ON WORKING WITH JADE
My creative baby was something I viewed as a “hobby” prior to working with Jade. During our time together, it became clear that it was imperative I make my creative baby a priority in that it stood out as a unique gift I have been uniquely designed to give the world.
My sessions with Jade are the most important “classes” I have ever taken. I highly recommend her unique brand of activation to anyone who wants to see where their talents can take them. If you need direction and a more pointed focus, Jade will definitely do her part in getting you to where you need to be.

Liz “The Boss” Boston
In just 8 weeks, I created a book proposal ready to be submitted. My entire book is outlined with chapter summaries. Multiple chapters are written. I launched a weekly blog, created a Facebook page with followers and post consistently with positive feedback.
I gained knowledge about my ideal audience and other important things like promoting my art and finding different ways I can profit from my projects. I also gained knowledge that I can use well into the future. I’m leaving with a guide I can follow and will implement over the course of this entire next year. I am thankful to Jade for helping me and for all of the big ideas and plans she has given me going forward with my project.
I have had the pleasure of working with Jade Simmons on the re-branding and vision-casting for my business. I came to the table with small hopes and limited dreams, but Jade empowered me to step into the fullness of my gifts and talents, and her coaching sessions emboldened me to take leaps toward a future brighter than one I could ever have imagined. In just three short months, we have worked synergistically to develop concrete milestones, create streamlined processes that promote and support efficiency, and brand myself and my company as a force to be reckoned with in the Interior Design industry. I am so appreciative of the time we’ve had to work together and I encourage any creative entrepreneur or woman-on-the-move who is serious about making their dreams a reality to jump on this chance to work with this tremendous talent

The experience of working with Jade has helped me to validate my worth as a person and an entrepreneur. The deep excavation that she challenged me to do has eradicated my doubts as to rather I deserve the title of Transformation Expert. I fully embrace the fact that I am indeed an Expert and I deserve to be heard and be compensated well for my expertise.
Speaker & Transformation Expert
Jade’s “School of Emergence Experience” has given me a broader picture and view of what my capabilities are as a multifaceted artist. You often hear, “The possibilities are endless!” and still not know how to get access to those “endless possibilities. Jade has shown me how to think to access those “endless possibilities.”
World-Class Action Storyteller
When Jade started talking about the difference between Reinvention and Evolution things everything came into focus. I saw how all the different twists and turns my life took between piano playing, teaching, screenwriting, blogging, and family has led me to what I’m doing now with my 50 Ordinary Women Interviews and how those conversations are about the very thing I’ve experienced in my own life. Just knowing this has given me the direction I need to start documenting my choices and decisions.
Author, Screenwriter & Pianist
I came to Jade with four websites and no direction. Jade was able to look at the big picture, and with laser focus she found the common thread between all of my “projects.” Now I have the direction and inspiration I needed to set my plan into action.
