I am able to communicate my worth and why I am different than other studios, because I was able to find clarity and connect to my purpose.
I felt like I knew my potential was MORE than what I was doing, but I felt there was a gap between where I was and where I wanted to be - but I didn't know how to push through it. I was frustrated, overworked, underpaid, and I knew I needed to shake things up.
I knew things were working when I nearly tripled my prices, without losing any clients and actually continuing to gain more. When Jennifer and I first started working together, I was barely making 2K a month consistently. Last month, I just had my first 10K month. I think those numbers speak for themselves! The growth now is consistent, always increasing, and my confidence has grown significantly.
Now, I feel more in control of my business and I feel truly like an owner. I am working on managing a team of 8 employees, and I have crafted my branding and message to deliver to clients. I am able to set boundaries, uphold my policies - and STOP OFFERING DISCOUNTS. I am able to communicate my worth and why I am different than other studios, because I was able to find clarity and connect to my purpose.
I was able to achieve such a fast amount of huge growth because she pushed me past my comfort zone and helped me reach higher (and dream bigger!)
Jennifer will help you, in ways that you aren't able to help yourself. She can see how you are holding yourself back, she is the voice of reason and reflection. Investing in my business was the first step I made to take myself seriously, to commit 100% and to begin the journey of creating something big.
I always leave our calls full of enthusiasm and passion as well as with exact steps that I can take to grow my business.
"My biggest problem was lack of confidence. I had made some big leaps in my business and instead of feeling excited to keep growing my business, I had become crippled with fear, unable to make decisions to move my business forward.
I kept telling myself that fear and excitement felt the same way. But I was stuck in this fear rut. I knew I needed to confront the fear, learn to deal with it and keep moving.
I also knew that I needed to address some of my money blocks if I was ever going to grow my business.
What was different about working with Jennifer was her confidence. I was going through a season where I felt like I had no confidence, meeting with her and catching some of her enthusiasm was exciting.
Jennifer is also incredibly awesome at strategy. Talking through some strategy for my coaching business has been invaluable. I always, always leave our calls full of not just enthusiasm and passion but also exact steps that I can take to grow my business.
An example was the financial knockout calls that you helped me put together. I sold 8 of those in an hour long webinar and went into that webinar with such confidence.
I feel more confident and sure of my skills. I know that fear may still creep up but I don’t let it overcome me. I feel excited about my future again and look forward to growing my business.
I really don’t think I would have gotten the same results without working with Jennifer. I loved Jennifer’s absolute confidence in my abilities. She never, ever made me feel inadequate or silly for asking a question.
She taught me strategy with such excitement and ease it was contagious.
I appreciated time to work through some of the blocks, do some work on my own but have Jennifer to talk through it with and help challenge exactly what was blocking me, holding me back or causing fear in the moment.
If you are looking to work with a coach, Jennifer is worth the investment. Walking through something as personal as I did with Jennifer reminds me that you need to hire a coach that is a good match for you.
I’ve worked with other coaches before who tend to think it’s their way or the highway and I didn’t get that at all with Jennifer.
I got a coach who offered suggestions, modelled what she taught, and truly cared for me. So much so, that my first question during our last call in our program was “how can we keep working together”?"
Doing this work has helped me build my confidence so I’m focused…of course I can do these things!
It felt like any time I made progress in my business, shortly after, I would take more steps back than I had moved forward previously. I kept thinking I just needed to push through, work harder, and often avoided things because they were "too hard”.
I do a lot of things to make myself feel good (doctors and nutrition) but I hadn’t thought about how working on my mindset could help me.
By week 3 of working together I noticed that I was bringing up more 'moments of success' in our calls - I was focusing less on negative things happening and more so on celebrating the successes and things I was accomplishing.
The biggest accomplishment for me so far is being aware of my limiting beliefs! While I still encounter moments of self doubt and lack of confidence or clarity I am able to move through them by using the strategies that Jennifer has taught me.
I’m not stuck on things as long as I used to be so I can execute faster. I’m more assertive and keep my boundaries. Doing this work has helped me build my confidence so I’m focused…of course I can do these things!
I also realized that you don’t have to do it all and I’m excited that I can get more leverage. Now, I more focused on the vision and the future and being in an inspired space and therefore I’m more productive and joyous in my business!
My business now feels like it's just an extension of me. Being in the program gave me the permission to be who I wanted to be without worrying about how anyone else perceived it.
Just about 9 months ago I was in what felt like a completely different universe. I was transitioning from my day job into becoming an entrepreneur. The only problem was I didn't have any desire to get up and do that. I had all the resources that I needed but at the end of the day I just didn't feel the excitement to actually work on the business. It was more "work" for me. It was more of a chore.
It was very frustrating.
I felt that by joining Change Your Story, Change Your Results, I would discover the block and how to move forward.
On one call, I was mentioning that I couldn't get clients. You then asked me, well, how do you feel about getting clients? And I said, well, I'd want to get clients but I'm afraid that if I get clients I'm going to be busy and overwhelmed and not want to do the stuff that I enjoy. And right away you said, “you should be doing something where you feel like you don't have to do it, you get to do it”.
It was that light bulb!
Every time I booked a client I felt like I was leaving my joy to go work on this business.
It was then I decided to shift into my new niche within Crave Your Home. I started doing a weekly video, growing a following and marketing my services.
Within a few months I had four Ikea kitchens booked. Between September to December I did six Ikea Kitchens and about five to six online design plans.
My business now feels like it's just an extension of me. It doesn't even feel like it's necessarily a business. It's just a joy.
If I hadn't joined that program, I don't think there would have been many clients and I think it would have given up and gone back to my job.
Being in the program gave me the permission to be who I wanted to be without worrying about how anyone else perceived it.
If you find yourself in a position where you feel like you're doing what you're supposed to be doing for your business and it's still not going anywhere or you feel like you have a block somewhere that you just don't know how to get through yourself, then Jennifer is definitely the person to talk to!
I feel like Jennifer works at a deeper level than being an entrepreneur and starting a business. I feel like she did more work with me and who I am and finding that and then bringing that to the business that I want it to be.
"I've grown my audience, quadrupled my email list, I have several new clients and I'm now being interviewed on podcasts. Things drastically changed for me by working with Jennifer."
Before working with Jennifer even though I was growing my audience, I was having trouble finding clients within that audience. I was also really struggling with the idea of selling and talking to my audience about my services.
It was pretty frustrating. I was putting in work, I was doing what I thought I needed to do. I was on social media, I was writing weekly emails, but things weren't happening for me, and I couldn't really figure out why.
I knew I wanted to work with Jenifer because she had this positive glow, and a really genuine way, and that she seemed really interested in helping me, whether or not I was going to become her client or not.
Through the work that we did together, now in my business, I have built a momentum, not only with what I had been doing to put myself out there, but also in my mindset.
I've grown my audience, quadrupled my email list, I have several new clients and I'm now being interviewed on podcasts. All of that in the name of doing the work that I want to do, which is impacting INFJ women and helping them create their vision and make it a reality.
Things are completely different, even though I look back and it really was only a number of months that we worked together, things drastically changed for me by working with Jennifer. I just want to say thank you.
I appreciate Jennifer's guidance and support, accountability, and even the insight that she brings, that's a key piece I saw with her. Jennifer has amazing insight into people and ideas that just flow from her mind as we're talking together about how I can move my business forward. Things that are unique for me in my situation.
If you are thinking of working with Jennifer, do it. If you put in the work and you have your mind open to thinking about things in a different way, things could be amazingly different for you in just a matter of months.
"A coach helps you see things that you can't see for yourself. Jennifer was able to shine that light for me so that I make these important shifts and allow in my coaching practice."
I was working with another business coach and it was a lot of strategies that we were working with and after so many months of doing the strategies that she was teaching us, I still wasn't seeing the results.
I wanted to break through why I wasn't getting clients, I was just struggling trying to build my business. I knew I needed help digging deeper with that. I just so happened to run across Jennifer and listen to some of her work, philosophies and teachings, and it just felt like a fit for me.
There was one point where I thought, this is never going to work, and I didn't know how it was going to work, and it got so intense that I really did have to just let go. But as Jennifer had said, it was then that opportunities and things popped up for me were just unbelievable. I can't even explain it. I couldn't even predict that months prior to it happening, when we first started, that that would ever happen.
There was three major things that stood out for me with working with Jennifer and the first one was when we talked about the definition of success, and that was just a huge mind shift. Realizing that it's all the behind scenes that you do that is considered the success. It's not just reaching the top, it's all the things that you do prior to it, which when we reviewed what I had done, I realized, I'm very successful!
The second one was on abundance and money and Jennifer helped me see how abundant I am! And that it doesn't have to come any specific way which we always think, but it's the channels. So the universe is going to provide it for us, we just have to see that it's different channels that it's coming through.
The third was when I had a really huge breakthrough session with Jennifer. It was all about the unworthiness belief that I had about myself, and how I was meeting all my needs by being unworthy. I thought, "this is ridiculous, I can't keep doing that"!
It was shortly after that breakthrough session, that things started happening and appearing in my life including my opportunity to have a full roster of clients.
A coach helps you see things that you can't see for yourself, and it's just that two millimetre shift that even if we practice all we want, but if we can't see it ourselves, we are going to keep making those same mistakes or run into the same blocks all the time. Jennifer was able to shine that light for me so that I make these important shifts. Thank you so much Jennifer!
It is absolutely worth it 100% to work with Jennifer.
"I feel so much better about growing my business. I’m receiving more and it just feels much more relaxed and in flow and I feel more abundant."
In the beginning, I was comparing myself to other people who were having success and I realized I had to change my definition of success because it was debilitating and frustrating. I was “shoulding” all over myself for not having enough time and it would make me frustrated and question myself and doubt myself, and then it was really hard to be able to focus on work if that's the way I felt.
Changing my definition of success gave me peace of mind and permission to let go of the negative practices and thoughts, like being stressed about time. When I was able to just let it go and release it I was able to see that if I'm not feeling good, I’ve got to take care of myself.
Now, I can do more in an hour of feeling good then in three hours of not feeling good.
I feel so much better about growing my business. I just had my first client sign up last month since changing my niche.
I've also started looking at things differently. I'm focusing on goals that feel good to me and achievable. It makes me more confident and calmer.
One thing that I've found going through this process is that it's actually helped me outside the business too. I'm teaching a lot of this to my kids now. “Let's feel our emotions. Let’s talk about it, let's figure it out and work through it and then overcome it instead of freaking out."
I feel more relaxed even at home around the kids. There's no more sitting on little red Lego chairs crying my eyes out.
I’m receiving more and it just feels much more relaxed and in flow and I feel more abundant.
Making more strategic and aligned decisions is just SO MUCH simpler when you have confidence and clarity.
I worked with Jennifer to take my business to the next level. I was a successful freelance health writer, but I wanted to expand to selling health and blogging-related products and programs online.
I knew it could be done, but I didn't know exactly how to make it happen. I had been spinning my wheels trying to DIY it for long enough.
I had come to realize that if you keep doing what you've done, you'll keep getting what you've got. And when you know you need to invest in expertise to help you, you just know that's the next step.
Working with Jennifer I gained more confidence in my value (and my awesomeness) and clarity on the steps to take to reach my business goals.
I loved her creative ideas for new offerings and strategy on how to put those into a funnel. I also enjoyed her undivided attention during our meetings.
I definitely feel more inwardly confident as not just a health writer and blogger, but also as a business owner and CEO. Making more strategic and aligned decisions is just SO MUCH simpler when you have confidence and clarity.
There were lots of ideas and tips about marketing that I wouldn't have thought of myself. I don't know that this project would have actually happened yet if it hadn't been for you. So thank you.

"Within two or three months of working together I actually had income to distribute and pay myself! I've never had that before. I have a new sense of security that I can run my business successfully."
My main problem was maintaining consistent income. My bank account was very confused.
Sometimes there was money in it and sometimes there wasn't. I felt like I spent years just floundering, wondering what it was doing wrong, without a clear plan of action.
I knew I wanted to make the commitment to work with you longterm. Before that I had been taking short term courses where I felt like I had just a piece of the picture. I needed the ongoing support and someone to help me see the big picture as well as all the tiny steps in between.
Within two or three months of working together I actually had income to distribute and pay myself! I've never had that before.
I have a new sense of security. I know I have this. I'm confident that I can actually support myself and that I can run a business successfully.
You've got lots of energy and passion and enthusiasm, but you also have lots of tools in your pocket and you're so generous with your time and with your support. I wouldn't hesitate to invite people to contact you.
"I am happier, much less stressed out and enjoy my business a whole lot more. Even better, people are starting to interact with me far more than they ever have in the past."
My business was not growing and I was frustrated and wanted to quit. Interestingly enough, I booked my first appointment with Jennifer as a strategy session. Turns out my strategy was solid, but my mindset needed a LOT of help.
I was one of those entrepreneurs who was sure mindset wasn’t an issue. That all I needed was numbers, a good offer and great copy and I could make my business work. Even when that wasn’t working, I couldn’t see how mindset played any role in my stuck-ness.
I felt like I was spinning my wheels and that I was the only person in the world who couldn’t figure out how to have an online business. Because I’d had a failed business in the past, I started out a new business with a sort of chip on my shoulder and think that deep down I never really believed the new business would work either.
One morning I was journaling about my business and how frustrated I was by it. I was just letting it all pour out, you know? And then, as clear as day, I realized a connection between an old belief and a current problem. A situation I’d never even recognized as a problem before.
It was like the floodgates opened. From then forward my entire life felt lighter and I was able to look at things with a new perspective.
I enjoy working in my business again.
I am happier, much less stressed out and enjoy my business a whole lot more. Even better, people are starting to interact with me far more than they ever have in the past.
This will be the best money you will spend in your business. You will get more results, much faster than the same money spent on ads, platforms or other services. I wish I’d done it years ago.
As I began working with Jennifer, I immediately started to shift my mindset around really enjoying the journey and the process of growing a business.
When I started working with Jennifer a little over a year ago I was in an incredibly overwhelming place in my business.
As I began working with Jennifer, I immediately started to shift my mindset around really enjoying the journey and the process of growing a business. The feeling of overwhelm was replaced with joy around being the CEO of my company and what that looks like and really showing up for the occasion. Because of this I was able to gain this ultimate clarity around what it is that I want to do.
Working with Jennifer was an eye opening experience and I recommend it for everyone! Her ability to be able to parse out the mindset pieces that allow you to move forward beyond your own self sabotage is just fantastic! She also has great business expertise and acumen!
The benefits are just amazing when you work with a business coach. As a coach yourself you know it's so important to be able to have somebody who you can also lean back into. Who you can gain perspective from. Who can can be your biggest cheerleader. Someone who can help you see clearly through the haze that sometimes presents itself.
So... work with Jennifer! It's an amazing experience. I highly recommend it and where you will be a year from now versus where you are now or where you will be three months from now versus where you are now is night and day.
Throughout the last year my business has become an actual business where I’m marketing well, growing my list and I have consistent income and clients.
As I reflected on my first year of business I realized that I wasn’t enjoying it anymore. I started my business because I was passionate about helping women but what was the point if I was just miserable all of the time?
I was on an emotional roller coaster all of the time. I was so caught up in the ups and downs. I would get so excited that the ‘next thing’ was my big break. I would emotionally get so down on myself and criticize myself thinking that it wasn’t going to work. I would think horrible thoughts.
I don’t think I knew what I needed to know or do until we started to work together.
Upon reflection of our year together the biggest thing I took away was understanding that I have can’t love my business when I have clients and hate my business when I have no clients. I'm in it for the long haul and I have to be unconditional with my emotions around it. It was about feeling good despite the conditions of my business.
As well, I didn’t realize how deep my money and success issues were. The realization of the beliefs I had around how money had to come in and what it would take (that I had to work really hard) were really big for me.
I now have the confidence to know that I am in this for the long haul and therefore I can trust the natural ebb and flow of business instead of getting upset if something doesn’t go the way that I thought it would.
I don’t take things personally anymore. It doesn’t mean my business is going to fail. I can now get over it and move on.
So many of the lessons that I was learning in business, is what I teach my clients around losing weight and their health. When you relax into it and you let it go, that’s what you have the space for it to happen.
Throughout the last year my business has become an actual business where I’m marketing well, growing my list and I have consistent income and clients.
I’m so grateful that Jennifer had patience with me and allowed me to be where I was and learn the lessons I needed to learn. I needed to learn through experience because that was where I was making the concepts and skills that I was learning, real.
I’m really glad that we worked together for a year. There’s something about a year… there’s so much to learn and it helped take my foundation and amplify it! Growing your business is just easier with a coach! It’s such a great experience to have someone help you grow faster.
"I am a different person then I was 8 months ago when we began. I can’t even picture who I was. I am happier, freer, I am in control of my own life now. That is a huge thing for me. The weight that has been lifted off my shoulders is enormous."
If you had of asked me 6 months ago if I would ever feel this light, free and confident and full of possibilities I would have never said it was possible because there was such a dark weight around me. When I started there was a restriction around my heart, weight on my shoulders and everything was foggy and gloomy. There wasn’t a lot of belief in myself. I was very unconfident and felt unsure about myself.
But I knew deep down there was something more and you were the perfect person for the job to help me.
Now, I see the world completely different than I did before.
I am a different person then I was 8 months ago when we began. I can’t even picture who I was. I am happier, freer, I am in control of my own life now. That is a huge thing for me. The weight that has been lifted off my shoulders is enormous.
I received exactly what I needed out of working together. I don’t believe I would have gotten the results that I did without working together (and if I did it would have taken much longer to get there).
If I can move this far in 6 months, the world is my oyster! Anything can happen!!
YES! I recommend working with Jennifer 110%! You are my favourite manifestation. You have changed my life in ways that I never thought could possibly happen. I know that there is nothing that can come into my life that I won’t be able to get through. There’s nothing to worry about and to know that I have control over my life and that things will always work out and to have that belief… that is invaluable.

"I didn’t realize how my own life would improve so much from business coaching. I feel like I am more confident. I know what I stand for and how I present myself. Now I have 1-on-1 coaching, online programs, in person group coaching programs and an intern!"
What really helped me take the bullet train in my business was working with Jennifer. It made a big difference. It was a good investment in myself, my business and it all comes back. I would not be where I am right now if I didn’t hire her. Now I have 1-on-1 coaching, online programs, in person group coaching programs and an intern! I run my business on a schedule that works for me to be able to pick my son up from school and spend time with him.
Jennifer was a tremendous help when I was going through the branding process of changing my website and creating my packages and offers (which gives me stable income). My branding reflects my personality and the work I do really well. In the beginning, I was all over the place with who I was trying to serve. But I now know that if the message tries to reach everybody, it doesn’t reach anybody.
The second thing Jennifer really helped me with was the mindset. I had done some exercises before but I didn’t realize the magnitude of how important it is to be in the right mindset and to choose on purpose to feel good and work from there. The mindset work was so powerful that I brought it into the work I do with my clients.
If I had tried to do this on my own, it would have taken me 3 to 5 years to figure it out. It’s not that I was lacking the tools I needed or didn’t have access to the information (I had done over 10 online courses), it was a matter of having someone with the experience and knowledge help me come up with a map for my business that I can follow.
Once you know where you want to go, with the help of an experienced coach you can get there faster with a built in system of accountability. It is easy to get into overwhelm because there is so much you need to do and therefore it is easy to get off the wagon. But when you meet week after week and you have weekly goals that keep moving you closer to your final destination... things get done!
As well, I didn’t realize how my own life would improve so much from business coaching. I feel like I am more confident. I know what I stand for and how I present myself. I think it is as much as a personal growth as it was a business growth.
When I first met Jennifer I felt like I was in the middle of the ocean not knowing where I was. Now I who I am and I know where I want to go. It was an absolute pleasure working with Jennifer. Jennifer was very approachable and I felt very connected with her and that she respected my ups and downs. Jennifer is an absolutely fabulous coach.
The most dramatic shift I’ve experienced since working with Jennifer is in myself. When I first began coaching I was feeling lost and hopeless. I now have a solid plan for my business which includes hiring an employee and I’m reinvigorated about my business and my life.
I’ve been working with Jennifer for three short months but the changes I’ve been able to make in that time are huge! I really enjoy working with Jennifer. She is always cheerful and focused intently on what’s going right! No matter how frustrated or overwhelmed I was when I got on the call, I always got off feeling energized and optimistic.
The biggest challenge that I had to overcome in my business (and my life if I’m being honest) is that I was in hiding. I was scared to show the world my true self and so I kept myself small. From the very first day of working together, Jennifer encouraged me to take big action and put myself out there.
At that point I trusted her more than I trusted myself so I just went for it! Within a few weeks I was hosting a networking event at my office filled with other likeminded professionals. It was a blast and I received such positive feedback. It’s helped position me as a leader in the community.
I’ve begun developing what I know will turn out to be strong and lasting referral relationships that will benefit my practice for years to come. It’s changed how I see myself as a practitioner and it’s given me so much confidence.
The most dramatic shift I’ve experienced since working with Jennifer is in myself.
When I first began coaching I was feeling lost and hopeless. I was focused on the hard and negative and really struggling to make any changes. Not only is my business growing but I’m growing. My relationship with my family has dramatically improved, I now have a solid plan for my business which includes hiring an employee and I’m reinvigorated about my business and my life.
I now have a solid grasp on what I need to do to market my business.
Jennifer gave me direction and helped me create a plan. I was so stuck. I truly needed Jennifer’s help and it has made all the difference! I highly recommend Jennifer’s services! She gets right to the heart of the problem so you can start moving forward and create the business you want.
I found the confidence I needed to be unapologetic about my pricing and my clients have responded to it in amazing ways... So much so, that I recently realized I have a fully booked schedule! How awesome is that?
I met Jennifer in late 2014 and we started working together because I had no clue on how to grow my business. I had spent some months trying to figure it out by myself but it was not working. I felt confused and I didn’t know what the next step was.
She taught me about marketing principles, planning structure and the right mindset I needed as an entrepreneur to feel fulfilled and create a creative, amazing sustainable business…
And IT WORKED!
In the past 2 years I’ve polished my personal brand, I’ve planned out my marketing strategies, I’ve discovered that business can be FUN and that the more I enjoy it the greater are the results. I found the confidence I needed to be unapologetic about my pricing and my clients have responded to it in amazing ways... So much so, that I recently realized I have a fully booked schedule! How awesome is that?
I now understand the power of my decision of hiring Jennifer in the early stages of my business. This gave me a solid foundation from where to grow from and the incremental growth has allowed me to adapt and learn even more.
I can’t recommend her work enough. The energy she puts into her work is contagious. She is really passionate to help coaches like you and me to grow our businesses and create greater impact in the world. If you are just starting up or you need to move into the next level, this lady is the one!
"Since working with Jennifer I now have goals. I know what my day looks like. I’ve designed my business around my desire to travel. Each day I’m growing, and I’m consistently making money for the first time ever."
I first met Jennifer when I signed up for a KIVA appointment with her. At the time, I was about a year into my business. I wasn’t clear what being an entrepreneur looked like, I’d taken a high-end online business and marketing training course and even after it, I couldn’t escape feeling overwhelmed and unclear.
When I’d sit down at my desk for the day, I didn’t know what I was supposed to do, and I mostly spent a lot of time getting nothing done. Thinking back, besides lurking Facebook and looking at business trainings and sending the occasional personal e-mail, I don’t remember how I spent my days.
And that’s not even talking about the sporadic sixty dollars every few months I might have made (in a series of good months).
After the KIVA appointment I interviewed other coaches, trying to find a lower price than Jennifer’s programs. Some of the interviews were very spiritual/intuitive, and left me feeling like I was moving backwards in my own baggage, and not forward in my business. The other interviews were so forceful in business that I didn’t feel joy or excitement, just pressure. And after a few interviews, I still couldn’t shake the knowing that I needed to go with Jennifer.
So I signed up. I put my money where my heart was, and for the first time, I invested my own money in my growth.
The process I went through with Jennifer was intensive. The meetings were so deeply truthful that for the first few months I needed to sleep after each of them simply to process what had been said. And yet in those months, it was like I was able to unravel the spiral of my beliefs, limitations and programming, and begin a journey in the clear direction of the life I wanted to lead.
Since working with Jennifer I now have goals. I know what my day looks like. I’ve designed my business around my desire to travel. Each day I’m growing, and I’m consistently making money for the first time ever. And beyond that, I know what to do to grow my income.
I know that it’s a big investment to coach with Jennifer. And I’m not going to say that in X months, you’ll have paid it back, because your process with her may move at a different pace than mine.
But what I can say, is that I went from extremely little clarity, self-belief and income, tied to huge amounts of stress, fear and sales-anxiety, to knowing exactly what I need to do and being excited and joyful while doing it, in 6 months. And I’d bet that if you take the leap with her, with yourself and with your business, ready to give it all and just go for it, that I’ll find you showcased in one of these success stories so, so very soon.
“I committed to the Invested Mama concept; shed the fear that had been holding me back, and within weeks everything began to change. Most importantly, my vision is now crystal clear and I finally feel like I’m doing what I was put here to do.”
Jennifer and I began working together around the middle of March 2013 (Wow…has it really only been 10 months!?). I’m almost 40 years old (yikes!) and I have been gainfully employed in my industry for nearly 14 years. But, truthfully, I don’t think I really began my career until Jennifer and I began this process. The shift has been truly magical. I went from busily “doing” to strategically “progressing.” I’ve gone from striving for perfection in pursuit of others approval, to striving for excellence because I believe that I have value and a voice that needs to be heard. As Jennifer says, “It’s never just about the marketing.” How true.
As a financial advisor, I was trying to be all things to all people. I was being pulled in many different directions, both by a diverse group of clients and by several of my peers who thought they knew what was best for my future. I was a perpetual pleaser and I was afraid to say “no” to anyone or anything. Furthermore, I had fooled myself into believing that I could not afford to focus on any one type of client, but rather that the only way to build a successful financial planning practice was to take on any new client that came my way.
Jennifer encouraged me to think about the clients I truly enjoyed working with and why those particular clients gave me such satisfaction. She made me take stock of my strengths as well as my weaknesses and identify where my time was being wasted and what I was doing to create that reality. She has an amazing way of asking the questions that lead to true insight, letting you arrive at the answers that she probably already could see herself. She can be sneaky like that! She also forces you to challenge your assumptions and question why things have to be the way they are.
Successful people always say, “Live your passion.” The trouble with that little piece of advice is that no one ever tells you just how to go about doing it. Jennifer provided the instructions for me. Once she helped shine a light on a better way to move forward, it was impossible not to get excited about going down that road. Once I got clear about who I wanted to serve and how I was going to serve them, then I just had to get out of my own way.
I committed to the Invested Mama concept; shed the fear that had been holding me back, and within weeks everything began to change. Not only did I start attracting more of my ideal clients, but I was also approached to write a weekly article for our local newspaper on financial concepts. I’m about to launch a website and a weekly Invested Mama Minute series of online videos. My Facebook page has nearly hit 300 loyal fans and I have been invited more than once to give a keynote address on getting R.E.A.L. with your money. Most importantly, my vision is now crystal clear and I finally feel like I’m doing what I was put here to do.
Having Jennifer’s guidance, support and fearless attitude has been the difference between simply continuing to be busy and building a business that I am proud of each and every day. There is no doubt in my mind that I would be starting 2014 in a totally different place in both my life and in my business without the work we have done together. She has pushed me out of me comfort zone, held me accountable to my own potential and, for that, I am eternally grateful. And like she says, “We are really just getting started.” How awesome is that?
“By changing what wasn’t working, I was able to reduce my work hours by half. I have more free time to spend with friends and family while making the same or more money, with solid plans in place to continue to earn more while enjoying life!”
I have been working with Jennifer since September 2013. I wasn’t 100% sure in the beginning if hiring a coach was the right choice for me. I quickly realized just how little groundwork I really had completed and the effect that had on my results. I was working 100-hour weeks, did not have a game plan and was running on the seat of my pants most days. I was operating in survival mode and was overwhelmed and asking myself most days “is this worth it? Maybe I should just go back to work for someone else”.
With Jennifer’s help, I was able to take a clear look at where my business was currently and where I wanted it to be. The most important aspect to me thus far was looking at what wasn’t working in my business – what was inauthentic and causing struggles and strains in the business. By seeing those and clearing them out, I was able to focus on who my market really is; the people I really enjoy working with. Instead of marketing to everyone, I now market to my audience and am able to see clearly what clients will be a perfect fit.
The changes have been dramatic and profound for the business and for me. By changing what wasn’t working, I was able to reduce my work hours to ½. I have more free time to spend with friends and family while making the same or more money, with solid plans in place to continue to earn more while enjoying life! I am focused on where I want to go with my business and with Jennifer’s help, every day I am seeing better results; I am more engaged and doing a better job as a coach because of it.

Working with Jennifer has changed my life – business and personal – in ways that cannot be put into words. I feel more stable, confident and calmer than I have in years. I realize how much I didn’t know. With Jennifer’s help, I am on the path to creating a life I didn’t believe was possible and reaping the benefits of being self employed.
“I believe in my products, I have more confidence with charging the rates I deserve, and I am living the life I have always dreamed. Now, I am busy doing what I love and I know that I am going to make a great living coaching.”
I have been working with Jennifer since September 2013. Before that I was struggling with my marketing. I was trying to build my holistic nutrition practice, but I felt like I was spinning my wheels. I knew that I had great services and a health message to offer, but very few people knew or understood my business.
Last summer I saw one of Jennifer’s Magic of Marketing videos. She was talking about ways to improve your marketing skills and I instantly knew that I needed her help. Working with Jennifer has been like no other experience. She supports me and pushes me out of my comfort zone so that I am continually moving forward to reaching my business goals.
Before working with Jennifer, I didn’t know who my ideal clients were, I had a logo that didn’t really capture what I was doing and my services were not packaged in an efficient manner. Jennifer helped me get a clear business vision and supported me through a total brand change. Now I have a brand, logo and website that I love and more importantly one that speaks to my ideal clients.
Since working with Jennifer:
- I have increased my rates.
- I am heading into my most profitable month and year of my business.
- I am busy running my programs, not making failed marketing attempts at searching for my next client.
- I have systems in place that are helping me be more efficient and thus save time.
- I have a greater understanding of social media and its powerful influence in helping me reach more people with my message.
- I have a marketing calendar that keeps me on track.
- I am in the process of doing my biggest program launch which is pushing me out of my comfort zone and I am having so much fun doing it!
- My mailing list, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn online communities are all growing daily with targeted leads and prospects.
- I have more free time and more clients.
I feel like all of the pieces are finally coming together. Having Jennifer as a marketing coach has helped me become a better health coach. I believe in my products, I have more confidence with charging the rates I deserve, and I am living the life I have always dreamed. Now, I am busy doing what I love and I know that I am going to make a great living coaching. Each day I get to support people toward reaching their health dreams.
If you are a self- help coach, counsellor, or guide and your goal is to spread your message to the masses (and have fun while doing that) call Jennifer now, don’t wait! You won’t be disappointed.
“I always remember that the function of marketing is to bring in the work! Jennifer's help and instruction has easily cut 3-5 years off my learning curve for this vital business function – and she helped make it fun!”
I started my work with Jennifer in May of 2013; it began with my recognition that I needed the accountability and guidance of a coach as I committed to building a thriving business. My weekly meetings with Jennifer were just that – and Oh So Much MORE!
Her spark and passion for helping came through in every session; always offering next actions and steps to move me forward in my journey to a successful practice. She seemed to understand quickly the unique challenges of both my profession, but also my particular practice situation and set-up.
I believe her experience as a committed and growing entrepreneur herself is a great asset that any business can benefit from – how lucky our self-help industry is to have her!
She has helped me start smart and run well in terms of my marketing efforts, but also as the leader of my company. She helped me lose the fear that I am not “doing it right” and embrace a mindset that will continue to create success well into the future.
I'm stubborn so it took a while... but the new mindset has changed everything!
• I have a become a much more insightful, flexible, and focused business woman.
• I spend my time on the most important tasks that drive my business and my passion. I say "Yes" when an opportunity makes sense, and "No" when it doesn't. I am clear on what needs to be done to achieve my vision (and it's a BIG vision)!
• We have created a beautiful brand that I love and stand for whole-heartedly, a robust vision and plan for my career and practice, a set of marketing strategies that work for me and are manageable for a busy practitioner juggling many duties.
Jennifer also encouraged me to recognize and celebrate my victories, something I would not allow myself before our work together.
Victories of note:
• I have twice as many patient visits in May 2014 as in May 2013!
• My email list has tripled in the last 2 months, concurrent with the implementation of just ONE project. Not to mention the rapidly growing Facebook fans and LinkedIN connections.
• The net worth of my company is finally moving in the right direction; and it's gaining momentum!
Without Jennifer, I would have been flailing around for God-knows-how-long, throwing good money at bad marketing.
If you are a person who is not clear on the hows of bringing in the clients and the work, get a coach. If you want to implement quickly and have fun while you're at it, Get Jennifer Trask. She's a gem!
"Not only does she have great expertise but Jennifer is a contagious burst of positive energy who teaches you that with a bit of hard work and discipline, anything is possible.”
"I have been working with Jennifer Trask for over a year and she has most definitely had a big impact on my business. New to being an entrepreneur, I was at the point where I had a lot of ideas but needed some guidance into bringing these ideas into fruition. Jennifer has taught me how to create systems that help the business operation run more smoothly. Her expertise has helped take the stress out of my own trial and error while helping me achieve the vision I have for my business.
Not only does she have great expertise but Jennifer is a contagious burst of positive energy who teaches you that with a bit of hard work and discipline, anything is possible. Over the course of my journey with Jennifer she has been a marketing coach, life coach and a friend and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who wants to take their business to the next level."
"I have earned my investment back already and I have implemented only a fraction of her marketing plan."
"I am experiencing many changes in my life and as I reflect on a pivotal point of this transformational process, Jennifer Trask jumps into the picture. Her unbridled enthusiasm as a business coach is part of her calling card. In the space of three months I have learned far more about what technology can do for me than I thought possible.
My confidence in presenting myself to the public has grown in leaps and bounds. And, because of Jennifer’s patience and attention to detail, I was led into the 21st century of marketing my business.
Jennifer revelled in the challenge as I was dragged to the spot marked “GO” kicking and screaming. I have earned my investment back already and I have implemented only a fraction of her marketing plan. We have only just begun and I can hardly wait to see what’s next in The Plan for success."
"She has an amazing ability to help you focus on what needs to be done while motivating and supporting you to do the things that you may find difficult and out of your comfort zone."
"Before working with Jennifer, I had worked with others to help me get my message out there. However, I was not getting what I needed to grow my business the way I wanted. Jennifer helped me gain clarity about who my ideal client is and what exactly I want to offer.
I have learned so much about marketing my business since working with Jennifer. She has an amazing ability to help you focus on what needs to be done while motivating and supporting you to do the things that you may find difficult and out of your comfort zone.
Jennifer is a visionary and even though she has a structured approach, her coaching expands and grows with you. Jennifer’s positive energy and enthusiasm are contagious. I feel that Jennifer understand who I am all about as a practitioner of the healing arts and a self-help coach. I am excited to continue my work with her and grow my business in ways that are beyond my wildest dreams!"
"The work we've done together has enabled me to talk about my
business with clarity and confidence."
"I know how to write a marketing plan. I've written many for other businesses. But I wasn't doing it for my own business, so I hired Jennifer.
After working with Jennifer I am now clear about the services I offer and to whom I offer them. Jennifer is enthusiastic and asks the right questions to get to the right answers. She breaks down a somewhat overwhelming task of creating your marketing plan into manageable activities.
The work we've done has enabled me to talk about my business with clarity and confidence.
I highly recommend Jennifer's services to anyone who is committed to directing their business towards more sales and more of your desired clients."
"Her positive attitude has been so inspiring and is something that I look forward to every week :)"
"My partner and I recently opened an alternative health clinic in Kelowna, BC. We have been working with Jennifer over Skype for the past 3 months, and it has been an incredible experience. Jennifer has helped us get really clear about our vision and our marketing plan.
Our strong suit is health and healing, so we tend to struggle with the business aspect of running a clinic. Working with Jennifer, and having her share her experience and passion for marketing, has been incredibly valuable. She has helped guide us to become far more structured and purposeful in our marketing approach.
We have learned so much about successful marketing, which has helped us immensely in generating new clients in our first weeks of business. We have just begun to use some of the tools that we have created with Jennifer, which have been very successful in getting our name out there, and generating business. I can’t wait to start implementing our full marketing plan! Her positive attitude has been so inspiring and is something that I look forward to every week :)."
