HI I'M JESS ekstrom!

My first public speaking gig was for a slice of pizza and now I'm making 7-figures a year as a thought leader, keynote speaker, and author.

Everything I create is to help you tell & sell your story…so you can make a living and make a difference at the same time. Let me be straight with you – I’m not that perfectly filtered influencer on the internet that promises you the world and doesn’t follow through after that credit card is swiped.

My mission at Mic Drop Workshop is to guarantee you two things 👇

Enough about my story, let’s help you monetize your story by becoming a paid public speaker!

Mic Drop Workshop® helps women tell and sell their story as paid keynote speakers, motivational speakers, and published authors.
