I'm Jen

hey there!

I help ambitious, mostly have their shit together women go from wanting more (happiness, fulfillment, etc) to F*CK YEAH I love my life without having to Eat, Pray, Love or Thelma and Louise. Ditch the shame for wanting more and go after your F*CK YEAH life with the confidence of your #1 mentor - your future self.



Future Self

You need to honor every part of yourself…even the part that doesn’t want to get out of bed.

How do you find motivation when it’s hard to get out of the bed and not just because the bed is super cozy with luxuriously soft sheets and a down comforter that’s just the right weight – you know – not too heavy but light enough to keep you warm? But because life feels heavy and you’re constantly in the grind going nowhere fast?

That’s exactly the question Lisa Orkin and I explore in this week’s #goingtherewithjen. It’s one thing to be young and have your entire life ahead of you to figure your shit out…but entirely different when you’re 57.

I’m also guessing Lisa and I aren’t alone when we find ourselves running away from success. Why is that? Listen in to hear our thoughts…
