Jessica Rector’s mission is simple: transform lives.
As a former TV talk show host, Jessica knows the power of not just asking questions…but asking the right questions. After all the right questions lead to better answers which give you the power to make real change in your organization and life.
Jessica has a rare combination of energy, vulnerability and authenticity when she speaks and consults, creating connection and massive impact on the spot. Her presentations include her own research that demonstrates the power of inner conversations on performance, sales, leadership, communication, relationships, and health. Audience members leave wowed and with actionable, proven steps to implement right away.
From nervously giving her last presentation for her MBA to now speaking in front of thousands, Jessica knows firsthand how to turn self-doubt into confidence which impacts everything. Through attempting suicide as a teen, shame around being a single mom in her thirties, and a brother who died by suicide, she knows how struggles can hold you back, prohibit achieving goals, and keep you stagnant if you let them. Jessica, a former top sales leader at a $40 billion international company, uses her personal stories and experience to help audience members have courageous conversations, starting with the dialogue they have with themselves first.
A #1 best-selling author, Jessica has written five books, including her latest release, Breaking the Silence: Taking the Sh(hh) Out of Shame. She has impacted thousands of lives through consulting with companies, coaching individuals, and speaking at conferences, companies, and associations including Keller Williams, Century 21, Mississippi Veterinary Medical Association, and The University of Texas, Arlington. Jessica is a Contributor for The Huffington Post and The Good Men Project and has been seen on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, Business Journal, and Market Watch.
When she isn’t traveling around the world speaking, Jessica enjoys drinking hot cocoa, eating ice cream, having fun with her young son, and learning about more Transformers. Every day conversations are an adventure with a five-year-old.
