Hello and welcome!
My name is Jess Lively, I live in Chicago, and I’m on a mission to help people design lives, homes, and business with intention.
More specifically, I help people refine (or define) their purpose and determine the next steps to make their vision a reality.
I also love helping people seeking a sense of purpose to piece together their talents and experiences in a way that is completely unique, deeply meaningful, and produces abundance in their lives.
Each of these intentional pursuits have been a part of my life and career for more than fourteen years. Below, you can find out more about how we can work together to create the life, business, or space you envision.
Life with Intention
I help those looking for a purposeful and practical approach to designing their ideal life or career.
For the past seven years I have been curating my life with intention. I have taken the career path less traveled, changed my thoughts, broken free from my weight obsession, overcome heartbreak, grown (and closed) a successful business, found new love, and eloped to Paris. All of these actions though not always easy, were worthwhile because they truly reflected my overall life intentions.
I now want to share the tools and methods I have used to create a life I love with you. We only live once and we have the opportunity to do it mindfully and with purpose. I am here to help you tap into what you most truly want and then work with you to form the action steps needed to make it happen.
I offer one-on-one consulting and live workshops across the country. Read on.
Business with Intention
I have a talent for helping new business owners and established entrepreneurs find focus, stand out in crowded markets, and increase effectiveness. This results in deeply meaningful - and profitable – purpose-based business.
My specialties include creative services, online lifestyle products, delegating, time management, and social media.
At the age of 15, I started a lifestyle accessory business, Jess LC. Over the next fourteen years I grew the business from a tiny start-up with a $5 bag of beads to a six-figure, successful online shop selling worldwide. After graduating from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, I took the company from part-time to full-time. It was certainly not an easy road to take right out of school, but the end result was worth the struggle.
Our products included handmade jewelry, quality handbags, leather iPad cases, scarves, stationery, prints, and more. I collaborated with many up and coming creative businesses and I sold our jewelry to both small boutiques and Macy*s alike. In November, 2012 I closed the shop as my consulting and workshops expanded and became my full-time career.
Which was a part of my ultimate goal: to help people design their lives with intention.
Throughout my entrepreneurial journey, I have enjoyed helping others design and grow their businesses. I excel at identifying the strengths of a small business (or business owner) to craft a unique, purpose-based businesses. I am also gifted at developing purpose statements, creating an action plan, integrating life and business goals, and getting people excited about their future.
Currently, I offer one-on-one consulting packages, live workshops across the country, a free monthly meet-up group, and a free business advice email series. Read on.
Space with Intention
I adore clean, modern design mixed with rustic, glam, or cheerful accents. I help companies create well-executed brands and spaces that blend seamlessly. (Here is what clients have shared.)
I am currently taking on a limited number of commercial and residential client projects. Read on.
