Follow Your Heart to Find Your Passion

quote markJessica’s book ‘Finding Passion – A self-discovery approach for navigating career crossroads’ is an exceptional testament to her life experiences, instinctive knowledge, and willingness to be vulnerable in order to help people find their passion. Her book is easy to follow, hands-on, and asks heart-focused questions that are thought provoking and truly speaks to your inner being. Self-discovery is essential to finding your own passion and Jessica’s book gently guides you along the way.

Jessica’s online Skype life coaching sessions at Managing Mindspaces has been incredibly mind-blowing and invaluable to my career and life. Her coaching style is warm, direct, and effective. Jessica’s intuitive gifts matched with her practical knowledge has helped me realize which fears were holding me back from my business. I was afraid of rejection and through her gentle guidance, observations, and curiosities, she helped me unlock one of my biggest fears – the fear of my own power. Furthermore, she gave me challenges and guided me to find ways within myself to work with my fears.

If you’re looking for someone who will help you focus and clear your mind about your core beliefs, values, and fears then she is someone who will not only listen but also ask mind-shifting questions which will alter your perspective and bring to awareness who you really want to be. She has helped me in so many ways and I am forever thankful. Now I feel confidant in knowing that what I have to offer to the world (teaching piano to children) is valuable because doing what I love is integral to my whole being and to the world. I know I make a difference in the lives of many children and so too will Jessica make a difference in your life. It’s never too late to discover more about yourself and your passions!

I highly recommend Jessica’s book and coaching sessions to anyone who is ready for a change – that is to follow their heart and to find their passion. Go for it! If you are reading this, then you're ready. "

Finding the Strength to Make Difficult Changes

quote markWorking with Jessica has truly been a life-changing experience. Through our conversations and exercises, I came to understand why I had become so dissatisfied with a job I had once enjoyed.

Decreased Stress, Moving Forward with Career Changes

quote markThrough my coaching experience with Jessica I was able to focus my personal vision, articulate my strengths and discover support for my vision. I am usually so wrapped up in the daily challenges of my career that I often don't take the time to reflect on the areas that are causing me stress.. As I result, I don't take the time to make decisions around what I would like to change and develop a strategy to tackle these areas. My coaching experience with Jessica helped me to focus on issues that were important to me. She helped to stimulate my thinking, look to my sources of strength, find positive solutions and push me to take action. As a result of my coaching sessions, I now have taken steps to decrease the stress load in my day to day work as well as moved toward larger changes in my career that I hope will some day result in my dream job!

Jessica was a perfect match for me. Although all of our sessions occurred over the phone, I could feel her warmth and sense her smiling on the other end of the line. She listened to the stories around the issues, helped me to clarify what needed to be done and made sure that I had concrete steps to act on by the end of each session.
