Ready to meet the new you?

Get started today with my radically practical books, guides, courses, and more.

Note from Tess

Big changes can happen a little at a time, from wherever you are right now. That’s the radically practical idea behind all my work, and it’s why I designed my LIKE NOW and TRUE YOU series for young people. In these books, talks, and exercises, you’ll find simple, straightforward tactics to help you meet life’s big challenges with confidence and joy.

Like Now

A radically practical guide to liking your 20s

It’s a funny thing, but the best way to change your life is to start liking your life exactly as it is right now. Not the way it’ll be next week, next month, or in five years—like, NOW now. That’s why it’s the title of my book of truly simple writing exercises that helped my real life clients get centered and make the Really Big Changes—time after time.

Talks & Workshops

The pressures facing today’s workforce are more intense than ever. It’s important to learn how to develop your personal leadership style, navigate generational disconnect, and create a culture you can be proud of—whether you’re an experienced manager or just got promoted for the first time.

Keynotes and Workshop Ideas

Custom-design a workshop for your organization, or start with a keynote on one of the following topics:

Compassionate Culture

How to fight burnout and build a work environment that’s mindful, supportive, and inspiring for everyone on your team.

Millenial Mindset

It’s no secret that different generations hold different values, and that this can sometimes lead to tension at work. Here’s how to turn those differences into a conversation.

Leadership Lowdown

We’ll discuss what sets truly great leaders apart, and learn how to build a foundation for kind, confident communication between team members and leaders—from day one.

1:1 Sessions

If you prefer a one-on-one approach, I do accept new clients as my schedule permits. We’ll dig deep to find motivations and build a toolkit of techniques for fulfilling your goals. Let’s connect to find out more or sign up for your initial session.

Start your radically practical new life. (Like, NOW now.)

Young person who likes his life now

Take a Minute and Try this exercise with me, right now. Ready?

Grab a piece of paper and a pen. Set a timer for 5 minutes. Close your eyes and imagine that your biggest dream has JUST happened.

Focus on what you feel and where. Take another deep breath. Open your eyes.

What’s different? How do you feel now? Take a few moments to write down your thoughts and feelings. And then congratulate yourself—you’re one step closer to a better life.
