In a world that profits from our pain, I (and my clients) chose to live a wildly fulfilling life.

What Is a Wildly Fulfilling Life?

One that lights us up from the inside out.

One that has us going to sleep each night eager to do it all over again tomorrow.

One that feels as good as it looks.

One that gives us the more we want – deep contentment, holy fulfillment, and heaping piles of gratitude.

We want this not just for ourselves but for everyone around us and living our most fulfilling lives allows us to be there for others fully in the ways we want.

I don’t know about you but I lost literal decades to having a life that looked great to the outside observer but inside I felt lonely, broken, ungrateful, resentful, bitter, angry, and constantly trying to find ways to escape.

It was heartbreaking and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone except I KNOW there are millions of accomplished women suffering in silence because we were raised being told we could have it all and we’ve been killing ourselves ever since.

That’s why I do the work I do.

The concept is simple and the work is anything but. What I can guarantee you? It’s (the work) ABSOLUTELY worth it.

I’ve created a method and framework that starts with joy + delight, peppers in ease and fun, and ends with knowing that you will always have your own back and how to continually get your needs met because you are just as worthy and deserving as the next person.

The three steps are:

  1. Start with the end in mind
  2. Create a loving relationship with yourself
  3. Close the gaps through intentional + inspired action

Step One: Start With the End In Mind

I’ve shared many blog posts about how to tap into the wisdom of your best 80-yo future self so I’ll list them here for your reading pleasure.

All future self posts

I start with creating a detailed vision of your best 80-yo future self because:

a) it’s fun to dream about the possibilities in front of you which helps you want to dig in to do more and

b) with that vision, you can create a mentorship that helps you with decisions big and small, healing your ish, and everything in between.

Step Two: Create A Loving Relationship With Yourself

You can’t hate your way to healing. Trust me – I tried.

It wasn’t until I decided to approach doing the work with self-kindness, compassion, worthiness, etc. alongside the mentorship of my best possible 80-yo future self – did I start to make actual lasting changes that had deep, profound effects on the quality of my life.

Does this happen overnight? Sadly – no. Does it take patience and practice? Absolutely.

You’re building a muscle, creating new neural pathways – and that shit takes time and repetition.

Go gentle with yourself but do learn how to have your own back, to not quit on yourself and your dreams, to get your needs met, and put yourself first sometimes because you are just as worthy as anyone else.

Practice + patience.

The quality of our life (mental, physical, and emotional) is directly correlated to the quality of our relationships, including with ourselves. ~ Me

Step Three: Close the Gaps Through Intentional + Inspired Action

I’m a software development project manager by trade so I am ALWAYS looking for action. Strategy and planning are important but not at the sake of action which is what gets momentum turning and actual change happening.

With your best possible future self in mind and a strong, loving relationship with yourself, you can now look at the gaps between where you are and where you want to be and take action accordingly.

Not everything can be done all at once. Some gaps are more important than others. What are your non-negotiables and nice-to-haves and optionals that while nice, don’t move the needle much towards your life’s satisfaction and fulfillment?

Choose 1 or 2 and get started. Think about what might get in your way and make plans in case those circumstances come true.

Of course it’s much more nuanced and complex than I can fit in a single blog post but I want you to know:

  • it’s possible (finding the more you need so you can live your wildly fulfilling life)
  • the journey can be enjoyable (so often we talk about the slog of it all and it doesn’t have to be that way)
  • you absolutely can do the work because you are a strong, independent, accomplished woman and you do hard things all the time

If you’d like support doing this work, I’m always here and would love to talk about how I can support you through my 1:1 coaching.

Hey there! I'm Jen V.

I'm a unicorn mix of coach, mentor, consultant, wing woman, & slightly annoying cheerleader with 30+ years experience as a strategic project manager  who can help YOU make your Bold AF Dreams INEVITABLE

When I say I've got you...I'VE LEGIT GOT YOU.

Epic shit happens when we work together whether it's delivering multi-million dollar projects, writing your first or next novel, reinventing yourself after divorce, creating the next must have app, getting the promotion, going back to school, starting the non-profit, or whatever epic shit YOU want to do.

What you learn extends well beyond the bounds of us working together. You will know how to make your Bold AF Dreams a reality for the rest of your life.


I KNOW EXACTLY WHEN TO...

give you a swift kick in the ass and/or nudge you forward (you always decide how hard)

give you a helping hand to the other side when all you want is to bury your head in the sand

remind you of the absolute badass you are and that you've absolutely got this especially when you forget

give you encouraging words in a non-blowing smoke up your ass way and funny memes...always funny memes (you decide how inappropriate because trust my friends, I can go there)

help you learn how to celebrate the hell out of yourself (none of that self-deprecating shit no matter how funny it is) with every action - tiny or GINORMOUS - don't matter
