The phrase Just Get Started can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people but the overarching premise is that you have one life to live so why not make the most of it. Forget the past, whatever happened has happened. Start focusing on the future and where you want to take your life. We all know that being happy is what we all strive for but instead of trying to achieve small moments of happiness why not focus on achieving lifelong fulfillment. Not only will you be a better person but your relationships and career will be positively impacted as well. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to take the “leap of faith” and decide that you want more out of your life than you ever imagined you could have before. But, you have to take the first step. So, what’s holding you back? Just Get Started!…

Her mission is to help educators finally make their worth by breaking the classroom glass ceiling and building their online businesses, using their teaching resources and expertise.

Kayse started her online teacher business about a decade ago, selling her resources online. Her goal was to pay her Netflix bill. Within a few years, she replaced her teaching salary and left the classroom to become an online business coach for teachers. She teaches educators through the weekly CEO Teacher® Podcast (with over one million downloads) and inside of the CEO Teacher® Membership. She coaches thousands of teachers through starting, growing, and scaling their businesses – starting as a side hustle with the potential to leave the traditional classroom to pursue a more flexible, balanced life where they own their salary, schedule, and sanity.

When she’s not coaching teachers, you can find Kayse at her kids’ sports games, in the CrossFit gym, or at the beach! She believes there is room for everyone on the online business playground and that the best is yet to come.

About Lauren:

Lauren Sisler is a two-time Emmy award-winning sports broadcaster who joined ESPN and SEC Network in 2016 as a sideline reporter for both college football and gymnastics.

As a sportscaster and former collegiate gymnast, Lauren is passionate about sports, but even more passionate about telling the stories of the coaches, athletes, and fans who make it more than a game.
Her life was not always defined by victories. In 2003 as a freshman at Rutgers University, tragedy struck her world when she unexpectedly lost both parents within hours of each other to their concealed battle with prescription drug addiction. On her journey through grief, Lauren bravely emerged from the shadows of shame, embraced her story, and found hope again.

“I carried that shame until I finally realized I wouldn’t let the pain I harbored define me, just like it didn’t define my parents.”

Lauren realized that embracing her story and making peace with it had the power to heal, and she could inspire others to do the same.

“Your story is significant. Learn to love it, then do something with it.”

About Jesi:

Jesi Stracham (straw-ham) is a wheelchair athlete on a mission to inspire the world to live life to its fullest.

In January 2015, Jesi was the passenger on a motorcycle when it collided with a car. She woke up a week later in an intensive care unit without the use of her legs secondary to a spinal cord injury. Instead of accepting disability as her reality, In the face of adversity, she has used her disability as a platform to reach the world. In the years since her injury, Jesi has been able to achieve more than she had previously dreamed possible. To name just a few accomplishments, she has developed the first fitness application created by wheelchair users for wheelchair users and founded a non-profit called Wheel With Me Foundation that aims to serve the independence of wheelchair users. She has been featured in Woman’s Day Magazine, the Today Show, GMA3, Shape.com, Yahoo.com, fox8, and WCNC.

Jesi believes the importance of working to achieve personal excellence is crucial to anyone’s success, happiness, and mental well-being, regardless of their ability. With the help of various influences, Jesi has developed a system that has allowed her to live a life she previously didn’t believe was possible. Jesi is a “life-support” coach who helps individuals reach their dreams and fullest potential. Her book Power In The Roll will be available later this year.
