Fear of failure, fear of a mistake, fear of letting people down, we have to take risks for anything good in life. Fear is a magical thing, it can push us outside our comfort zones in order to grow.
Oh O you've gone down the Google rabbit hole and now you're wondering why you are suddenly trying to learn how to do a lotus napkin fold because you have no idea where to start with yachting.

After looking through Jess's content and all the useful tips she was sharing, I knew the guide would be really detailed! AND IT WAS. It gave me the push I needed and was a great first investment into my yachting career. I got offered a job just 4 days after my first application! Super grateful to have The Yachting Kickstarter as my go-to guide.

It’s such a relief to instantly find all the advice you need all in one place - can’t emphasise enough how helpful her stuff is!
The Yachting Kickstarter is amazing for anyone wanting to get into the yachting industry. It has individual tips that only experience can provide. My favorite part was the PDF with all the crew agencies, it was one of those agencies which led me to my first job!
The Yachting Kickstarter does exactly what it says! It has kickstarted my yachting career with the most incredible amount of knowledge, tips and tricks. Absolutely everything I want and need to know is in there - plus more! I feel confident and prepared to enter and succeed in the yachting industry with jess' help!

I help aspiring yacht crew by propelling them with the know-how and tools to confidently break into the superyacht industry - so they can start living their best lives... working and travelling the world on luxury yachts whilst getting paid (amazing) money to do so!
In the past 12 months, I’ve helped many aspiring yacht crew land their first jobs within just a few weeks of ticking off their courses! Let me show you how I can help you too...
Get paid (good money!) to travel the world whilst working on superyachts
Secure a job with no experience and work your way up to chief stew
Set yourself up financially with the expense free lifestyle that yachting offers
Have a whole new group of friends based all around the world
Before you know it you'll be travelling by boat to places you didn't even know existed, serving the rich and famous.

Aspiring yacht crew- that's you! For the soon to be STEWS & DECKHANDS
Cheeky risk taker (I mean aren't we all?!) You risk heartbreak for love and risk failing to take big steps and find success.
You're prepared to do the ground work hint hint... Dock Walking is key to success.
You're not prepared to take action...
this course is not for the fence sitters
You are trying to become a yachting engineer. The pathway to doing so is different to that of a junior stew, deck or chef.
Not if you are purchasing only the Yachting Kickstarter course, if you are wanting a full CV review I recommend purchasing the 'bundle buy' option which includes The Yachting CV toolkit.
Yes absolutely! I offer email support to help you and will check in with you to see how you're going once you're in the yachting hubs and on the quest for a job. I also answer any questions you have along the way.
COVID has not affected the billionaires of the world who own and charter yachts. Yachting hasn’t been as heavily affected as say the hospitality industry or cruise ship. Yachting will carry on, boats always need crew.
As mentioned previously this course is not for the fence sitters, its specifically for the action takers and due to the nature of the digital product, refunds are not available.
This course does not guarantee you a job, it simply gives you the best possible chance at securing a job in the competitive yachting industry.
Yes, depending on your skill set you can always do interior courses in order to upskill and get you up to speed on what is required for the yachting industry.
