B.S. Slayer. Speaker. Coach.
With one part tenderness and two parts humor, I help people hone in on what’s most important and then make progress towards what truly matters–finding the determination to realize their full potential, in business and in life.
My passion is people, and my intention in life is to have a positive impact on the world. I believe that by focusing on being courageous and compassionate, we can share our best selves with others.
I spent the first 20 years of my career building expertise in Marketing and Startup Leadership. I grew the Cheezburger humor network to 16M+ monthly users and built the marketing machine that powered the lifestyle travel app, Trover, until its acquisition by Expedia in 2015.
Known as “endlessly optimistic” and a “bar raiser,” I excel at cutting through the clutter, creating a clear path forward, and navigating the ambiguity of complex business environments.
When I’m not working with clients, you can find me on coaching OrangeTheory Fitness classes, hiking and trail running the beautiful Pacific Northwest mountains, going to concerts and road tripping with my fur-baby, Charity.
More than anything, I love helping move forward – I hope you will become one of those people.
Coaching is not a replacement for mental health therapy, counseling, medication, or other treatment.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
