I met Jessica McClure at the perfect time in my life. I was unhappy, "stuck", seeking a more fulfilling, purposeful life and career. What caught my attention about Jess is during a women's networking event, she spoke confidently about not wanting to "lean in," but instead LEAN OUT. It sparked my curiosity and after the event, I introduced myself. In our casual conversation, she asked me some questions and I started crying. She dug deeper and held space and asked more questions. The next time we met was in the beginning stage of the Lean Out workshop. Jess was clear on the vision for the group and also open to exploring what this could be. In February, Jess led our first event and was very intentional about being authentic. From the start, I felt free to express myself and be me even through tears. Over the course of this last year, this Lean Out group has been an incredible source of support, inspiration, learning and my own personal evolution. It's helped me grow in my confidence and belief to go after my entrepreneurial dreams which started as a side hustle and now is my full time passion. I feel more alive and creative than ever before through living my purpose and having the support from Lean Out to unapologetically go after my dreams. Jess has a gift for connection and connecting people and uncovering our deepest desires to live more full in the life we want to live.

Jess is an intuitive coach and a friend who helped me grow in ways that I would not have been able to if I had continued my work in a corporate setting, doing the same mundane things everyday. Through her amazing Lean Out workshop, a support group for women she started in 2017, I discovered the missing elements to achieve my personal goals and success, and which had been ultimately finding my own voice. Jess asks lots of questions that appear basic but it really taps into bringing out the answers already within you. Jess possesses strong leadership qualities and speaks honestly. I really admire that she has deep passion for her work, and a great compassion for people. She is able to connect with you on a personal level, regardless where you are in life; She truly believes in people finding their purpose in life.
For the last year, Jessica has led and helped facilitate the Lean Out women’s group with deep generosity, compassion, courage, and kindness. I would not have been brave enough to see my own vision if it weren’t for the courageous women I have collaborated with in the past year. Every single member of the group was encouraged to lead their own workshop with such love and heart. Throughout, the creative process for each member of the group, Jessica was always fully present in supporting and embracing our vulnerability. Lean Out workshops has been a solid endless support! I truly recommend Lean Out retreat for women to discover their true nature." Thank you, Jess for bringing so much light in our lives and leading this group in creating our vision, passion and with so much heart. I wouldn't have truly been confident to pursue my work, if it weren't for Lean Out.

I loved being part of Jess' Lean Out group. Jess is a wonderful coach who did a great job leading and facilitating our group. The women in the group were wonderful, and supportive. I found I could show up as myself, share authentically what's been going on in my life, and not be judged. The group also served as an incredible resource. It was because of Lean Out that I met my boyfriend, and felt I had a support system when I left my job. In fact, many of us were going through similar life events. Jess attracts amazing women, and I recommend her Lean Out workshop to any woman who is ready to transform her life.
