Career Coaching: Fear of Success, Ageism, & Making The Jump to Entrepreneurship with Jackie Janiec

Do you feel like you can do your job with your eyes closed? Are you a “lifer” - remaining at your job for years even though you feel unfulfilled? This is exactly how Jackie Janiec feels as she joins Kimberly in another career coaching segment of Your Next Move.

Tune in as Jackie chats about her career right now, what she actually wants out of a job, and the limiting stories holding her back from making her dream a reality. And be sure to lean in even closer as Kimberly guides her (and maybe even you!) to find what she needs to make her next move.


  • The “stories” holding Jackie back from making her next move
  • Overcoming ageism in the business world
  • “Do you believe that you can be what you create?”
  • Embracing fear and the courage to act in spite of
  • What is the support you need in order to thrive?
  • There is no real “either, or” - identify what YOU want


“I just feel very unfulfilled. It feels mundane. It's like I can do my work with my eyes closed. And while some people may look at my job and say, that seems great, you work with celebrities. It's still unfulfilling, - Jackie Janiec

“The crazy thing about jumping from a nine to five to entrepreneurship is that everyone’s journey is so different. And your risk tolerance level is also different. And it's how can you give yourself and create the plan that's going to make you feel comfortable in jumping. - Kimberly Brown
