I hired Jen because I needed help with my money mindset and sorting through self-sabotaging behavior in my business.
Jen has helped me to connect to what is truly important to me in my business: having fun. Since I've been focused on having fun, my business has been THRIVING. I can honestly say I've never felt SO good in my business.
Jen is gentle. She helps you to understand what's going on when you can't see it. She offers new and fresh perspectives. She's incredibly insightful around communicating in effective ways to our tribes. She won't hound you, she won't make you feel guilty. She is supportive, encouraging, and is always looking to pave the way with you. Jen will help you move forward.
Hire Jen if you want help on content creation - she's a master communicator. Also, hire Jen if you want someone to talk about your business to, to help you brainstorm, and to help you set intentions and follow them to expand and grow your business and vision.
I hired Jen because despite having an extremely successful first year after going freelance full-time I was feeling frazzled, over-worked and directionless about the future. I needed someone to force me to stop and think about what I was doing and be accountable rather than hiding behind my 'too busy' head. I'd been reading Jen's weekly letters for a long time and each one spoke directly to me. There was no doubt in my mind of how invested Jen was in her work because of the authenticity she shows in her blogs, emails and podcasts so I had none of the trepidation that I'd perhaps felt with other coaches in the past.
My work with Jen has completely redefined the way I think about my business. I've made two huge pivots which six months ago would have been unimaginable and for the first time I feel confident in my plans for the future.
Jen has also helped me to remember that I am in control of my business and has helped clear some of the big blocks I had around guilt, fear and decision-making. Not all of the changes could or should have happened overnight, but I feel like I've made the first steps in redesigning my dream business and I'm now excited rather than overwhelmed about the future.
Jen is so completely authentic and honest that I trusted her and felt at ease from the moment we went on our first call. Jen's not there to tell you what to do, instead she helps you clear space and delve deep into the aspects of your business that you may never have thought of before! I remember joking that the first few calls felt like therapy but they did - I came away feeling exhilarated, exhausted and bubbling with ideas. Jen is a business owner too so she really gets the pressures and being able to draw on her experience, plus knowledge really helps you to feel less alone in the journey.
Halfway through my work with Jen I felt like I'd already achieved 100% value from my investment. I'd come further than I would have dreamed and had made business decisions that I otherwise would have put off for years. If you're out to radically pivot your business, go freelance, launch a new project or even just get the type of clarity I was looking for, I couldn't recommend working with Jen enough.
I started working with Jen because I was feeling stuck. I knew I wanted more from my online space, I knew I had the capabilities and the passion, I just didn't know what to do, or HOW to do it! I needed the support and guidance from Jen to help me find out. I connected deeply with Jen's message of doing meaningful work and looking after yourself along the journey, so it was just the right fit!
Since working with Jen I've discovered a world of possibilities in my online business. Things I would never have thought could be possible for me to offer and sell, I am now strategising, planning and launching. I've uncovered the bigger vision I have for myself and my work, and started being unapologetically myself in my messaging; which in turn has attracted incredible people into my community.
I now make every business decision based on my intuition and core values, and it's paid off in every sense. Jen has helped me work ON my business as much as I'm working IN my business, always having the bigger picture in mind.
Jen is an incredible friend and confidante, who always offers just what you need in that moment. She asks great questions, and really encourages you to think deeper into situations and think outside the box with problem solving. Her coaching is collaborative - she doesn't preach, she doesn't tell you what to do, she doesn't give you a step by step plan. She encourages you to do the work and carve your own path, with lots of support and guidance along the way.
If you're ready to do meaningful work in your business, shut out the 'noise' of online marketing and learn so much about yourself and what you TRULY want along the way, you need Jen in your life.
I knew I have made a few mistakes in my business journey, which caused stagnation and unhappiness and I wanted to start fresh, but it felt so daunting to get myself moving ahead. I felt stuck and like I was drowning in all the (sometimes contradictory) advise that is available online. I needed help and accountability so I reached out to Jen.
With Jen’s help I have shut out most of the noise so I can concentrate better on what will help me move ahead and bring my ideas to life. I’ve stopped listening to all the “rules” and “should’s”. Each business is different and Jen taught me to do what feels right to me and what aligns with my values instead of blindly following the latest formula or blueprint.
Jen and I also talked a lot about fear, success, self-doubt, perfectionism, procrastination… I wasn’t quite prepared to discover all the blocks I had build around these topics. It might not seem important at first, but with Jen’s help I have become more conscious about how I have been holding myself back and what I can do about it. And most importantly, I feel like I have rediscovered my excitement for branding and print design. I can’t wait to launch my new business.
Jen is one of the kindest, most generous people I’ve met. She’s very patient, nurturing and genuinely cares for her clients and wants them to succeed in reaching their goals. Jen makes you feel good about yourself and your business ideas. She’s incredibly supportive and encouraging. And she dishes out amazing advise, which sounds even better with that lovely English accent!
If you’re thinking about working with Jen? Do it right now, you won’t regret it. Working with Jen has been one of the best business decisions I’ve made and I’ve just asked her to keep on working with me for another 6 months. Luckily she said yes.
I started working with Jen because I felt like I was at a place where I needed some one-on-one time to talk about my business. I was interested in growing my current physical services in addition to some form of online passive income. I've been a follower of Jen's blog for a year and a half and her blog has been one of the only coaching blogs that has truly resinated with me time and time again. Her free content, exercises, and podcasts helped me so much that I could only imagine what working with her one-on-one would do. Jen encourages you to be yourself and do what your gut is telling you. There's no sales pitches or ulterior motives with her - what you see is what you get. I can see through the marketing tactics of most other biz coaches online. Jen is the only one who ever felt truly authentic to me. Because I want to be as authentic as I can in my own work, I knew to invest in Jen.
When I look back on my notes from when I first started working with Jen, I realize how far I've really come. I was at a loss on what to post on my blog - now I've been blogging regularly for over 2 months and feel very content with everything I've posted. The biggest thing of them all was that Jen helped me discover 2 brand new passive income ideas and how to get them up and running in an authentic way. I felt so unsure and so unfocused with my business as a whole when Jen and I first started working together. Now I feel like things are worlds different - my business and goals are much clearer to myself and I feel much more confident. Before working with Jen, I felt like I had no clear message and that I wasn't doing anything game-changing to differentiate myself in a crowded industry. But working with Jen has really opened my eyes in realizing that I do actually have a message and that I am very different in this crowded industry. There are always things we have to offer, even if we don't see them initially.
The most genius thing about Jen's coaching style is that she gives you the space to think. It seems so obvious, but it's exactly what most people need - like a therapist for a creative business. Therapists allow you to talk through your struggles and view things in a different and more productive light. They give you advice without interfering with your own creative process. They know when to step back or jump in to the conversation. That's exactly how Jen is. She's your biggest cheerleader and your creative therapist all in one. She gives you the space to come up with your own ideas, but knows the right questions and comments to get you started.
I've told a few of my friends about Jen already and I explain how she gives you the space to think and be yourself. It's so important to have someone to talk freely with about your business - someone who's understanding of your industry, of the crazy internet world we live in, and someone who knows and has seen what works. And Jen is just that.

I started working with Jen because I recognized that there were certain things I wanted to accomplish in my business that I just wouldn't be able to accomplish or hold myself accountable to without outside help. After my first session with Jen I knew she was the right person to keep me on track towards my goals while still keeping a close eye on my quality of life, as well as personal and creative fulfillment. Jen really understands the challenges (and thrills!) that come with working for yourself, especially when you care about your business A LOT.
What have I discovered since working with Jen? So many things. 1) Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude. And ease! 2) My business truly thrives when I put my quality of life, relationship to myself, and desired lifestyle FIRST, and my muddled, noisy ideas about what I "should" do for a thriving business SECOND. 3) I have her words "You don't have to hustle for your self-worth" taped above my desk for constant everyday reminders.
Jen is hardly just a business or content coach. She's a friend, peer, mentor, mental & emotional massage therapist, and master jedi for anyone in entrepreneurship. I don't know quite how she does what she does but I know it's a mix of being truly present, holding space, always relating to and validating my experience, while also offering guidance, insight, and helping me unearth my own answers and brilliance. Also - practical tech tools and resources! The only reason my last launch went off without a hitch was because of her recommended tools and support
If you’re thinking about working with Jen? JUST DO IT ALREADY. If there is any part of you that feels creatively lacking, professionally stuck, stifled, spread-too-thin, or less than completely satisfied, she's the lady for you.

Jen is the creative coach dreams are made of. Jen and I have had incredibly productive sessions that have directed my first e-product and a business-brand model I feel totally inspired by! The best part? She's a doer. Whatever I've felt muddled and weighed down by in my own creative process is replaced with the clarity of Jen's coaching and guidance after our time together. I loved her post-session notes and "homework" assignments. In fact, I find myself referring to them today! If you're hiring Jen, you're not only hiring a professional with the direction, skills, and intentional mindset to help guide your path, but also a friend with the kindness to encourage you to think boldly, and act with intent and fearlessness.
When I decided to invest in working with Jen, I was struggling to balance multiple businesses and facing debilitating overwhelm. Jen provided straightforward, down-to-earth advice on concrete topics like content marketing, as well as more abstract issues like being an introverted business owner in a loud world. After our sessions, I was motivated and equipped to take actionable steps to address everything I had on my plate. I gained clarity toward my current brand, my vision for where I want to take it, and ideas for how I will get it there. I highly suggest making this investment in your business and your mindset.

I hired Jen because I was pretty new to online business and wanted to experience working with a creative coach to see what happened... Jen came across as an absolute diamond. Honest, friendly, authentic (though I hate using that word!). She was in business for the right reasons, so I felt that she was the perfect first coach for me. Working with Jen has given me clarity more than anything. She has given my mind the space to explore what online business means to me and what I want from being part of this crazy world. She's helped me figure out how to best manage my time, how to escape the overwhelming noise of the internet, and keep me focused on the reason I started my business in the first place. Which was to have lots of freedom, zero stress (ok, almost zero stress), and not to do the same things as everyone else because I'm 'supposed to' if I want to be 'successful'.
If you're confused, if you're struggling, if you're second guessing yourself, if you're chasing your tail and never catching it, if you're overwhelmed by everything, if you're not overwhelmed at all, if everything seems unclear, if you have big fears, if you have big dreams, if you know you can be better but don't know how to be, talk to this girl.

I hired Jen as I was looking for guidance and support in my creative work. Through our time working together, I’ve developed more confidence in myself and am now more clearly able to think through the direction of my creative work. Jen is great for helping you to direct your focus, giving open feedback, and helping you get to where you want to be.

Jen. is. UH-mazing. I had never worked with a coach before and was crazy nervous about our first call, but as soon we started talking, it felt like I'd known her for ages. She's super friendly (seriously, you won't meet a sweeter person!) and just has this relaxing calmness about her that makes you feel so at ease and comfortable.
I've grown so much over these last few months thanks to Jen. I started out like this timid, little mouse with major money mindset struggles and no idea of what to do next to officially starting my design business, gaining clarity and confidence with my brand, and landing my first major project and paying client. Not only did she provide incredible insights and advice, but she straight up karate chopped the mental blocks that were preventing me from moving forward. Jen knows exactly what questions to ask to get those gears in your head turning at full steam. For the first time ever, I was actually EXCITED about getting homework. Say whaaa??
Jen goes to infinity and beyond to help you out with whatever you need, and every call or email from her totally lights you up from all the encouragement, knowledge, action steps, and resources she gives. With her help and support, I'm reaching new levels in my business that I never even could've imagined.
Before working with Jen I'd really hot rock bottom with my business, although it was going well and I was consistently booking clients, I had an overwhelming feeling of 'is this it... forever?' I'd fallen out of love with it all. I needed to get myself out of that funk, find new ways to feel motivated about my business and to be more creative again.
Jen has helped me to realise I'm capable of so much more than I thought I was. I'm a lot more positive and excited about the year ahead I have with my business now, and know there is so much I can push to achieve outside of the basic services I've always offered. It's like I just needed someone to help me open my eyes and think outside of the box. If you’re thinking about working with Jen? Do it!
At the time I booked Jen I did worry that it was a lot of money, for essentially someone to hold me accountable to do the work. But she is so much more than that and worth every penny. Yes she is there to hold me accountable and I do have to still do the work myself, but my chats with her are always fun, almost like therapy and she always helps me to see things clearly and reach my goals and targets. Without her I know I would have put off so much and never made the ideas a reality - she has become my source of affirmation. Sometimes I think I have a good idea but I'm not sure to act on it, but when Jen also agrees and is excited too I know it's the right thing to do. I think everyone needs someone like that cheering them on along the way.
Working with Jen is amazing, and our coaching sessions are so so insightful and valuable! I really look forward to our calls every week - she's so incredibly supportive, has an abundance of tools and knowledge up her sleeve for getting strategic with business and creative content, and she's so real and down to earth with it too! If you want pushing, she'll push you, but if you want to go at your own steady pace, Jen will support you on that too! She's really tuned in to what's best for me and my business, and guides me in the right direction the whole time! I wish I could carry her round in my pocket! And I'm so thrilled I've secured a slot in her booked up schedule to continue working with her!

With Jen's support and encouragement, I did the unthinkable and launched a whole new facet to my online work. She talked me through all the steps from mailing list, marketing and launch to the practicalities of scheduling and backend support. She was there for all my moments of panic, confusion and celebration.
Within two days of my launch I'd booked up for the next two months. Without Jen's insight and encouragement, I'd never have taken this leap. She's truly in the business of making dreams come true, and I don't know what I'd do without her.

The biggest thing that I got from Jen was a huge release that I could blog about whatever I wanted. She really removed the mental obstacles that I had in place for myself, and basically performed magic like a mental chiropractor. After just a session or two, she was really able to break down the reasons I wasn't allowing myself to thing big with my blog, and completely obliterated those blocks for me. She also keeps me in check because I can kind of fly all over the place with ideas.
My experience with Jen was incredibly effective, grounding, organised, and clear. I was so confused about what to do with my blog, how to use my voice, produce content that is creative and useful and relevant, and she helped me work through things that just felt like "OH MY GOD I CAN ACTUALLY DO THIS NOW." And the best part is, it stuck! It wasn't a bandaid, she really permanently opened up my mentality about my online presence that resulted in me being able to be myself and provide for my viewers and readers what I want. I was able to start thinking bigger and really get going with what I want to do online. Our sessions were almost like therapy sessions, with actionable steps and lots of confidence building. YOU WILL TOTALLY LOVE HER
Jen is the bomb. She is an incredible resource and will tell you herself that when doing coaching services, you need to use your coach, and I recommend USING her! I email her probably once a day, and her responses are always so helpful, actionable, and practical. Practical with a "think big" approach. She is someone I HUGELY respect and I am so grateful to be able to work with her (I've signed up 3 times in a row because I just don't ever want to not have her!)

What I enjoy the most about working with Jen is her openness and supportive demeanour. She asks the right probing questions to get my thoughts organised, and my dedicated client page with my notes and recordings each week as well as the spreadsheets outlining my tasks really help to keep me accountable along the way.
But most of all, Jen’s personal insights and expertise are what has made working with her such a worthwhile investment and an effective and productive use of my time
Jen has a talent for seeing your own gifts and helping you gain clarity around them. She has acted as a close confidant and "mirror" to my thoughts to help me see who I am from the outside so I can easily translate this to into an effective message that resonates with my audience. Her guidance comes from a genuine place that you don't find often and definitely goes deeper than just checking off goals from a list. Our collaboration has given me more confidence to transform into the game changer that I truly am!

I'm definitely a different person than the one who started working with Jen, and I'm truly thankful for the impact her mentoring and coaching has produced in my life and business. I'm more confident, I'm clear on what I want, and most importantly how to get it

I really enjoyed our weekly coaching calls, it felt like I was talking to a friend who ‘got’ me. Having an outsider listen to my crazy ideas and dreams was really encouraging, and being able to put my dreams and ideas into practice is one of the things I valued most about working with Jen. Working with Jen was easy going, relaxed, full of information, ‘aha’ moments, and empowerment - and Jen really pushes you to get sh*t done (in a great way!)

Before I worked with Jen, I was very confused about my online content and focus. Jen showed me how to narrow my niche and serve my audience and potential clients as best I can through strategies which are very targeted and easily actionable.
The best part was digging into the strategies, bouncing off ideas and speaking to someone outside of my industry who could understand the pains I'm going through. She understood my frustrations and problems which was extremely helpful for me to move forward. Jen really showed me the right path, which I'm very grateful for
I hired Jen to help me focus on an area of my business that needed attention. Blogging. It is such an important part of my website and business but I found it difficult to find my voice with it, to direct the words I wanted to say to the audience I wanted to hear it. Each session with Jen was inspiring, uplifting and like talking to a friend I could truly trust who would give me honest professional guidance that I needed the most! I loved working with Jen and you will too.
Victoria Macken of Victoria Macken Photography
After several years of working running my own business, I felt a little lost and drained and wanted to explore other options of working as a solopreneur. Working with Jen I gathered a much clearer vision of what I want to do, how I can achieve that and what I need to focus on. I would definitely recommend working with Jen when you feel like you're stuck and need a push in the right direction
Melinda Borzsak of Melinda Borzsak

I hired Jen because I needed some help with creating business guidelines for myself to help grow and stabilise my income and to have a clearer focus in my business. Since working together I've definitely learned to think about my goals and business from a more "business" sense rather than just creating and hoping for the best. I've learnt the value of creating financial targets and packaged offerings. Jen has a very gentle and encouraging coaching style. She gives you the space and time to allow the things you already know to come to the surface.
Jen is very supportive and will help you set meaningful goals and objectives for your business that feel good to you. She is big on making sure that your business or creative work moves forward in a way that feels truly authentic to who you are and what you want to produce. She definitely understands the creative business owner.

I contacted Jen to guide me through the transition of leaving a full-time job at the University of Oxford to work freelance. I valued regularly checking in to discuss my ideas and concerns. With Jen's help, I was able to take a step back during a time of enormous growth and change. She helped me set some strong foundations to take my creative business forward. I look forward to working with Jen again in the future.

I hired Jen because I'd got to the point where I couldn't sort stuff out on my own (and all the noise on the internet wasn't helping). I needed to speak to a supportive, knowledgeable outsider who'd be able help me see, and do, things differently. Since working with Jen, I've learnt that it's OK to be me! And that it's OK to feel, and be, vulnerable. During my time working with Jen I think I've got better at trusting my instincts. I would describe her coaching style as friendly, fun, focused and insightful.
If you’re thinking about working with Jen? Do it! She's lovely! As well as having a deep understanding of creatives and their hopes, fears and challenges, she's empathetic and manages to be super-efficient without being 'all business.'
I hired Jen because I wanted to narrow in my focus in my coaching work. I have so many interests and insights that I was being pulled in too many directions. I already knew that the key to finding the answers for me in my business was to quiet down the external noise and listen within, but I was having a hard time doing that alone. Jen helped me discover which ideas really lit a fire within me and which ideas I could give permission to release. Jen's coaching style is incredibly comforting. When you work with her you know she has your back 100% of the time. You never feel like there's a "right" or "wrong" answer to any of her questions - there's just the answer that speaks most honestly from your heart.
Hire Jen if you want to gain the confidence within yourself to create a business that you love. While she might not be the right fit for you if you're looking for outside validation and direction, she's absolutely the right fit for you if you're trying to find internal validation and direction but are having trouble doing so.
