Jacquie Somerville isn't your typical motivator, author, or speaker. A born storyteller and a self-titled "normalphobe," she probably will shock you and make you laugh. Jacquie impacts her audiences by drawing on a lifetime of challenging and rewarding experiences--a lifetime of pushing the envelope, taking big risks and challenging the status quo. She's been married a few times, immigrated twice, been fat, slim, broke, rich, and followed her gut to a life of excitement, adventure, passion and purpose. Jacquie's fearless approach to life and zeal for inspiring others to take action is grounded in a wonderfully diverse background, ranging from a successful career in corporate marketing and sales, to a degree in agriculture, to time in front of the camera as a main character on a reality TV show. An in-demand motivational guru, Jacquie has studied self-development in earnest for the past fifteen years, and has had the privilege of being mentored by some of the biggest names in the self-development world, including Brendon Burchard, Bob Proctor through his Matrixx program and Tony Robbins via Mastery University. Jacquie is also the CEO, personality, and creative force behind Jacquie Somerville Enterprises, LLC, a boutique self-development umbrella company for her keynote speech engagements, her banner "Be Your Own Soul Mate" online video program, her weekly "Jacquie Straight Up" inspirational video broadcast, as well as her books. Jacquie's first published book, My Fat Little Rule Book is a fun take on diet and exercise, while My Scandalous Little Rule Book is a definitive guide to risk-taking and embracing uncertainty. Jacquie was born in South Africa, immigrated to Canada alone in 1992, and now resides in Rancho Mirage, California. To find out more visit www.jacquiesomerville.com.
