According to Summerlin super couple, Lisa and Jesse Ferrell, whose firm, JessTalk, has logged more than 183,000 hours of executive coaching and professional speaking services for thousands of clients worldwide since its founding in 2001, the community is the perfect place to call home.
The Ferrells, who live within walking distance of Downtown Summerlin, just west of the 215 Beltway, thrive on the energy of the retail and dining destination that is home to their favorite restaurants, including Jing, True Food Kitchen and Frankie’s Uptown.
“Everything we want is right here, so we rarely have a need to leave our Summerlin nest, other than trips to the airport when our work takes us out of town,’ said Lisa. “And given that we are literally one minute from the 215, getting just about anywhere is quick and convenient. We especially love our view of Red Rock Canyon and proximity to this beautiful area that we visit at least monthly. It’s hard to find anything we don’t love about Summerlin,” she said.
The Ferrells love story with Summerlin is wrapped around their own love story. The couple met when Lisa sought professional coaching from Jesse, who worked with her for more than a year before realizing his client had fallen for him. The rest, as they say, is history. The couple married, and together, has built a thriving business with the entrepreneurial and outgoing spirit they share.
Jesse, whose passion for his work, is evident with every word that crosses his lips, says the pillar of the couple’s work he is most excited about is professional speaking. Together, the couple has traveled the globe running workshops and providing training to individuals and companies of all sizes. Lisa’s work focuses primarily on workshops to empower women, and together, they provide executive and personal success coaching. Their newest project, a virtual class called The Breakthrough Success Plan, helps individuals to visualize and achieve their goals and dreams utilizing a variety of tools, resources and techniques.
Jesse, who frequently uses The Color Code personality test to help clients better assess and understand their personality and communications styles, says that if Summerlin was a color, it would be
Impossible to assign it only one. You know, the test that assigns yellow to fun-lovers, white to those who are kind and gentle, blue to those who have integrity and seek appreciation, and red to hard-driving overachievers for whom getting things done is everything.
“Summerlin is so thoughtfully planned and multi-faceted, the community has the ability to speak the language of everyone and it is beyond healthy,’ said Jesse. “Summerlin’s parks, trails, and happy places at Downtown Summerlin are yellow; its office towers and business centers are red; its neighborhoods, homes and landscapes are white; and its schools and civic centers like the library and hospital are blue.”
The couple, who is living their best life in Summerlin, said nearby Downtown Summerlin was a game changer for them. “Going out to dinner or a ballgame is now just a short stroll away,” said Lisa. “Here, life is fun, full, exciting and energetic. The community embodies the very elevated lifestyle we strive to help our clients achieve and embrace.”
