Welcome, Jessica. Thanks so much for joining us.
Can you tell us what you do and how you came to be doing it?
By day I run a finance business with my husband but I’m really a writer and a photographer. I blog at jessicarosewilliams.com where I write about living a simpler more creative life, and all the benefits that come with that based on my own experiences. I also work with people 1:1 to help them simplify life and build capsule wardrobes.
I’d always wanted to start a blog but I didn’t have the confidence. Two years ago I made a big lifestyle change and started living a more intentional simpler life. I got rid of everything that didn’t add real value and it gave me the nudge I needed to chase my creative dreams. Getting rid of all the distractions in my life made me realise what really mattered to me and what direction I wanted to go in.
If you had one piece of advice or wisdom to pass on to your younger self, what would it be?
You are good enough just as you are, be kinder to yourself.
