Do you want to feel less stressed, happier, & more alive in your life and relationships?

Imagine what it would be like to…

  • Remain calm and focused in the midst of stressful news or developments that arise.

  • Energize yourself each morning with a positive, productive attitude for the day ahead in less than five minutes.

  • Transform negative fears and thoughts  that keep you stuck and unable to live the life you truly want.

  • Improve relationships with people you love and care about no matter how difficult they are, or where they stand on polarized issues.

  • Pull yourself out of negative, self-defeating spirals.

All this and more is possible with Appreciative Living!  

Hi – I’m Jackie Kelm. In 2000, I started wondering if a powerful process I was using in my work as a management consultant (called Appreciative Inquiry) could create the same kind of transformational change in our daily lives as it was in hundreds of organizations around the world—such as Verizon, the U.S. Navy, Hunter Douglas, and John Deere.

While my life looked fine on the surface, I was far from happy underneath. I struggled with self-defeating thoughts and other issues that left me feeling exhausted and hopeless at the end of the day. So I started testing the same powerful principles in my own life that had worked so well for companies and the results blew me away.

In fact, a National Joy Study I did showed that just 3 fast and easy AL exercises led 97% of participants to feel significantly happier in just 28 days … and they continued to feel that way six months later.

This work has transformed my life and the lives of others beyond anything I ever dreamed possible.

While my life still brings challenges, it is full of joy—and believe me, it didn’t use to be. I have close relationships with friends and family who think differently, I’m healthier and taking better care of myself, and building the business of my dreams. And I’d like to help you do the same.

But don’t just take my word for it…

"I just wanted to let you know how much my husband and I have enjoyed your mini-book... most mornings over breakfast we do our appreciation journal and talk about what we're grateful for. And we are catching ourselves when we're talking negatively and unappreciatively more frequently. We've had great results and life seems a lot brighter in spite of New England winter weather!"
