Recent events have caused your leaders and employees to question their lives and careers. You’ve lost many valuable people and the ones who haven’t left are not as engaged as they used to be. They’re contemplating what they want – and need – from their work and are ready to consider other opportunities.

We process our external world using our inner compass and inner dialogue.
Unfortunately, many of us don’t have as much clarity on our inner compass as we think, and we lack awareness of how much our inner dialogues are sabotaging our success. As a result, we’re overwhelmed when faced with change, are less resilient to stress, lose confidence and direction, and are less engaged.

Research shows that people who are purposeful in their jobs perform better, are more likely to avoid burnout, and are more committed.

And using inner dialogue to create purposeful stories drives engagement, passion, and success.

Not only will your people experience the game-changing discovery of their current purpose, but the rich group dialogue that takes place will also form a deep sense of connection, understanding, and unity.


The global pandemic has hit women particularly hard.

42% of professional women report they’re burned out.

1 in 3 say they’ve considered downshifting their careers or leaving the workforce completely.

They’re overworked, overwhelmed, overstressed and feeling OVER IT.

Research proves that companies with more female executives are more likely to outperform companies that don’t. You must support, retain and attract talented women in order to develop a culture that enables men and women alike to achieve their potential, employing the power of a diverse, collective genius.

Jenny has developed a comprehensive – yet easily achievable – set of microstrategies that anyone can implement. In these fun, high energy virtual experiences, you’ll learn action steps and take-aways that you can start using immediately to go from feeling overwhelmed and overstressed to on purpose and on your game!

FOR ENTREPRENEURS, BUSINESS OWNERS OR MLMS: Commander & Controller: When Stress Hits, Do You Really Feel in Command and in Control?

Success as an entrepreneur requires you be self-motivated, persistent, consistent, courageous, and committed to the long haul…in the face of stress. Unfortunately there’s just one person standing in your way: Sneaky Pete.

Sneaky Pete is the primitive, caveman brain we all have that’s left over from our humble beginnings as humans. He’s hardwired to:

LIVE IN THE MOMENT & BE ALL ABOUT PLEASURE. Sneaky Pete doesn’t care about next month’s sales report – he wants a break from work RIGHT NOW to watch tv, eat a bag of chips, and have a glass of wine (or two).

BE LAZY. Ugh, doing 5 outreach emails today is enough right? Following up with 2 people is plenty right? Sneaky Pete is designed to expend the least amount of energy possible.

WANT INSTANT GRATIFICATION. Sneaky Pete doesn’t want to create a plan or follow a system for long-term success – he’s impulsive, reactive, and just wants some quick hits right now.

BE FEARFUL. He doesn’t want to put himself out there or recruit…that requires talking to people and that could me rejection! Sneaky Pete doesn’t want to take risk or do anything new or different. He’s afraid of failure, afraid of success, and afraid of the unknown.

DOUBT. Sneaky Pete is the voice in your head telling you you’re over-shooting, you’ll never make it to the next level, never be at the top, and pokes holes in your dreams. Who are you to think you can be a big success at this?

In this session you’ll learn how to get Sneaky Pete OUT of the commander’s seat, and your advanced, entrepreneurial mind firmly in control. Jenny will reveal the chemistry and biology of stress, how it involves Sneaky Pete, and share several easy, effective strategies for better brain function, mindset, mood….and success!

Understand how stress and cortisol negatively affect thinking, focus, decisionmaking, communication, mood, and emotions.

Stop the loops of fear, negativity, and self-doubt.

Create a sense of confidence and control in uncertain times.

Stay focused on long-term goals, strategies, and objectives.

Shift your mood to being proactive, positive, and solution-oriented.

Tap into a powerful source of inspiration and direction.

Resiliency Rx: Stress-Proof Your Brain & Body

Research shows that people who lack purpose in life have a higher incidence of depression and anxiety and that they’re less resilient to traumatic events.
