I’m Jill Chivers - welcome to my website!  I’m an entrepreneur who's created successful businesses in the real and virtual worlds.  I’m a speaker, writer, content creator, leadership and entrepreneurs coach, professional facilitator, and workshop leader.  Consistent feedback I’ve received about the impact of my work is that it inspires real and lasting change in how people think, feel, and behave.

My background is working for a Big 4 Advisory-Accounting firm.  Based in Australia, I worked on multi-phase, multi-year, multi-million-dollar projects all over the country and was recruited as the first Australian to lead the Global Development Team based in Canada. In that role, I supported practitioners from every corner of the globe with methodology development and implementation support.  That cornerstone career experience has informed every aspect of the professional I am to this day.

People tell me I’m an action taker and motivating influence.   I’ve developed content and delivered live events for clients, and worked with smart people as a joint venture partner.   In the corporate world, my client roster includes some of the world’s most trusted and well-known global companies.  I’ve been fortunate to work with great people from blue chip companies.  Most of my work is repeat or referral.


In certain circles, I’m well known as a reformed shopaholic who believes change is possible for those carrying the heavy (and often secret) burden of an overshopping compulsion (which is more people than you might imagine). After completing an extreme personal challenge of a year without clothes shopping, I created the world’s first online membership program for women who want to shop less and live more.

This program continues to attract members from all over the world after more than a decade. Through the development of this program, I worked with some of the world’s leading thinkers, authors and change agents when it comes to stopping the overshopping cycle and how you can develop sustainable style without shopping all the time. The Shop Your Wardrobe program is the only program of its kind in the world, and women who participate in the program report life changing transformations they never thought were possible. I also authored a book, which is available on Amazon.

I have appeared in many media stories, mostly in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. Appearances include the Today Show, Sunrise, Today Tonight, The Project, The Morning Show, Triple J, Be magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the Wall Street Journal.

In recent years, I’ve been a noteworthy contributor to the intriguing field of the psychology of style, co-developing the world’s first program linking psychological type with personal style. As a piece of applied psychology, 16 Style Types is a world class world first and brings together two areas I’m deeply fascinated by – people and style.

My life and career have had many interesting twists and turns. I believe in the power of claiming our stories (and our lives) by embracing all parts of ourselves – not just those parts we’d include in a job résumé. My mantra is: Claim your life and live it fully!

A Claimed Life
