HEY THERE, I'M JEANNIE
(as in, in the bottle, or from the lamp)
I’m an Actor, Empowerment Coach, Breathwork Facilitator, Introvert and First-Generation Entrepreneur.
Obsessed with: strong milky tea, peanut butter from the jar with a spoon, Star Wars, personality tests that make me feel seen, and helping you create a life you don’t want to run away from.
Avoiding at all costs: small-talk, and anyone that says “follow my exact method and you’ll get the same results as me”.
I didn’t always identify as an introvert.
I mean, I’m an actor, how could I be? A few years ago, I took a personality test that changed my life. For the first time in my life I felt truly seen, and validated for my experiences. That might sound overly-dramatic. But what do you expect? I’m a highly sensitive actor. It’s my duty.
4 years ago,
you would have found me passively pursuing a career as an actor. Feeling victimised and misunderstood in an industry that could never give me the validation I so desperately craved. Exhausted, filling my days with business, and faking extroversion, because that's what I thought I needed to do, and feeling like I was doing everything I could to 'make it', and get noticed.
I was lost, apologising for my very existance;
living in perpetual internal chaos, knowing I was meant for so much more, but no knowing how I could ever get there. I knew things needed to change.
But it first had to start with me; coming back to me.
So, I decided to stop existing for the benefit of others, and start living for the love of me.
Where Am I Now?
(apart from bathing in the nearest patch of sun)
I’m probably sipping on a large mug of Yorkshire tea, balancing (or not balancing, which is more likely) creating and playing for a living, and dreaming up new ways to amplify female introverted voices in traditionally extroverted spaces. So they too can create confidence their way and make an impact without burning out.
Are you ready to take off the mask and start showing up unapologetically as you?
