Episode #71 The Power Of Purpose with Jessica Huie
The Power Of Purpose
Our guest on the podcast this week is Jessica Huie MBE, Founder of The Purpose Academy, entrepreneur, and the Author of PURPOSE, published by Hay House. Jessica has enjoyed a glittering career as a journalist working with some of the world’s best-known stars. In 2006 Jessica launched Color Blind Cards, a multi-award-winning multicultural greeting card company that drove an early conversation around the importance of ethnic representation in retail and became the first independent brand to secure a high-street presence for black cards in the UK. Labeled one of Britain’s Most Inspiring Entrepreneurs, Jessica was honored with an MBE for services to entrepreneurship and contribution to diversity and inclusion. In 2017 having recognized a lack of books written by authors of color in the personal development space, she spearheaded the Diverse Wisdom Initiative with Hay House. The program is designed to attract and elevate more writers of color in the holistic health and spirituality space.
Today Jessica shares her own unique path to purpose, from being a teenage mum in the UK, and a successful publicity career to following her calling to become more of herself, and a move to live on the island of Jamaica. Jessica speaks with passion about the ‘magical’ power of purpose, not of something new to be learned but as an inside-out process, stripping away everything that isn’t us, until we are left with only what is, and we find ourselves at our very essence. She talks about creating space for the truth.
Listen in as we talk through how purpose is connected to service, as Jessica states “I am of most service when I heal and expand.” And we explore how the world would be very different if everyone stepped into the power of their purpose. Jessica speaks with rare humility and gratitude about how the ‘magic’ shows up when she lets go of the ‘white knuckle’ ride of life.
If you have ever felt the “niggle” that there is a greater purpose inside of you just waiting to be expressed, then I encourage you to listen to this resonant dialogue for insights. I suspect you’ll enjoy Jessica’s perspective on the power of purpose as much as I did.

“My greatest work is in surrender, in letting go of the agenda and the need to control where I go. And that goes against a lot of what we were taught, in many ways, it goes against the idea of ambition, but, but I think they can coexist”—Jessica Huie
