How can an ambitious womxn build a career that gives me freedom, create a lifestyle that I love, make an impact in the world, and build my influence without feeling guilty?
Welcome to Femmefluence Radio, where we’ll explore what it means to answer and achieve that question. Every week host Jennifer “Jen” Kem - serial entrepreneur, brand futurist and CEO, wife, mother, motivational speaker and someone who’d really love to be your friend - talks about how to decide and lead a values-driven life to embrace your path as a femmefluencer.
Jen shares the real stories and strategies she’s uses to not only create wealth (by building several multi-million dollar companies and helping others do the same), but even more importantly discuss the mental, spiritual and physical challenges that can get in our way on our purposed paths, and what it takes to overcome them and create success defined by us.
We’ll cover: leadership, wealth, career, health, relationships, resistance, success and healing past conflict and pain so that you can have anything you desire. We build longer tables, not higher walls.
This show is raw, real and honest, so get ready for potent conversations.

3 Key Points of this episode:
Your femmefluence your unique superpower, the thing that most highlights your gifts, talents and skills. We believe it's possible to lead and link arms and build longer tables for ourselves now and for generations to come. We believe it's our responsibility to learn how to work together so that we can do good things for our economy, do good things for the people that we serve and do good things for society. Tolerations are the activities and mindsets that eat away at our time, energy and money and keeps us from living in our Femmefluence
The Pink Slime Epidemic in Women's Leadership
Pink Slime is the #1 structure that holds women down and drives the ridiculous things we do to each other. In this episode, we dive deep into the mindset and structure that is Pink Slime and how we need to overcome it in order to rise into our leadership. Be sure to get your episode worksheet: Femmefluence.com/ep2
3 Key Points of this episode:
Pink Slime is a construct that affects all womxn, one that encourages us to doubt ourselves and tear each other down. We have to take ownership, stand up individually and together to fight this epidemic. Womxn who are more comfortable with male friends have usually experienced severe bouts of Pink Slime from other womxn. It’s easier to hang around the guys because they’re less petty, catty, dramatic and backstabbing. But this creates the problem that is not having strong female connections. In the world of Femmefluence it's our responsibility to lift up another womxn, and that it's our job to open up the playing field for any womxn who doesn't have the same privilege or opportunity then it’s their job to put the work in.
A Framework to Make Guilt-Free, Clean Decisions
Decision making is a clean process when based in your personal values. In today's episode, we dive deep into the framework I recommend every woman use to make guilt-free, clean decisions in everyday life. Be sure to get your episode worksheet: Femmefluence.com/ep3
3 Key Points of this episode:
One of the most defining moments of life is the day you realize that you’re in a situation that absolutely violates your values. Work life balance is a bunch of bull. It creates self-inflicted torture because you’re constantly trying to have enough of everything and it’s simply impossible to achieve. Living a life driven by values allows you to have anything you want without having to worry about feeling bad when you say no.
The Value of Women’s Autonomy: Conscious Affluence and Ethical Influence
When women bet on themselves, they create economies that not only grow their own personal wealth, they create influence that can be felt in their communities and in the world. In this episode, I break down how the value of Autonomy is the key to fully expressing and flexing your intellect and intuition in a bigger, bolder, more aligned way.
I also share the multi-million dollar mistake that helped me to rediscover Autonomy as my top value and why I use it to filter every single decision I make - and why it’s required for women to fully own their Femmefluence. Go here to get your workbook: Femmefluence.com/ep4
Key Points from this Episode
When women make money, they reinvest that money into impactful initiatives 70% or more of the time when compared to their male counterparts who traditionally reinvest 30%. Basically when womxn make more money, we invest in bigger things that change the world. Autonomy simply means self-governing. It's creating a way of life that becomes ours when we decide that our intellect and intuition are the absolute best assets we can bet on. I love to slay my day and then reward myself and my team with time off, designed by our individual goals and values. Autonomy is important because it allows us not to be controlled by an outside force. It’s not a shortcut to freedom. Instead, it's allows you to discern works best for your goals. When I left my corporate job, I needed to know in starting my first business, what I needed was to find a winner. And what I mean by that is I needed to find a business, not just based on my passions and my interests and my gifts and talents and skills but one that had a market.
Intersectionality: Supporting the Growth of ALL Women
Intersectionality is one of the most important values in my life, it’s linked to my reverence for justice and equity, and the need to feel that I have the same opportunity as anyone in the status quo to create a life of my own design, without societal barriers getting in the way. To create opportunities for women of all colors to link arms is a key value of Femmefluence. In this episode, I share the facts of how racial and gender discrimination for women of color is a major problem THAT WE CAN CHANGE and why it is so important that women as a whole work together to create equality for all women. This is an emotionally charged, possibly uncomfortable conversation. But that tension to take part of the conversation regardless of that fact is the work required for us to build longer tables together and to create affluence and influence at a level the world has never experienced before.
Connection: Friendship, Trust and Vulnerability sans Pink Slime
Our mission in Femmefluence Nation is to build longer tables - for us and the women who are looking for The Others like us. We want to shift the idea of “The Others” to “The Many” and shift minority thinking into the new status quo. Join me in this episode as I share the process that creates real connection between women to build deep, trusting, intimate, vulnerable relationships and eliminates pink slime from our interactions.
Key Points from this Episode
Pink Slime is the enemy of Femmefluence, and Connection is the Cure. The Halo Effect - when we grow together, we amplify our results The Butterfly Effect - when we focus on transforming ourselves, the faster the world around us transforms There’s a huge case for Connection: REALationships over REELationships - finding the relationships that are really authentic can be confusing in this world of over-sharing and comparitis. Loneliness is an epidemic, especially for women who identify as ambitious. I read this startling statistic recently that said lack of close, authentic relationships is as unhealthy as being a smoker. (Add that to sitting all day and as an ambitious woman I was like: damn, I’m in trouble.) For many years I had an issue with women because I felt women didn’t support me. I thought I was alone in that until I figured out that women often don’t support other women in general. And if you say otherwise, I am delighted you have women on your side! It wasn’t until I was in mid-30s that I finally figured out how to make really good women friends. But let’s be honest, they are few and far between.
Jennifers approach is very effective in simplifying cause and effect. Her wealth and experience served her well in communicating insights that will allow you to make superior choices in moving your business and life forward.
