IN A NUTSHELL, THIS IS MY STORY
I’ve been immersing myself in the Personal Development world for over 15 years. This is nothing new to me. But what I didn’t realize is that during almost 11 of those 15 years, I also simultaneously lived in a prison of abuse. My abuser was very clever, as they often are, and this made recognizing the truths of my reality extremely difficult.
I felt confused. And depressed (which was not like me). I wondered how it could be possible that I had been through so many Personal Development courses, read so many books, become a master at my mind and my thoughts… and yet, I still couldn’t figure out how to simply… be happy?
I hired a coach and after working together for a bit, she told me that what I was experiencing was abuse. At that time in my life I couldn’t even fathom what the word ‘abuse’ meant. I literally put my hand up in the air during that phone call as I sat in my car alone on some dirt road in the middle of nowhere, as though to say “STOP.” And then I said ‘Mmmmmm, I think that’s a strong word. I’m a powerful, confident woman and I wouldn’t allow that in my life.’
I didn’t know the first THING about Domestic Violence. It took me a couple more months to really wrap my mind around everything, but my coach was right. I couldn’t believe that this was my life! That I was merely a puppet in someone else’s grand plan. And once I did fully wake up to the abuse, there was no turning back.
I bought a $20 non-smart burner phone (as I believed my iPhone had spyware on it), hid it in a bag of tampons, used it to make a plan to escape and then I executed the plan.
It was the hardest, most terrifying decision I ever made. But also, THE BEST.
What happened next was miraculous.
Everything I had been working on for 15 years finally started to manifest. All along, I held in my hands the tools to create the life I wanted, but I wasn’t “allowed” to create that life. I wasn’t allowed to be me. Or to make my own decisions.
And now I share my story with others, because unfortunately I am not unique. Most of us experience abuse and way-too-hard challenges (yes I realize there is a more proper way to say that but I don’t care). Point is, we all only get one shot at this life. And if we don’t take it by the reins right now, we are wasting precious time. I am here to help lighten the load and get as many humans as possible on the path toward safety, peace, happiness, love, adventure and true bliss.
Thank you for visiting and I hope we get the opportunity to work together in the near future.
If you need help, please reach out to my coach, Diana Iannarone. This woman saved my life.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PREVENTION TALKS:
I really wanted to thank you for your talk. I’ve always been embarrassed about my abuse and never wanted to talk openly about it, but your courageousness to speak up about yours helped me to see that I wasn’t the only one. All this time, I assumed it was only me and that it really was my fault that he did those things to me (like he always would say). It’s been one of those things I struggle with greatly and it makes me very self conscious and afraid people will judge me for what I let happen to me. I was a victim for six years and it still haunts me to this day. I feel like this is such a huge topic that gets pushed under the rug in high school because people assume that it only happens when you’re older. You really helped me to feel better about myself by speaking out. I’m very grateful that you came to speak with us. Thank you.
Summer’s talk on abundance and following your purpose was very uplifting. I don’t know how someone could be around her and not feel inspired. It’s apparent to me that she comes from an authentic place. You can tell she is walking the walk rather than just talking about it. She emanates a soft, but strong fiery quality that motivates you to look beyond what you think is possible. She also taught us practical tools for obtaining new clients and incorporated a guided meditation, which I found super helpful for integrating everything she taught us. I would definitely recommend attending a talk with Summer for anyone who wants to bust through barriers in their minds/lives and who might need a dose of the inspiring and very real medicine that she embodies.

Summer was a breath of fresh air! She spoke from a place of experience and motivated with genuine appreciation for life. Her combination of physical movement and group participation made for an incredibly uplifting experience. She has a way of putting things into perspective that allows others to envision windows of opportunity to change direction within their own lives.

If you are wondering if Summer Jessee is the right speaker for your event, let me tell you she is! Her speaking style makes you feel like you have known her forever. She is real, unfiltered, and shows her strength through raw vulnerability.
Her story of personal triumph touched me. I know if she was able to overcome her obstacles, I can overcome mine. Most importantly, I gleaned insight on how to value myself in my new business venture and how to avoid selling myself short.
As a mom of two, her message of self-care really resonated with me. I recognized myself in her. I realized I miss the vibrant, sexy woman I was just two short years ago before my youngest was born. It was freeing to admit this to myself. She has inspired me to reconnect with myself, to do the things I love to do more often, and to discover my sexy self again.

I had the most transformational weekend with Summer! She’s energetic, caring, and full of incredible wisdom and knowledge. She shared so much of herself. She spoke of self-care and why it’s so important to take care of ourselves after trauma. We talked about how to get to where we want to go both in our personal lives and in our business lives. We looked at our relationship with money and learned how our limiting beliefs are holding us back… and we redefined these beliefs.
One weekend wasn’t enough. I would love to take an entire course from Summer for six weeks! She is so relatable. Very compassionate and just so much fun. The time flew by and all I wanted was MORE. Her teaching style is very interactive – written exercises, outdoor pilates, rituals down by the water and so much more! I can’t wait to hear her speak again. She was completely amazing. Thank you so much Summer, from the bottom of my heart.

Summer’s unique stair-step approach in getting hired is a refreshing change to the usual sales pitch. It allows you to really connect on a deeper level with potential clients and be much more likely to get hired. She knows her worth and teaches you the importance of knowing yours. Her style is laid back and she presents information in an open and honest manner. I appreciate her fearless approach to life. This woman has Moxie!
