How this book differs from other books on the market: This book is written from my personal experience and the lessons I learned as I tried to figure out how to live a purposeful life after graduating from college. It's not based on theory; it is drawn directly from the lessons I learned and the very same ones I have seen countless friends work through.
This book is geared toward young adults trying to find their way. There are other books on purpose on the market, but I couldn't find any written specifically toward young adults when I was finishing college and stepping out into the "real world." Ready, Set...Now What? aims to fill that gap by providing encouragement, advice, and anecdotes for all the questions young adults have when embarking on their own adventures into the independent life the world has to offer after school ends.
"Ready, Set... Now What? speaks to the hearts of young adults and beyond as they embark on the next leg of their journeys - the unknown. The book resonates with everyone who may struggle with wondering about their real purpose. It hits home with real-life stories and relatable situations, and affirms the deeper meaning of our lives. It helps to refocus the questions from being centered on "the job," and instead zeroes in on passion, and helps those searching to realign their focus. Perfect for anyone looking for encouragement and guidance in the steps that lead to a fulfilling life while navigating the difficult decisions that the world can quickly spin."
By buying Ready, Set...Now What?, you will get everything you need to make purposeful living practical for your life.
By reading this book, you will reframe your identity, discover your personal strengths and gifts, learn how to overcome obstacles, lean into the unique way you were made, make decisions, and rethink your understanding of work. At the end, you'll be able to put it all together to live your own intentional, purposeful life!
"This book has changed the way I define my purpose and my worth. Supporting Scripture helps me see whose opinion truly matters in this world."
"Uncertain? Frustrated? Scared? Stuck? You're not alone! Jessie helps her readers take an honest look at where they are in life and challenges them to start thinking about where they want to be. In Ready, Set...Now What? she navigates through topics such as passions, purposes, and values, just to name a few-- for a practical and fun process of gaining clarity in your personal life journey."
As the first-born child, Jessie was the first person in her immediate family to graduate from college, where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in just three years.
Jessie has always had a deep passion for writing, from short fiction stories (which she illustrated herself) as a child to research and persuasive papers in high school and her thesis in college.
As a Type-A, driven person, she has always looked for ways to excel, which became difficult once she finished school and had no clear guidelines for life on the other side of her cap and gown.
She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with a degree in Communication, where she honed her skills and began to see how life is about more than just what you do for a living.
Her first book, Ready, Set…Now What? is the product of her search for identity, passion, and purpose after graduation.
Jessie is living proof that purpose and meaning can be found in life, and that they don’t always have to fit within the context of a nine-to-five job. She is a program manager for the maintenance side of a display fixture company by day, but she doesn’t let that define her. She finds her purpose in using her gifts to love and serve those around her—through service, relationships, and through her writing.
She lives in the suburbs of Minneapolis, MN with her sister, where they enjoy decorating their new-to-them home and doing little house projects. She’s also involved with the hospitality ministry and a community group with Clarity Church, a local start-up church that captured her heart.
When she’s not writing, you can find her cooking up some new recipes in the kitchen (inevitably making a huge mess), watching a show on Netflix (lazy Sundays, anyone?), hanging out with her friends or family (they're the best!), or curled up on the couch with a mug of tea (yum!) and a big book (the best way to unwind, hands down).
She regularly writes about grace, identity, love, purpose, growth, and life over on her blog at notesfromjessie.com.
Ready, Set…Now What? is her first book, but she plans to write more!

"I wish I could have read this book as an 18-year-old. This book brings freedom, encouragement, guidance, and wisdom to any person in transition or feeling lost on what their purpose is."
"I really enjoyed this book which is full of WISDOM and encouragement! I can't wait for the author to write more, even just reading it again is nourishing to my soul!"
Ready, Set...Now What? was written with young men and women in mind-- men and women who are trying to figure out who they are, what they're here for, and how to live a life that matters. It's written from a Christian faith-based perspective, but is applicable to people of all faiths and backgrounds.
Ready, Set...Now What? covers the topics of identity, value, gifts and talents, personality, making decisions, fear, doubt, comparison, big-picture purpose, and work.
Yes! You can read an ebook on your phone, tablet, or computer even if you don't have an e-reader.
