Jamie ‘Jai’ Morrison is an author and health, fitness and wellness champion. Jamie’s love for reading started when she found the books, The Coldest Winter Ever, by Sister Souljah and Flyy Girl, by Omar Tyree. As a child, Jamie’s passion for reading became her escape after she and her siblings were sent to live with various family members.
Jamie earned her master’s degree in physician assistant studies after 13 years of service in the military as a medical technician. After having her second child, Jamie began a health, fitness, and wellness journey that led to fitness and bodybuilding competitions.
Fueled by her desire to help others and trials she faced as a young woman, Jamie shared her story in her first book, 16 Years 2 Life. Her second book, Boots, Bibs, and Barbells, encourages women from all walks of life to chase their goals and shows them how to take the fear out of meal planning.

This episode was inspired by my recent trip to Atlanta to speak at the inaugural She Podcasts Live conference – an event created for female podcasters. I had an AMAZING time meeting new and old friends, learning from presenters, and being introduced to new products and services for podcasters. In this episode, I share some of the unexpected benefits of being a podcaster and how I discovered my personal power.
When I began my podcasting journey in 2015, I had no idea that it would help me face and overcome some of my biggest fears while helping me gain new skills and build confidence.
As you listen, I encourage you to find yourself in my story.
What projects are you currently working on that have allowed you to stretch, learn, and evolve?
What fears have you overcome?
What skills have you gained as a result of your work?
Life is all about learning and growing. If you’re not learning, you’re not growing. If you’re not growing, you’re not truly living – you’re simply existing.
I hope that you hear something that inspires you and reminds you of the possibilities that are within your reach every single day. You have more power than you may recognize. If your life isn’t going the way you want it to, use your power to change it. Life is too short to spend it sitting on the sidelines. It’s your time to shine!
Wishing you ALL my very best,
