Hi, I’m Jess! I’m the founder of Headbands of Hope, author of Chasing the Bright Side, 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’m hosting this LIVE webinar, August 25th at 7pm to help you make an impact AND an income through book writing and public speaking.

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