The most valuable product you can sell is the story you already have.

Tell & sell your story with my Thought Leader Bundle.

Two life-changing online courses and community for women who want to make an impact through book writing and public speaking.

Your story could be someone Else's survival guide...

Hi, I’m Jess! I’m the founder of Headbands of Hope, author of Chasing the Brightside, and a professional public speaker.


Every day I meet so many amazing women with incredible stories – in fact, we all have stories and experiences that audiences can relate to, but most don’t know how or where to get started sharing them with the world while also making a living.


That’s why I created The Thought Leader Bundle. 

The world needs more diverse voices out there. I'm passionate about helping women monetize their story so they can make a living and make a difference at the same time.

If you’re ready to leave your mark by discovering your message and sharing it with the world, you’ve come to the right place!

Go from BOOK to BOOKED

The Thought Leader Bundle includes the 2 online courses you need to TELL and SELL your story.

Write your book and get it Published & Launch and grow your profitable speaking business

Craft the story you want to tell.

The exact steps you need to uncover the unique stories, knowledge, and experiences audiences will connect with.

Write + publish your book.

Go from book idea to proposal to literary agent to acquisition with a traditional publisher.

Get paid to speak.

Speaking is the perfect way to make both an impact and income - my first speaking gig was for a slice of pizza, but my SECOND gig was for much more than that! Find out what beginner speakers can make on just their first few speaking gigs!

Have you ever read a book or heard a speech that changed your life? could have that same impact on someone else.

When I purchased your course, I was hopeful it would work...

But I wasn’t 100% sure what I was signing up for or if it would really work. I actually had to sell my husband on it first before buying it.

This is what I know most definitely works...if you do the work. I’ve now got 10 speaking gigs booked!

Selina Krinock

I wish I had had this course available when I was writing my first book. Jess has created a practical course with easy-to-follow steps. She breaks down the writing process into manageable chunks, discusses finding a literary agent, and the pros and cons of traditional publishing versus self-publishing. She openly shares her first-hand knowledge and experience with writing non-fiction. I feel confident that anyone can follow in her footsteps and create my own story with wisdom to share with others.

Hey y’all, just want to put it out there that tonight I’m doing my first ***PAID*** speaking gig at Lenoir Rhyne University in North Carolina, and I owe a huge thanks to Mic Drop Workshop Mastery for so many things!

Throughout my life I have spoken FOR FREE countless times, but this is the first time that my gifts will be compensated properly, and I’m so proud.

Becoming an author and doing speaking gigs are the BEST way to create impact (and income!) from the knowledge and experiences you already have WITHOUT having to be an expert on anything.

The most valuable product you can sell is the story you already have

After I released my book… I got more speaking engagement requests, I could charge higher rates, I got more press and podcast requests, my social media audience grew, I got verified on my social channels, but most importantly…
I was able to tell my story in a way that helps people through their story. I want to help you do the same thing.
