Unapologetically Raw And Real!

That's My Superpower!


The real story of Jacqueline Wales

People who know me call me FEARLESS! And I've earned the title. 

Over several decades I've been challenged by self-doubt and the fear that I'm  not good enough. It led me down some very dark alleys that almost sabotaged my life.  The journey to find my way to a healthy existence was a long one, with over forty years invested in self-growth, and I'm still growing.

As a coach and trusted advisor to many highly accomplished people including  academics, entrepreneurs, scientists and corporate executives, i have helped them defeat self-doubt and resistance to change that stopped many from taking more risks and thus achieve more.

Clients describe me as candid, empathetic and down to earth—an insightful guide who genuinely cares about helping people grow. The term “unaplogetically raw and real” has been used more than once!

I have written extensively on self-awareness, published three books including The Fearless Factor, The Fearless Factor @ Work, and a novel, When The Crow Sings, and created three online programs Transformational Strategies for Success, From Chaos to Clarity and Leading With Trust

TEDx speaker on Unleashing the Power of Fear, a professionally trained singer, earned a black belt in Shotokan karate at 49, and took up Crossfit at the age of 63.

My biggest achievement is my family of four children, three grandchildren and 44 years of marriage.
