Inspire Speaker Course
Have you always wanted to be a speaker?
Are you already speaking and want to move to the next level?
Are you ready to make this the year you take some intentional steps to make that happen?
I’ve been writing and speaking for over twenty years and I love teaching others how to hone their communication skills and make an income doing what they love! I’m also the Founder of Hearts at Home, an organization that produced professional conferences for moms for 24 years. I’ve been on both sides of the speaking world so I understand speaking from both the speaker and the meeting planner’s perspectives!
I Believe In YOU!I believe in YOU and want to help you learn how to leverage your experience, knowledge, and wisdom to inspire others. There are lessons I’ve learned the hard way that I’d like to pass along to you. There are steps I've found that will help you create and deliver a compelling message. There are strategies I’ve discovered that help build relationship with meeting planners and negotiating finances. There are skills I’ve honed that help you build a platform to reach more people. I want to come alongside you to help you make this the year you got serious about telling your story and launching your speaking ministry!
Turn Your Mess Into Your MessageI’m a firm believer in authenticity. In our hyper-connected world, it’s entirely too easy for us to compare our insides to someone else’s outsides. I believe speakers need to be honest about the good AND the hard parts of life. No one wants to listen to a know-it-all, but everyone loves to hear from someone who knows what it feels like to be in the trenches. I want to help you share your stories, your wisdom, and your experience in a way that lets others know they’re not alone and inspires them to take the next right step in their own life.
I also want to help YOU take the next right step in your own life as a storyteller. I want to help you learn how to tell your stories well, in a way that both entertains and inspires. I want to help you create and deliver messages that make a difference in someone’s life.
This is why I’m so excited about the Inspire Speaker Course!

- Are you already speaking and want to move to the next level?
- Are looking for a mentor to guide you down the speaking road?
We’re Better Together!We’re not meant to do life alone. We’re also not meant to learn alone. I’ve learned from some wonderful speakers throughout the years. I’ve also made plenty of mistakes (remind me to tell you about the “UM” sign my friend used to sit on the front row with!)
I’ve learned to be a confident, public speaker because I’ve tapped into the wisdom of others. I’ve moved from where I was to where I wanted to be because of the community I immersed myself in.
I want to be part of YOUR community! I also want you to benefit from an exciting community of communicators. After all, we’re better together!
I Want to Cheer You On!There’s something very powerful about knowing someone is in your corner! There’s also something to be said about learning from someone who has years of experience. The world needs your story but you need to know where to start, how to take next steps, and how to craft and deliver a compelling message. I want to teach you how to do that!

This class was the right tool at the right time for me. Jill combined practical organization, emotional storytelling skills and confidence-building tips for a very holistic teaching of public speaking. I appreciated how much time and preparation she invested in this group. I had three public speaking events during the course of the class and was thrilled to get more positive feedback each time as I incorporated Jill's teachings.

If you want to turn speaking into a career path (or part of your career path), I urge you to take this online course! The wisdom you will glean from Jill will be worth the value as she shares the ins and outs of speaking professionally. I personally gained a greater understanding of how to put together and deliver a dynamic presentation, as well as the discussion of often hush-hush topics, like pricing and the business of speaking. I would recommend this course for anyone who has a message and wants to know how to deliver it in a professional manner. You will gain techniques and strategies from a well-known speaker to implement instantly.

What a great investment into my public speaking career! I've been on the edge of public speaking for a while and this course gave me the tools I need to catapult forward. I was impressed with the amount of information, hands on teaching/feedback, and practical applications that happened in a short 4-6 week time period. Jill's not only a fabulous speaker but she is a great teacher of her craft as well. This course promises to deliver, the next step is yours!
