Course overview

Overworked & Unfulfilled --> Content & Purposeful

If you’re like us, you once aimed for superhero status, juggling career and family. Now, feeling the squeeze, the "work-life balance" myth seems cruel.


You've tried survival mode, putting in less effort at work, chore charts for your family, you name it. But genuine fulfillment remains elusive.


Here's the thing: The way our world is set up makes it near impossible to be the ladder-scaling professional, Instragram-worthy parent and find time for the elusive self-care.


This course unpacks the why and gives you actionable tools to redefine success on your terms.


Lessons will be short and digestible, designed to suit your full life. And while we're big fans of therapy, think of the cost as less than two sessions with a counsellor with outcomes you couldn't achieve in a 1:1 session.

Who is this course for

01

You're exhausted trying to blend career goals, parenting ideals, and your own well-being (including being with your partner and friends!).

02

You crave a community that gets you, and you're tired of quick fixes that lead to the same old patterns.

03

You're done comparing yourself to impossible social standards and ready to define fulfillment on your own terms.

What you’ll get out of this course

Understanding of why we feel so overwhelmed and underperforming at the same time (and why it isn't your fault!)

Open your eyes to the 'rules' of work, family, and self-care and how they weren't designed with working parents in mind.

Inspiration from rule-breaking role models who redefine success on their terms

Explore diverse work arrangements, family dynamics, daily practices and ways of thinking that inspire you to design a life that doesn't require sacrificing well-being.

A unique work/caregiving/self-care blend tailored to you

Create your personalized blueprint for thriving AND start implementing them, like scheduling long-overdue friend meetups or time with your partner to talk about things other than chores.

A support network of people who *actually* get you in order to create accountability and provide encouragement

Find your tribe of peers facing similar challenges. Build a support system for vulnerability, shared experiences, and practical solutions as you move towards a more fulfilling life.

What people are saying

        This course has been a game changer for me. The big difference is that I no longer think that there is something wrong with me that needs to be fixed - I don't need more boosting or training or time management skills. I now understand that it is the way our world operates that doesn't make it easy to be a super professional and involved parent.

        The learnings have been incredible. Jess is practical about how parents can rid themselves of the unhelpful ideas that hold us back in finding our happiness. This isn’t about life hacks, but about changing our mindsets. I truly recommend any time that you can spend in her company.

        I felt lost in a cycle of burnout and guilt at one point. Jess and Ashley opened my eyes to the hidden pressures I was putting on myself and helped me better understand my values. Now, I'm making choices that align with my authentic self, and it's made such a positive difference.

        This course names the unspoken struggles so many people in leadership face. I learned the traps of hustle culture and unrealistic expectations, and how to break from them. Even better I have a community of people around me now that keep me invigorated and inspired.

Well-Being Champion | Mom Of Two | Ex-Corporate Climber

My ambition wanted me to be a corporate superstar, but bath time had other plans. After years in consulting, banking, and startups, I've felt the impossible crush of career goals clashing with those tiny humans who need me – and with just wanting to find time for self-care! The 'success' I saw on LinkedIn felt hollow.


Now, I'm passionate about helping overwhelmed professionals redefine fulfillment, blending ambition, caregiving, and well-being into a life that feels authentic.

Intelligent Failure Expert | Mom Of Two | Ex-Hustle Entrepreneur

I used to be the ultimate overachiever: successful career, loving family, even an ironman and some jiu jitsu thrown in. I checked all the boxes, but inside, I felt like a fraud. At 40, I found myself wondering why – despite all my success – it still never felt like enough.


Thankfully, 13 years of helping organizations practice intelligent failure have given me some hard-earned lessons about what REAL success means – and how to build a life you love without sacrificing your well-being. I'm excited to join and facilitate these sessions to support your learning and growth.

Until the systems change, we will be swimming against the current.


We need to learn to find the 'enoughness' within and we can do that together.
