Confidence, Self-discovery and Overcoming Trauma with Jessica Dumas

Embracing change, engaging in inner work, and sustaining consistent effort are key to personal growth, fostering self-discovery and confidence over time. This is what Jessica’s journey teaches us.

Jessica’s coaching program focuses on empowering individuals, especially women, to develop confidence and effective speaking skills. She provides practical tools for crafting compelling talks and pitching ideas confidently. 

She encourages women to reclaim visibility and authenticity in public spaces, drawing from her own journey of personal growth. Her experience of overcoming trauma through spiritual exploration and inner work underscores the transformative power of resilience and faith. 

Here’s the scoop on the lessons and tips from her life, and career, and how she motivates others, especially women, to embrace their voices and overcome personal challenges.

Overcoming Trauma


Acknowledging the impact of trauma is important. That means understanding how those experiences have shaped your life, emotions, and even your sense of purpose. This understanding can be a starting point for healing and overcoming trauma.

Exploring spirituality can provide solace and insights during times of grief and trauma. It involves seeking meaning beyond the tangible and connecting with a higher purpose or source of strength, which can be instrumental in the healing process.

Building Confidence


Cultivate Self-Love: Prioritize your well-being, acknowledge your inherent worth, and treat yourself with compassion. This practice builds a strong foundation for confidence.

Practice Consistency: Consistent practices such as journaling, meditation, or affirmations contribute to personal growth by fostering self-awareness and reinforcing positive beliefs. Sticking with these activities builds your inner strength over time.

Seek Support: Engage with counselors, mentors, or coaches to get valuable guidance and perspective on personal development. When you reach out for support, you’re giving yourself the opportunity to process your emotions, learn new skills, and get that extra boost of encouragement you need. All of these things add up to one powerful outcome: building confidence.

Public Speaking


Speaker Preparation: Improve your skills in writing, pitching, and negotiating speaking gigs. When you dive into these areas, you’re not just becoming a better speaker – you’re also building up your self-assurance.

Overcome Fear: Gradually exposing yourself to speaking opportunities helps overcome the fear of public speaking. By facing fears in manageable steps and learning from each experience, confidence in one’s speaking abilities grows.

Use Your Voice: Embrace the unique value that you bring to the table. When you let your voice be heard, you’re not just advocating for yourself – you’re also paving the way for others to do the same. You’re showing others that their voices matter too, and that’s how real change happens.

Personal Growth


Embrace Change: Every time you embrace change, you’re opening yourself up to new experiences and opportunities. It’s like giving yourself permission to constantly evolve and explore. That’s where you find those hidden gems – those new interests and aspirations you never even knew you had.

Inner Work: Take a closer look at your own experiences, values, and beliefs. This introspection fosters self-discovery and a deeper understanding of oneself. You become more in tune with who you truly are.

Motherhood and Identity


Being a mom and working on your own passions – can be a real challenge. 

Believe in yourself. Believe that you can be an amazing mom while also pursuing the things that light you up inside. Recognize that your own fulfillment matters just as much as your responsibilities as a parent. When you embrace both sides of who you are, that’s when you really start to find your sense of purpose and identity. Always, take a moment to acknowledge your achievements, no matter how big or small they may seem.

Jessica’s story is a reminder that no matter what challenges we face, we have the power to transform our lives and inspire others along the way. If you’re looking to boost your confidence or find your voice, I hope Jessica’s insights resonate with you as much as they did with me.

Your voice matters, and your journey is worthy of celebration. Listen to the full podcast episode here.
