After years of being asked, ‘how did you do it’ or ‘what’s your best small business advice’, I’ve decided it is finally time for me to spill all my secrets and connect with you to help you transform your business into a thriving one, lead by you, the boss babe. I am offering two unique, intensive mentorship and mastermind programs. Thinking you’re the perfect fit, keep scrolling and let’s find out!

Applications for Fall 2019 have now closed. Applications are being accepted for 2020 waitlist.

Application and interview required for submission and approval to participate in Babes to Bosses programs.
12-Week MasterMind is open to five participants and One-On-One Mentorship is open to three participants.


My name is Jess and I am one half of
The Modern Bride, or TMB to you babes!

I started TMB in 2013 after a pretty significant period of not knowing what I wanted to do. I was working full-time as a General Manager at a pub and feeling completely directionless. The only thing I knew was that I was a hard worker and I loved to travel. That’s it...and, well that is not much to go on. 

So, I took a leap and invested in myself

I invested a small amount of money in an event planning course. I had no idea what to expect but I had to start somewhere, it was at least a step in some kind of direction.

and then I took a series of “scary” leaps

that looked like this;

  • investing in a space

  • working two full-time jobs

  • overcoming a failed partnership and losing a relationship

  • financial strain

  • isolation

  • finding the ideal partnership

  • hustling my butt off

  • constantly learning and investing in myself

Fast forward to today nearly six years later and TMB is no longer the shop I arrive at after working 40 hours at the other job that supports it. TMB is the full-time job for six passionate women and five amazing part-timers!

The business partnership that was formed was with Donna, my brilliant and meticulous mother, and is thriving. We are constantly cultivating new heights with TMB.

I no longer pull those insane hours, or my hair out. I have time for my partner, my dogs, travel and my family, all of the things that make my life worth living.


What hasn’t changed is my drive, ambition and enthusiasm for building something we can be proud of. For making my own rules, my own hours and choosing the direction that I want to go.

I am always learning and still falling on my face but with six years of trail, error and so much hard earned success I am ready to open this new chapter and share what I’ve learned! There is so much I wish I had known before I started and so many road blocks I could have avoided if I had not felt alone in this crazy journey called entrepreneurship!

Somewhere along this journey we transformed from babes and became bosses!

I have been working for myself for six years now, and if I am being completely honest, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I am anxious to get to know YOUR business, YOUR ideas, YOUR side hustle or YOUR mountains that you just can’t seem to get over. I can’t wait to hear your stories, your journey and what makes your project or product unique. I can’t wait to share my story in the hopes that you can propel yourself forward and hopefully skip over some of the harder, more painful steps. I can’t wait to let you know that you are not the only one out there burning that path to make a name and a life for yourself. I can’t wait to tell you that the leap you are taking is so going to pay off and that you and your business are capable of so much more than you know.

Mostly, I just can’t wait!

After watching The Modern Bride from the curtains for quite some time, I’m so glad I made the investment to be mentored by Jess and Donna in Guelph. From past experience, learning directly from people who have built a successful business has always proven to be the “fastest” way to growth. Jess and Donna leaped me over many puddles which I’m sure I would have fallen victim to had I not sought out mentorship. They also showed me the inner workings of what it took to run a successful business such as TMB which allowed me to better forecast the navigation of my own growth. If you are on the fence, wondering if mentorship with Bosses to Babes is right for you, I strongly suggest to make the leap! You will be so glad you did!

You’re the girl trying to take your side hustle to the next level, but keep bumping into overwhelming road blocks like: 

  • Where and how do I even start with turning my side hustle into a full-time job as an entrepreneur?

  • Can I really do this? Physically, mentally, emotionally? 

  • How exactly do I become my own boss/accountant/HR team?

  • How do I hire a team or when will I know when to hire a team?

  • How do I even create my own brand let alone market my business?

  • How do I navigate and combat the saturation in my field?

You want to take the plunge; you know you have a great business idea, but you need to know the ropes of how to navigate starting your own business and setting your business up for success from someone who has actually done it!
