Hey, I’m J.

I grew up in a home where I believed money was always scarce, where I felt I had to be perfect to be accepted, and where I felt I had to pursue the traditional lifestyle (college, get a job, get married, have kids) in order to be successful. After years of doing what was considered the “normal” path of life, I realized I was unhappy with where my life was heading, and I thought there surely had to be more to life than what I was experiencing. I needed to have a job that made me feel more complete, andĀ oneĀ that would still allow me to be a loving wife and mother. I needed to be able to help others discover their potential and overcome barriers to achieving their goals, but in an unconventional manner.

Initially, all I could see were reasons why I couldn’t do this: 1) I needed to keep a secure job with benefits because I am responsible for caring for my three daughters. 2) I didn’t have the income to support me starting a business venture. Over time, I became jealous of those I saw that lived a life without barriers, and wondered why I couldn’t do the same. Then, it hit me one day: If other caregivers could find a meaningful, unconventional job that made them happy and allowed them the freedom to be there for their family, then so could I! All I needed to do was change my mindset and break through the limiting beliefs that dictated my life. It was then that I truly adopted an “I can do all things through Christ” mentality.

As a result of my mindset shift, I went on to write my first book,Ā 11 Ways to JumpStart Your Thinking, and I started a new, more focused blog to provide actionable tips to creatives who need help shifting their mindset, too. Now, my life feels more aligned with what I was meant to do:Ā help others shift their mindset to make and achieve purpose-driven goals. I want to empower other creative women to break the cycle of working merely for a paycheck with little to no time for their family, and instead use their gifts to create a life of freedom–the freedom to care for their family while engaging in meaningful work that aligns with their purpose.

I’m inviting you to take a second to join my newsletter. Why? Because I know you’re just like I was: ready for a change. You’re ready to take back your life and create the life you’ve always wanted. So go ahead.Ā Join my newsletterĀ so you can receive weekly actionable tips for success (and aĀ complimentary sheet to help you discover your purpose!).

Joyfully,

J.
