ABOUT JEN

About Jen Jones IncI’m Jen, and like many of you, I have spent a lifetime building other people’s dreams. Several years ago I decided it was my turn. Well, that turned out badly. …Or did it? You see, I don’t believe there is any such thing as bad luck. I believe that every single thing that “happens” to us is all a wonderful plan to show us what is going well in our lives and what we still need a little work on.

I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling and a self-appointed PhD in Happiness. My mom always said I was the smilingest baby she had ever met! And it’s true; I have gone through life with an optimistic attitude and am the most positive person I have ever known. {self high-five}

However, I always felt something was missing. I was stunned when I discovered the missing link was happiness! Me?? Not happy?? Yep. Me. Oh, sure I was happy on the surface…and I mean truly happy – I wasn’t faking. But way down deep in my soul, I was mad. Mad at all the things that didn’t turn out the way I thought they should. Mad at myself for letting people treat me poorly. Just. Plain. Mad. And this toxic waste infected my success.

Once I challenged my inner level of happiness, I began investing in myself, my business skyrocketed, and clients were showing up everywhere wanting to work with me! Magic, right? Nope. Just getting into the flow of me. #happinessisthenewwealthy

My tools are varied, but my message is the same: it is imperative that you be happy NOW, even if it seems the world is crashing down around you.

I don’t spend time teaching “how to be happy” per se. You can google it. 😉 I’m all about getting into action and doing the things that result in happiness. That means we will actively cultivate your relationship with your life, your body, and your food. #workyourhappy

To give you an idea of where I have come from, we have to go waaay back. 🙂 Perhaps you will resonate with what I’ve experienced. Perhaps your journey is similar…

Some of the Tough Lessons

About Jen LessonsI am a born leader, but paradoxically I had been serving in roles where I was the minion.

Business savvy has always come easy to me. Therefore I didn’t think my skills were a big deal. I was certain everyone could do what I do. Even though I was consistently working circles around anyone within my close proximity, I believed all the internal lies and limiting self-talk and still thought like a minion.

Underacknowledged, passed over for raises, promoted for the same pay, taken for granted. This was my life. And I KNEW I wanted something different, but had no idea what, or how to get there.

But that’s not all.

What I didn’t realize was that I was changing on the inside.

Lack of confidence in myself became rooted in my being. Playing small became second nature. Staying in comfortable yet unfulfilling jobs became my status quo. My world was full of “should’s” and working desperately to appease other people’s opinions. My subconscious was working overtime collecting evidence and protecting me from rising to the top.

That elusive thing that I somehow knew I was destined for, slipped away. It became unattainable. Ultimately I minimized the impact I could have on the world.

The Depths

About Jen JourneySo work wasn’t going so well because I allowed myself to be invisible. On the soul front, I was dying inside. I lived my life in fear, terrified I would do something wrong. I was desperately waiting to be acknowledged for my accomplishments. I worked so hard to please people, I was exhausted and drained of life. I began to be numb.

Then one day, my life changed drastically.

My 16 year marriage ended and I found myself divorced. No one goes into a marriage thinking it will end in divorce, but I was the antithesis of divorce. A marriage advocate, I taught marriage classes at my church, counseled women in marriage crisis, and was looked up to and well respected in my community. To say I was shocked and traumatized is an understatement. Absolutely everything about my life changed that day.

Let me say one thing before I go on. I am eternally grateful for this catastrophic happening in my life. It catapulted me into places in my soul I had been avoiding, but desperately needed to heal. I’ve always said that while I would never have chosen that path for myself, I wouldn’t have become the person I am today if it had happened any other way.

My Valiant Attempts + Epic Fails

about jen 3I became an entrepreneur. No longer working for someone else, being subjected to their condescension, I thought I had finally arrived. Not so much. Even though I am heavily versed in systems required to run businesses, it was a much different animal when it was MY business. This is where the inner game became Queen.

I became desperate, and I mean DESPERATE, to make money. I was a good girl and followed all the rules “they” teach. Work hard. Sacrifice. It will be worth it in the end. So when I wasn’t making it financially, I knew just what to do. Work harder, later, longer. So I did. And made $800 in 2 years. Total.

Epic fail.

I couldn’t believe it! I mean, I’m a smart girl! I’ve got a Master’s Degree in Counseling! I can learn ANYTHING! How could this be?!!

Well, here’s how. I hadn’t fixed the problem, plus I added on a new one! My thoughts were still small and in lack and scarcity, and now on top of it, I was working in desperation.

Epic fail.

Then One Fateful Day…

About Jen One Day
I began my journey inward to discover the power of my subconscious thoughts and how they had been running the show. I began to voraciously devour any and every book on the subject, and have probably given myself a PhD in the process!

I dug deep and began identifying and changing everything I could find that no longer served me.

And then one day, oh, that fateful day…I felt inspired to take a bath as a way to relax from my high-stress go-go-go entrepreneur lifestyle. This was WAY out of my comfort zone. After all, I had THINGS to do! So I dusted out the tub (seriously, I had never taken a bath in it), and the rest, as they say, is history.









My Journey Back

About Jen Leader
This simple practice of completely removing myself from work…during the work day {gasp}…created a whole new paradigm in my business. Simply introducing play into my life created happiness. And from there my business flourished! It was uncanny!

Old beliefs and behaviors began to fall away and new life and renewed spirit were filling me daily. And then one day I noticed…

Playing small no longer worked for me.

And I began shining my light brightly instead of retreating into the shadows.
