Learn how to:

  • Stop “procrasti-working” and refocus to ramp up momentum so you can finish the day strong with a solid list of wins that light you up inside

  • Kick that creative slump and tap into your energetic flow so you can learn to trust yourself to make the big moves that will have the most impact (and add more zeros to your bank account...)
  • Break free from the “shoulds” that are sabotaging your unique working style (and productivity) you can crush your impact & income goals like a boss!

About Us

Oh hey there! I’m Jess.

I’m the Founder of The Groundswell Effect online community and Groundswell Coworking, a co-working office space in Canada.

I’m what you might call multi-passionate - for years, I’ve worked on side projects, volunteered on boards and committees, run businesses, and supported others’ businesses, making magic happen with a laptop and a whole lotta grit. But before I fully committed to entrepreneur life, I dabbled between part-time office work and freelancing remotely from home.

I thought I would love the distraction-free world of working from home (the freedom! Unlimited coffee breaks! No commute!) but guess what – I hated it.

I would stare at my computer for hours on end with nothing to show for it (and by staring at my computer, I mean compulsively checking Facebook™ for signs of human life – are you out there?! Anyone?!)

And truthfully, I started to freak out a little… Have I lost my creative edge?

Am I finally crumbling under the pressure of keeping up with a job AND running my businesses?

Or maybe (gasp!) I’m truly not cut out for entrepreneur life after all?!

But at that time, I had no idea that the reason for this feeling of utter powerlessness over my to-do list was directly related to one crucial “X” factor that I had grossly underestimated during my days in the office…

Human connection!

Yes - actual living, breathing people.

Because after your doggo runs out of ideas, where do you turn?

Your day-to-day starts to get pretty mundane, uninspiring… then - poof! – all of a sudden, your motivation has disappeared, and you’re questioning (literally) everything.

After years of feeling frustrated with missing my own deadlines and the constant (unproductive) rollercoaster of building an empire from home in my PJs, something finally clicked…

What I realized was that I missed the camaraderie and sense of teamwork that I had taken for granted in the office. I missed the spontaneous brainstorming sessions and the incredible spark of energy I felt when I knew I was on the edge of my next big idea, and the excitement in my colleagues’ faces as they felt it too.

This discovery was nothing less than life-changing, as I now saw clearly the “dark side” of working from home and how it can have a REAL impact on your business growth goals.

So I set out on a mission to bring impact-driven solopreneurs together to amplify the success and impact of one through the power of inspired collaboration!

I would not be where I am if it wasn't for the Groundswell family. Every chance I get, I let people know how instrumental Groundswell has been to my career path and my life in general. While we aren't always grounded, there is always someone there to pull us back down or remind us to celebrate the wins, sit in uncomfortable places, and ride the waves. This group is invaluable to me. You have created something magical, and I am honored to be a part of it.
