[restrict paid=”true”]

[00:01:12.20] – Jessie DaSilva

I am so ready.

[00:01:13.79] – Gresham Harkless

Awesome. Let's do it. So I wanted to rewind the clock a little bit and kinda start, I guess, kinda from the beginning and hear about your CEO story. We'll let you get started with the business.

[00:01:23.20] – Jessie DaSilva

Well, you know, I had a career in law before all of this, and I had tried like I like to say I tried just about every corner of law practice there is. You know, I started with a private firm. I went into the government in the state of Florida. I came up here. I was a legal journalist for a while and then I worked for a nonprofit and, you know, none of them really seemed to stick or seem to be, like, exactly what I wanted. And all along that time, I had been doing mentorship programs. As a mentor. I was always helping people get jobs, and start businesses. I was just the person everyone came to for advice, friends, family, friends of friends. And after a while, it clicked.

I said, you know what? I think people might pay me to do this. The stuff that I'm giving away for free, I think I could charge. So I started my business while I was in my last position. To be totally honest, I was, asked to resign because as I became more aligned with my business, I kinda lost my passion for my nine-to-five work, and it was frankly very obvious. So it was definitely a mercy firing and, went full-time into my business, and the rest is history as they say. But it's been given it's given me that sense of freedom that I really wanted and the ability to follow my creativity and all the things that I love.

[00:02:47.50] – Gresham Harkless

Yeah. Absolutely. And I definitely find and I love, you know, especially how, you know, you've I always say sometimes you go through things in life to direct you to where you wanna be. And on an even deeper level for you, it's been able to kinda, sounds like, redirect you into where, you know, your, your true, you know, passion, it truly is. But I think you've taken even a step further because you've been able to kinda help out so many other people, sounds like, do some of the same things.

[00:03:11.80] – Jessie DaSilva

Totally. I mean, that's that's, like, everything I love to do is I honestly serve. So I give away lots of free info Mhmm. For anyone who follows me, I just know that working with me is always gonna be better than, like, them like, people trying to work based on the free info that I give. So I feel like my place in the world is to just, like, help as many people shift into alignment as possible.

[00:03:36.00] – Gresham Harkless

Yes. Absolutely. And, I know, I kinda touched on it when I read your bio, and, of course, when you introduced, you know, everything that you do and how you came to it, could you take us through exactly that alignment piece and how exactly you're working with your clients to help find it?

[00:03:49.80] – Jessie DaSilva

Sure. So along the way, I had had my own, like, spiritual journey. Mhmm. And while that was happening, I realized that I got back in touch with a lot of skills that I'd had as a child and kind of suppressed because I was like, I don't wanna be the weird kid, so I'm not gonna continue doing these things and saying stuff that freaks out my elders and all my friends. But along the way, I just revisited these skills. I started seeing, like, lots of synchronicities in my life. You know, I'd have conversations with people. Then a few days later, somebody would say my words back to me who was, like, totally unrelated to the conversation. I was having these really wild dreams as well. Like, of course, nothing useful. No lottery numbers. But I'd have dreams and then things would happen. The same thing would happen a few weeks later.

It was just totally bizarre, and I said, you know, I gotta look into this and see what's going on. And I had found a few podcasts that gave me some clarity on, like, how to get grounded, how to tap into these things, what tools to use. And I started doing tarot readings and intuitive readings for friends and people I had met and realized, oh, wow. This is an actual skill that I have. And since I basically tapped into it, now it's off the chain. It's, like, very, it's something that I bring to all of my clients. Like, I always say, like, if I'm coaching, I'm channelling. It's just how it works. But I'm able to tap into people's energies and really a lot of their insecurities. So because I'm able to do that, I'm able to give them really specific targeted advice that's going to help them uplevel their business, uplevel their career, whatever it is, and really speak to the heart of the matter that in a way that they need to hear it.

[00:05:40.00] – Gresham Harkless

Yeah. That's extremely powerful. And I think so many times as you said, it's funny. I'll say a lot of times when I'm trying to make decisions, sometimes tough decisions, I'll kinda rewind the clock back really, really far to my childhood because I think that's the time when you do things just because you're passionate about it because you love it because you're probably even called to do it. And I think as you said so many times, we get redirected and pushed towards so many different other paths because they're the right path or they're the accepted path, but you never kind of I guess you can you can't fully quiet it, but you just maybe it gets harder to hear. So sometimes you need to have that conversation with somebody outside to be able to kinda hear the things that you know, but you maybe don't wanna pursue and maybe have some thoughts related to that.

[00:06:21.10] – Jessie DaSilva

Oh my god. Yeah. It's so funny because I tell people all the time, like, I can't tell you what to do with your life. Mhmm. Only you can tell you what to do with your life, but I can help you uncover it. Like that, I can help you get back in touch with what you're, like, intuitively designed to do and what it is that will light your heart up. But I say that if you do what you love, the money will always follow. You just really have to be shamelessly devoted to yourself and to your life and, you know, not listen to the insecurities and the projections of other people because they don't have to live your life. They don't have to live with your decisions. And another thing I tell clients all the time is, you know, your parent if the thing you wanna do that your parents tell you is not an appropriate career if it were to take off, they would still brag about you. So you might as well do it.

[00:07:12.89] – Gresham Harkless

Yes. That's very true. And just as you said, a lot of times when you are in that alignment, you have that synchronicity as you spoke to as well too, then things will start to take off because you're pretty much operating in your flow and your zone of genius, I like to say a lot of times too.

[00:07:26.30] – Jessie DaSilva

Yeah. You can't you can't reverse engineer it. Like, people try to come at it with what's needed in the world. Like, what do people want to see? What do people wanna hear? What's gonna make me money? What's gonna get me seen? And, really, you have to go at it from what do I want to say? Like, what do I wanna talk about? What do I want to do with my life, and what makes me happy? And the fascinating thing is, like, you can always connect with money from that place because we live in a digital economy now. Everything's online. And if the first sale on eBay can be a broken laser pointer, then you can bring anything. Like, people will buy anything online. It's just a matter of connecting with your unique group of people in your audience.

[00:08:13.19] – Gresham Harkless

Yeah. Often, it's crazy because it's so often when you do kinda, you know, solve that solves that, I  don't wanna say problem, but you provide what you're looking for, like, you're actually being that voice, then you start to get that tribe around you because not only were you looking for, there are so many other people that were looking for it, as well too. So I love how you provide clarity in the way that people can kinda execute on that. So, I wanted to ask you now for what I call your secret sauce, and it could be for yourself or your business. But what do you feel kinda sets you apart and makes you unique?

[00:08:42.39] – Jessie DaSilva

Oh, I got I mean, I gotta say that it's my psychic gifts, especially in working in Washington, DC. You know, people would be surprised to hear that this is something I do in this city, but there's an audience here, and there's a craving for something that's a little special, a little just a little otherworldly. I think people really enjoy it. And they're, of course, they're always sceptical. I mean, I'm a former lawyer, a former journalist. Literally, the two most sceptical groups I could be, like, talking to. And you know, when I had first started, I was like, you know, all my friends are gonna think I'm batshit insane if I come out and say that I'm a psychic and I offer readings on top of life coaching. But what's been fascinating is it's been a really receptive audience, and I honestly don't care if people don't like it or not. Like, those aren't my people. But there's definitely a thirst for it in this area, I think because it's such an analytical and strategic city to be living in. It's nice to be or, like, people find it almost comforting in a way to be like, oh, no. She just really what it is is that she just gets me as a person at, like, a really foundational level.

[00:09:53.20] – Gresham Harkless

And that makes sense, Jesse. And it's so funny that you say that because I almost feel like it's not as if you're saying, this person should do a, b, c, or d, or f, or g. It's largely because the answers that you're providing are usually within them. So it's not as if, you know, I guess, the solutions or the perspective that you have is wrong because you're really looking individually at each person, it sounds like.

[00:10:13.89] – Jessie DaSilva

Absolutely. I always say it's the difference between, like, a diagnosis and a treatment plan. So you can have multiple necessary work for every single person who has that diagnosis. Everyone needs their own individual treatment plan, and that's gonna vary according to the individual.

[00:10:37.39] – Gresham Harkless

Yeah. And then that makes so much sense. So that's why it's awesome that you provide it and, of course, provide it here in the DC area, which is definitely, needed as you said as well. So I wanted to, switch gears a little bit, and I wanted to ask you for what I call a CEO hack. So this could be like an app, a book, or a habit that you have, but what's something that makes you more effective and efficient?

[00:10:57.20] – Jessie DaSilva

This is gonna sound out there, but, I mean, I already said I'm a psychic, so who cares at this point? But it's this, it's called human design. It's based on a multidimensional, like, astrological profile, but it's considered it's more legitimate than other sources. And you'll actually it's starting to be used in companies a lot now. But at the most basic, you find out what your energy type is, and that tells you how to, like, function in the world. And then you find out what your internal authority is, and that helps you make decisions.

[00:11:34.00] – Gresham Harkless

I love that hack. So I wanted to ask you now for what I call a CEO nugget. So that could be like a word of wisdom or a piece of advice. Or if you were to hop into a time machine, what would you tell your younger business self?

[00:11:45.70] – Jessie DaSilva

I would say trust yourself. That's really it, that you can never be wrong. Even if you feel like you fail, even if you make a mistake, even if you run out of money. It's all part of the process that you need to experience in order to reach success.

[00:12:02.10] – Gresham Harkless

I definitely appreciate that. So I want to ask you now what I call, my absolute favorite question, which is the definition of what it means to be a CEO. And we're open to having different quote-unquote CEOs on this show. So, Jesse, what does being a CEO mean to you?

[00:12:15.10] – Jessie DaSilva

Being a CEO to me means freedom. It just means the freedom to follow my heart, to do whatever I am passionate about, and to know that I can always make money. I can always find my path. I can always change direction. I can move wherever I want. Like, it's just having that total complete freedom to follow my to follow whatever my intuition and my heart are telling me. Right now, it feels good as career coaching and business coaching. We'll see if that rings true in five years, but I know that no matter what, I'm gonna make the decisions that feel right for me.

[00:12:53.00] – Gresham Harkless

Yeah. And that's extremely powerful. I think that the word freedom is extremely powerful because I think at the heart of it, I think people who are really passionate and really in flow and in their authentic selves, it's all about the freedom to be who you are and to run your own race as I like to say because when you do that, you can't lose. And but if you feel like you're running somebody else's race or you're doing what's not in alignment, sometimes that's where, you know, you have the whatever the opposite of freedom would be, and you don't feel like you you're in that flow.

[00:13:20.79] – Jessie DaSilva

Stagnation. That's what I think the opposite of freedom would be. Rather than being stuck, it's really just, like, almost being lost.

[00:13:28.89] – Gresham Harkless

Yeah. And that's definitely somewhere where we don't wanna be. So I appreciate you for helping so many people, get out of that stagnation point that they might be in their lives. So, Jesse, I truly appreciate that definition. I appreciate your time even more. What I wanted to do is pass you the mic, so to speak, just to see if there's anything additional. You can let our readers and listeners know. And then, of course, how best they can get ahold of you, subscribe to the podcast, and hear about all the awesome things that you're working on.

[00:13:52.79] – Jessie DaSilva

Absolutely. So I would say that the main thing is that in order to, like, get into that flow, like, we've been talking about, it's really, like, two parts. The first one is working as if it all depends on you. And that doesn't mean burning out. It just means, like, really making sure that you're putting your heart into or even just in the flow of your environment, but allowing yourself to trust that things will work out when it's time to. As long as you have those two things, you're on the right path. And you can follow me on Instagram at j underscore da Silva. That's d an as in apple.

[00:15:00.00] – Gresham Harkless

Awesome. Thank you so much. Again, Jesse. We will have the links and information in the show notes, but I definitely appreciate the reminder of those two things. I think it's something that obviously you wanna know, you know when you're trying to get out of that stagnation, but I think it's something you can always check on a regular, you know, basis just to make sure you're continuing to be in alignment. So I definitely appreciate those two reminders, and I hope you have a phenomenal rest of the day.
