Imagine crafting a life with more of what matters and less of everything else. How good would that feel?! 🙌🏻
I get it. You're busy and somehow, the things that matter most to you always end up on the back burner, right?
Things like quality time with family, hobbies and passions you once enjoyed, going on adventures, learning new things and of course, self-care.
Whatever it is that matters most to you, I'm willing to bet that somehow, they're the first things to go when life gets busy...
But what if you had the clarity and confidence to change that?
"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony."—attributed to Mahatma Gandhi
Welcome to Values + Vision!
In this online course, you'll get crystal clear about what matters most, and then equally importantly, learn how to bring this vision to life (because knowing what matters isn't much good if you're not going to act on it!).
I'm passionate about this because I've been on the other side...
Hello there! My name's Jennifer and I'm the voice behind Simply + Fiercely, a community of women creating lives they love through simple and intentional living.
I'm passionate about what I do because for much of my adult life, I felt like I was stuck living on auto-pilot.
Life felt ... lacklustre, hollow, and sometimes even hopeless.
Fortunately, I "woke up" one day and decided that enough was enough.
I was done with settling for a life half-lived. I wanted something better for myself.
I committed to years of self-discovery and reflection, and I'm proud to say that the end result is I've transformed my life.
I'm now a conscious creator of a beautiful, messy life that I love—and the deep gratitude I feel for this gift is what motivates me to share my story.
I curated the lessons and tools that have helped me the most on my journey and the result is this course.
I sincerely hope you'll join me in learning more about your values and vision because I know what's waiting for when you do... ✨
When you look at your schedule and to-do list, what do you see?
Are you investing your precious time + energy in the things that matter most to you?
Or is your life cluttered and busy with the non-essential?
Don't settle for a life half-lived. Enough is enough.
Join Values + Vision today and take the first step towards aligning your life with what matters most.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN VALUES + VISION
Module 1: Introducing Your Values + Vision
Learn why it's essential to define your values and vision, and discover the common mistake most people make when thinking about their values (this is an eye-opener for most students!).
Module 2: Defining Your Values + Vision
Practical step-by-step activities that will help you clearly define your values and personal vision (with an emphasis on practical—even if you have no idea what your values are, these activities will help!)
Here's what people are saying about these activities:
"I really loved these activities. I found consistent themes in my values that I knew where important to me but I didn't realize how important. I also realized that some things I thought were values actually weren't. I found that some things I thought were a habit or a personality quirk were actually values I held and lastly, it really helped me understand some of my boundaries and priorities better." - Allison Elliott, Values + Vision Student
Module 3: Your Personal Audit
Your Personal Audit is an opportunity to look at the big picture. You’ll reflect on how you're currently spending your time and compare it with your vision— are your actions in alignment with your deepest values? You'll also brainstorm ways to bring your life into alignment with what matters most.
Module 4: Your Tools
I'll show you the two tools I use every day to follow through with my plans and live true to my values and vision.
Here's what one student had to say about this module:
"It gives action to all the things we've discussed earlier. We made plans and thought about what was important and this was like "here's a way to get after it". It's so so helpful to have actual actions to do that can help with the process. I feel like this sets this apart from a lot of books and stuff I've read about this. Self help books talk about the subject a lot but don't usually offer action solutions so that was super valuable to me that this course included that." - Desiree Orchard, Values + Vision Student
Module 5: Additional Resources
In the final module, there are a range of additional resources for you to explore. These include a Journal Prompt Library, an In-Depth Planning Guide (especially useful if you're feeling stuck or unsure of how to achieve your goals!), plus tips on creating habits and overcoming limiting beliefs.
"This course is for anyone who wants to take action in pursuing a life true to your values. I really enjoyed it. I feel like I had a lot of lightbulb "aha!" moments throughout. It brought out some interesting subjects to talk about with my husband, which was an unexpected pleasant benefit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about goals and what I want for my life but this course made me look at those things from a different angle and it was really interesting.
I would definitely recommend it to a friend."

YOUR QUESTIONS, ANSWERED
I thought Simply + Fiercely was a blog about minimalism. Why are you selling a course about values?
I get this―I know a lot of you discovered Simply + Fiercely because you're interested in decluttering and simplifying your life, so you might be wondering why I care so much about values.
The best way to explain this is with this quote:
“Minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from it.” ― Joshua Becker
What this means is you can't live an intentional, minimalist life unless you're clear about what you value most.
Trust me―if you've read my story, you'll know I tried!
I struggled with minimalism for years but I could never make it stick; instead, I was more like a yo-yo dieter. 🤦🏻♀️
I was going around in circles and getting more and more frustrated until finally, I had a breakthrough moment.
I started exploring my personal values and vision, and everything changed for me.
With my newfound clarity about what matters most, I was able to declutter my home and my schedule―and that was just the start of the changes in my life! I also found it easier to create healthy habits and work towards big goals.
In fact, I'm confident that I would have never left my full-time job and started working for myself if I hadn't had the clarity and confidence that comes with really knowing your values and personal vision.
I already know my values. What does this course have to offer me?
If you already know your personal values, then I'm genuinely happy for you because I know the positive impact it can have on your life! 👏🏻
But I still think you'd enjoy Values + Vision because I teach a structured framework for using your values in your life.
Knowing your values is important but it's only half the job done. If you're not actively using your values in your everyday life, then you're missing out.
Plus, I tested this course with a group of students who already had a high awareness of their values, and almost everyone told me they discovered something new! Here's some of the feedback I received:
"I found consistent themes in my values that I knew where important to me but I didn't realize how important. I also realized that some things I thought were values actually weren't. I found that some things I thought were a habit or a personality quirk were actually values I held and lastly, it really helped me understand some of my boundaries and priorities better."—Allison Elliott Values + Vision Student
Tell me more about this "framework" you mentioned...
I developed this framework a few years ago because I needed a structured way to stay focused on what matters most.
Life was busy and I knew my values ... yet somehow it felt like the things that were important to me always ended up on the back burner.
I knew I had to change this.
I wanted to make intentional living real; I was tired of reading blog posts and inspirational quotes but not actually doing anything different.
So I started experimenting and refining, and eventually I came up with the system I teach in Values + Vision. I use this framework almost every day in my own life, as a tool to help me live true to myself, and it's the key reason I was able to make the big changes I mentioned above.
How is this course delivered?
Values + Vision is hosted on Teachable, which is leading platform for online courses. It's very user friendly and easy to use.
There are five modules and 19 lessons. The lesson content is written (in a similar style to my emails and blog posts.) There are six videos as well, but in the videos I'm mostly sharing my personal experiences; the core course content is written.
Also included are two printer friendly course workbooks (and there is also an editable PDF versions if you prefer to type your answers). 😊
I'm busy! How long will this course take to complete?
Trust me, I understand how it feels to be busy!
But one thing I’ve learned is that if you don’t make time to clarify your values and vision, you will never have time for the things that matter most to you.
Most people report that the course took between four and six hours to complete, but you don't have to do it all at once!
The good news is the course is completely self-paced and you have lifetime access, so you can work on it whenever it suits you.
What if I buy the course and I don't like it?
I truly believe in everything I'm offering you because I've seen the difference in my own life and I've also had such positive feedback from many students.
BUT I believe that personal development is personal.
We all learn in different ways, which is why as passionate as I am about this course, I can acknowledge that it might not be for everyone (and that's ok—if we all liked the same things this world would be a pretty boring place!).
It's for this reason that I offer a Nothing to Lose: 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.
If you're not happy with Values + Vision for any reason, simply let me know within 30 days of purchase and I'll issue a full refund, no questions asked.
So what do you have to lose? 😉

Values + Vision is NOT for you if:
"I really got a lot out of the course. More than I expected to actually. I would definitely recommend it to a friend."
