Another Kind of V-Day

We all enter the world the same---vulnerable and clueless. From day 1, we rely on our communities to school us in who we are in relation to others, what to (not) believe, and how to go about life. At some point, we may question one or more of these stories, and that's when the magic begins. the courage to question  How…

Drop the Mask & Be Who You Are

That title is easy to write but can be incredibly difficult to do. From a young age, we are encouraged to wear a variety of masks and labels so much so that the #1 regret of the dying is: "I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me." And…

How to Manifest & Create Your Dreams!

People often ask me, "Jackie, how is that you're able to do all these things: run your own business, travel across Europe for 3 weeks solo, live in China for 3 years, work for the Olympics, move to San Francisco without a job and a little over a $1,000 during a recession and get your dream job 5 weeks later?"…

Intentional Courage by Bill Treasurer

You are a courageous person. I know that because I know that you have done courageous things in your life already. You were courageous the day your parents dropped you off at summer camp for your first time. You were courageous as a budding thespian in your high school play when the curtain went up and you were staring at…

Lessons in Rejection

Rejection Therapy has been a roller coaster, and I'm absolutely loving it (well, mostly). In my 2 weeks of rejection, I've been told "no" and "yes" countless times. As I mentioned in my first post, Rejection Therapy: Week One, I'm using Rejection Therapy as a catapult for pursuing my longstanding dreams. It's also served as daily in-the-moment motivation to ask for…

Rejection Therapy: Week 1

When I was 23, I believed I could do anything. I moved to middle-of-nowhere China right after college, and all seemed possible.
