Today’s Fabulous Friday Female is the lovely Jessica Libbey…because this week she has touched my life in a very special way.
Jessica believes that in order to show up and truly shine in your business and your life, you must be willing to embrace ALL parts of you. That is what enables you to show up authentically as the beautiful, whole and complete being you truly are, inside and out.
She passionately supports women to go from hiding in the shadows to really showing up and shining in their full truth and wholeness, by embracing all parts of themselves because ALL of you matters!
Jess loves creating a safe space for women to open up and share their real selves, supporting them in revealing the parts they’ve been hiding, while also challenging them to step out of the familiar… because that’s where the MAGIC of liberation happens.
You see, Jess knows what it’s like to live as if you’re hiding… staying hidden from the things that scare you and avoiding allowing yourself to be truly seen and heard because deep down, you believe you won’t be accepted or loved if people knew who you REALLY are.
She has been there. For most of her life, she was afraid to reveal the true ‘Jess’. After graduating college, She got a job in the corporate world and did her best to blend in and do what she was told….and she was really good at it, too.
After a couple of years, she received a wake-up call when her position in the company was cut in a mass layoff, and she was pushed out into the world to fend for herself!
Rather than jump back into the corporate world where she felt like a small fish in a huge pond, Jess’s gut told her there was a different path for her. And in order to discover where that path led, she decided something had to change.
She realized that blending in and hiding had gotten her nowhere. She wasn’t happy. And it continued to get her nowhere as she tried to build her own coaching practice. Business was stagnant. Her relationships were surface level and unfulfilling. And her life just felt “blah”.
So, Jess began to step out of her comfort zone. AND she got support so that she felt safe enough to take risks, feel her discomfort and allow herself to be seen and heard in ways she never thought she could.
As a result, Jessica now loves to support women on their journeys of transformation so that they too can fully show up, share their truth and SHINE.
On her website she uses the words “I’m totally here for you”…and I know from personal experience that is true.
You see Jessica and I are both part of a community of women called “Tribal Truth”…and although we’ve never met (as she leads the tribe in San Francisco and I lead the tribe here in London), Jess has provided so much love, support and inspiration to me in the short time that we’ve known each other.
For me, it shows the power of a real community when two people from different continents can connect and share at such a deep level without ever having met.
Just this week when I was facing a challenge that I didn’t know quite how to overcome, Jess took the time to reach out to me, and hold space for me to share what was going on and supported me so beautifully through it. She is a true example of a feminine leader and I feel lucky to be able call her my friend.
So I would like for you to join me today in acknowledging and celebrating Jessica, both for the work that she does and for just being an amazing women who helps others.
…and I encourage anyone who has the opportunity to spend some time with Jessica to do so, she is a beautiful woman, inside and out and she genuinely touches people’s lives. So if you’re in the San Francisco area (or even if you’re not!) be sure to get in touch with her…you’ll be glad you did!
