Welcome to ThinkBrilliantly.com

I´m Jan Marie and I´m so glad you´ve found your way here!

Let me tell you a bit about myself…

A natural introvert, I´ve always been on the lookout for ways to understand myself better, bolster my self-esteem, and help me stay positive while I grow and evolve into the person I know I have it in me to be.  

In fact, as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the power of self-awareness to help us discover the hidden truths locked deep inside.

Every morning, I thank my lucky stars as I wake up excited, knowing I am doing what I was put on this earth to do - empower other women like myself to embrace their inner Brilliance, stretch and grow! 

This is my mission and creating a „Brilliance“ mindshift along with an intensely positive self-image have made it possible. What a difference our thoughts can make! They are the foundation that paves the way for every action we take as well as the results we reap...


Well, a lot, really...

There was a time in my life when self-doubt, low self-esteem and depression threatened to rock my entire world. I struggled with keeping the monsters in my mind at bay and battled with feeling desperately unhappy and miserable.

Looking back now, I understand what a vicious cycle my life had fallen into – how I had begun allowing limiting beliefs to eat away at my self-esteem and sabotage the goals I´d set. Whenever I got close to realizing my dreams, that nasty little voice inside my mind would tell me I didn´t deserve success.

To break out of that negative cycle, I decided I needed to begin thinking brilliantly…feeding my mind with positive information, changing my thought processes one by one ~ from the inside out.

By looking closely at my beliefs about myself and my world, re-evaluating my core values, using positive thoughts to silence the negative ones and committing to taking baby steps, day-by-day, I discovered I could re-gain control over my thoughts and emotions, improve my self-talk and focus on doing what I needed to do to live the life I had always dreamed of.

I decided to stop accepting the status quo and take responsibility for my future. I started and built up a successful business. I learned to reach out to people, ask more questions, stand up for what I believed and follow through on those beliefs. It took courage and required me to push outside of my comfort zone…and it was so worth it!

I hated „living small“ and I hate seeing other women do the same…especially when I know there is BRILLIANCE inside each of us, just waiting to get out!

And that´s what I love most – helping women embrace that brilliance and grow their confidence. I love helping them get clarity on what it is they want most, what´s missing…and how to close the gap between the two.

Our work together will help you push past the negative voice inside your head telling you that „you´re not good enough“ or „you can´t“. It will help you face your fears and knock down those barriers that are getting in the way of you living the life you both want and deserve.    

Can you tell how passionate I am about helping you grow your confidence? Passionate about helping you become the powerful, positive, productive person you have it in you to be!

 „What you think of yourself is much more important than what others think of you.“


Confidence is something you create within yourself by believing in who you are…

That´s why we focus on identifying and removing any barriers keeping you from being as powerful as you can be.

Your dreams may seem elusive at the moment but they are out there waiting for you to come and claim them.

Together we can:

  • ​Grow your confidence

Life is what you make it!

Isn´t it time you define exactly what success in YOUR life looks like and start taking the steps to get you there?!
