I’m Jillian

I would love to support you in reclaiming Joy in your work, life and play so you can wake up to a life you love!



As we near the end of 2019, may we take the time to reflect on the good, the bad and the OFG's (Opportunities For Growth) ...

I don't know about you but I LOVE the time between Christmas and New Year's when you lose track of time and have the space to reflect and dream...

For the past several years I have been making lists of lessons in order to set future Jillian up for success.

With my Joy-coaching clients and in all of my programs I encourage doing an OFG review regularly.

Journaling the takeaways from life's lessons is helpful for feeling like you're walking away with golden nuggets rather than just bumps + bruises.

This year I thought it would be nice to share my lessons should they be helpful anyone who needs to hear them. Below are the best ones I'm taking from 2019:

  • Put your own energy first. This goes along with the whole oxygen mask/airplane metaphor which never gets old. For me at least.
  • Plan + schedule everything. Every single thing on your plate. Including non-negotiable Joy time!
  • Always use agreements + follow systems. They are there for a reason. Every time anything has gone sideways it has been when I sidestep systems that I've implemented for a reason.
  • Know and understand your numbers. I'm over experiencing feast + famine in my business. It's time for energized + Joyful inner and outer wealth!
  • Nurture your people. Quit looking ahead and focus on all of the people currently in your life. Pay attention to them. Hear them. See them. Give them as much as you can.
  • Schedule based on energy rather than time. ( A lesson I continue to relearn.)
  • Be more like Lily. For so many reasons! Live. Love. Play. Cuddle. On repeat.
  • Mind your own alignment. I  believe this is all we truly need to focus on. In alignment we have the ability to show up in love with love. 
  • Use Sacred Discipline. I came up with this term in my 6 month EXPANSION program. This is how we take inspired action and stay in alignment!
  • Joyful morning and evening routines are non-negotiable. See Sacred Discipline.
  • Joy is my currency. Dream more + get excited! 
  • Stop having sales. Share the value in your offerings instead. You are worth every penny + more!
  • Learn the programs that stress you out so you feel empowered. I'm talking about you Infusionsoft. 
  • Remember your why. Review it daily!
  • Schedule in celebrations. 
  • Schedule in stillness after celebrations;)
  • Block off 2 days a week for inspired work. No meetings. No outings. Pants + showers are optional. Hello entrepreneurial perk!
  • Ask for help silly! You don't have to do it all alone. There are people who are happy to support you.
  • Surrender! Let go of the illusion that you know best. Trust you are being supported and guided. You don't always need to know what this looks like.  
  • Have FUN! It's always best to choose the fun thing. Particularly when feeling blocked or negative. 
  • Get excited about contrast. It gives you the opportunity to re-desire!
  • Always start with boundaries. Set them right away and things will be better for everyone.
  • Protect your energy by honouring and cleansing it.
  • Book moon-time in your schedule. Honour it. 
  • Let go of perfection. We are human for a reason. Learn baby learn!
  • When you know it, do it. Don't put off the conversation, email or phone call. Tackle uncomfortable things head on. Also, tell others the nice things you're thinking about them. 
  • Avoid drama + gossip and encourage people to speak to the source. We are all just doing our best.
  • What you notice in others is a reflection of you, whether "good" or "bad". 
  • You are nature. Spend more time in it for goodness sake!
  • Believe the best in people. You will feel less like an asshole later. 
  • Don't take things personally! It's very rarely about you.
  • Don't rush the process. If it compromises Joy, don't do it.
  • Purposefully place your f*cks. 

Last but not least, you don't need to be, do or have anything else to matter and make an incredible impact on the world. You simply need to show up and shine your light in the way that only you can. 

Remember who you really are. Light, peace, love, JOY.

There you have it, the best lessons I'm taking from 2019. I can't wait to see what 2020 brings.

I encourage you to take some time to review your OFG's from 2019 and make note of the lessons. Your future self will thank you! 

If you're feeling ready to become the deliberate designer of a life you're excited about, check out my Joy-based services + offerings. I'd love to support you in befriending yourself, aligning with Joy and living your best friggin' life! 

Wishing you an abundant +  Joyful New Year! 

Xj, Jillian
