Being Heard Episode 7: Jessica Rose Willliams – Finding Your Voice, Call-Out Culture, Accepting Discomfort

This week on Being Heard, I’m joined by Jessica Rose Williams. Jessica is a talented writer, photographer and podcaster. After years of feeling deeply unfulfilled in job at the NHS, she took the monumental decision to simplify her life.

“Failure isn’t as scary as I thought it was going to be. But it is inevitable, you’re going to fail. You’re going to mess up. You’re going to upset people. Not everyone is going to agree with you. You’re going to have feel like you’re in a bit of a spotlight, which is incredibly uncomfortable for an introvert. But do you know what? It passes. That feeling of discomfort passes. And from that I actually feel like a stronger, more confident person.”

Decluttering her wardrobe was just the beginning. Jessica now lives a more intentional life in the countryside, saying no to the things that don’t add value and as she says on her blog — “It changed everything for the better, and I wouldn’t go back“.

Jessica has written for 91 magazine, Project Calm and Cosmopolitan as well as her own regular blog about living with less, capsule wardrobes and the lessons she’s learned along the way to discovering her creativity.

One of Jessica’s latest projects is The Little Chapters, a podcast she started with her friend Kayte Ferris where we can listen in to their open conversations on topics ranging from Self-employment to ‘Woo‘.
