When the world went into lockdown in March 2022, many people saw it as an opportunity to re-evaluate their lives.

So many people left their jobs to enter a new career or create their own business that it spawned the term “The Great Resignation”.

Three years on, life coach Jessica Lightbourne says that trend is continuing.

“A lot of folks are moving out of traditional career paths into entrepreneurship even now, when it is predicted that a recession is coming,” said Ms Lightbourne, founder of Jessica Lightbourne Coaching.

She said the pandemic shifted people’s consciousness and values.

“Because we had so much time to sit and think and reflect, people have become more connected to their values and really conscious of their mortality and what is in the way of them being satisfied in their lives,” she said.

To help people to achieve their goals, entrepreneurial and personal, Ms Lightbourne is launching a six-month personal growth programme called Curating Me.

“People who are signing up for this are just ready for change,” Ms Lightbourne said. “I have men and women signing up. I have entrepreneurs and people who want to love themselves and people who struggle with that.”

Many of her clients are great at serving others, but put their own needs on the back burner.

“They get stuck in this pattern of being unfulfilled and being drained and burnt out and really longing for things that feel impossible,” she said. “But, when I talk to people, it is so possible. They just need to get out of their own way.”

Curating Me follows on from a free workshop Ms Lightbourne did this month to help people decide what they really want out of life.

It provides accountability and structure to help people to break through the barriers in their life.

“Structure beats out will power every time,” Ms Lightbourne said. “When we create systems we can make a true and sustained change.”

It also provides tools and resources to help participants to stay motivated, accountable and on track to fulfil their goals

Later this year, Ms Lightbourne will also launch a money mindset programme aimed specifically at entrepreneurs.

She is offering these sessions as a group programme, to make coaching affordable to a wider range of people.

“Executive clients will pay a lot of money to have someone coach them, but the average person is not willing to invest that kind of money in themself,” she said. “And when you create a group there is the added benefit of different perspectives and a sense of belonging.”

Ms Lightbourne said people usually have three excuses for not achieving their goals: they don’t have the time, it is too hard or they cannot afford it.

Curating Me shows them how to make the time, generate the money and shift their mindset so they can get things done.

Orientation for the programme begins on February 1. The programme kicks off on February 8. Sessions will be on Zoom on Wednesday mornings from 8am to 9am, and are available to people in Bermuda and overseas.

The cost is $77 a month. Participants who pay for the entire programme by January 31 get one month free.
