ALWAYS LEARNING + ALWAYS GROWING

Three Things You Need to Know About Jess Weiner (that's me!)



Hi! I'm so glad that you're here!


For those of you that don't know me all that well, I want to introduce myself:


I’m a cultural expert + creative on a mission to help people feel seen, heard, and understood!⁠


⁠⁠I’ve spent over 26 years researching and educating on cultural trends and I take that knowledge and work with the world’s biggest brands to help them become more inclusive and culturally fluent. ⁠⁠


I also teach a series of online courses called The Good Life, which is all about designing a life you LOVE on your own terms.⁠⁠


1. I've had a lifelong passion for helping people feel seen, heard, and understood.


I can remember feeling that passion as young as 12, because I really wanted to be seen. Although, I really do wish someone would have warned me against these waterfall bangs...

But it makes sense, it's human to wanna be seen. And when we see ourselves represented in the media, when we're supported by our community, this is what helps us feel like we belong.


2. Writing and teaching are in my DNA.


My grandma, my grandpa, my mom, my cousins, everybody is a teacher and an educator. I wrote my first book when I was nine. It was a romance novel...

No for real, I wrote my first romance novel when I was 9.

And I started my career writing plays for kids. I tackled issues from body image to bullying. So now, whether I'm educating students in my Good Life courses, or educating my clients, I get real joy from writing and from teaching.


3. I've made a career out of doing things I love.


I love making change, which is why I work with the world's largest brands to help change the way we're all represented in media, marketing, and advertising.


I love learning together, which is why I created a series of courses on personal and professional development called The Good Life.

And I love expressing myself creatively. So whether I'm hosting a podcast or writing a book or speaking to thousands of people around the world, it's so important to me that I'm creative in everything that I do.


So welcome, take a peek around. I'm so glad you're here!


PS: I'm working on a new book!

At the beginning of my publishing journey, I wrote almost exclusively about body image and self-confidence. Now, I'm working on a NEW book that will be a culmination of so many experiences + life lessons, helping me to live a Good Life.


You also deserve to live a Good Life.
