Showing Up When Fear Tells You To Stay Home

Jessica Bettencourt knows what it’s like to face rejection, feel like she doesn’t belong, and second-guess big decisions. But she also knows that we have to face fear and risk failure to live out our calling. In I Almost Cancelled, Jessica shares how one scary decision after another led to a life she couldn’t even imagine. Her storytelling and southern charm will have you laughing at times and crying at others. She shows you step by step how to overcome self-doubt and build the life you’ve always wanted-not the life others tell you to want.

As Seen On



I am a public speaker and passionate about encouraging women in leadership and pursuing entrepreneurship. I believe we are all capable of great things when we overcome fear and self-doubt and stop worrying about what others think. If you have a dream – you should go for it. I will help unleash your inner confidence, help you recognize your God given talents, and encourage you to pursue the life of your dreams.

I can say, without hesitation, that the two most impactful conversations of my adult life were conversations I had with Jessica, six years apart. In both conversations, I casually mentioned a goal I had, and then promptly laughed off said goal, deeming it impossible. Each time, Jessica was quick to catch my self-doubt and immediately challenged me on my limiting beliefs. “You need to think bigger,” she said. “Let’s hash this out together.”

Fuzzy, warm “think bigger” statements are easy to deliver. But the second part – the “hashing it out” is what sets Jessica apart as a leader. She challenged me to first believe that I was capable, and then, through the power of her own wisdom and experiences, helped me formulate goals and action steps to make my once-doubtful dreams a concrete, wildly successful achievement.
