Many of us know we have a bigger purpose than the one we are living.
Through JJ’s professional journey, she discovered that many women are experiencing some level of misalignment because they’re working on projects or tolerating relationships that are draining their good energy and often preventing them from unleashing their life’s work.
Many people assume that when you are successful or get to a certain level at work or in life, you’ll experience a sense of bliss. However, after interviewing professional women, many had moments of joy, but most had more hours, days, and years of feeling less than good enough, doubting their purpose and impact.
This keynote is based on her third book, Seeking: 74 Key Findings to Raise Your Energy, Sidestep Your Self-Doubts, and Align with Your Life’s Work, where JJ unpacks the strategies that helped her infuse more purpose and meaning into her work and life.
Let’s take time to define a misaligned purpose and how this may be showing up in your life today. We will explore strategies for unleashing your potential and tapping into your inner wisdom to empower yourself to achieve true alignment in your life from within.
The next step toward your life’s work is often right inside you.

The Whispers within Your Work
Duration: 30-120 Mins
Audience: Women Professionals
Topic Focus: Self-Empowerment, Alignment, Fuel Stations, Perfectionism
Many of us have ups and downs, sidesteps and restarts in our careers and lives.
JJ’s career was no different. She had the typical twists and turns, lessons and triumphs.
Yet, as she advanced in her career, she did not anticipate the whispers of uncertainty and the desire to seek beyond her to-do list.
Get ready to gain the insights that inspired JJ, a persistent woman who refused to settle for the external measures of success in her career and life.
She started seeking off the side of her desk by launching a women’s group in 2008. As that quickly grew, she started writing her first book filled with inspiring strategies for working moms with young children in 2011. The whispers intensified, and she continued to feel the pull towards something more, leading her to write a second book in 2016. This six-time award-winning book promoted action-based strategies for women to advance their careers to leadership positions and launched her speaking career. Her speaking invites gave her a view of women from all corners of the globe, where she recognized that she once again was not alone.
JJ’s journey was far from over as her whispers continued. She followed the universal pull and launched Together We Seek, a retreat for professional women, including JJ herself, to reconnect with themselves and sit with their whispers.
Through it all, JJ remained determined to honor her whispers, even when it meant juggling multiple activities and projects off the “side of her desk” while continuing to show up for her work and family. These activities fueled her work and life, and many of her current projects came to her as whispers first.
This program will inspire beyond the room as JJ gets real and shares insight on how a woman in tech, reaches beyond the success and accomplishments of a 20-year career, including leadership positions, two IPOs, hundreds of business trips, the launch of women in tech group, writing her first book, and multiple board seats, to follow a whisper to seek more ways to work from the inside out.
Join JJ as she shares how her plan had a plan of its own with key findings and lessons from her third book, Seeking: 74 Key Findings to Raise Your Energy, Sidestep Your Self-Doubts, and Align with Your Life’s Work so you too can tap into your whispers to illuminate your path ahead.
