“I loved that the 30 Days of Gutsy course was easily adaptable to the small and big goals of your life. It was equal parts inspirational and action-oriented and this was great for my easily overwhelmed brain. Not only was I able to focus on my current goal but Jessica provided me with tools to use beyond this course and I can honestly say I WILL be going forward with a lot of the things taught in this course.”

“The 30 Days of Gutsy course helped me draw a more clear path to my goals than I had been able to in the past. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with so many things going on, and Jessica did a great job of honing in on the steps that are imperative to establish and reach your goals. I learned a great deal about my work habits, what I was to accomplish and just about myself over the 30 lessons. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to take the next step, but might need a little push in the right direction.”

Why I Created This Course 

For the past two years, I’ve shared my thoughts, experiences and best advice here on the Get Gutsy blog.

Now, I want to take it to the next level and work even more closely with go-getters like you who are ready to reach your goals.

Three years ago, I was in a very different place. Thirty pounds heavier, confused about the future, unclear about my goals and uncomfortable in my own skin, I felt lost.

I decided to take a chance. I changed my attitude. I made the decision to get out of my own way and begin taking risks to explore and reach my goals to live a happier, more fulfilling life.

You can do the same.

That’s why I created this course.

To help you do that.

To help you see that your fears really aren’t so scary after all. To show you that your dreams are actually within reach. To open your eyes to the possibilities that lay ahead if you step outside your comfort zone.

To help you get gutsy.

0001-63995136“For me, this course was both therapeutic and inspiring. Taking the time to sit down and disconnect, read the lesson of the day, and write to the prompts really opened my eyes to things that I didn’t know I feared, meanings behind behaviors I didn’t realize before, and what goals I really felt passionately about. The lesson “say no to say yes to yourself” was especially empowering. At the end of the course I not only had an action plan that I can use to reach a specific goal, but I learned skills that I can use for a multitude of situations. As an added benefit, Jessica shares her own successes and failures, which are both funny and heartwarming. It’s like doing a course with your best friend.”

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What if I get behind on the course? That’s totally okay! Although you’ll receive one lesson each day, you are more than welcome to take the course at your own pace.

2. I don’t know if I’m ready to tackle my big goal. Should I still sign up? Come on…you’re asking the founder of the Get Gutsy blog/community if you should get gutsy? Absolutely! Life begins at the end of your comfort zone and while it may feel super scary to think about making your BIG goal a reality, the course will give you the tools and confidence to make it happen.

3. When will this course be offered again? The course will likely not be offered again until the fall, so if you’re thinking about it, join now!

4. What if I find that the course isn’t for me? Do you offer refunds? I hope that won’t be the case, but if you find the course is not for you within two weeks of the March 1 start date, I will gladly offer you a full refund.

5. What day/time will your office hours be? Office hours will vary by the week, but will always be shared with you well ahead of time for planning purposes. The days and times will be different each week to allow me to serve those in different time zones.

6. How much time should I set aside for each daily lesson? I recommend setting aside about 20 minutes each day to fully read through each lesson. During the beta group, I found that many students enjoyed reading the lessons and reflecting each day, but chose to do the bulk of the exercises and challenges during the weekend when they had more time to devote to the course. It’s truly up to you and how you work best!

7. What will I walk away with at the end of the 30 Days of Gutsy course? When the course is complete, you will have set a goal you’re confident in and you’ll have the tools you need to achieve that goal (or potentially, depending on the goal’s timeframe…you may even complete it during the 30 days).


“I took Jessica Lawlor’s 30 Days of Gutsy course and it played a huge role in the creation of my very first product (a 2015 calendar) which was a big, scary, intimidating goal before I started the course. The daily lessons helped me break down my goal into manageable steps and tackle them one by one. I finally got out of my own way. I highly recommend the 30 Days of Gutsy course!”
