Jessica McClure will surprise you. When you first visit her website, you may think she is an all business-minded, career-focused, driven person. It's probably the blazer.
She IS that, but she also has an uncanny ability to guide you in your most authentic way possible. Where you are right in this moment (maybe tired, dazed, confused, frustrated) - and where you are meant to be in your future. It's weirdly intense stuff.
To be honest, I have never been a major player in the "positive thinking magic" game. I was always very skeptical, as I had tried in my youth and it didn't work out the way I wanted. Frankly, bitterness is my middle name and I know it will take a long time to shake off.
Jessica taught me to not just "think" positive, but actually show up. Put in the work. Go to places I'm supposed to go to and interact with people I want to interact with. It became less "Woe is me" and more, "What shall I do next?"
I had the pleasure of working with Jessica for only three months, and within three months I was able to gain a profound amount of skills not only in combating my negativity, but really diving in to a life I was always on the sidelines with before.
BY THE WAY, I hate recommendations without proof, so here it goes. In three months I was able to:
Go to art-related events and become more involved with the arts community (I have lived in Seattle ten years and was too shy and pained to even consider this)
Start a writers club filled with like-minded women
Meet a really awesome new friend (It's super hard making REAL friends)
Have one of my essays go viral literally the night after I announced in my personal journal that I'm a writer (13,000 views and counting!)
Get some really interesting writing jobs relevant to my interests
Listen to my gut (a forever work in progress)
Move to a new apartment, under budget, by a specific date (This one was spooky!)
Do a PUBLIC SPEAKING EVENT (one of my ultimate fears)
This really isn't "froo-froo" stuff. This work is meaningful and impactful.
It's important to note that it's not EASY to work with Jessica. She asks really poignant, sometimes soul-wrenching questions. She expects you to follow through with things. But she is present and honest, and if you're willing to dive in deep, she's willing to stand in your corner, rooting for you.
There aren't many people I can think of off hand that are meant for the work that they do. Jessica found her calling. She knows what she's doing, probably long before she announced herself as a "life coach".
Long story short: If you're in a transitional funk this may be the shock to your system you need to see outside of yourself. We are so much more than we give ourselves credit for. Finding someone with the gift to see that in you (and not in a cheesy way, like with actual evidence), is really powerful. I recommend Jessica McClure for all of your life-changing needs, hands down.
