The day that changed my life

In January 2016, I was a ticking time bomb. Out of nowhere, I was diagnosed with a life-threatening and ultra rare blood disease. One in a million people have it and I’ll need treatment for the rest of my life.

Until the day I was diagnosed, I had been lucky to never face death. It’s all around us but I had never stopped to truly consider my own.

Since my diagnosis, there have been a handful of times when I was convinced I was going to die. In each of these moments, all I could think was “I’m not ready” and all I could feel was the overwhelming fear that I was going to die before becoming the person I wanted to be.

Unleash Your Extraordinary helps you refocus on what you want to achieve and provides actionable steps to get you there – no excuses.

Facing our mortality

My diagnosis - and the experiences that followed - unleashed in me something extraordinary: a resilience that can feel superhuman, the confidence to pursue my ambitions now and a determination to harness what I've learned to help other people.

My wake up call sparked into action a number of changes: one of the most notable being to quit my job as a product manager in San Francisco (where I was living at the time) to define what my most extraordinary life looked like and how I could make it happen.

What followed was a three month period of reflection and discovery to uncover how I could help other people achieve their most extraordinary lives.

Everyone left the workshop inspired, excited and determined to make positive changes. Thank you, Jess!
