That first client is not as elusive as you think.
Every day, you must market your business.
You have gifts to share with the world! We need you to be open for business.
Hand in hand, I believe you need the right success mindset to accomplish your goals. I can teach the best marketing and business growth strategies, but if you’re not confident and bold enough to implement them, they won’t work for you.
Finally, as a spiritual person, I believe our marketing should reflect our souls. In addition to teaching authentic marketing principles, I also focus on weaving spiritual practices, such as the Law of Attraction, into your marketing. When you’re a purpose-driven entrepreneur, this can make all the difference in how you feel about marketing!

- I believe we should all be amazingly compensated for our Divine Gifts. Money is energy!
- I love you. Even though we may not have met, I am beaming love to you right now. That’s how I roll.
As seen in:
Together, Loud Woman, we must leave our comfort zones of good-girl manners, perfection, and fear.
It’s time to embrace this truth: You deserve to live a fulfilled life…
Not one prescribed by society but one beautifully designed by you…
Loud Woman, look around. All across the globe, people are depressed, or poor, or unfulfilled. Our planet bears the weight of our collective selfishness. Many leaders are corrupt, and we are plagued with a mindset that there’s not enough of everything to go around.
Now look at you. You probably are not living your Loudest life. Burdened by societal expectations for women to be small and Quiet, you have been taught to put your needs last, to always show good manners, and to see other women as competition instead of allies.
That’s how Jill was too—overly accommodating, giving, polite, and selfless. But as she watched Dr. Christine Blasey Ford bravely tell her story and testify about Brett Kavanaugh’s attempted rape, Jill thought, this is what a Loud Woman looks like. Speaking up and telling the truth—and doing so without apology or explanation. Inspired by Dr. Ford’s act of honest courage, Jill realized, right then and there, that it was time for her to get Louder too.
Loud Woman is part memoir, part self-help, all manifesto, confession, and plea. It’s Jill’s love letter to you, Loud Woman, so you can be inspired by her journey and embark on your own. Inside these pages you will find a guidebook on how to live a Louder life—from how to push through your fears to trusting yourself more. It’s Jill’s hope that, after reading Loud Woman, you too will look in the mirror and proclaim, “This is what a Loud Woman looks like.”
