The best things in life happen just outside your
You’re in the right place if you want to:
Wake up every morning excited to tackle the day ahead.
Gain back time and energy in your day to focus on what you do best.
Discover new ways to reach your goals.
I know taking a leap can be challenging. But you’re in luck -- this is what I do best -- push people and businesses out of their comfort zones so they can reach their goals.
Hey there, go-getter. I ’m Jessica.
(But you can call me Jess.)
I’m the founder and CEO of Jessica Lawlor & Company (JL&Co), a writer, personal branding expert and speaker.
I live by the saying “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
In 2016, I plunged out of my personal comfort zone when I quit a safe job in public relations to pursue a dream career -- starting my own business.
It wasn’t always this way. A few years ago, I almost drove myself to the point of complete burnout.
With a full-time job, a successful blog and a growing side hustle helping businesses manage and write content (plus, training to become a yoga teacher), you’d think I’d felt on top of the world. After all, I was doing so many things I truly love.
But to be completely honest, I felt scattered, stressed and unhappy. I was doing too much, leaving little time for myself, let alone for the people I love.
My life was full, yet I didn’t feel fulfilled.
So I decided to make a big change. I crafted a plan to quit my job, saving $40,000 in a “just in case this doesn’t work out” fund, and finally, in 2016, I took the ultimate leap.
I haven’t looked back since.
