Becoming Unstoppable Now
Know what most motivational speakers have in common? Complacency. Leadership trainers? Apathy. Thought leaders? Lack of focus. In this weird professional field of ours, we give and give and give until we don’t have much to offer ourselves let alone others. Let’s take some time to really examine our own response patterns and take notice of our habits that get us in our own way. We can laugh, share, and dive deep into our own road blocks by taking responsibility for the problems that we claim to solve. We aren’t hypocrites; we are human. We have a calling to deliver a message that is bigger than we can measure and we spend time chasing leads and growing email lists. Jessica Pettitt promises in 60 minutes or less you can take a look at your business model, but more importantly your life, and figure out why you spend so much time frustrated, pissed off, or laying around eating cold pizza instead of changing the world. We can change the world and pay our bills! If we do the best we can with what we have some of the time, we will make better connections, build relationships that matter, have authentic conversations over hot pizza! Alanis Morissette’s concept of being Ironic isn’t lost on a group of professional speakers. Like the great leaders before us, we can learn, take responsibility, focus, while making mistakes, learning and learning again. We can’t kick ass and take names every day – but we can when we can. This is good enough, I promise.
About Jessica Pettitt
As a professional speaker, trainer, and facilitator, and stand up comic for over a decade, Jessica Pettitt, CSP, comes to CAPS to offer up her mistakes as well as her accidental smart choices as learning lessons. No matter how many years you have been speaking, a real honest conversation about the lonely nights in hotel rooms, constant sense of overwhelm, mixed with long autograph lines and standing ovations isn’t something just everyone can understand. Its time for a real celebration and wake up call – why not laugh along the way? Referred to as the “Margaret Cho” of diversity trainers, Jessica blends politics, humor, identity, and local flair with big city passion and energy. Sometimes you get a bathtub and chocolate covered strawberries and others you get the last free yogurt in the mini fridge breakfast bar, we do this work because it is a calling. Sometimes, we just can’t hear it. She is an open book, be careful what you ask her, she will answer it.
