Many times while working with Jess she insisted that I really could be happy, find my passion and do what I love to do. The big problem was, how do I unravel myself from what I thought I should be doing, and find that one thing that would make me happy? Well I’m delighted to report that I finally got it! This week I decided to leave a job that, although paid the bills, did not bring any satisfaction and in fact was beating me down. Because of Jess’ thoughtful questioning, empathetic listening and incredible insight into the human mind, I now have the clarity & peace of mind to realize that there is something special out there waiting for me, and she has given me the strength and det(...)
Working with Jess Sweet to create a thoughtful and effective giving plan has been a deeply gratifying and illuminating experience. It’s not only inspired me to give in ways that are aligned with my values and interests, it ensures that my donations make a powerful, tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most. Thank you, Jess!
Jessica came in to my life at the exact moment I needed her. It was almost magical. I talked to her on the phone briefly and knew I had found the perfect fit. Jessica really listens and gets to the core of your search. She is genuine and really cares about getting you on track. I found my experience with her always positive. She never invalidated my thoughts or feelings.
I would highly recommend her to anyone struggling in life. Jessica helped me through an incredibly difficult time where I felt lost and hopeless.
Thank you for all of your help. I admit that initially I was somewhat skeptical about submitting to any sort of personal coaching. You changed my mind, very quickly. Your thoughtful and insightful guidance has been inspirational. You have given me so many ideas and tools that have helped me manage my life better. I have become more efficient at getting things done. I am able to manage my time better. My attitude has improved. My life is more enjoyable. I highly recommend your services for anyone in search of a better way.
Jess's ability to listen closely coupled with her knowledge of the modern career landscape allowed me to tame the noise surrounding taking a big step.
I was very thankful to have Jess 'on my team', and she asked some pointed questions that made me think in a most productive way.
I was also amazed that she was able to put into words things about my current job that I had not been able to articulate.
My work with Jessica changed my life. After one career change that didn't work well, I knew I needed to find meaningful work but had no idea how to get there. Through our discoveries and conversations, Jessica led me on a new pathway to graduate school and a future in non-profit service. Jessica is someone you can trust to offer honest advice and take the time to accurately direct you to your best-fit. I've now recently finished a master's degree in a new field and have a wonderful job in a new city. Jessica was a pivotal element to this change, and I would recommend her services to anyone.
“Jessica was incredible in helping me figure out 1) exactly what type of work brings me the most happiness and 2) the necessary steps I needed to take in order to get paid to do it. Most importantly, she gave me the jump-start,motivation and inspiration I needed to achieve my goal.”
Jess thank you so much! You have been an inspiration, a motivator and the power behind restarting. You have in every step reminded me that it is never too late to do something you love and practically showing me how changing what I had been doing for the past 15 years can mean building on it rather than throwing those years away. What I appreciated most, is that it was not a just reassuring pat on the back. You are so action oriented, so full of ideas and constructive feedback, that in every single session you made a huge difference. I am very glad I met you and looking forward to working on the next phase with you! Thank you!
I'd say the biggest hurdle for me to find a job in my dream industry, work for a company whose values I could appreciate, have work-life balance and still pay my bills. I did not think that could exist and going through the coaching process with you helped me to realize that it did. Most of all, I didn't have to move and I can even walk to my workplace!
When I think back on it, it is actually pretty impressive that I got (almost) everything I wanted on my dream checklist. No job is perfect, of course, but I still think I got very lucky (with a lot of guidance from you, obviously).
I wanted to find more meaningful work, and get out of the corporate rat race so to speak, I wasn't quite ready to jump out of my salary. . . in great part due to our conversations, I ended up taking a job which was absolutely ideal for me at this stage of life. . . While still very satisfying financially, I actually chose the job which offered the lowest salary - but which offers a great sense of purpose and a solid quality of life. I truly don't think I would have landed where I am had it not been for your guidance and helping me really think hard and evaluate where my priorities lie. Thanks so much for your help Jessica!
I began working with Jess a little over a year ago when I was seemingly stuck in a job I hated. Using lots of questions and careful listening, she helped me brainstorm some possible well-suited careers based on my interests and abilities. After a lot of ambivalence and resistance on my part, however, she could see there was more to the situation. She continued to work with me, but changed her approach. She used her intuition and insight to help me clear a big psychological block that I wasn’t even aware that I had. Once she removed this barrier, I was able to take specific steps to get to the job I have today. Without her help, I probably would have stayed stuck forever. Thank y(...)
Growing up, I watched my dad suffer the hell of going every day to a job he hated. It left quite an impression on me and I promised myself I would always do work I loved. When I grew up, I made good on that promise by becoming a social worker and helping people. Then my first daughter was born. I found out that good childcare was so expensive, it was going to eat most of my paycheck, so I decided to do something different. That’s when I became an entrepreneur, and I asked myself, “What would I really love to do?” “What do I really want to help people with?”
That’s why Wishingwell Coaching was born.
