What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx.

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxTenayaPaseo, where x = independently organized TED event.

Jackie Simmons

Removing the "Cloak of Invisibility" from her business skyrocketed Jackie Simmons from Secret to Success in just 7 months, BUT it didn’t start out that way.

For many years, it was like there was an elephant in the room of Jackie’s business. The “elephant” sat on her phone making sales calls a chore and focus a dream. Seeking help, Jackie started gathering certifications, the way some people gather seashells.

No matter how many personal and professional gurus she studied with, Jackie kept making the same self-sabotaging decisions.  

Saying “yes” to helping others and “no” to spending the time to actually grow and scale her own business kept Jackie in a never-ending loop of unstable income and overbooked calendars.
Permanently “taming” her inner elephant didn’t come as a result of a single strategy, technique, or mentor. It came when she stopped seeing her business as broken and started to accept every aspect of her business and her life as “good enough”, just the way it was.

“Ultimate Sales Mastery” is the system that took Jackie’s first book from concept, to published, to Amazon #1 best-seller in only 3 weeks and it’s what allows her clients to go beyond what they thought was possible and earn as much in one month as they had the entire year before. 

Now Jackie’s taking the lessons learned helping entrepreneurs sell themselves on themselves, into the teen world and it’s making a difference.

Teens are now helping people of all ages end the tide of suicide and people of all ages are helping teens do the same. 

Audiences grin, giggle, & get it, when Jackie guides them to tame their own inner elephants and walk their own paths from secret to selling themselves on success, whatever that means in the moment.

Dr. Bolliger’s unique methodology guides people on a path to physical, emotional and spiritual wellness, reminding them of their life’s choices and agency. 

“How you live your life is how you heal. The body knows how to heal. Our job is to learn how to live.”
People often limit their healing process, whether it’s from arthritis, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis by abdicating their power to their Diagnosis. The path to health means discovering what really needs healing, rewriting the stories that don’t serve us, honouring our body and reclaiming our path back to joy.”

Author of  “What Patients Don’t Say if Doctors Don’t Ask” , she is currently writing a book based on her LISTEN: The intelligent Healing System.
