Hey There! I’m Jilleysue and most days you can find me in my back yard playing with my herd of mini doxies, binge watching HGTV, diving into Personal Development and Business training or hiding in the corner devouring the the Rae Dunn Jar of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. ( I really do only buy them to look cute in the jar, honest).
I’m obsessed with the color pink, social media, home decor and I have kinda of a little potty mouth. (Just keepin it real)
I happily live with my best friend and I am the mommma to 6 incredible fur babies. 4 doxies, 1 yorkie and a our attack cat.
I’m the co-founder of The Brand Boss Girls, creator of this kick ass business & lifestyle blog, where I get to be raw and real and show women coach women how they can successfully run their business from their phone on top of running my own Direct Sales business. Yes! I still run my very own business because I feel it is important to show women that the strategies and motivation I share are exactly what I use in my own business and that they work!
My passion is to help other women feel powerful, confident and to feel like they are enough. I want them to never believe that they can’t do anything, to go after the life they want, the life they deserve! Why?
Well, I’m about to share what was once upon a time, skeletons in my closet.
I help women create their own damn money because once upon a time, I had no clue what I deserved. I sat idol in a toxic, abusive relationship watching the person who was once my best friend, slip slowly away day after day to alcohol.
Nice house, fancy cars, trips, & a vacation house, but I was truly empty on the inside. I felt trapped. I woke up every day and allowed our life to only be about him. In 2006, I decided to join a direct sales business, just as hobby to maybe find a friend or two of my own. I dabbled in a few. Failed at many and then……..
In 2009, my current company found me. This new opportunity was going to be my EXIT strategy from that life!
Not being able to go to work all the time because of a home in disarray, that extra income carried me. The relationships I built gave me the courage to finally get out in 2013. My business went into full affect. It was the scariest thing I had ever done. I had always asked for permission for everything and I was giving up comfort in order to start a new life, a different life, one where I didn’t know what to expect.
Believing I Could Run My Business Online
Being a Social Media Strategist at my full time job, was a blessing, although I knew never it at the time.
I wanted to run my business from anywhere. I found Kim Garst (One of Forbe’s Top 20 Social Media experts) and started talking to her on Twitter. We immediately connected and things began falling into place. She took me under her wing and taught me everything she knew.
Learning how to build relationships online and staying consistent was not easy. There was a huge learning curve. It took me 2 years, along with still maintaining my full time job to really get the hang of things, but once I found my strategy and got committed to making it work, I saw a huge shift in my business.
- I built not one but two top level network marketing businesses at the same time. (not something I suggest but like I said before, I was learning)
- I started having virtual presentations and opportunity nights which were unheard of back then.
- I built an online team training page that was duplicatable and I didn’t have to do sit down training one at a time anymore.
- I started to become an influencer in the online and personal branding space which caused people to reach out to me to find out how I was doing everything.
In 2014 when the company I worked for closed down and I got a 2 days notice so yeah you could say that my income kept me from being homeless. Beyond that, the decision to take a risk and join “one of those companies” probably saved my life.
I vowed to never be in that position again and to make it a goal to help as many women as I could.
From 2007 to now, it has been a crazy roller coaster ride. I am so blessed and grateful to have gotten thru some of my darkest days. I have figured out my purpose and I have complete time freedom.
Life has hit and I have had to change my schedule at the drop of a hat, but this time without having to ask for permission.
I still work hard but only because I absolutely love what I do more than anything and I wouldn’t trade the ups & downs of owning my business for anything. I promoted to the TOP LEVEL of my company and now I determine how I spend the 24 hours in a day. I determine my paycheck. I determine how fast it grows and I determine how many people I want to bless with the same opportunity.
I get to wake up to my best friend and my puppies and look outside at my gorgeous back yard instead of the walls of a cubicle.
I am excited to travel more. I have earned countless trips with my company and most recently, I earned an all expenses paid cruise on the largest cruise ship in the world to the Mediterranean with my best friends. Oh and did I mention, I am currently working on a trip to New Zealand or Switzerland! I don’t remember my boss ever giving me that type of incentive.
I am in the top 1% of my company and I am able to use my story to inspire more women to believe in themselves and realize they have something amazing to offer.
It is so amazing to have made my passion and the story of my adversity my business. I get excited every day to know that just one person may message me and say, “You changed my life.”

I mentioned my purpose up above. It is now time to pass on what I received. It is to give you hope, a chance, and teach what I what I have learned. Let me show you what I see in you that you may not see. Someone did that for me once and I vowed to return the favor.
