!

With that said, the timing of the course will depend on if you want to work through the modules as you’re taking them, or just run through the course and then go back and take action on the modules. Honestly, I think it’s better to take at least a month or two to go through it so your mind can marinate in the lesson details.

It’s also a good idea to pull additional input from the other women in the private #SpeakerSister group after at each module. The amount of feedback, support, and extra information in the group from women who are at different stages in the course and different levels of public speaking is incredible.

You’re definitely going to want to re-watch different lessons multiple times as you progress through your speaking career as well!

The Mic Drop Workshop Mastery Course is available online and on-demand for you to watch and rewatch anytime. The lessons are recorded so you can view them as much as you’d like – this way there’s no pressure to try and consume everything all at once.

You can pause lessons to take notes or to complete the quizzes and associated “homework” as well as jump back to previous lessons if you need to review material that you’ve already watched.

The course gives you all of the tools and information Jess feels is needed to start getting paid to speak (or to increase your fees if you’re already being paid to speak), but you have to put them into action. Between the course and the #SpeakerSister group I’m confident that you’re saving thousands of dollars that you’d spend on a personal speaking coach (and you’ll get way more value from the course and group than a single coach could provide).

Consider this course all of the ingredients you need, but you’re still the chef and have to cook it! Membership in the mastery course and private group is a two way street. There’s no way for me to guarantee I’ll have the exact path to your individual success in speaking, but I will say that the course and private group can get you very close!

We go all the way from crafting your presentation to getting booked. I talk about multiple outlets for determining where and how to pitch your speaking services in the most successful way possible, but depending on the niche the heavy lifting will be on you to dig in and make it happen.

There are a lot of people looking for a magic success lever to pull for instant results so I want it to be clear that while the tools, resources and community are all there, it’s no substitute for hard work and passion on your end.

Hopefully I didn’t scare you away 😉 I’m just not a ‘salesy’ person and I just want to be completely honest and transparent to make sure the course is the right fit for you!

I talk about multiple outlets for determining where and how to pitch your speaking services in the most successful way possible, but the heavy lifting will be on you to dig in and make it happen. You can certainly reach out to the private #SpeakerSister group on Facebook for guidance and input from the other members – I do post opportunities for gigs like calls for TEDx talks and conferences and also offer personal feedback, but there are a lot of other amazing women in the group that can offer input as good as me (if not better) based on each person’s unique situation.

There’s a section on personal branding and getting booked as well (including email templates to fire off to events which is how I’ve booked some of my biggest gigs). I also have recorded bonus sessions where I sit down for a Q & A with my booking agent as well as someone who books speakers for conferences to give insight into the best way for you to reach out and put your best foot forward for booking gigs on your own.

I am no longer offering the Mic Drop Workshop Mastery Course live and in person – it’s only available as an online course.

I’m solely offering the course online because theres just so much information to cover. By housing the course and community online you’re able to watch and work at your own pace. You can pause and re-watch lessons without the fear of missing out on important content as well.

Post them in the private #SpeakerSister group!

The course will cover everything from debunking your limiting beliefs about speaking, crafting your keynote, speaking techniques, branding yourself, pricing yourself, negotiating, finding gigs and keeping your calendar full. Along with my personal lessons and stories, there will be one on one interviews with a conference director who books speakers and shares the do’s and don’ts, an interview with my booking manager on how she negotiates and closes deals, and an interview with my accountant on how to best manage your speaking business financially.

The course also included access to my community component called the #SpeakerSister private group. It’s here you’ll find your #SpeakerSister and give and receive support, feedback, and referrals to and from other women in the group.

The only requirement to start speaking publicly is to be yourself!! A common misconception is that you need to be successful in order to start speaking, but it simply isn’t true. You also don’t have to be an expert on anything to inspire and encourage audiences from the stage.

We have college students and women from all walks of life that are booking their first gigs and seeing success from the mastery course.

We have stay-at-home moms and women with 9 to 5 jobs that are going through the course in their spare time with the goal to make speaking their “side hustle.”

We also have professional speakers, entrepreneurs, authors, community leaders, activists, but don’t let someone else’s definition of success hold you back from taking your next step.

The beauty of the course and group is that you can go as fast or as slow as you want while defining your own goals for speaking and your own definition of success!

You got this!! 😉

Once you’re in the group you’re encouraged to post about yourself and what you’re looking for in a #SpeakerSister. It’s up to you to connect with the other members to find your fit! So many great pairings have already happened and it’s a really cool experience.

There is a section on crafting your talk, but I leave it up to you to pick the topic that suits you best and that you’re most comfortable with. Every speaker is different and has different goals with the impact they want to have, so I’ll give you framework and ideas in the course itself and then you will create your presentation from there.

You can certainly reach out to the private #SpeakerSister group on Facebook for guidance and input from the other members about your keynote and messaging!

A computer!  (Comfy stretchy pants and glass of wine optional but recommended)

Of course!! Check out the testimonial page here – https://go.micdropworkshop.com/testimonials

My day one was a gig for a slice of pizza. Yours could be a lot further along than that by taking the course and having access to the private #SpeakerSister group.

You decide!

It's time to drop the Mic!
