Results happening

Everyone else has very well explained her expertise in business, marketing, and coaching, all of which I agree. I want to speak to the way she makes you feel. .....because in the end, that is what makes you choose someone to do things with in life. She makes you feel as if she has been patiently waiting for you to contact her so that you can finally make real progress. It's not easy to swallow your ego, ask for help, and take suggestions from someone else - let's be real. That is her gift, to make you feel comfortable and empowered. You are reading these reviews because you are already goal-oriented and have a desire to be different from the rest. Work with Jen - and you start seeing things happen in real life that you were only imagining. It is absolutely necessary to have someone hold you accountable for things when you are trying to make a new path. It's not a weakness. It's human. You need her. Do This.
Oh, Jen Hope. Where do I begin? As a 20-year software exec, I'm pretty set in my ways + have a realllly high bar for the people I collaborate with. Jen is, simply, the shit. She has a magical way of being able to (a) simultaneously call you out strategically when you're stuck in patterns or thinking too small, (b) dig down into the weeds of the execution details, AND (c) be completely in the moment--- including getting emotional with you when 'all the things' are stirred up because you care. So much. She cares too, people. And is whip-smart with laser beam insight. I can't imagine a better person to have in my corner, as I'm creating what I consider my legacy. Work with her, now.
Rachel Ford, Founder of Souldust
I was thrilled to have found Jen Hope and within a short introductory call, I felt that she was the missing piece I had been looking for. Not only did Jen's program help me identify a successful path forward with my business - but I was able to identify and take action against the weaknesses found in my business, build a stronger plan, learn more preventing downturns like this in the future, become more in tune with my personal health - how it aligns with the health of the business. I ultimately regained control of my business and have a renewed insight that I've never had before.
Oliver Sehulster, Owner, Pelicon Creative
If you're looking for a business coach who truly understands small business and marketing strategies, look no further! Jen was exactly who I needed to brainstorm and strategize with so that I could set myself up for sustainable success in a competitive Seattle market. She is straightforward, encouraging and realistic when it comes to setting goals and expectations for yourself as an owner, and for the business as a whole. Jen brought up important points of consideration that will propel me into the next level of success as a small business owner. Her experience and wealth of knowledge is superior to the large marketing companies that I had considered previously and her networking suggestions and connections are so valuable that I don't know what I would do without them. She is personable, professional and truly authentic. I left our strategy session feeling like I was on top of the world, and it doesn't stop there! A working relationship with Jen includes check-ins and accountability to maintain a steady flow of momentum to ensure that fire doesn't burn out. I can't sing her praises enough! You need a Jen Hope in your life! More importantly, your business needs a Jen Hope!
Ashli Haglund, Owner, Designer Skin Studio
Working with Jen has been a game-changer for my professional and personal development. She has an amazing ability to pick up on nuances of things I say or behaviors I repeat that help me to identify even just slight tweaks to my thought/work process that has made a big difference in how I work and the results I produce. She holds me accountable, helps me identify solid reasons to have confidence in myself plus identify what's sapping my confidence or energy. She helped me tremendously to get up and out of the day-to-day weeds to see the higher strategic thinking that's made such an impact on my efficiency, clarity, and the results I produce. I'd hire her again and again!
Chandra K, Marketing Director
I had reached a point in my life where joy was hard to find, and I had stopped making music. Changes in my job situation and the grind of everyday life had pretty much emptied my creative well. I knew that I needed something, some kind of a boost to help me get back on my way. Enter Jen! The impact of her guidance has been priceless and far-reaching. With her help, I found the confidence to make the changes needed to course-correct my life back to the direction I envisioned; I now have a job that I truly love and also have a small business in the works. I returned to writing music again, and am in the process of redefining myself in that realm. In a nutshell, she gave me the tools to dig myself out of a deep creative rut and I'm once again growing as an artist. I might have gotten to all of this on my own eventually, but working with Jen put me on the fast-track to living my best life! Life is too short to wait -- it was 100% worth it.
Emilia A, Front End Developer
Jen has helped me tremendously over the past 6 months. I have more clarity and focus on my business goals. Jen has taught me how to best structure my days which has increased my productivity and allowed me to grow my business. She is well connected and has suggested many great resources that are tremendously valuable. After our calls I have a new energy, Jen gives me the tools I need to be successful in my business. I appreciated Jen so much, she is a true bullshit slayer and I would recommend her as a business or life coach to anyone.
Tessa Lowe, Founder, Olo Organics
Jen has done a tremendous job working with me to help me find my true self. Coming into it with an open mind, she's allowed me to be the best version of myself all the while helping me find the hidden nuggets of understanding that was always trapped inside me! The work that we've done together has helped me immeasurably for my professional and personal future!
Wayne Shiu, Director of Product Marketing, Simple
I worked with Jen for almost 9 months on a weekly basis and she was instrumental in helping me navigate personal and professional life transitions. Jen helped me cultivate compassion for myself, think through things with a different lens and get clear on what I wanted and how I was going to get there. After every session, I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. She helped me to really know how to help myself. Jen is great if you're looking to go deeper on thinking through what you want to do professionally. She is great at asking the tough questions and helping you connect dots in ways you haven't done before. I wholeheartedly recommend Jen for anyone that knows they are unsatisfied and has an idea about what they want to do -- but feels stuck knowing what to do next to get there.
Jori Saeger, Product Marketing, Qualtrics
Catherine Carr - Vitamin C Creative
I accomplished more with Jen in just the first 3 sessions than I have with other coaches in 3 months. She did an outstanding job of helping me clarify priorities and break down big goals into concrete actions I could take now, not later. Jen refers to herself a bullsh*t-slayer, and it’s true—in an impressively efficient way, she helped me see how the stories I had been telling myself about the limits of my time, my talent, and my potential could be broken down and reframed. In a nutshell, Jen gets the mix of listening, asking, and giving candid feedback just right, so that each session was energizing, clarifying, and a clear step forward. If you’re ready to slay the BS and move your business forward, you need Jen in your corner.
Catherine Carr, Founder and Chief Inspiration Officer - Vitamin C Creative
Working with Jen has been a game-changer for me and my business! In less than three months, I've developed a new program for my clients, already implemented it and have also found a lot of personal fulfillment and more balance through our work together. I cannot say enough good things about Jen!
Tiffany Gonzalez, Founder & CEO, Keep Me Connected
During our coaching sessions, Jen challenges me to think and act as an entrepreneur and stretch my comfort zone as an artist. I literally owe my self-confidence, as well as business success to her.
Mary Pat Collins, Owner, MP Collins Photography
I have found Increased confidence in myself and my abilities. I've improved communication with others, focused on the right structures and create healthy boundaries. Thanks for always pushing me to work hard on the things that matter! My life is literally better because of working with you.
Mel, Director of Workplace Experience
Working with Jen has been invaluable for both my career and also my personal life. Jen sees me as a whole human and pushes me to see myself that way as well. She helps me uncover solutions to the challenges I'm facing, and also nudges me forward towards my goals.
Sarah E, Lifecycle Marketing Manager
Within the first few minutes of our session, Jen was able to answer so many questions about my business and marketing. She was also able to ask me questions that guided me to see what I needed to do next. She really helped me see the potential for what my business could become. She has so much understanding of marketing and was such a comforting listener, repeating back what I was saying in a way that helped me to really hear my own thinking. I left feeling clear, inspired, spacious and knew just what I needed to do next.
