We are taught a mind-numbing number of b.s. narratives, from love to business, throughout our entire lives. I help people to recognize those narratives, to give those narratives the middle finger, and to take steps toward an empowered present and future. Shatter the narrative, and reach your higher self.

Why Jessie Zaylía

When it comes to thriving, whether as a business or as an individual, Jessie's goal is to help her audiences identify and call out the b.s. that we've been told is the "right" way to treat employees, students, and ourselves. Understanding that we are spoonfed what she refers to as "b.s. narratives" from the time that we enter this world, Jessie helps her audiences and students turn challenges on their heads in order to use seemingly negative circumstances as fuel for a brighter today and future.  

Her experience as a former partner at a law firm, a waitress (for a decade previous to her work in the law), a published author, and a thoroughly researched presenter provides a holistic, no-nonsense approach to tackling challenges in the workplace, at universities, and within our private psyches.

Jessie has presented in front of thousands of people, starting with national academic conferences while she was finishing up her undergraduate degree in 2005.  Her audiences have included academic professionals, graduate students, attorneys, employers, insurance carriers, and third-party claims administrators. What makes her soar is connecting with people, engaging them, and seeing lives transform.


Why managers should stop b.s.'ing their teams and themselves (a.k.a. how to improve employee loyalty, which increases morale and profits)


Why getting paid to be trained and excelling at crawling will lead to true success


Why college/university administrators should stop b.s.'ing their students about what it takes to succeed (a.k.a. being real with students is good for business)


Why students should call out the "b.s. of success" and channel learning in real ways (a.k.a. being generous will create an abundant life)

What People Are Saying

"You are a great speaker!"
- Joy Jain

"I have always all ways found you to be bright, alert, and refreshing, even at 8:45 on a Saturday morning. Your firm handshake shows you are serious about your health, and you carry that serious health attitude to the stage, where you take your audience on a tour de force through a maze of complicated issues that you then break down on a practical level for all to understand. It goes without saying, you know all too well it’s nice to be important but more important to be nice."
- Steven Block

"You definitely have great presentation skills!"
- Nerissa Burnside

"Although we have only met a few times, each occasion was memorable. You are hilarious, generous with your time, and wildly intelligent."
- James Lepadat

"I loved your trainings, sense of humor, presence, and most of all, your magnetic energy."
- ShayTrias


I bring energy, humor, connection, research, and real-life experiences (both good and bad) to my speeches. I don't waste time with sugar-coating. I'm direct, practical, and feisty. From a decade-long waitress to a full partner at a law firm, I rose through the ranks by deeply caring about the lives of clients, colleagues, and employees. Then I left it all for a higher calling. My goal is to create an experience for every person in every audience. This starts with health as I invite people to literally stand up at certain times throughout the course of a presentation, which is physically and mentally health-promoting. Standing up also strengthens the metaphor to stand up against some of the b.s. that we're taught as leaders, students, and people. Once we understand that we've been operating in b.s., we can shatter that narrative to improve our lives and our organizations.
