About Jamie

How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a Friendship Superstar?

To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting “compelling story”, that brought me to where I am today – coaching people like you on exactly what to do to make new old friends every day. That defining moment in my life happened in 1987.

From earliest memory it seemed like everyone else had friends, except for me. In grade school I couldn’t connect with anyone, and the harder I tried, the worse it got. One of my most vivid memories was in fourth grade. The teacher would say “Okay now, everyone get into groups of four or five,” and my heart would just sink. I would go from one group to another and ask if I could join them, and they would say no. I had no idea why. Finally, with my head held low, I would go up to the teacher’s desk and tell her with all the shame in my heart, that I couldn’t find a group. She would walk me up to a group and basically say to them, “You get Jamie, you have no choice.” Ugh.

And from there it just got worse. I was with the same group of kids from first through eighth grade and I felt like I was the one with two heads. There were parties going on around me all the time, but I was never invited. I kept wondering what was wrong with me.

Fast forward to San Francisco in 1985. By this time, I’d embraced a Nichiren (Practical, or SGI) Buddhist practice. Every day I chanted to fulfill my dreams and desires. And I was immensely lonely. I had two sweet baby boys and managed to make a couple of friends who promptly left San Francisco. So I was alone. But I had two great tools I could use. I had a Buddhist practice that was all about taking responsibility for my karma and changing it, and I had my father, Barry Townsend Newberry who is the world’s best friend cultivator. Now in his late eighties he still has friends from school days, and makes new friends all the time.

So in 1987 I did two things.
1. I called my dad and asked his advice on gaining friendships, and I sat in front of my altar every day and made a fierce determination to change my karma so that I could have friendships. I chanted to change myself on the inside…to somehow root out whatever it was (I didn’t know what it was, and I still don’t) that was keeping me from having rich, loving, expressive friendships.
2. I followed my Dad’s advice and chanted with this powerful determination to change my karma.

My life with friendships totally changed. I became the person I always wanted to be. For many years I have lived a life full of wonderful invitations people who truly inspire me make me laugh, and are THERE for me as I am there for them. When I had an operation I was surrounded in love and warmth. When I had a family tragedy I wasn’t alone for a second.

Recently I moved to St. Pete Beach from Chicago and I have rich friendships in St. Pete already, and friends all over the world through my blog Chant for happiness. I have more best friends than I can count and they all love me as much as I love them. Each one is unique and I make more every day. I create unique parties where we all share ideas, poetry and create lasting bonds of friendship.

So now, I’m teaching women how they can do the same: I love watching my clients’ circles of girlfriends grow! I made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping other women blossom with rich friendships. Women who have been lonely, who are no longer in school, and who previously felt hopeless about ever making friends are filling up their social calendars with fun and exciting things to do with with new best friends! They’ve learned the skills to make make and keep friends, and to build friendship circles.

Since then, I’ve worked with many private clients, spoken in front of countless groups: I am living my dream of moving to the sunshine state and creating rich circles of friendships with people who share my interests.

I have created Popular YOU! Make New Best Friends Anytime, Anywhere™, a series of 10 steps to change your mindset, build your skills and bring in those new friends who are looking for YOU now! First comes the mindset change and exposure to all the tools to BE a friend, to yourself, then to others. You’ll learn about chanting, mirror work, affirmations and Energy Freedom Technique. These tools create a deeply satisfying relationship with yourself, and serve to magnetize new friends to you who share your interests and cherish you as you cherish them. You can break through self-doubt, loneliness and fear of making those crucial new connections. I’ll teach you how to gain interest on first meeting, how to weed out the people who bring you down and how to create a circle of people who inspire you and bring you joy.

I will teach you the steps you need to take to be happier with your friendships than you ever thought possible.

 

Who are your clients?

I work with people just like you who are out of school, in the real world, in the workforce, self-employed, or retired, and who long for girlfriends, and/or a girlfriend group. Some are single, some are married, but all know that female friendships are the cornerstones of happiness in life. Most of them see other women creating these relationships but have been somehow unable to build them for themselves…until they began working with me!

My potential clients include women who

  • Want friends and are willing to do the breakthrough personal work to get them
  • Have moved to a new area
  • Are divorced
  • Have had a loss
  • Whose friends have died
  • Are in marriages that aren’t working
  • Whose husbands travel frequently
  • Who’ve watched others forming friendships, but are still looking for the key to doing this themselves

 

How does a Friendship Superstar Coaching work?

While you learn new powerful tools for inner transformation and outer success, you have me as a friendship cultivator consultant. I help you work on the inner and outer principals for success and look at forming friendships from a spiritual perspective, and make the inner change to have the outer result. You also learn my tools for meeting people for the first time, and turning them into lifelong friends. What that means to you is that you get a wise-loving-sage authentic friendship coach. I’ll give you valuable information so you can achieve your new friend-making success. I’ll be honest and straightforward, and a warm, loving hand to guide you through.

I’m thrilled to help you get your friendship circles up and running. Some of what I’ll suggest may be a little uncomfortable…but when you need to grow, you need to grow. If you are open to making changes within yourself, if you are tired of not having someone to call when you want to do something fun, if you want to have a circle of friendships to surround you at those crucial times, and cheer you on in your success…I can help you with that.

 

What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?

The Popular YOU! Make New Best Friends Anytime, Anywhere™, workshops, products and programs were created for people who are absolutely excited and serious about cultivating new lifelong friends. It means not beating yourself up anymore saying: “Everyone has friends but me. What do they have that I don’t have? Why can’t I be popular and make friends? Why don’t I have someone to go to the movies with, or go boating with or_____________,” you fill in the blank here. They were created for you to put systems in place within a few months (days! weeks!), which will eventually lead you to being surrounded by your loving tribe!

Being a Friendship Superstar myself, I’m known to work best with people who have a deep longing to connect, and who genuinely LIKE people and want to fill their lives with happy events and celebrations, people who are committed to building circles of friends and who are super-ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to take to make new life-long friends now. My clients often tell me – “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it!” Consider our work together to be a high-octane crash course on everything you need to know to have stimulating, fun friendships! You will be expected to take daily, consistent action. No wondering why anymore, just a very different way of thinking and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: having a fulfilling and happy social life full of interesting, fun people who share your interests and passion, highs, and lows, become your chosen family and invite you to great events all the time!

 

For what type of people are your programs NOT going to work?

Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.) The Popular YOU programs are NOT for those who have no money coming in and are absolutely financially desperate. It’s been my experience that people in financial crisis do not trust the recommendations I give them and do not do the work (probably because they spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get next month’s rent check or mortgage payment.) If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another. Do yourself (3) favors:

  1. Get some money coming in with a full-time or part-time job at the very least, and then call me. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will declutter your mind enough to focus on your Popular YOU assignments and the BIG picture. Once you start seeing the money come in regularly as a result of our work, you can then start reducing the hours you work at that other job and focus on your own practice.
  2. Check out JamieLeeSilver.com for some free Popular YOU tips to get started until you’re ready to work with me one-on-one.
  3. Make a point to read the “Popular YOU“ weekly tip in my ezine. The tips are sent every week and will give you LOTS to think about.

Doing these three things will really help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get you started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me.) Other types of personalities I won’t work with (without exception) are the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?

Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?

Yes, I encourage you to! Please go to the Client Testimonials page and read all of them. See which ones you feel drawn to, either because the person has gotten the results you want to get, or perhaps because that person is in a similar situation. Then feel free to email or call them and ask what they got from working with me and my programs.

 

How quickly can I expect results?

That depends on how quickly you can make those inner shifts. Some clients are ready from the first modules, and are already primed for results, sometimes even a few days while others have a bit more work to do first. It also depends on how willing you are to listen to what I say, and follow your own personal prescription for creating your Miracle Morning to jumpstart the inner changes that will skyrocket you into the Friendship Superstar zone.

 

How can I guarantee myself that I will get more friends in record time?

Do all of your homework. Be totally committed to your success. Understand that this is a process, a proven one, that works if you take action and implement all of the steps. All my clients who have diligently applied every step of Popular You! Make New Best Friends Anytime, Anywhere™ have become Friendship Superstars and have successfully made new old friends, gathered fulfilling circles of friendships in much less time than they would have on their own AND have cultivated enhanced love for their lives and for their own selves, which, as you know, is the key to living the most fulfilling life of all.
