“Your Past Doesn’t Dictate What Your Future Will Be” – Jillian Bullock

As writer and award winning filmmaker, Jillian’s on-going mission is to produce works that are entertaining, but also empowering and educational. She often writes and speaks about issues that are swept under the rug, issues that need more attention in order to inspire and initiate change.


A former homeless prostitute, high school dropout, drug addict, and teenage mother, Jillian speaks on subjects she knows about first-hand.  She teaches people through her written and spoken word how to achieve greatness in their personal and professional lives.


Jillian was able to transform her own life from a Victim to a Victor, to college educated author, fitness expert, professional speaker, and award winning filmmaker. It wasn't luck or being in the right place at the right time that allowed Jillian to transform her life from a Victim to a Victor. It was blood, sweat, and a whole lot of tears and putting in the grueling work necessary that allowed Jillian to crawl out of the gutter, stand tall and make herself into the successful businesswoman she is today.


Jillian offers speeches, presentations and workshops for corporations, colleges, non-profit organizations, businesses, conferences, and women’s groups. Jillian’s no-holds bar, no sugarcoating style of speaking engages, motivates and invigorates audiences.


Key Topics:

• Empowering People To Be Victors, Not Victims

• Personal and Professional Development



Writing/Screenwriting Topics:

• How To Turn Your Novel Into A Screenplay

• The Steps To Writing a Great Screenplay

• The Do’s and Don’ts of Screenwriting
