My Greatest Initiation: Birth (+ NEW Workshop!)

One week ago, my oldest son Sean celebrated his 9th birthday. We were in Florida. I couldn’t resist the urge to WRITE about that experience of becoming a first-time mother.

I’ve committed to doing a lot more writing this year. Because it’s the craft that I love so much.

Here’s what I wrote …

At 10:51 p.m. on January 5, 2009, I crossed through a gate of INITIATION > motherhood.

My life would never be the same.

My Greatest Initiation: Birth (+ NEW Workshop!)

You should know that I was not that girl who knew she always wanted to be a mom. For many years, I was very much “undecided.” Prior to that, I was more in the NO camp.

My career aspirations seemed more exciting and worthy of my attention. Plus I had always been acknowledged for my leadership and success at work … I had a lot of doubts and fears about becoming a mother.

It didn’t help that my own mother told me that I probably shouldn’t become a mom since I was so “selfish.”

But something started shifting a few years after I got married.

I started feeling babies all around me. Started feeling a soul of a child ready to come through me. I started noticing children everywhere. In the past they used to come across as loud, wild nuisances … now, they appeared as magical angels of light (who are often loud!).

This also largely coincided with me diving headfirst into a 200-hour yoga teacher training. I was more in my body and more fascinated with the human body and soul than I had ever been.

I felt myself being pulled into a new dimension. A new chapter.

An opening emerged.

I stepped through.

After a few months of trying to get pregnant (and simultaneously doubting my body and relying more on science than spirit), I finally surrendered and TRUSTED.

We got pregnant that month. We lived in New York City at the time, but conceived in the place of my birth – St. Petersburg, Florida.

I was overjoyed. And also totally amazed that I WAS GOING TO BE A MOM.

Pregnancy was one of the most extraordinary times in my life. I was blessed to have “easy” pregnancies (I’ve had 3 now).

Having a natural birth (no interventions or drugs) was something I knew I wanted. I knew this even though my mother had told me when she was birthing me, she told the doctor to “kill her now” and that she gladly got an epidural when birthing my sister 4 years later. “I was reading a magazine when having a contraction – the only reason I knew I was having a contraction was because I could see the contraction on the monitor,” she told me.

No offense to those who go this route (for whatever reason!), but I wanted to feel EVERYTHING in labor and birth as I had spent so much of my life numbing, numbing, numbing – afraid to feel PAIN.

I saw this as a beautiful quest and one of the great rites of passage for me as a woman. I knew my body was designed to birth and I wanted to feel my power as my baby and I did what we both knew how to do.

I had to be willing to have many people tell me I was “crazy” for wanting to go this route.

I minimized the impact of those who couldn’t support my choice and instead surrounded myself with like-minded people.

I read books (“Magical Beginnings, Enchanted Lives” by Deepak Chopra was my fave at that time), watched “The Business of Being Born” (EYE-OPENING!) and assembled a birth team who would honor our wishes and would create a sacred, calm environment for the birth of my first child. I said “NO” to my mother’s repeated requests to be at the birth.

(TIP >> learn how to say NO with grace and firmness. I can help you here … keep reading.)

I followed my intuition EVERY STEP OF THE WAY even when what I was guided to do meant disappointing people or going against popular convention.

Sometimes my intuition led me to know more than “experts.” Like when I went into labor with Sean 2.5 weeks early and was told by the L+D doctor on call at the hospital that although I was having some contractions, the baby’s birth was days, if not weeks, away.

Even though this was my first pregnancy, I KNEW THE DOCTOR WAS WRONG.

How did I know?

Because I was in my body. I kept following the signs. Trusting the nudges I was getting. And connecting with spirit.

When Steven and I left that hospital, my body was full-on in labor … even though even he couldn’t accept it. I don’t think he felt fully ready to be a dad … he thought he had a few more weeks to prepare!

When we got home and he told me he was going to go to the gym, I looked at him like a women with fire inside of me and said firmly, “YOU ARE NOT GOING TO THE GYM.”

I promptly went into the bathtub in our NYC apartment and labored while Steven ate Chinese take-out (“Do you want any, Jenny?” he asked. “NO!” I groaned.) and timed my contractions.

Thank God my intuition told me to hire a doula because without her we wouldn’t have made it back to the hospital a few hours later. Steven would have needed to deliver our baby at home – that’s how quickly Sean was making his way into the world.

Our doula sped over to our apartment and helped me get dressed to head back to the hospital while I was in the hardest part of labor – TRANSITION. And my friend Kelly who was a doula in training also met us at the hospital to help me birth this baby.


Every contraction. (Like a giant wave forming in the ocean … growing in intensity until it crashed over me.)

Every centimeter opening.

And my body knew exactly what to do.

Knew how to open. Knew how to groan. Knew how to rest. Knew how to push.

My soul was fully alive as I joined forces with my baby.

We did it! We did it. We did it.

The last 9 years have flown and also been some of the most challenging of my life. Someone told me early on in my parenting journey – “The days can feel like they last forever yet the years fly by.” SO TRUE.

I’ve learned to sharpen my intuitive skills as a mother, woman and entrepreneur. I honestly believe my intuition is the most powerful gift I own – and I believe this for you too.

But it is SOOOO fucking easy to lose your connection to your intuition. Especially when you spend more time listening to everyone else over your own soul.

2018 can be the year you reclaim yourself and your truth and your divine wisdom.

This is my wish for you.

If you want to join me on this quest, read the PS below.

I’ve got your back.

Absolute love,

My Greatest Initiation: Birth (+ NEW Workshop!)

The First-Time Ever + Our New Ice Rink

If you’re looking for my boys this winter, they’ll be in our front yard skating on our new rink!

This ice rink was all Steven’s doing. He saw something I couldn’t see. I’ve learned to trust his vision and he’s learned to trust mine. We still freak each other out at times, but we have that foundation of faith in each other.

Our good fortune keeps growing beyond the beyond.


When I met Steven 15 years ago, I had recently ended a 2-year relationship. I had pretty much sworn off men so I could fully focus on my public relations career. I was working on a global campaign for my client Pfizer and traveling around the world with our celebrity spokesperson Pele, the soccer superstar.

But one Friday night in 2003, Steven and I met at the front desk of our huge apartment building in New York City. I had sworn off men remember, especially Jewish men since I had dated a few and they tended to eventually freak out that I wasn’t Jewish (my Shiksa Goddess appeal could only take us so far!).

Well there he was. And there I was.

I was closed off at first. But my intuition kept nudging me to pay attention to this man.

And my intuition is never wrong. It was right on that evening. I listened. And everything changed for the better …

Are you listening to your intuition? Or are you doubting it? Forcing things to work that simply aren’t meant to? Pushing too hard? Ignoring your body and what she’s telling you about people, your work, your world?

My greatest gifts, wins + growth have come from me honoring my intuition.

It’s time I help you tune into yours so you can be, do and have what you desire in 2018.

So … for the first-time ever, I’m leading an online workshop on INTUITION.

You’ve gotta be there.unnamed-2

P.S. The photo of me in this email was taken during my last mastermind retreat.

Want to join me + a few fellow ambitious women at my next retreat in Costa Rica, March 24 – 29?

There are a few spots left. Includes coaching with me, masterminding, 5 nights at our epic resort + a photo shoot.

Comment below for an application. Going to be MAGIC.

The Power of the Pause

As I write this, I’m overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It’s freaking HUGE. I’m in love.

Steven and I stayed the night in a hotel on Ft Lauderdale Beach while the kids stayed with his parents.

One word for you … MAGIC.


24 hours together.

To make it even sweeter, this getaway was during the tail end of my 2-week social media sabbatical + time off from work.

Holy wow.

I am a new woman.

I have a newfound appreciation for Steven because I’ve taken the time to get to know him again.

What his dreams are. What he’s afraid of. What we want to do together in this brand new year. How we can better support and love each other.

Life with young kids will have an impact on your relationship. Fact.

It’s easy to forget what it was like with just the 2 of us.

But now I remember again.

I’m grateful for my man and the close to 15 years we’ve spent loving each other.

I’m grateful for this PAUSE I’ve just taken in my work (honestly pausing is when the work truly begins).

I’m grateful I wasn’t afraid of becoming irrelevant for stepping away from social media for a bit.

I went INSIDE. Got cozy with my family. I know where I’m headed next. I’m in faith.

Whatever I missed I was meant to miss. And what I gained was gold. I will share much of this with you.

In the coming weeks I will reveal the next level of what I’m here to teach. It may surprise you … or not 😘

The power of the pause brought so much clarity and space in my head.

I am in flow.

I am home.

Sooooo excited about what we’ll create in 2018 + beyond.

Absolute love,
Jenny ❤️

I Released This During the Full Moon Last Night

I drove more than 2 hours yesterday to a powerful FULL MOON CIRCLE led by Sarah Jenks at her home.

Seventy women came together to claim our desires and release what no longer serves us.

My desire? Sacred truth.

What I’m releasing? The need to be popular or liked by everyone.

Ahh … I feel lighter already.

This week was (again) filled with lessons on boundaries, worth and listening to my intuition.

Why? Because I’m enrolling for my mastermind GLOW. This is usually an interesting experience … let me tell you why.

(New to the mastermind world? Check out my new video on if joining a mastermind is the right move in your business.)

I follow my instincts on who to personally invite to join my mastermind. I can sense which leaders in my community are ready based on how much they show up and participate.

And this week, my personal invitation to someone led to an awesome call together, which then led to her confirming her spot in GLOW. Hooray! (High five Aubrey!)

Totally exciting witnessing a woman stepping into her next level with a proven support structure and seasoned coach (me!).

And a few days later, I had quite another experience >> another candidate who looked awesome on paper not showing up for our scheduled call and not responding to the email or Facebook messages asking if she was coming … until HOURS LATER saying she didn’t know where the call was taking place (even though our scheduling system sends multiple reminders with the call location).

You can’t make this shit up.

Will I reschedule that call? Absolutely not.

Her lack of respect for my time tells me without a shadow of a doubt: she’s NOT my ideal client. (Remember this when you’re connecting with prospects!)

Here’s what I know to be 100% true:

>> People will treat you the way you allow them to.

>> When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.

>> Your body is speaking to you all the time. LISTEN.

Launching a mastermind is the most wild of adventures since it’s a premium offer.

What do I mean by premium?





5 star.

I’ll be honest with you, GLOW is an investment (an experience like this isn’t cheap nor should it be as you wouldn’t get the transformative results you could).



All participants in GLOW must feel that their business + sacred work can generate a return on the investment (and that return will come in various forms like money, confidence, deeper relationships, clarity of message, stronger boundaries). And by working the program, you’ll do just that.

And this is where most of you will fall away.

Investing scares the crap out of you because investment means you’re all in (like really all in).

And maybe I scare you just a tad too because you know I’ll fully SEE YOU + won’t let you hide. I WILL lovingly yet firmly call you on your bullshit. Because that’s why you hire me.

And if we’re being real with each other … deep down, you don’t believe that you’re capable of growing your business to the heights you SAY you want it to go.

You’re afraid of success … and what that will mean for your life and relationships. (Trust me, there WILL be changes but they are worth it!)

You’d rather immerse yourself in “busy work” rather than work that actually generates revenue, right now.

You’d rather default to the “I can’t afford it” excuse rather than ask yourself “how can I afford it?”

You’d rather ask for permission instead of giving it to yourself.

You’d rather join an online course for $497 so you can SAY you’re investing in yourself and instead get lost in the noisy crowd while the leader has no idea who you are.

You’d rather disqualify yourself thinking now is not the time and you’ll apply next time when your life is calmer (newsflash: I’ve been leading masterminds for 7+ years now and this NEVER happens).

If you’ve got a fire burning inside of you, YOU’RE READY NOW.

And the person who can help you RISE UP in your business is ME.

The journey we’ll go on together is called GLOW.

It’s designed for Gutsy Leaders Of Wisdom (get it?!).

There is nothing in the whole wide world like it. Nothing.

This is it.

This is the moment you’ve been waiting for.

Apply for your spot + a private call with me here.

Please ONLY click the link if you’re committed to investing in your growth. (And if selected for a call, you’ll actually show up because I don’t have time for flakes and neither do you.)

Because there is no growth without investment.

No growth without tension.

No growth without a decision.

Application deadline is coming up.

Apply here now.

You are guided and strong, if you choose to be.

Time to RISE.

P.S. I’m so proud of our GLOW alums!

“Working with Jenny has been uplifting, open and supported. She allowed space to grieve and heal. Jenny created environments of inspiration and guidance both professionally and personally. Jenny’s openness to allowing what is and what will be has made me believe in myself and my journey. For this, I am so very grateful.”

Coming Out of the Spiritual Closet … Again

Here we go again …


Time to expand.

Time to go deeper.

Time to become more VISIBLE.

Time to SURRENDER some more.

The best way to describe what I’m doing is that I’m coming out of the spiritual closet … again. I first wrote about coming out of the spiritual closet a year ago. It was a huge moment for me.

And here I am again. Naked. Exposed. Ready to climb new mountains, including …

  • Closing my free Facebook group of more than 4,000 members and opening up a more curated group of students of my work (I’m choosing to cultivate a sacred circle of women who have read my book and/or signed up for one my programs, retreats or courses through the years)
  • Interviewing Danielle LaPorte for my tribe of leaders about the SOUL OF SERVICE
  • Starting a regular Facebook Live show on my Facebook page (Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. EST)
  • Opening applications for my mastermind GLOW (and evolving the program so we can serve more women yet stay committed to going DEEP together)
  • Leading several VIP Strategy Retreats for amazing clients
  • Channeling my deceased sister Julie to deliver a message to a client
  • Starting the homeschool journey for both of my boys

I’m writing this after having an extraordinary few days. My husband Steven took our 3 kids to his parents (and to the US Open!) while I opted to stay home and make some magic happen.

I organized the entire house – especially focusing on the playroom, homeschool space, and my office.

I rearranged stuff, threw lots away, had a call with my Facebook ads team (we have an awesome campaign coming at ya!), played with my new revenue model spreadsheet, and created the weekly schedule for our family (color coded it and everything!) including our meal plans. (I spent very little time on the Internet – no distractions!)

And I napped in my hammock. And slept in until 9:30 a.m. one morning!

Holy shit.

I told Steven, just give me regular open space and watch what magic happens. I’m grateful he gets it and gets me.

I need regular alone time. Lots of quiet. This means I must be willing to do things by myself, away from the masses.

If you need this too, speak up about your needs and desires. You don’t do anyone any favors by ignoring your true nature.

When you get quiet, you can hear the small, still voice inside. That voice is the most powerful guide you have. Listen and heed the call.

Listening to that voice is something I help my clients to do. It sounds so easy, right? But it’s not.

We’re conditioned from a young age to listen to everyone else over ourselves. To follow the crowd. To dim our light. To fit in. Don’t be too loud. 

But when you surrender to SPIRIT and the SACRED WORK you are here to do, WATCH THE FUCK OUT.

This is the magical art and science of being a LEADER. I LOVE TO TEACH THIS STUFF to a hungry audience of women on a mission, women who are tired of the bullshit they are seeing online.

What does spiritual business leadership entail?

A connection to SPIRIT and a willingness and discipline to go inward, daily.

The guts to make moves even when you can’t see all of the steps that lie ahead.

The courage to listen to your audience and solve their problems through your elegant solutions (programs, courses, books, podcasts, workshops, retreats, masterminds, sessions, VIP Days, meditations, the list goes on!).

The mindset to price your offerings to profit and to be excited to SELL and SERVE.

Being okay with the critics you attract and trusting that you can follow Michelle Obama’s advice here:

“When they go low, we go high.”


Selling is Serving

That’s why the next season of my work is focused on helping my clients GO HIGH in their work >> high vibe, high touch, high end.

The online space is a changing … and I see too many casualties of business where coaches are giving up because they do NOT have a sustainable business model. They are trying to appeal to the masses through a cheap approach. They don’t realize the complexity of trying to grow a business by selling $97 courses alone.

This GO HIGH approach is something I’ve tested out in my own business and am in love with. The quality of client I am attracting now is top notch. These women are committed to doing the work (and slaying the dragons that step on your path along the way).

I want this for you too.

Because burnout is a bitch. And so is not earning enough in your business to give your family the life they (and YOU!) deserve.

When I first “came out of the spiritual closet” by positioning my business as the go-to for spiritual coaches, creatives and entrepreneurs, I’ve gotta tell you: I was a bit concerned about claiming the word “spiritual.”

I don’t consider myself religious, but my spirituality has become more and more core to who I am.

I call in Spirit Guides.

Talk to angels (including my sister Julie).

Pray to God.

Meditate on mountain tops.

Keep crystals on hand.

Diffuse essential oils in my home.

Infuse spirit into my creations.

Have been a practitioner of yoga for 16 years and went on a life-changing trip to India this year.

Spirituality is one of my FAVORITE topics in the whole wide world (in addition to ONLINE BUSINESS + claiming your power as a LEADER).

People who love spirituality as much as I do are my FAVORITE people in the world.

I do my best work when I blend my FAVORITES into one juicy concoction.

And my results prove it.

Don’t be afraid to embrace your spiritual foundation and talk about it in your work.

Many of us have been conditioned to hide for risk of being misunderstood or shunned, but I’m here to say: do not WORRY.

Do not be afraid.

My spiritual relationship keeps me young, curious and wise.

My spiritual relationship is my biggest strength as a CEO, coach, wife, mother and human.

And it’s one of 6 golden keys that make up the strategic framework and crucial support for your beautiful, sustainable growth.

Because I know your mission matters.

And I want to help you MOVE YOUR MISSION FORWARD.
