Jennifer Hall

Hi I’m Jen, The Life Buddy. Business Creation Coach, Mindset Master and Fear Fixer! I help ‘hungry for more’ women create the life they want, be who’ve they’ve always wanted to be in a business that is a true reflection of themselves. Do you have goals? Where are they? – In a drawer somewhere, on a pad, in your head? Do you even like goals? At times, do you find yourself lost on your journey and demotivated? I’m an expert in helping business women create from their true, authentic self and saying ‘balls’ to what anyone has to say about that! I’m all about nurturing ourselves and stepping into our power and true purpose, because when we do that we give others permission to do the same. When we work from a place of truth, we can offer our most wonderful gifts and only then can we serve others in the most fulfilling way. Learn how to create goals that ‘mean’ something and stay motivated on the journey toward them!
