This week’s guest is my wonderful friend Jessica Huie. I cannot tell you how lucky I am to have her in my life.

The word inspirational gets thrown around a lot these days doesn’t it, but Jessica really does live up to that description.

She went from being a teen mother expelled from school and living in a hostel, to having an amazing career in PR. She founded two awarding-winning businesses and received an MBE for her contribution to promoting diversity in business.

Having built the life she thought she desired and looking very successful on the outside, her father passed away. This gave her an awakening to really assess everything with fresh eyes. She is now on a mission to help us connect to who we really are and to live from the heart rather than the head.

We chat about:

  • How to find your purpose (it’s not what you might think)
  • Why control is the enemy of authenticity and joy
  • Why we have the desire to control everything in our lives
  • How to live based on how it feels to you and not how it looks to others
  • How to make bold choices even if they go against the grain
  • Her parenting philosophy
  • How she handled the fallout from moving with her son from Surrey to Jamaica in the middle of a pandemic

This is an incredible episode, a very spiritual episode. My hope and intention is that you find real peace and comfort in Jessica’s words. Every time I speak with Jessica it just really helps me cut through the day-to-day stresses and worries and ask myself what kind of life do I really want to live and am I creating it for myself. I really hope this episode does that for you too.

As always, we continue the conversation over on Instagram, so come and join us there.
