Meet Jessica Rasdall | Motivational Speaker, Best Selling Author, Podcast Host


The question is not, “Do you have a story?” The question is, “Will you OWN it?”

When Jessica Rasdall was a freshman in college, she made a life-altering decision that resulted in the death of her best friend. In an effort to raise awareness, cope with her guilt and keep her friend’s memory alive, she began sharing her story. Jessica spoke to over 15,000 young adults across the country before she was later sentenced to four years in prison. Upon being released from prison, she returned home to pick up the pieces and continued to share her message.

Today, Jessica is an Author, Motivational Speaker and Public Speaking Strategist for business owners. She helps her clients unearth their signature story, tap into their inner strength and evoke radical change. She believes that what most people consider to be their limitations are actually their greatest asset.

“By embracing our story, we ignite a small fire within us. It fills us with passion and allows us to
inspire those around us. The question is not, “do you have a story?” The question is, “Will you OWN it?”

Jessica has shared her story of turning her “mess into a message” for over thirteen and has been featured on major media outlets such as ABC's 20/20, Katie Couric, Seventeen Magazine, The Guardian, MTV’s Series Premiere of One Bad Choice and much more.
