"You have a concussion."
Imagine discovering that undiagnosed, untreated brain damage sustained in an infamous car accident had stolen a full year of your life.
A year during which agonizing pain from a resulting spinal injury makes activities you enjoy either impossible or unbearable due to the physical and mental chaos caused by undetected short circuits in your mind.
From 2009 to 2010, my life was a stark lesson in the extent of the power the brain has over every aspect of our lives.
After my recovery, I applied my years of experience as an in-demand organizational business skills expert to develop what I now call brain-based business skills. I used them to re-establish my six-figure consulting business within six months... eliminating over $75,000 in medical debt in the process.
Over the following seven years, my small business clients who used the same techniques had results just as astonishing as my own, each adding hundreds of thousands to double-digit millions to their revenue.
"Jill was instrumental in transitioning my company from a single restaurant to what is now a global restaurant group." --Janet Zuccarini (CEO, Gusto 54)
"What stands out about Jill is how down to earth, effective and practical her methods are."--Guy Ozery (CEO, Ozery Bakery)
"Jill took what was a very scattered, unstructured goal of ours and turned it into a concrete, usable, systematized strategy that my entire team had a part in creating. Not only that but by using proven methods of programming our brains for success, by the end of our session we felt unstoppable and energized to make our goal a reality. Thank you, thank you, thank you Jill!" -Christine Cowern (Entrepreneur, Cowern Group)
My research study in neuroscience for my master's in leadership at Royal Roads University led to conversations with an internationally published neuroscientist, William Cunningham at the University of Toronto, which helped me uncover scientific research that validates the effectiveness of my programs.
Contrary to popular belief, part of the subconscious mind is in charge of most what we consciously experience. It is also the ultimate source of focus, willpower, decision-making, and desire to achieve. The skills and behaviors I teach are truly brain-based, proven to put the conscious in sync with the subconscious. So we can program our brains to incline toward decisions and actions that move us toward that goal with or without our conscious awareness.
But too many new businesses never succeed. Those that do often drain away the dream that motivated their founders and in the first place. Brain-based training keeps your dream in your mind's eye. And now I'm offering my brain-based training online for the first time this year.
Tiny team? No team? Armed with a Master's in leadership; studies in business, change, communication, cognitive psychology and neuroscience; and over a decade's experience as a consultant and trainer with well over 10,000 coaching hours, I'll show you how to build and optimize your own business strategies, structures, and systems while adding more time in your day to enjoy your lifestyle.
Like so many of us, I am very good at what I do. But I only charged hourly for my services and classes. Jill convinced me to create programs and packages that give me the assurance I can serve my clients' best interests [beyond our hourly sessions]. -Judit Ronai (Consultant)
I'm proud to say these same skills continue to allow me to run a business I love and live my life as I please: with time left over to enjoy sailing on Lake Ontario, cooking for friends-and my adorable mini Aussiedoodle puppy, Quinte. If I can do it, you can, too.
See you in class!
We can also get to know each other better at my new Facebook page where I just launched Jill'flix, a free brain-based performance skills miniseries, and where my followers will be among the first to get updates about all my programs, including the soon-to-launch Business Out of the Ordinary for Mavericks (BOOM-U).
