To show my gratitude for your support throughout 2013, I have five gifts planned for you over the next five days!  There are no outside sponsors or companies associated with these gifts. They are simply from me, to you.


To kick off the first annual Week of Giving I am giving away one year-long mentorship!

I believe that mentorships are powerful and can really help people take their lives to the next level.

In 2014, I would like to mentor a reader to help her design her life with intention. I will have hour-long, monthly calls with this mentee and help her to uncover her true intentions for her life and overcome the resistance she faces when making her dreams come true.

My hope is that by providing my insight, encouragement, and support, this mentee will breakthrough in many ways she never thought possible.

(This will not be a business mentorship, it will focus on all aspects of life. Career situation is irrelevant to this mentorship.)

I am looking for a mentee who is serious about taking her habits (and life) to the next level. Proactivity and willingness to do the work are key.


How to Apply


If you would like to apply for this mentorship, please send an email to jess@with-intention.com about why you would like this mentorship opportunity with me by Saturday, December, 21st.

Please note: 500 words or less, subject line: 2014 MENTORSHIP.

I will select the 2014 mentee and email all mentorship applicants about my decision on January 2nd, 2014.


If you think this mentorship would help you take things to the next level, I hope you reach out!

    This is a very exciting opportunity Jess! I’ll be writing my submission over the next few days.

    This is such a wonderful and thoughtful thing to give. I will definitely be sending a submission as well.

  3. Raquel Running

    So excited to write my submission! I had a feeling 2014 was going to be “my year”- here’s hoping!

  4. Kimberly Anne

    This is such a great way to give back, Jess! You always have such great content here. I can only imagine the advice you are able to give one on one. My submission should be in your inbox now. 🙂 Happy holidays!

    Hi Jane. That’s great to hear. Yes, you can talk about your business if it is relevant, but I do want to stress (to everyone) that this is not a biz mentorship. IE: I don’t want to spend my mentorship time talking about how to make more money, market, etc. It will be on living with intention and how career relates in that way, but not on growing a biz in particular. I hope this is understandable. : )

    This is a fantastic idea; I’m really into gifting experiences in lieu of things. I hope to hear about how this works out, even if I’m not picked. Happy reading!

    1. Jess Lively

      Aw, that’s awesome to hear, Alyson! I also hope you stick around for the other experience gifts later this week… ; )

    What a beautiful and inspiring gift, Jess! Thank you for offering us something so generous. I, too, like one of the commenters below, appreciate your thoughtful, intentional search for a mentee, as opposed to picking someone via random giveaway. I plan to email you within the next few days! =)

    1. Jess Lively

      That is great to hear, Yasmine!

      I’m also happy to hear you are thankful for the application process, too. Since I will be working with this person so much, I would never want to leave that up to chance. : )
